It was supposed to be a boom tube as she was under control of a motherbox. All the Apokalypse elements were stripped out late in the game. The machine concept was an attempt to create a ticking clock and world threat. https://t.co/NTDRrAv4rx

Ayer continued: "All the Apokalypse elements were stripped out late in the game. The machine concept was an attempt to create a ticking clock and world threat."Last year, Ayer revealed that his Suicide Squad was originally supposed to include DC villain Steppenwolf. Here's Ayer's tweet from 2018…
