They're accusing critics of being unfair to all DC movies.
A petition is circling the web right now in support of 'Suicide Squad', campaigning to get review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes taken down for giving DC films 'unjust bad reviews' in the wake of the critics' verdict on David Ayer's hugely anticipated new movie starring Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Will Smith.
Suicide Squad doesn't do well with the critics
Rotten Tomatoes have calculated the percentage of positive reviews for 'Suicide Squad' at just 35% on their Tomatometer, and while they are to reveal the Audience Score, they say that 98% of website users want to see the movie.
David Ayer - Warner Bros. Presents "The Big Picture", An Exclusive Presentation Highlighting The Summer Of 2016 And Beyond held at The Colosseum Inside Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino In Las Vegas - Las Vegas, Nevada, United States - Wednesday 13th April 2016
Is it really wise to trust your most dangerous sworn enemies? Sometimes you have little choice when there are threats in the world too brutal to put your best men on. Amanda Weller is in charge of a top secret government organisation known as A.R.G.U.S. They have in their detainment some of the world's craziest psychopaths, supervillains and powerful mutants, and while they are being of no use to society stuck in prison cells, Weller introduces a brand new team known as the Suicide Squad in which these criminals can carry out seemingly impossible missions with the promise of freedom or, at least, reduced sentences. Among them are such fiends as Harley Quinn, The Joker, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Enchantress, Rick Flagg and Killer Croc - who are all willing to band together and save the world, even if they die trying.
Lucky fans in attendance at San Diego's Comic-Con on Saturday got their first look at the much anticipated super-villain movie.
Suicide Squad may have another month of filming left, but that didn't stop the movie’s stars as well as director David Ayer from taking a road trip to Comic Con this weekend, to wet fan’s appetites for the highly anticipated super-villain flick.

Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Common, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholz, Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje and Karen Fukuhara were all in attendance for the film’s panel on Saturday, with Joker Jared Leto the only noticeable absentee.
Despite the promotional materials already out there, including the pictures of the cast in full costume, the director assures fans that all plot twists are intact.
There’s been quite a number of photos and teasers over the last month or so from the set of Suicide Squad that have been endlessly pored over, but director David Ayer has assured fans that they haven’t given anything away and that there’s still surprises to come.
The Warner Bros.-backed movie wrapped up shooting on the streets of Toronto last week, and the 47 year old director took to Twitter to say that the surprises that the film has in store for fans remain intact, and have not been compromised in any way by the large amount of material already in the public arena.

Director David Ayer has shared the first official image of Leto as the DC villain.
Unless you’ve been living under an entertainment free rock you’ll know that Jared Leto is set to play The Joker in David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad movie. Of course you’ll probably also know that Leto has been undergoing a pretty drastic transformation in recent months in order to become the DC villain. Well prepare to see things taken one step further as the first official image of Leto's Joker has been revealed.
As he was, Jared before going full on Joker
Director David Ayer shared the first official image of Leto in full on Joker garb on Friday, on the 75th anniversary of the character’s first comic book appearance. With his hair cropped and dyed green, the 43 year old cut a pretty menacing figure in the pic, which also showed him sporting silver capped teeth and a variety of tattoos.

Don't worry, Jared Leto is still playing the Joker.
Jared Leto as the Joker - I was into it from the word "go," but now we even have a first look picture to get the online convo going. The actor's look for Suicide Squad calls back to an earlier Joker from the comic book universe.
Where is Jared?
The square hairdo and blurry, 80s-looking filter add a nice arty touch, but the camera Leto is holding seems to call back to one of the character's most iconic covers -The Killing Joke. It's one of the few origin stories for the Joker. The pic was tweeted on Thursday by Suicide Squad director David Ayer, who added the hashtag #whereisjared.

R.I.P. the most luscious locks in Hollywood...
It had to happen one day, but we’re still deeply sadden to report that Jared Leto’s long, shiny, ombré-d locks are unfortunately no more. Against our wishes, the 43 year old actor took a trip to the hairdressers yesterday, in preparation for his upcoming role as The Joker in David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie.
Before the chop, Jared with hair and beard in tact.
Oscar winner Leto was just as well known for his luscious mane as he was for his acting talents, so the loss of his locks has hit fans hard. The handsome actor has sported the long haired look since 2012, though he has previously rocked a shorter style and even had a pink mohican in 2010.
The primary Suicide Squad cast is complete. And it's a good one.
Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne have been announced as the primary cast members for the DC Comics supervillain movie Suicide Squad. Leto is set to play Batman's fearsome rival The Joker, while Smith will play Deadshot. The gang will be helmed by Hardy's Rick Flag.
Will Smith heads the cast for Warner Bros' Suicide Squad movie
Elsewhere, Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot Robbie will play The Joker's accomplice Harley Quinn, whole Jai Courtney will take on the role of Boomerage. British supermodel Delevigne - who was rumored to be playing Quinn after a Halloween post on Instagram - will play Enchantress.
