Much like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before it, Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad may have proven to be a hit at the box office, but it divided audiences, and receiving a rather vicious mauling from the majority of critics.
Taking to Twitter, director David Ayer has shared some rather honest reflections on the film, discussing his reaction to the critical backlash, as well as revealing what he would have done differently, given the benefit of hindsight.

David Ayer is set to get a second crack at the DC Extended Universe, reuniting with Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie for the Harley Quinn-led Gotham City Sirens. Let’s hope Warner Bros. gives him more than six weeks to put the script together this time…
What do you make of Ayer’s comments on Suicide Squad? Are you hopeful for Gotham City Sirens? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad sees David Ayer (Fury) directing a cast that includes Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flag, Viola Davis (The Help) as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns) as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Thor: The Dark World) as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez (Hostel) as El Diablo, Adam Beach (Flags of Our Fathers) as Slipknot, Jim Parrack (Fury) as Johnny Frost, Ben Affleck (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) as Batman, newcomer Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Common (Selma) as Monster T, Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project) as Captain Griggs and Scott Eastwood (The Longest Ride) as Lieutenant ‘GQ’ Edwards.
