During an interview with John Doe Movie Reviews carried out in December, Zack Snyder said he hadn’t spoken to yet David Yesterday about his court of Suicide Squad, but that he was willing to help him (have they already spoken by now?), these were his words:
I haven’t talked to David about it, but I’m sure I will. I know him quite well. I just went down, you know, because of Covid, but it’s on my list of things to talk to him about. I support any filmmaker who needs to see their version of their movie or their vision, because I’ve had, you know, such generous support. So, I really hope other people get the same.

The only official statement from Warner Bros. regarding the cut of David Yesterday was made by the CEO of Warner Media, Ann Sarnoff, shortly after it was published on HBO Max Zack Snyder’s Justice League – 82%. His words were not encouraging, as he denied that one day the Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad. Fans, on the other hand, won’t give up so easily, and just as they were able to insist on the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut hashtag for over two years, they will likely insist a long time to see the original version of Suicide Squad.
