Suicide Squad Director Apologizes for Saying What We All Think About Marvel

Even though, if we're being totally honest, he was right.

Suicide Squad director David Ayer apologized this morning for saying "Fuck Marvel" at the movie premiere last night. In a Tweet, Ayer said, "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." The tweet was reprinted in an article describing the comment as "anti-Marvel," as if that's somehow a bad thing.

In fact, Ayer's original sentiment is shared by many comic book readers, who have long been sick of Marvel's over-reliance on gimmicks and stunts over quality storytelling, as well as the condescending attitude of its executives and top talent toward fans on social media and comics press fluff interviews. Unfortunately, Ayer was forced to walk back his statement, even though Marvel employees like Dan Slott and Tom Brevoort are allowed to be abrasive towards fans and critics with impunity. But for people who don't receive paychecks from Marvel, even a mild insult like saying "Fuck Marvel" at a red carpet event is viewed as socially unacceptable, so Ayers had no choice but to apologize.

At press time, Dan Slott still had a twitter account.
