Marvel CCO Joe Quesada Defends David Ayer in Wake of “F— Marvel” Comment

At the red carpet premiere of “Suicide Squad,” director David Ayer echoed a fan’s chant of “fuck Marvel” during his introductory speech, a comment he apologized for just a few hours later. Now, an unlikely person has come to his defense: Marvel Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada.

On Twitter, Quesada wrote,

Ayer’s comment isn’t the first time that the director of a DC film has offered an opinion on Marvel. “Batman v Superman” director Zack Snyder also stoked the rivalry back in late 2015 when he likened Marvel’s “Ant-Man” to the “flavor of the week.”

The next DC Cinematic Universe installment, “Suicide Squad,” stars Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo and Adam Beach as Slipknot and hits theaters on Aug. 5, 2016.
