David Ayer’s Suicide Squad originally had connections to Zack Snyder’s Justice League, according to the filmmaker himself. Ayer admitted on Twitter that one of the problems with the script was the removal of Steppenwolf and the Parademons before production. The original script had Enchantress under the control of a Mother Box and opening a portal to Apokolips, which was also cut before production. The inclusion of these elements would have made the story of Suicide Squad, and perhaps Justice League, very different. But Ayer called the removal of the major DC characters and elements a “hard loss.” Justice League opened a year after Suicide Squad to lackluster reviews, and both films have gone through significant changes since their releases. While James Gunn remade Suicide Squad, Zack Snyder was able to release his original vision of Justice League. However, recently, DC Comics chief creative officer Kim Lee said that Justice League would be probably the director’s last work in the franchise. Nevertheless, Snyder has hinted at new content with a “coming full circle” Darkseid announcement. The newly christened DCU, led by James Gunn and Peter Safran, seems to be leaving almost everything behind, but the DC universe is still evolving.
