Is Time Warner keeping rotten 'Justice League' reviews from fans?

Rotten Tomatoes will delay the release of its Justice League score, raising eyebrows

The positive certification has impacted several movies - including Wonder Woman.

This move is officially being made as promotion for Rotten Tomatoes' new See It/Skip It show on Facebook, in which RT will officially unveil the score for new releases. It fared better than the widely panned Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad but worse than Man of Steel and Wonder Woman.

The late review embargo lift doesn't bode well for Justice League, which has been mired in behind-the-scenes changes and overhauls after extensive reshoots overseen by Joss Whedon. Conversely, blockbusters with rock bottom scores such as Baywatch (19 percent) and Transformers: The Last Knight (15 percent) faltered domestically over the summer. Now, aficionados have something to compare the score with, with Rotten Tomatoes also announcing their own composite.

Not that any of it really matters anyway, as The Wrap are reporting that Justice League is on track to make up to $120 million in its opening weekend in the States alone.

If that is indeed the case, and Justice League performs poorly or even up to average, I would expect a complete overhaul for the DCEU, which may already actually be in the works. This score is the result of an aggregate of reviews.

Screen Rant: Justice League successfully ushers in a new era for DC Films and delivers lots of superhero fun - at the expense of a richer and more layered movie.

That is certainly a possibility (in the same way that the Loch Ness monster existing is a possibility), but in terms of a more likely explanation, is that DC fans don't want to be told that some of these movies are simply not very good, and that the majority of critics around the world all share that same opinion. With Warner Bros. parent company Time Warner owning a partial stake in the online review aggregation website, fans might find this kind of approach suspicious.

Of course, regardless of the score, there are plenty of fans who would be down to see the film, no matter what.

Polygon: There are good, cute and amusing moments that the editing team should be applauded for, but there aren't enough to distract from the lovely, chaotic mess that Justice League ends up being. In the bright side, it's higher than Batman v Superman's 27% score but that's like comparing which poison is more intense.
