WarnerMedia’s Ann Sarnoff has just come out and shut down the chances of the Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad from being released, which shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise.
She revealed this in a recent interview with Variety and she was pretty adamant in her claims that the film was never going to see the light of day.
We had been informed that the Ayer Cut was coming, and we were told that it was being worked on as we speak.
However, it seems as though WarnerMedia has put the breaks on the project, yet this is only as far as they’re concerned – HBO Max and AT&T are still the ones in charge.
This news shouldn’t really come as much of a shock to fans out there who are clamouring for the Ayer Cut to be released.
It also shows how out of touch the higher-ups at WarnerMedia are as far as the fans of the DCEU are concerned.
Ann Sarnoff shuts down the idea of the Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad from being released
Here’s what Ann Sarnoff had to say in her recent interview with Variety regarding the Ayer Cut:
We won’t be developing David Ayer’s cut.
Now, that seems pretty clear cut.
It’s a huge dismissal of both David Ayer and the fans who are desperate to see the actual cut he made of the movie.
Yet, as I said earlier, WarnerMedia were not the ones who green lit the Snyder Cut in the first place.
That was AT&T and HBO Max who got that project off the ground, and it looks like it’s a move that really paid off for them.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League has released and been already a huge success – both critically and for the streaming platform.
I’m pretty sure that HBO Max and AT&T will be looking at the numbers very carefully and it won’t be too long before they come to the conclusion that releasing the Ayer Cut on their streaming service is something of a no-brainer.
