  • Rotten Tomatoes responds to fringe group's Black Panther review bomb threats

The Page purported to be home to a group of DC fans who, in an effort to jab at Disney and apparently Marvel fans, made plans to sabotage Rotten Tomatoes' audience ratings with negative reviews.

"Others were more tempered, like writer Dave Schilling, who says, "'Black Panther' is not the best Marvel movie. "While we respect our fans' diverse opinions, we do not condone hate speech", Rotten Tomatoes said in their statement.

Shortly after Rotten Tomatoes issued the statement, the group's Facebook page was no longer available and appeared to have been deactivated.

Following a star-studded world premiere on Monday in Los Angeles, ticket sales for the Marvel Studios production, which stars Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong'o, has also eclipsed every other movie that now has tickets for sale on Fandango.

Their pieces will be displayed in front of the watching world during Fashion Week, and it's been confirmed that Industria at 775 Washington Street - where the Marvel event is being staged - will be given a "Black Panther"-inspired makeover especially for the show".

Vulture.com recently spoke to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige during the press junket for "BLACK PANTHER" to discuss when his contract at Marvel Studios expires and the current state of superhero films and if fatigue will ever set in for the genre.

The Black Panther screening won't be the first time Spencer will buy out a theater.

The objective of the event as stated was to "Give Black Panther a Rotten Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes".

The group of DCEU trolls is now reportedly angry about Marvel's decision to put out a movie that features a predominantly black cast and women in lead roles, though that wasn't mentioned in earlier reports. The series depicts Black Panther as T'Challa, king and protector of the fictional African nation of Wakanda.

Lupita Nyong'o stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (February 1) and claimed that she's in jeopardy of loosing friends over the selection of people she's choosing to invite to the premieres of her anticipated film Black Panther.
