DC Fans Accuse Avengers: Endgame Of Copying A Scene From Suicide Squad

Avengers: Endgame

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad has suddenly found itself back in the headlines again, and it surely can’t be a coincidence that the filmmaker has started talking about his original vision for the movie on an increasingly regular basis ever since the Snyder Cut of Justice League was finally confirmed to be happening.

The grubby fingerprints of studio interference were all over the theatrical release, and we don’t need the End of Watch director telling us on social media that he had much different plans for the movie, because it’s obvious just from watching Suicide Squad that it was clearly the result of a heavily-compromised production.

It seems increasingly likely that the Ayer Cut may eventually follow Justice League in becoming reassembled and presented to audiences as a completely different movie, but today, DCEU fans are calling out Avengers: Endgame thanks to a scene in Suicide Squad that didn’t get left on the cutting room floor, as you can see below.

The brief scene of Katana dishing out some good old-fashioned vigilante justice with her weaponized namesake recently caught the eye of some fans who thought that it seemed more than a little similar to Hawkeye’s reintroduction as Ronin in Avengers: Endgame, right down to similarities in both the visuals and the dialogue.

However, calling the Russo brothers out for plagiarism seems a bit far-fetched even though there are some superficial comparisons to be made. Still, comic book fans aren’t exactly known for taking things lightly when it comes to making their opinions known on Twitter. If you wanted to list every movie that featured a neon-lit brawl set in the backstreets of Japan that involved someone using a samurai sword to exact revenge though then you’d be here all week, and it extends a whole lot further than ensemble superhero blockbusters.
