David Ayer has had a change of heart when it comes to Marvel movies these days.
The director infamously said "Fuck Marvel" at an official press conference for Suicide Squad back in 2016, and then immediately apologized for it. The whole thing blew up into a bit of a controversy until Marvel's CCO Joe Quesada defended Ayer on Twitter, but people got over it. Jump forward to 2018 and someone is still trying to start things with him.
Marvel is killing it. Proud of their success. Life is a river. Ro with it brother. Peace. https://t.co/IhGhrjUqDi— David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) April 26, 2018
Suicide Squad is now considered a critical and financial failure while Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is about to hit theaters. Someone tried to make a joke about it, but Ayer, though, is taking a very different approach in regards to the Marvel vs. DC debate by admitting that "Marvel is killing it." Given the company's success in recent years, the forthcoming blockbuster, and the plans that still have yet to be announced, Ayer is no dummy.
To his credit, Ayer has found success of his own after writing and directing the Netflix original film Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. He is also attached to the film's sequel and continues to be developing new films for the ever-nebulous DC Extended Universe.
