After it was announced that the Rotten Tomatoes score for Justice League wouldn't be revealed until the film's release date, DC Comics fans tensed up worse than Ben Affleck's grim Batman portrayal.

Now that the reviews are flying in, it appears Warner Bros.' superhero ensemble blockbuster was actually a step up from Batman V Superman — unfortunately, that's not saying much.

With Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller stealing the show as Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and The Flash, reviewers weren't even completely put off by Affleck's forgettable performance as the Dark Knight.
