Suicide Squad Director David Ayer Trolls Fans About Deleted Joker Scenes

Directors often take the route to social media to tease about upcoming films or answer to fans’ queries and questions about their films. This time its Suicide Squad director David Ayer who used social media to tease and troll fans about deleted Joker scenes, joking about a fight with Superman and a Ragnarok battle.

Recently when a fan took to Twitter to ask Ayer about a particular shot of Jared Leto’s Joker in the film, he responded that the shot was from the Joker vs. Superman battle that was never actually part of the film.

Ayer didn’t just stop there. When he found that fans didn’t get his joke, he went on to troll them explaining what happened during the imaginary Joker vs. Superman battle.

“Superman got his butt kicked, straight boxing match,” Ayer’s tweet read.

When another fan asked how many Joker scenes were cut from the film, he said around 12 hours of Joker scenes, which fans believe exists, were not included in the final cut which also includes a Joker Ragnarok battle sequence. He joked that the Joker Ragnarok battle sequence is currently under lock and key with the rest of the deleted material.

The 12 hours of cut Joker scenes including the Joker Ragnarok battle are under control of the 82nd Airborne Division,” the Suicide Squad director tweeted.

Released in 2016, Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited for a dangerous black ops mission by the government in exchange for reduced sentences. While the film did well at the box office, it received mixed reviews from critics and general audiences.  This led many fans to believe that Warner Bros. interfered with director Ayer’s vision and excluded a major portion of already shot Joker scenes from the final cut.

Despite Ayer denying that a lot of his scenes were cut from Suicide Squad, fans continue to demand the studio to release the Joker cut just like the Justice League Snyder cut.
