David Ayer, the director of the last year’s Suicide Squad, has previously stated that he is proud of the film, despite the critics. But now Ayer has come out and said that there are changes he would make to the movie.
A DC fan recently approached Ayer on Twitter reassuring him that the film was a masterpiece the way it was. Ayer responded to the fan thanking him, and saying that there are some changes he would make to it, if he could.
Ayer said “Wish I had a time machine. I’d make the Joker the main villain and engineer a more grounded story.” This would fix the problems many critics had with the movie, critics think that Enchantress was poorly executed and didn’t fit into the plot of the movie. Character is said to be poorly explained and her motivation being unclear for the majority of the film.
If Joker was the main villain he would have received a proper amount of screen time, and her relationship with Harley would be more powerful, with Harley being tasked to take down the man he loves. The two would have to find a way where Harley doesn’t have to kill him, but Harley wouldn’t end up dead either.
Other Squad members, such as Deadshot and Killer Croc, would also have some kind of a relationship with the Joker, and it could make it harded for them too to go after the Joker.
I have to say that in my opinion the movie is almost perfect the way it is, it is the second best movie of the decade, after The Force Awakens. So I wouldn’t change anything in it (except I would kill Waller in the end, but I just hate the character). But it is interesting to see Ayer’s thoughts after some time has passed and the fans and critics have had a chance to say their opinions.
