The unprecedented triumph of the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement brought renewed hope to the entire DC Extended Universe fanbase and a lot of them were convinced that it's the beginning of something special for the future of DC films in general. Now, if you've been following the movement long enough, you're also aware that some DC fans launched a similar brigade for David Ayer's cut of Suicide Squad. Dubbed as the #ReleaseTheAyerCut movement, people have also been demanding Warner Bros. to release the extended version of the 2016 project. 

However, Warner Bros. has officially denied the release of the famed Ayer Cut of the divisive DCEU supervillain film. According to WarnerMedia executive Ann Sarnoff, they have no plans to work on Ayer's "true" version of the film even after the success of the Snyder Cut. In an interview with Variety, she simply said: "We won’t be developing David Ayer’s cut." 

Her statement, of course, caught the attention of Ayer who took to Twitter to air his sentiments regarding the matter. Retweeting Sarnoff's blunt declaration, David simply responded with a "Why?" and a pleading emoji, seemingly mocking the decision. Check it out here: 


Now, just because the Snyder Cut movement ultimately rose to the occasion, it doesn't exactly mean that the Ayer Cut will have the same fate. It's a shame because the director himself is pretty confident that his true version of Suicide Squad is night and day compared to the theatrical release but hey, if the project is not backed by the studio itself, don't get your hopes up that we'll end up seeing it.

Meanwhile, Zack Snyder's Justice League is now available for streaming on HBO Max.
