James Gunn’s reviews Suicide squad they’re coming, and there’s already a clear difference in their Rotten Tomatoes scores compared to previous DCEU movies. Rotten Tomatoes has always been a big talking point in the DCEU, particularly after the incredibly low scores assigned to Zack Snyder. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and David Ayer Suicide squad. Things have improved a bit since then, but it is still not a problem that they have fully recovered from, as evidenced by Wonder Woman 1984punctuation dropping massively after launch. The problem is only exacerbated by the impeccable history of fresh MCU scores for all 24 MCU movies, making the DCEU’s Rotten Tomatoes track record even weirder.
While reviewing the scores of Suicide squad they’re still coming in (which means the numbers will certainly change until shortly after release) the initial results are a stark contrast to not just other DC movies, but the MCU as well. When it was initially unveiled, Rotten Tomatoes announced Suicide squad had a perfect 100% score in its first 43 reviews, but has since dropped slightly to 97% with 77 reviews, which sets it apart from most other comic book movies, but not just because of the high Tomatometer, as Some of the other data collected from Rotten Tomatoes also differs from the kind of behavior we normally see in these movies.
If 97% hold, Suicide squad It will be rated higher than any other film in the MCU and DCEU, but despite the high score, it is surprisingly not the best-reviewed film of the two franchises. The Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer represents a simple percentage of thumbs up or thumbs, discarding the positive or negative review limb, meaning that the Tomatometer can sometimes represent above or below actual sentiment in the reviews themselves. In this case, it is overrepresented, as Suicide squad has an average review score of 8 out of 10, which is good enough for the highest average review score in the DCEU, but ranks third in the MCU behind Black Panther (96% – 8.3 / 10) and Avengers Endgame (94% – 8.2 / 10). Meanwhile, the next highest rated film in the DCEU is Wonder Woman 93% with a 7.7 out of 10.
Weather Suicide squad It has high ratings everywhere, another thing that sets its score apart from other MCU and DCEU movies is the difference between the Tomatometer and the average rating. If we convert the 8 out of 10 to a percentage, 80%, we see that the average of reviews comes in 17 points below the 97% of the Tomatometer, which is tied with Iron Man, Thor: Ragnarok, Y Ant-Man and the Wasp for the largest difference in the two scores. Although the DCEU has beaten it cleanly in this category, as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and David Ayer Suicide squad they obtained average review scores 22 and 23 points higher than the scores reflected in the Tomatometer.
The score is sure to change in the next week or two as more reviews come in (most DCEU movies get over 400 total reviews submitted to Rotten Tomatoes), and with only 77 reviews at the time of this writing, it is much more susceptible to change. at this stage of the game, especially considering that comic book movies tend to have a slightly more positive initial review (see Wonder Woman 1984). Either way, the first few numbers certainly settled Suicide squadIn addition to most of the other DCEU and MCU comic book movies, it will be fascinating to see where the scores fall when all is said and done.
