Rotten Tomatoes, the review site at the centre of the Captain Marvel critiques, has responded to the ongoing “review bombing” of films by removing certain parts of the site to allow it to perform as intended.

With films such as Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Black Panther being targeted alongside Captain Marvel before their release, Rotten Tomatoes has tweaked the site to not offer a comment section prior to a film debut so that the site can perform and provide a stronger functionality as a review website.

Rotten Tomatoes released a statement saying: “Starting this week, Rotten Tomatoes will launch the first of several phases of updates that will refresh and modernize our Audience Rating System. We’re doing it to more accurately and authentically represent the voice of fans, while protecting our data and public forums from bad actors.”

“We are disabling the comment function prior to a movie’s release date. Unfortunately, we have seen an uptick in non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling, which we believe is a disservice to our general readership. We have decided that turning off this feature for now is the best course of action. Don’t worry though, fans will still get to have their say: Once a movie is released, audiences can leave a user rating and comments as they always have.”

In other news, Aquaman has become the worlds highest grossing international solo superhero film.
