The upcoming, Birds of Prey Movie, might help David Ayer cope with his nightmares. The director wasn’t really happy with how the Suicide Squad came out-to-be and has been quite expressive about it. In Ayer’s eyes, the soul of the story was supposed to be Jared Leto’s Joker and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. The Cathy Yan directed flick might have everything David ever wanted to see under his watch. It’s all about Quinn this time. The release date is 7th February 2020.

Suicide Squad was Supposed to be a Harley Quinn story, says David Ayer.

The next in line for DC, Birds of Prey movie is due to release next year and it’s all about Harley Quinn this time. Which reminds me of David Ayer. According to him, Suicide Squad should have revolved around Harley.

In an Instagram post, the director shared his feelings. He thinks the final product deviated from the original story. David Ayer captions an unseen image of Jared Leto as Joker:

Movies are fragile. They are like dreams, haunting moments that run from your vision. They have their own logic and truth. 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.

Although David Ayer is not part of Birds of Prey the mere fact that DC is giving Harley Quinn her own story might put a smile on Suicide Squad’s director’s face. Well…I hope it does…

Birds of Prey | The Plot

Here’s what we know about the story at the moment. Birds of Prey sees Harley Quinn bring the odd foursome together. Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Black Canary, and Rosie Perez’s Detective Renee Montoya team up with Joker’s love interest to protect Ella Jay Basco’s Cassandra Cain after she comes across a diamond belonging to Roman Sionis (Black Mask) played by Ewan McGregor.

Many criticized Ayer and his movie. Even though Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto’s performances met with praise. David Ayer directed Suicide Squad was able to bank-in a whopping $746 million at the box-office.

Like most fans, I am particularly interested in knowing what David has to say about the Birds of Prey. We’ll have to wait on that one. Dankanator will update you as more information starts rolling in.

    He’s talking out his ass because he want justification after Suicide Squads fail. Suicide Squad was not meant to be about Harley Quinn at all. It was about the SQUAD. He’s just saying this now to A, boost Margot’s ego even more and B, to make himself feel better that his movie was a flop with actual fans. Him and Margot need to stay away from comic characters because they turn them into a bad joke with dumb, quirky, unrecognizable characters.
