Just as fans clamored for the Justice League Snyer Cut, there are those who are asking the same for David Ayer's Suicide Squad
The Suicide Squad debuts in some ideas and we can see James Gunn's plans to reshape the way fans saw some DC Comics villains introduced into the film of the Task Force X directed by David Ayer.
The 2016 movie may be a passing issue now, but its reception and division of opinion sparked serious debate years ago. Today, the movie is gearing up to turn heads amid its successor's debut, and star Margot Robbie recently spoke with Variety about her thoughts on the move to pull off the Suicide Squad Yesterday Cut.
For those who are not familiar with the situation, Ayer made public his dissatisfaction with the version that was released in theaters and as the negative reviews arrived, the director explained that his version of the film is not the one that the fans saw in the cinemas. This speech has continued to this day, and Margot Robbie is not averse to seeing the cut. In fact, the Harley Quinn star would love to see the director's cut, but admits that the whole situation is complicated.
"I think it's a very tough situation," Robbie said when asked about the Yesterday Cut at the premiere of The Suicide Squad. He went on to tell Variety that he loves to see different cuts from a movie, but for this movie, he didn't see any footage until the movie was released.
“I would like to see the montage of all the films that I have been part of and that I have never seen. You know, the funny thing is… as an actor, I haven't seen it, even half the country has seen it. Sometimes I see it after millions of people have seen it. You can't see the different iterations along the way unless you are a producer. So yeah, I didn't get to see (Suicide Squad) until it was in theaters. "

About The Suicide Squad
Welcome to Hell, also known as Belle Reve, is the prison with the highest death rate in the US of A. There are the worst Super Villains who will do anything to escape, including joining the super-secret and murky TaskForce X. Today's mission: act or die. And to achieve this you have to gather a group of supervillains including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone's favorite psychopath, Harley Quinn. Then you have to equip them with all possible weapons and drop them (literally) on the remote island of Corto Maltés, infested with enemies. There, the Squad makes its way through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces. On their search and destroy mission, the only sensible person is Colonel Rick Flag but they have Amanda Waller's government technologists tracking their every move. And as always, one wrong move and they're dead (whether at the hands of their enemies, a teammate, or Waller herself). If someone wants to get rich, they must bet against them: against all of them.
The film stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Michael Rooker, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Joaquín Cosio, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, NathanFillion, Steve Agee, Sean Gunn, MaylingNg, FlulaBorg, Jennifer Holland and TinasheKajese, with SylvesterStallone, and Viola Davis.
