Celebrities On The Set Of Univision's "Despierta America"Ouch. "Suicide Squad" director David Ayer may regret saying "F--k Marvel" but he'd probably double-down on a chorus of "F--k the critics."

DC and Warner Bros. had rough treatment from critics with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" but the trailers for "Suicide Squad" looked great, and the film seemed poised to be a hit with both fans and reviewers. Well, there's still hope for the fans -- and definitely for a blockbuster run at the box office -- but the early reviews have been bad. Really bad. As of Wednesday morning, after 72 reviews, "Suicide Squad" only has a 33 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

This has done nothing to help heal the fandom's DC v Marvel war, and DC fans think it's more evidence of critics's pro-Marvel bias. In fact, there's even a petition to shut down Rotten Tomatoes due to the bad DC reviews.



That may be the new definition of butthurt. But it does have more than 10,600 supporters at this point. Better to petition that movie critics be made the villains of the next DC film.

Director David Ayer, who did apologize for saying "F--k Marvel" at his film's premiere, took to Twitter after the bad reviews started pouring in:


That quote translates to "I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees." He's standing by the film, whether anyone else is or not. And hey, "Wonder Woman" is next, and that one looks great ... right?
