HBO Max Will Keep Its DC Comics Movies Available After All

DC fans were understandably a little upset when they learned that just weeks into HBO Max’s existence, the new streaming service was already removing a bunch of its superhero titles. That was despite the fact that a whole subsection of the HBO Max, including a prominent tab on the home page, was supposed to be devoted to DC Comics and its stable of characters. After subscribers raised a stink, HBO decided to reverse course. Via press release, they’ve announced that “by popular demand” the DC Comics movies will be sticking around “through December 2020.”

The full list of Warner Bros. DC movies that will be available through the rest of the year on HBO Max is:

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
  • Justice League
  • Suicide Squad
  • Superman: The Movie
  • Superman II
  • Superman III
  • Superman IV: The Quest For Peace
  • Superman: Unbound
  • Watchmen (movie)
  • Wonder Woman

WarnerMedia, which owns HBO Max and DC Comics is the awkward position of having two different streaming services with slightly overlapping content — because they also have a DC Universe streaming service that offers many of these same films, plus other TV series inspired by DC superheroes along with a selection of comic books. Limiting some superhero stuff to DC Universe might get a few people to subscribe to both services … but when you’ve already got people paying a hefty $15 a month for HBO Max, it’s tough to tell them they need to pay more if they want to watch Suicide Squad.

David Ayer Says ‘Suicide Squad’ Was Originally a ‘Soulful Drama’

You can’t begrudge a guy for trying — especially when he’s watched others get exactly what he want doing exactly the same thing. Fans, spurred on by director Zack Snyder, hounded Warner Bros. until they agreed to fund a director’s cut of Justice League, and now Suicide Squad director David Ayer wants exactly the same thing. Since the announcement of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which is supposedly coming to HBO Max next year, Ayer has repeatedly talked up the possibility of doing something similar for Suicide Squad, which was a much bigger hit than Justice League, despite its compromised version of Ayer’s original vision.

After initially revealing that his director’s cut of the movie has “never been seen,” Ayer has now described how far the released film strayed from his initial intentions. Ayer tweeted that his version of Suicide Squad was a “soulful drama” until it was “beaten into a ‘comedy’” by Warner Bros. as a result of two market forces: The overwhelming success of the first Deadpool movie and the relative flop of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, also by Zack Snyder:

The released cut of Suicide Squad didn’t have a lot of soul — but hey, that’s exactly what Ayer’s saying executives took out.

Still, the same issue for any sort of #ReleaseTheAyerCut movement remains: Suicide Squad is already getting a sequel, The Suicide Squad, which is due in theaters next summer from a whole new creative team, including Guardians of the Galaxy architect James Gunn. Warner Bros. almost certainly wants to focus attention on the new movie, with its own approach and cast, rather than remind people of the film that most people didn’t like. With Justice League, they have nothing to lose. With Suicide Squad, they do.

Rick Ross – Purple Lamborghini (Black Jack Album)

Biggest boss and I been the trillest
I’m a bigger problem when I click with Skrillex
Murder on my mind, it’s time to pray to God
My revolver is not religious, the revolution’s born
You wanna know my name then go and tell the Sarg
You wanna know my gang: Suicide Squad
Pistol on my waist, I might make a mistake
Dead shot, head shot, oh my god, am I crazy?
Drugs every corner, this is Gotham City
Killer Croc came to kidnap you, to cut out your kidney
Ain’t no mercy, got that purple Lamborghini lurkin’
Rozay, don’t you know that pussy worth it
Flooded Rolex at the Grammy awards
They still sellin’ dope, that’s those Miami boys
Killers everywhere, it ain’t no place to run
Forgive me for my wrongs, I have just begun

Ain’t no mercy, a-ain’t no mercy
Got that purple Lamborghini lurkin’
Ain’t no mercy, a-ain’t no mercy
Got that purple Lamborghini lurkin (Rozay!)

Don’t be beggin’ for your life cause that’s a lost cause
High stakes, body armor, suicide boy
There’s a time for games and there’s a time to kill
Make up your mind baby cause the time is here
Capital murder, capital lettuce
Yeah she catchin’ my vibe but can’t fathom my cheddar
Need a couple gang members for these new endeavors
From this point on anything we do, we do together
Body on the corner, million in the trunk
Seven figures, I will spend that every other month
Killers on the corner, talons in the clip
Build a palace out in Paris just to fill with bitches
Say my name and I’m coming with the gun squad
Everybody runnin’, homie, there’s only one God
Cocaine, white Ferrari, I’m in the fast lane
Every day was life and death, that’s when the cash came
Count money, drug residue even blood on it
He had a trap ’til I put my cuz on it
Kickin’ in the dope boy, Suicide Squad
Needle in my arm so I’m do or die for it

Ain’t no mercy, a-ain’t no mercy
Got that purple Lamborghini lurkin’
Ain’t no mercy, a-ain’t no mercy
Got that purple Lamborghini lurkin’, Rozay

Skrillex & Rick Ross – Purple Lamborghini lyrics

[Verse 1]
Biggest boss and I been the trillest
I’m a bigger problem when I click with Skrillex
Murder on my mind, it’s time to pray to God
My revolver is not religious, the revolution’s born
You wanna know my name then go and tell the Sarg
You wanna know my gang: Suicide Squad
Pistol on my waist, I might make a mistake
Dead shot, head shot, oh my god, am I crazy?
Drugs every corner, this is Gotham City
Killer Croc came to kidnap you, to cut out your kidney
Ain’t no mercy, got that purple Lamborghini lurkin’
Rozay, don’t you know that pussy worth it
Flooded Rolex at the Grammy awards
They still sellin’ dope, that’s those Miami boys
Killers everywhere, it ain’t no place to run
Forgive me for my wrongs, I have just begun

[Hook: Instrumental]
Ain’t no mercy, a-ain’t no mercy
Got that purple Lamborghini, purple Lamborghini lurkin’
Ain’t no mercy, a-ain’t no mercy
Got that purple Lamborghini lurkin (Rozay!)
[Verse 2]
Don’t be beggin’ for your life ’cause that’s a lost cause
High stakes, body armor, suicide boy
It’s a time for games and it’s a time to kill
Make up your mind baby ’cause the time is here
Capital murder, capital letters
Yeah she catchin’ my vibe but she can’t fathom my cheddar
Need a couple gang members for these new endeavors
From this point on anything we do, we do together
Body on the corner, million in the trunk
Seven figures, I will spend that every other month

Everybody runnin’, homie, there’s only one God

Every day was life and death, that’s when the cash came
Count money, drug residue even blood on ‘em
He had a driver ’til I put my cuz on it
Kickin’ in the door boy, Suicide Squad
Needle in my arm so I’m do or die for it

[Hook: Instrumental]
Ain’t no mercy, a-ain’t no mercy
Got that purple Lamborghini, purple Lamborghini lurkin’
Ain’t no mercy, a-ain’t no mercy
Got that purple Lamborghini lurkin’, (Rozay!)
