David Ayer offered a new look at his Suicide Squad cut ending which features the survival of El Diablo.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League has come and gone and some DC fans are hoping David Ayer gets to release his cut of Suicide Squad next. However, WarnerMedia head Ann Sarnoff came out the day after the Snyder Cut release and confirmed they are not working on a cut of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

Over the years, David Ayer has talked about many elements in the theatrical that changed over reshoots and one of them was El Diablo’s death. On a recent Instagram Story, Ayer shared a new look at his Suicide Squad cut which sees El Diablo with the rest of the team at the end of the movie after the final battle with Enchantress. You can take a look at a screenshot of the image below!

You can check out the synopsis for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad below:

Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, and Michael Rooker.

The Suicide Squad is currently scheduled to hit theaters and HBO Max on August 6, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the DC Extended Universe, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
