The Marvel vs. DC feud continues. If you haven’t been in tune with the pop culturesphere over the past few years, there’s been a lot of sour grapes from DC fans, who truly believe that the shared universe has been the victim of bias from critics. I can’t count the number of times I’ve personally been accused of having been paid off by Disney to write good reviews for their films and bad reviews for DC films (despite my rather generous reviews towards the latter group — I genuinely think each of their films has their positives).
Well, it’s coming to a head once again, with Marvel Studios’ latest release, Black Panther. Reactions for the film thus far has been off-the-charts, and given that this comes after the ho-hum reception to Justice League, some DC fanboys are frothing at the mouth, as evidenced by a campaign to tank Black Panther‘s Rotten Tomatoes score.
Check out some of the details below:

If you don’t want to read the specifics in an image, here is the main thrust of it, as written in the event:
“Given the massive success of the audience review rigging on the Rotten Tomatoes site for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and due to the sudden rise in those disgruntled with Disney business practices among other factors especially due to the corporate manipulations which created falsified bad press for the DCEU, I feel that it’s time to strike back at all those under Disney and bring down the house of mouse’s actions for paying off the critics that hurt DC Comics on film and for other parties affected by them.
I’ll be making events like this for Infinity War and the Netflix shows etc so we can rally together to truly make a difference. Share with your friends and all potential sympathizers.
P.S. If you want to spread spoilers to Marvel fanboys, use this event as a platform to inform us of targets!”
Now, there’s nothing wrong with disliking a film. As much as I enjoy both the Marvel and DC films, I can understand some fans having preferences of one over another. However, the fact that this comes in advance of anyone outside of critics actually seeing the film is ridiculous. Before even actually seeing the film, they’ve already decided they hate it. So inferior do they feel, that they need to make a campaign to drag a film needlessly through the mud.
Additionally, another unforgivable move is for them to target Marvel fans so they can spoil them before the film’s release. They’re monsters, the lot of them.
