Rotten Tomatoes Delays Justice League Score Release

The release of the Justice League Rotten Tomatoes score is being delayed a day, which per the norm is causing online controversy.

WB lifts the embargo on the Justice League reviews tomorrow at 2:50 am Eastern, but Rotten Tomatoes is withholding their rating until Thursday.

WB actually in part owns Rotten Tomatoes, which is only adding fuel to the fire, but Rotten Tomatoes is releasing the Justice League Rotten Tomatoes score as part of their new Live Facebook show Rotten Tomatoes See It / Skip It on Thursday at 12:01 am.

Some fans think its a conspiracy as it means the Rotten Tomatoes score for Justice League is low, but I'm guessing Rotten Tomatoes knows how controversial the DCEU scores are and wants to get as much attention for their new show as possible.

If I had to guess, I'm guessing the Justice League Rotten Tomatoes score comes in around 82%, which is similar to Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Wonder Woman came in at 92%; Batman vs Superman at 27%; Suicide Squad at 26%; Man of Steel at 55%.

Justice League has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder, with the story by Chris Terrio and Zack Snyder, the screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
