Justice League's Rotten Tomatoes score has been officially revealed — and it's far from superheroic

Justice League is ready to soar into theaters, and after some middling controversy, its highly buzzed-about Rotten Tomatoes score has finally landed.

The verdict? A not-so-sizzling 43.

That score — an aggregate of ratings through 3 p.m. on Nov. 15 — was revealed overnight on Rotten Tomatoes' Facebook show See It/Skip It.

That's a far cry from the DC Extended Universe's last cinematic outing, Wonder Woman, which nabbed a whoppingly triumphant 92 percent rating. Still, it's up from Justice League's key lead-in, 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which eked out a mere 27 percent — not to mention the universally maligned Suicide Squad, which clocked in at 26 percent. 

Critics' reviews have themselves been mixed, with some singling out the movie's fun tone while others called out a ho-hum, generic approach.

The score comes days after Rotten Tomatoes announced it would delay the big reveal by 24 hours in order to debut it on its Facebook show — but not before that score prematurely and briefly popped up on a movie app. At that time, it was actually up to 48 percent, but that score was swiftly yanked from the site.

Justice League hits theaters today.
