Batman Vs. Superman is currently getting hammered on Rotten Tomatoes by the critics.
The film sits at only a 32%, while at the same time audiences are more positive with 78%.
I’m going to see Batman Vs. Superman tonight, so I’m going to wait until after to read some of those reviews.
That said, I tweeted this earlier:
Sites are giving #bvs negative reviews but gave #ForceAwakens glowing reviews? #fishy

The cast of Batman Vs. Superman also weighs in on the negative reviews. Yahoo caught up with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Zack Snyder and Amy Adams. Watch the video below for more.
The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions. And the thing about personal opinions is that they always come from a place. And there’s a preconceived idea which you have to get past a critic before you start writing your article or your review, and that affects everything.
What is really going to matter, I believe, is what the audience says. Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story or not and so the audience’s voice is loudest and after this weekend the audience, at least partly, will have spoken.
I know that Zack [Snyder] doesn’t make the movies – or none of us – are making the movies for the critics. You can’t go into it with that perspective. I know we really hope the fans like it and so far the reaction has been really positive on that front.
If you’re interested in a film you should see it and form your own opinion rather than just going on the word of somebody [else].
I’m a comic book guy and I made the movie based as much as I could on that aesthetic. And so I don’t know how else to do it 100%, so it is what it is.
