With Zack Snyder’s Justice League officially confirmed for release, fans have a new goal: David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.
While not quite as famous as Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League, it is still fairly well-known that David Ayer was not happy with the final version of Suicide Squad. Over the years he has answered some fan questions about it, and even shared some photos here and there. Now, buoyed by the fact Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be coming to HBO Max, fans are rallying around Ayer in a similar manner.
Not nearly as organized as the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement became, the #AyerCut movement is getting its bearings. With some people reaching out to AT&T – the parent company of Warner Bros. – it was a tad surprising that a seemingly official comment has already arrived. When presented with a tweet saying, “Complete the gift and @ReleaseTheAyerCut Please, please, please,” AT&T responded with “One thing at a time.”

A tweet from another fan commenting on that tweet said, “This always this @ATT #ReleaseTheAyerCut #HBOMax” and received a response of, “Anything is possible. All it takes is a little magic.”

While both of these replies are still vague, they are at least an acknowledgment that fans still want another film. With outlets such as HBO Max in need of content, putting some money towards completing projects already in their possession is not the worst idea. Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, there is going to be a significant gap in completed productions, and writing a check to do some post-production may be an answer to that issue.
As AT&T said, however, ‘one thing at a time.’
