At first fans got the news that Snyder will be directing BvS. Many weren't happy with it and we all had doubts. But we slowly accepted him.
Months later we received the shocking news of Affleck being cast as Batman. Everyone complained and went crazy. The internet was in an uproar. We all thought Snyder is out of his mind. It was a nightmare. In time, with much struggle, we started accepting him as Batman too.
Then we got the news of Gal Gadot being selected as Wonder Woman. Again, all went insane. No one was accepting this horrible decision, many still don't. There was no reason to see her as the strong amazonian WW. For the third time, despite any proof of it, we fooled ourselves into thinking she is a good actress and forced ourselves into believing she looks like Wonder Woman.
Then we came to know of Jesse Eisenberg as Luthor. Tired of their ****, we expressed our anger again but this time the backlash wasn't strong at all. One after another, so many ****** castings. As always, we had no choice but to eventually become delusional and see him as Luthor when he looks anything but. We preached examples of Heath Ledger to others, saying it might be the same case here.
Then came the horrible Doomsday, trailers, Ezra Miller and whatnot. But by that time DC had already tamed us. All this **** is the result of that and the fault of those who were happy to bootlick DC for every bad decision. To those of us, you deserve it.
Please also know that fan ratings are unreliable. If you need a shining example of why, take ''The Interview' as an example. It had a whopping 9.9 on IMDB before it was even released. And this wasn't on some piddly number of ratings, it had been rated by over 30,000 users. It's what made IMDB block users from rating movies before their release. Why? An anonymous user on 4chan recommended that people rush to IMDB and give The Interview a perfect 10 rating as a show of protest. Tens of thousands of people complied. Without having seen the movie, they gave it a perfect score. DC and Marvel movies are victims to this and the whole fiasco has revealed the flaws of IMDB that many longtime users like myself already know, that Sci-fi, fantasy and comic fanboys and fangirls have made IMDB completely unreliable for any movie in those genres. Everything automatically gets a boosted score. Kids give movies high ratings before they have even seen a film to show their loyalty. It's rare that movie ratings on IMDB rise over time. Instead, the ratings usually plummet. Why? Because the people who initially rush out to see the movie in theaters are the hardcore fans who buy into the hype and then give it high ratings, regardless of quality. In the later weeks and months when everyone else in the moviegoing public watches it, the ratings normalize. Which means that in a film's initial months, the early ratings are utterly useless because they're terribly inflated. Same goes for BvS, just four days ago it had a 9.1 rating, now it's 7.7 and is expected to go further down the road.
