While the social media embargo has been lifted for Warner Bros.’s upcoming blockbuster Justice League with all signs pointing towards positive to mixed reactions, there is no denying that most fans and cinephiles are eagerly anticipating the film’s Rotten Tomatoes score.
However, the aggregator film website has announced that the Tomatometer for the film will not be revealed until 12:01 am EST this Thursday, November 16 rather than immediately publishing the score as reviews come in post-embargo. Instead, the Tomatometer for Justice League will instead be revealed in conjunction with the website’s new Facebook show See It/Skip It.
At the time of this writing, there is no word whether or not this is at the request of Warner Bros. or rather a means to not only garner hype but to also get viewers to tune into See It/Skip It but it is evident that it seems as though Rotten Tomatoes wants to avoid any sort of misrepresentation of the Tomatometer.
Although it is important to note that criticism is always subjective, one could argue that this piece of news from Rotten Tomatoes puts more of an emphasis on the actual reviews for Justice League rather than the metrics behind the score.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.
