David Ayer, the director of Suicide Squad, has revealed a climactic Joker scene that was cut from the film after being shot.
It is no secret that David Ayer isn’t happy with what Warner Bros. did to his Suicide Squad movie. Ever since Zack Snyder’s Justice League was announced, Ayer has been campaigning for his own film to receive similar treatment.
Whether we will ever actually see Ayer’s preferred cut of the movie is unknown but fans can now read a Joker scene that was cut from the film. Ayer posted a photo of the script to his social media.
The scene depicts the squad confronting Enchantress, only to bump into Joker who has the triggers for the explosives buried in their necks. A fan asked Ayer if she scene was actually shot and he replied: “Yes I did. Shot and edited. Of course you were not permitted to see it my friend.”

With James Gunn’s version of The Suicide Squad already in the works, it seems unlikely that WB would let Ayer release his own cut of the original movie. But if there is enough fan support, anything is possible.
Suicide Squad saw David Ayer (Fury) directing a cast that included 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.
