Warner Bros. has started test screening Suicide Squad for general audiences, and the reactions are in! Batman News has spoke to several people who were at the test screening, and has obtained a copy of the screening pass to confirm its validity. Here’s how it all went down!
Fans who were watching Captain America: Civil War on Tuesday received a flyer inviting them to see a “new action film” from a “major studio” on Thursday, May 19th at Century 25 Theater in Union City, California. When they arrived, they learned it was Suicide Squad! The reactions are in, and they’re overwhelmingly positive. Check them out below:

Reactions to these kind of screenings are almost always positive (even last year’s Fantastic Four got positive reviews from early screenings), so the interesting news here is that Warner Bros. is starting to show the movie to general audiences, especially ones who were at a Marvel movie. Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th, so there’s time to make some tweaks based on the feedback Warner Bros. gets from these test screenings.
