Warner Bros.is embargoing critic reviews until 2:50 a.m. Wednesday morning, leaving just one full day between reviews going live and the film opening Thursday evening.

On one hand, you could look at this situation as a positive sign for Justice League and its eventual RT score.

Eager DC Film fans will have to wait a little longer to decide if there's a Rotten Tomatoes conspiracy against the DC Extended Universe - the reveal of the score has been delayed.

The highly anticipated "Justice League" opens on Friday and many critics have already seen and panned the film, but review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes hasn't published any of them, which is leading to speculation that Time Warner is covering up the movie's awful feedback. It represents a potential conflict of interest in the case of the "Justice League" movie, Fast Company noted, because Warner Bros., which made "Justice League", also owns a minority stake in Rotten Tomatoes through owners Fandango.

Wonder Woman, Justice League's immediate DC Films predecessor, has a 92% Fresh rating on the site, while Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the film which established Justice League's storyline, has a 27% Fresh rating. Generally, the closer the reviews are published to the movie's release date, the lower the score, according to a Mashable report.

"Given the complicated setup of media conglomerates, it's not possible to draw a straight line between that fact and the delay of the Tomatometer score for 'Justice League, '" said Vox writer Alissa Wilkinson.

Breitbart's John Nolte blamed it on "corporate chicanery", but others feel a Tomatometer score wouldn't impact the film's success because it already has a loyal, built-in fan base.

Usually, studios lift review embargoes a week or more before a film opens.

Thus far, the reviews for Justice League have been kinder than some expected. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
