Three years after “Suicide Squad” hit theaters and was trounced with bad reviews, its writer-director, David Ayer, once again has expressed his frustration with the final product, writing in an Instagram post Sunday how it drifted from its original intention of centering on Harley Quinn and Joker’s relationship.“Movies are fragile. They are like dreams, haunting moments that run from your vision. They have their own logic and truth,” Ayer wrote as caption to a previously unseen image of Jared Leto as Joker. ”If you change the destination after the trip is complete is it still the same journey? The spine of Suicide Squad was Harley’s journey. In many ways it was her movie, her escaping her relationship with Joker was the major emotional through line. A director holds an invisible compass in their hands. It guides every shot, every performance. That compass points to the destination.”He concluded: “If the desintation [sic] changes did the journey even happen?”Also Read: 'Suicide Squad': Here's What David Ayer Would Have Done DifferentlyView this post on Instagram Movies are fragile.

In response to a Twitter user who thanked writer-director for making 'Squad,' the filmmaker shared a paragraphs-long reply, in which he acknowledged some of the films flaws, while also discussing the positives that came along with it
David Ayer is back in the business of DC comics villains. The filmmaker, who directed Warner Bros.’ all-bad guy comic book movie Suicide Squad, is reuniting with that film’s star, Margot Robbie, for Gotham City Sirens, a feature project that will showcase the top female villains from the DC stable, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Ayer will direct and produce the project with Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn, the part-time girlfriend of the Joker who is currently DC’s most popular female character.
Following a week of blistering reviews, Suicide Squad has found itself the victim of a different variety of less-than-nice words. Die Antwoord’s Yolandi Visser went on an Instagram rant, accusing the film’s director, David Ayer, of ripping off the group’s style. She also posted a comparison video.
Of the many possible permutations of Suicide Squad, will we only get one? Empire has an illuminating feature with writer-director David Ayer, where among other things (such as the backstory of The Joker’s “Damaged” tattoo), he suggests that the cut of Suicide Squad currently playing in theaters is the only cut that will see the light of day. Sources previously told The Hollywood Reporter that the film’s challenging production and worries from studio Warner Bros. resulted in multiple, competing cuts of the film.
It’s been a rough week for director David Ayer and his movie, Suicide Squad.

It’s a compliment of the highest order!” Lee then linked to this video he made allllllll the way back in 2012.

Jared Leto has been playing it somewhat coy when it comes to his physical transformation into the iconic villain the Joker for the upcoming big-screen adaptation of DC Comics’s Suicide Squad. The new tweet was a follow-up to a photo Ayer tweeted on Wednesday of most of the movie’s cast including Will Smith, Viola Davis, and Margot Robbie. The pose is a clear nod to the graphic novel The Killing Joke, which tells an origin story of the Joker.
Jared Leto is ditching the Jesus look and embracing his inner Joker. Earlier today, director David Ayer tweeted two new photographs of Leto, who stars as Batman’s most iconic nemesis in the upcoming Suicide Squad. One photograph, below, shows a pair of open scissors being held up to Leto’s lush ponytail. This is a dramatic change fromthe hirsute look Leto sported at the Oscars just over a week ago, complete with full beard and ombre-tinted hair flowing halfway down his chest.
