Responding to a Twitter user who thanked David Ayer for making "Suicide Squad," the director published a lengthy response in which he showed regret for some of the film's "flaws."

What would he do differently? He'd make the Joker, portrayed by Jared Leto, the main villain of the movie instead of The Enchantress, played by Cara Delevingne.

"Wish I had a time machine. I'd make the Joker the main villain and engineer a more grounded story," Ayer admitted. "I have to take the good and bad and learn from it. I love making movies and I love DC. I'm a high school dropout and used to paint houses for a living. I'm lucky to have the job I have. I have to give the characters the stories and plots they deserve next time. Real talk. (And no, there isn't a secret edit of the film with a bunch of Joker scenes hidden in a salt mine somewhere)."

Lucky for Ayer, he'll get another stab at the DC cinematic universe with an all-girl supervillian movie featuring "Suicide Squad's" Margot Robbie's character Harley Quinn titled "Gotham City Sirens."
