With Black Panther just a few weeks away from its theatrical release and with early viewings giving the movie great reviews, it seems DC fans are looking to sabotage the positive vibes coming out of the MCU's latest offering by attempting to drop the movies score on Rotten Tomato by negatively rating the movie.
First of all, there is nothing these DC fans or any other person can do to stop the moment that Black Panther has at this point. Black comic book fans have been waiting for this movie since Wesley Snipes tried to get it made in the 90's. After seeing Black Panther debit in Civil War and the respect and honor the MCU paid to the character, the anticipation for this movie has been fever pitched for over 2 years. Nothing anyone does or says is gonna stop that.
Secondly, there is a undercurrent of racism to this campaign against Black Panther. Whereas there has always been this Brand war between DC and Marvel, at no point in time had there been a moment where DC fans were actively looking to sabotage the success of a MCU movie. I don't remember this around Spider-Man Homecoming or Guardians 2. It seems the excessive excitement of a MCU movie starring a Black characters has brought out all the Rediit and Make America White again racists to try and prevent this movie from being uber successful.
But lastly, I wish DCEU fans would use this energy to hold the makers of DC movies accountable fro the drek they keep producing. Since the launch of Batman V Superman, which was awful, they have made one good movie in Wonder Woman- and calling that good is even a stretch. Suicide Squad and Justice League were both terrible in their own special way and the rest of their extended universe is mirred in production issues( Flash and Cyborg) or is Aqua man- a film starring a character nobody likes. And that does not even factor in the issues concerning the Batman reboot and if they will need to move on from Ben Affleck.
I really wish DCEU fans would just focus on their own house. Marvel fans aren't out here wanting your movies to fail... in fact its quite the opposite. We want the movies to thrive so this thing we call Comic Book Movies continues for years to come. But DCEU gotta do their part to put out movies that fans and critics agree that are quality. Until that happens, enjoy Suicide Squad 2 and please shut the fuck up!
