isn't there an embargo on Rotten Tomatoes posting it's review score?

Must be, it's clearly not going to review well.

I really enjoyed Wonder Woman but looking at reviews for Justice League it doesn't seem like it's anywhere near the same quality. I think I still want to see it but I'm very wary as I've really not enjoyed most of the new DC stuff except for WW.

Man of Steel starts well for me but the last third is tedious and gets worse with subsequent viewings. BvS is a confusing, joyless mess with one of the worst bits of screen writing in recent years (Martha!). Suicide Squad is the worst of all though. An utter shambles of a movie with almost no redeeming qualities. Some say Margot Robbie is good as Harley Quinn and whilst I agree the character is completely pointless and totally wasted.

Wonder Woman suffers the same issue and has the same punch/smash cgi fest last act that nearly all superhero movies do. However, taken as a whole I thought it was excellent engaging fun and not in the slightest bit tedious.

Wonder Woman felt too much like a Captain America First Avenger rehash. It was still decent, but not the pant wetting classic that some reviews made it out to be.

Not an embargo per se, or, rather a self imposed one. They want to review the film on their Facebook streaming show and that's tonight at 12.01. So they're not putting the aggregator on till then. I think we can all see how it's going to go though................

It's not looking promising is it? Even Jason Momoa didn't seem particularly enthusiastic about it on the Graham Norton show last week & had to resort to showing off his trident twirling skills.

Danny Elfman's score for this is pretty decent though. Nice to hear him reprise his Batman theme from the Burton movies again & hint at the John Williams Superman theme.

WB took the cheap and dirty path and the result is a universe built on no universe building.

It will make a $1bn at the box office, but how knows how much actual profit.

I thought this would review fairly well. Maybe the high scores the over rated Wonder Woman got is having a negative affect.

Affleck is a dead man walking in his role. There is no way I can see him doing another.

The standalone WW film has nothing to do with the reviews of this. It's reviewing badly because the critics don't think it's a good film.

I'm not sure it will, none of the other DC films have and this is reviewing poorly.

Affleck's problem is he is probably the only one I can name who is in this, hence he probably has to take a lot of the heat.

His views on blockbuster films are pretty much worthless.
