But what about that pesky Rotten Tomatoes score? Of course, the film's rating on the website could impact the box office collections majorly but it also raised eyebrows and speculations that the movie has a negative ranking on the site.

Justice League now has an official Rotten Tomatoes Score, as the review aggregating site finally reveals the film currently has a 43% rate. However, those who are waiting for the Rotten Tomatoes scores will have to wait another day for the site to reveal its rating.

That would put it right in the middle of the road in terms of Warner Brothers recent DCU movies, with the previous entries ranging from the highs of Wonder Woman (92%), and the all the way down through Man Of Steel (55%), Batman V Superman (27%) and Suicide Squad (26%).

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.

Under normal circumstances, a score for Justice League would have popped up on Rotten Tomatoes by this morning. Conversely, blockbusters with rock bottom scores such as Baywatch (19 percent) and Transformers: The Last Knight (15 percent) faltered domestically over the summer. But by delaying the score reveal, it won't be on Rotten Tomatoes until mere hours before the first showing of the movie.
