Following disappointing results and reactions to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC has got everything riding on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, the other film from the studio set to hit theatres this year, that’s the only chance left in 2016 to give a majority of its fans hope in the rest of the DC Cinematic Universe.
So far, buzz around the project seems to be good, despite the numerous reshoot reports that seem to be hitting the web on a constant basis as of late.
Now, the very first test screening reactions to the film, that was apparently held in Los Angeles last night, have hit the web, and predictably, the reactions seem to be fairly positive:
got to watch an early screening of suicide squad and it was actually pretty great!

Now, all of these reactions should be taken with a grain of salt, since the initial fan reactions (which are what these are for the most part) to both Fantastic Four and Batman v Superman were overwhelmingly positive. With that being said, it’s nice to know that the first reactions to the film are still positive anyways, especially considering how Batman v Superman could have negatively impacted anyone‘s perception of the film.
It looks like a ballsy and weird comic book movie adaptation, in a much better way than Batman v Superman did though, which is about all I’m asking for at this point.
Suicide Squad is set to hit theatres on August 5th.
