Watch: "Will Batman v Superman Suck?" Screen Junkies Video Causes Controversy
The video was created on the date the trailer dropped, but interestingly enough, was posted following the recent controversial rumor that WB is worried about Batman Vs. Superman and Justice League.
The video itself is not without its own controversy as fans are now accusing Screen Junkies of being Marvel shills and intentionally trying to create negative feelings surrounding Batman Vs. Superman.
A petition has also been launched asking fans to unsubscribe from their channel.
Screen Junkies has also commented about the controvery surrounding their video:
All of you complaining about the title - Why not watch the fight first? :) Because guess what....No one says it'll suck! BUT to ignore the fact that DC has a tougher road to travel here is silly - many assume it will, and given the much more divisive feedback BvS has received over Civil War, the question is fair to ask. Oh and for the record: Batman and Superman are my favorite superheroes of all time :) so OF COURSE we will be doing a "Will Civil War Suck episode" when a final trailer drops. CW comes out in May guys, BvS comes out in March! But it doesn't matter what I say does it?? #HatersGonnaHate Oh but I do wanna thank the Schmoes! They made this an awesome fight !! Peace & Love @andysignore
Update: Following the uproard, Screen Junkies changed the name of their video to "Will Batman v Superman Be Great?"
We changed the title. It upset too many of you, and therefore wasn't worth the extra views it may have warranted, and so we apologize. It's never our goal to fan this unnecessary Marvel / DC flame war, and seeing the comments this title was too much. We're here to talk and speculate about movies we're ALL excited for. The truth is, we can't wait to see BOTH #BatmanVSuperman AND #CivilWar. What a time to live! We hope more than anything that BOTH movies are amazing! And the verdict is still out on both of them. The intent of our original title WAS click-bait... And that's because our "Will Blank Suck" fights are typically our highest viewed. Views are important for our channel. Given the heat on this film, we were merely attempting to copy the format & success of last year's Jurassic World battles. We did NOT do it for any "Secret DC Hatred"! Those of you that actually watched the episode (which was a really fun one! You should try it!) will see that all the panelists said it wouldn't suck. Also don't forget that we've tackled numerous positive BvS topics in previous MovieFights (Look up our "Best Moment in the BvS trailer" or "Who would win in a fight Batman v Supes v WW" etc etc). While we'll never be able to prove this to some of you, the truth is: We are NOT #DCHaters - We're all critics with our own opinions, that are sometimes different from others. Opinions, everybody's got 'em! That's the beauty of this show. Its a chance for all views to be shared, and you get to root for the fighter you agree with most - or decide your own answer! Whether you agree with the verdict or not - its always the discussion that matters most. And in this discussion below, too many of you didn't like the title and thought it was unfair. You were right, so we adjusted it. We listen to guys, and always want you involved in the discussion! So thanks for the feedback, and please keep it coming!! Peace & Love @andysignore
