DC Studios officially launched on November 1, when Gunn and his co-CEO Peter Safran, who will oversee the business aspect of the division, had been in their roles for barely a month. Gunn and Safran are still settling into DC Studios and are beginning to outline their big 10-year plan for the DCU as they are now responsible for television, films and animation for Warner Bros. Discovery’s DC brand . But only because of Ayer suicide squad Currently not part of these plans does not mean that this will not change in the future.

Despite Gunn being one of the co-heads of DC Studios, nothing has been done The Suicide Squad, which he wrote and directed in 2021. If Gunn isn’t even focusing on the franchise he started working on when he got into the DCU, it’s perfectly understandable why the co-CEO wouldn’t focus on Ayer’s original cut. However, once they’ve planned their roadmap and gotten the full green light from Warner Bros. Discovery, it’s not impossible that Ayer is suicide squad cut will be distributed worldwide within the next 4-5 years if it makes sense within their plan. It could also be a matter of waiting to get it out once HBO Max and Discovery Plus have been fully combined, which happens in spring 2023.

Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Studios are focused on the future of the DCU, which means their top priority is finding ways to branch out from their interconnected franchise. When even Ayer insists he has no problem with his suicide squad cut won’t be released any time soon, hence his “It won’t be tomorrow” comment, then it’s worth considering. Hopefully if it can happen organically and Ayers suicide squad cut will finally be revealed to the world in the years to come as DC Studios continues to work on its future.
