Tonight was the world premiere of Suicide Squad in New York City and it was quite the spectacle. The cast and crew walked the red carpet, met a lot of news reporters and acquaintances, lots of interviews were had. It wasn’t until everyone was seated in the theater and the film’s director David Ayer took the stage that the big news to sweep the web was to occur.
David Ayer shouted out the words “F— Marvel” on stage after hearing what was probably a crazed DC fan in the audience say it first. Needless to say the Internet exploded with their opinion on the matter. Many people immediately went on the defense defending Marvel and were angry he said such a thing. Other people who agreed with him didn’t mind what he said, as unprofessional as it was. Soon after this controversy David Ayer took to twitter to amend this problem. He tweeted this:
Sorry about getting caught up in the moment and saying f*ck Marvel. Someone said it. I echoed. Not cool. Respect for my brother filmmakers.

You got to hand it to the guy for having the balls to swallow his pride and admit when he made a mistake. David Ayer quickly put out a fire that was spreading all over the net. Being put in his shoes you can’t exactly blame him, being in the heat of the moment, being on stage premiering the biggest movie of your career so far, it would be difficult not to be caught up in the moment. In the end, he obviously didn’t mean what he said and it was pretty cool of him to acknowledge all the directors of Marvel movies to be “brother filmmakers.”
