David Ayer on sexualising Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad& 

It’s been nearly 4 years however Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad proceed to make headlines. The two films made cash on the field workplace however have been panned critically. Over the years, filmmaker David Ayer, who directed the Will Smith, Margot Robbie starrer superhero team-up film had talked loads about it. Earlier this yr, a troll requested him to apologise for making the movie however the filmmaker refused and rightly said, “Never ever ever my dude. I’m proud of it for all it’s flaws. Aaaaaaand it’s still living rent free in your head. “

However, he did really feel he might’ve completed higher with the way in which Margot Robbie’s character Harley Quinn was portrayed within the movie. When a fan wrote, “Harley was sexualized in the entire Suicide Squad movie and in Birds Of Prey she was a real character, not a eyecandy”, David surprisingly replied, “Sadly her story arc was eviscerated. It was her movie in so many ways. Look I tried. I rendered Harley comic book accurate. Everything is political now. Everything. I just want to entertain. I will do better.”

To which one other fan replied, “A female character in an abusive relationship is already political, my dude. The way your camera looked at her was political. The way you used her was political. You treated her as an object and she still rose above it. That was political too.”

To which Ayer not solely agreed but in addition replied, “Retweeting because this is very thoughtfully written. Thank you for this. I am growing and learning in a changing world.”
