Scornful DC fans plan to sabotage Black Panther audience score

And here we ... go!

On February 15th, a select group of DCEU fans plan to mount an attack on Marvel's BLACK PANTHER, by posting in-depth spoilers in addition to damaging the film's overall audience score with a flood of negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.

This whole embarrassing mess started when it was announced that BLACK PANTHER had driven Fandango pre-sale ticket orders higher than any other superhero film in history. In the past, DC fans have created multiple petitions related to the DC filmverse, often citing that there's a bias in favor of Marvel movies - seeing as Warner Bros. owns a slice of the Rotten Tomatoes site itself. With all of this in mind, the vengeful group have created a Facebook event entitled “Give Black Panther a Rotten Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes.” I can think of a few other names to call this "event," but that won't stop it from taking place on February 15th through the 24th.

Over the past few weeks, this gathering of scornful individuals has seemingly claimed responsibility for the ocean of negative reviews posted for Rian Johnson's STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI on Rotten Tomatoes. Additionally, the group has also issued a warning that they'll be setting up an event similar to the BLACK PANTHER one, when AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR makes its May 4th debut.

See ... this is why we can't have nice things.

Thankfully, I'm confident that BLACK PANTHER will do just fine, negative reviews or no. That movie looks like it will be over-the-top fun, and if early word of mouth has anything to say for itself, BLACK PANTHER will give black superheroes a chance to shine unlike the world has ever seen before. I say bring it on, Marvel! Make your money, Ryan Coogler! Change the game!
