Soon after news erupted that there would be a Zack Snyder cut of 'Justice League' which the director confirmed will drop on HBOMax next year, the focus has moved now to David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad'. The 2016 film opened to mixed reviews from the audience and critics with an ensemble cast of anti-heroes/supervillains to take on life-endangering black ops missions in exchange for reduced sentences and doing their bit to save the world. 

With Comic-Con @Home and the DC FanDome event lined up in July and August respectively, almost every update related on these topics were dissected by fans. In a recent piece of news, Ayer, in his reply to one of the fans on Twitter hinted that Katana had a major role to play in his cut as opposed to the released version where's she's a supporting character. The fan tweet read: "The casting of Will Smith and Margot Robbie were easily the best parts of Suicide Squad. My biggest complaint about the movie, besides the usual, is that Katana was so underused."

Ayer replied: "She had a bigger role in my cut" and fans rolled in with a barrage of questions to the director hoping to squeeze an answer about the Ayer cut, while also praising the character. "Katana is a fan-favorite. We are really looking forward to seeing more Katana when your cut of 'Suicide Squad' gets released in the close future," a fan wrote. "Katana was my favorite character besides joker. The Character design is fantastic and her potential backstory makes her fascinating," seconded another. 

"Katana @KarenFukuhara is incredible. I love her in my comics, she’s in several (mainly my birds of prey) I was hoping badly she would be utilized because her story is dark, painful, and deep. Then BoP was rolling up on the scene and it would be dope af to have her in it. #RTAC" shared one of the fans.

"It looks like he’s saying 'in my cut'," a fan noted. "I really hope we get some good news about your cut in the Justice Con or the DC Fandome #[email protected] @ATT," wrote a fan. "Let’s ask the direct question @DavidAyerMovies will we be able to see your cut?" a fan tweeted. "I really hope you get a chance to show your version of the movie. I never watched the theatrical cut but I guess that's what makes me more interested to watch your version," remarked one of the fans.

"Now that's a mic-drop movement" a tweet read. Do you want to see the 'Ayer Cut'?
