It's been quite a while since Suicide Squad released in 2016, and now that DC is set out to make The Suicide Squad with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, fans are wondering whether the original film's director David Ayer would ever apologize for cursing at Marvel.

Before Suicide Squad's premiere, Ayer shouted: "Fuck Marvel" after a fan shouted it during a panel for his upcoming DC Extended Universe movie. Fans have been reminded the director of this little incident after Ayer took to Twitter to share Gunn's thoughts about the rivalry between Marvel and DC, and the director immediately decided to apologize again for his little bout against Marvel.

"Yes and I immediately regretted it. I apologized and had a nice exchange with Stan Lee. What else can I do? All sins are forgivable, right?" Ayer wrote in a tweet.

Of course, this isn't the first time that the filmmaker has apologized for his lapse in judgment. Back in 2016, the director also took to social media for his little jab against Marvel, telling his followers "Sorry about getting caught up in the moment and saying f*ck Marvel. Someone said it. I echoed. Not cool. Respect for my brother filmmakers."

We're glad to see Ayer taking responsibility for his unbecoming little display back in 2016. Despite the supposed rivalry between the Marvel and DC fanbase, Marvel Studios and DC Films have been nothing but supportive of one another. If one comic book film succeeds, then so do the others.

It's definitely going to be interesting to see how The Suicide Squad is going to uplift the comic book movie genre.

The Suicide Squad is set for release on August 6, 2021.
