Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last few days, you know that the persistence of the fans of the DC Universe paid off: the so-called Snyder Cut will HBOMAX the next year. It is a triumph curious for the base fandom of the movie Universe expanded from the publisher, but also a door open to the possibility that something similar happens. And apparently, we won’t have to wait too long: David Ayer, director of the failed Suicide Squadconfirmed via Twitter that the edition that you made your film exists, and that it “is almost complete”, but added that still had to add the visual effects needed to be considered a product film quality.
This is another endless debate, which started once Yesterday confirmed that the version that came to the big screen Suicide Squad was materially modified, after successive reshoots and cuts-only editing.
The first statements by the director about it emerged in the wake of reports of specialized media which indicated that the study is pressured to create an issue that derailed the end result of the film, something the director concluded by confirming. In the midst of a storm of criticism by the argument, nonsensical and disorder plot of the film, a good portion of the fans began to demand that the version, as the director had imagined it to be included at least in the format Blu Ray no response from the producer of the film.
In the same way that The Justice League, Suicide Squad was an uncomfortable test on manipulation and pressure to which are often subjected the directors of the great franchises of the world of entertainment. With Yesterday, the situation turned into a debate was very public about the need for DC to make a lesser film in a very successful summer, which was an extra weight on a script intended to be an experiment of argument without too much significance.
In spite of everything, the movie became a box-office success, but even so I continue to face the inevitable consequences of its failure critical. The inflated cost of the day, as well as the elaborate advertising campaign that attempted to trace the first rumors about confusion and tension on the set. In addition to the discontent of Yesterday ended up to convert the gain in gross in another point of debate in the studythat in the end , decided to give a second chance to the movie while ignoring the majority of the cast and keeping the film by James Gunn, who had just been fired from Marvel.
#ReleaseTheAyerCut and other oddities
This Monday, the social networks were filled with petitions to the channel by subscription online HBOMAX to also allow the release of the version of Yesterday of the film. Something that certainly would not be at all far-fetched after the platform announced the premiere of the expected Snyder Cut for the year 2021. Nevertheless, and in spite of the enthusiasm that seems to cause the idea, the same, Yesterday he had denied the possibility a few weeks ago, when he tweeted “My court Suicide Squad you can always be just a rumor. And that’s good.”
However, for the time of the declaration, the chances that Snyder Cut were to be released were once remote, but now, the condition of rupture of what seems to be a bold experiment of HBOMAX puts things in perspective. If the film Snyder achieved a considerable audience success—and everything seems to indicate that it will be— it is likely that yesterday also able to show the Suicide Squad that imagined. And which in its time was considered very dark, twisted and mocking to the general public.
Of course, that was before the success of The Joker and also the fact that DC will take the decision to experiment with all kinds of records, in what seems like a step in the all-or-nothing that has given good results.
If the movie Zack Snyder manages to evade the perception about its quality as a product tertiary and maneuver advertising and turns out to be something more than a marketing gambitthen it’s more likely that HBOMAX has an interest in repeat the move, this time with Yesterday to the head.
A clown, a mystery, a rumor
Yesterday has said on more than one occasion that his original idea for Suicide Squad included a look more dark, deep and detailed about the Joker from Jared Leto. In addition to a more central place for the Harley Quinn than Margot Robbie. He added that the movie had a nexus obvious and very intriguing with Justice leaguethis could add interest to a possible premiere if the Snyder Cut becomes a ratings success.
Meanwhile, HBO Max and Snyder are preparing to begin what has been called production The Justice Leagueaccording to Zack Snyder.
According to reports from the specialized media, the film will cost between 20 and 30 million dollars and will also include new —and we hope that most decent— visual effects. Some new characters and the possibility that members of the original cast to have more —and better— dialogues.
However, the limited of the sum suggests that with all certainty, the new ones added to the version released in the cinema, will include the greater part of the material discarded in the editing room and a few scenes especially recorded for the release of HBOMAX, which could include, in addition to a redesign of the villain Steppenwolf, one of the low points of the film.
What could happen with Suicide Squad? A critical and public success may drive HBOMAX to provide the opportunity —and the budget— to David Yesterday to carry out his idea. For now, just guesses optimistic. But, after all, less than four weeks no one believed possible that the Snyder Cut were to appear any time.
Written and directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad it is starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Scott Eastwood, Karen Fukuhara, Ike Barinholtz and Cara Delevingne. For now it is available on digital HD, Blu-ray, 4K Ultra-HD Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D and DVD.
