DC Comics Fans Are Petitioning To Have Rotten Tomatoes Shut Down
However, after Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice tanked earlier this year, and early reviews of the film that was supposed to redeem this early failure Suicide Squad have been mixed at best – it’s looking like the DCEU will be relegated to the role of Marvel’s less successful cousin.
DC fans aren’t having a bar of it, and are taking up the fight to reputable movie critic site Rotten Tomatoes; making it abundantly clear that they don’t agree with its critic-driven rating of 27% for Batman V Superman and 38% for Suicide Squad.
A group of fans has created a change.org petition to get rid of Rotten Tomatoes once and for all. “We need this site to be shut down because It’s [sic] Critics always give The DC Extended Universe movies unjust Bad Reviews,” reads the petition. “Like 1- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016 [,] 2- Suicide Squad 2016 and that Affects people’s opinion even if it’s a really great movies.”
Those who started the petition don’t quite seem to understand how Rotten Tomatoes reviewing system works basically by just summing up the total of outsourced critic reviews – and that it’s not the site itself that decides a rating. Regardless, the petition has already picked up 2389 signatures at the time of writing this article – just 111 shy of its goal of 2500.
