At the recent premiere of his newest action-packed antihero flick, Ayer got a little too fired up when introducing Suicide Squad. After someone in the audience yelled “f*** Marvel,” Ayer repeated the sentiment.
Take a look at the video:
Ayer must have had an uh-oh moment when he realized he may be working with some of the folks from Marvel crews in the future because he quickly issued an apology. In fact, his tweet about the event is the first notice people had that anything had even happened at the screening.
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.

Though the apology may be the best thing for him in terms of maintaining relationships, there are some people who think he should have stuck to his guns with the insult. Others questioned his sincerity given that cast members of Suicide Squad have been heard sharing similar thoughts.
