The 26th MCU movie Eternals, directed by Chloé Zhao, was released last November. The movie received mixed to average reviews from the critics. And although the audience showed the movie more love than the critics did (audience score of 78%), the movie is still the lowest-rated MCU movie on Rotten Tomatoes. With only 48%, it’s also the only MCU movie with a rotten score.
Eternals is set to be released on Disney+ on January 12. Ahead of that, Rotten Tomatoes recently asked the followers on its official Instagram account if Eternals really deserve to be the worst-rated MCU movie.

Today, Zhao shared the post on her Instagram story and here’s what she had to say:
“Does it..? Join the fun debate or if you are not sure, check it out on Disney+ on January 12 with directors commentary and many features.”
Zhao also tagged the official Rotten Tomatoes account and put the green heart emoji next to it. Do you think Zhao’s superhero movie deserves to be considered the worst one?
