“Unfortunately,” the blog post noted, “we have seen an uptick in non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling, which we believe is a disservice to our general readership.”
This, [no longer showing the “Want to See” percentage score or allowing comments on a movie before it’s released] for fans (and presumably studios), is a long overdue reprieve. It’s nearly impossible to tell which comments are from actual fans and which are from users just out for the lulz.
As for the need to “save” the Captain Marvel, that seems unnecessary as the movie has crushed other recent superhero movie pre-sale numbers and sits behind Black Panther, which went on to make over a billion dollars and rack up three Oscars.
Fortunately, it’s clear that a handful of emotionally fragile boys throwing a tantrum will have little effect on what will likely become one of the biggest movies of the year.
