The reviews for Justice League are finally starting to hit the web, and they seem to be generally middling, which is actually an upward trend for a DCEU movie not called Wonder Woman. But for fans who, much to the chagrin of alleged sexual harasser Brett Ratner, rely on the Rotten Tomatoes score of a movie to determine whether or not to see it, they’re going to have to wait until Thursday at 12:01 a.m. to see the score, as Rotten Tomatoes (a company partially owned by Warner Bros.) has decided to delay the release of the score until then.
Or, at least, that was going to be the case. However, according to an article by Fast Company, though the score is hidden on the Rotten Tomatoes website, it must be available through the site’s APIs, because movie app Flixster was displaying (it’s been taken down since) the Rotten Tomatoes score, and… well, it could be worse, but it’s not great.
For most movies, a 48% rotten score would be a real bummer, but compared to the respective 26% and 27% of Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman, it’s actually a big step up. Of course, looking at the broader picture, it’s lower than Man of Steel, which has a 55% rotten score, which is not a good sign.
Compared to the near universally loved Wonder Woman, which currently holds a 92% fresh rating, that’s a huge drop. Then again, it shouldn’t be too surprising, considering the comparison between the Amazon costumes in Wonder Woman vs. Justice League, or the fact that world-renowned feminist Joss Whedon shockingly managed to let “a disconcerting number of Wonder Woman upskirt shots for the disrespectful horndogs in the audience” slip through to the finished product, according to one review.
