Although the upcoming Suicide Squad spinoff Birds Of Prey isn’t slated to hit theaters until early next year, it looks like the film may have already hit a bit of a snag. Test Screenings of the movie have left split reactions between audiences and Warner Bros. executives.

So what could this mean for the forthcoming film?

Screen Rant’s Stephen M. Colbert took to Twitter to state that audiences were “raving” about Birds Of Prey. He went on to reveal that the internal WB screening had the “opposite effect.”

“So the audience test screening for Birds of Prey had people raving about it and the internal WB test screening seemingly had the opposite effect. So basically all I needed to be reassured. Hopefully Robbie can keep their hands off of it.”


Fans were concerned over the split reaction, afraid that if Warner Bros. got too involved we’d have another Justice League incident on our hands.

The synopsis for the Suicide Squad spinoff reads, “After splitting up with The Joker, Harley Quinn and three other female superheroes—Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya—come together to save the life of a little girl (Cassandra Cain) from an evil crime lord.”

Aside from Robbie and Basco, the cast includes Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Black Mask (Ewan McGregor), Victor Zsasz (Chris Messina) and Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez).
