Suicide Squad Director Reveals Sinister Joker Scene Cut from Film | IGN

With the news of Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League being slated for HBO Max in 2021, some fans have rekindled their interest in David Ayer’s original take on 2016’s Suicide Squad, which was originality supposed to end with a different villain and a much larger Justice League connection.

Director David Ayer, who recently revealed that his “heart breaks” for Joker actor Jered Leto because of the work he did on the movie that went unseen due to cuts, recently responded to a question on Twitter regarding the scene in Suicide Squad between Leto’s Joker and Common’s Monster T.

It’s a long scene and Joker intimidated him into killing himself.

As you can see, the original question comes with the hashtag “#ReleaseTheAyerCut,” which might now gain momentum in the wake of the Snyder Cut finally seeing the light of day. Many fans have always wanted to see the Joker scenes that got left out of the finished product. Even Leto himself told IGN, back in 2016, that “there’s so much that we shot that’s not in the film.”

With Justice League so much in the news now, we recently tracked the history of the Snyder Cut. Could it be that we wind up, at some point, if fan fervor persists, tracking the history of the Ayer Cut?
