That's really the hilarious thing about the response to the movie. Damning the movie after it won the golden lion because of the company it was in because of Polanski also being nominated. Then it would emboldened incels, mass shooters, and Republican's in general I guess? Then it won't be received well because it was too dark and depressing for a comic book movie. And then, and then, and then, and then.
Now it's a massive hit/critical success nominated with the other best movies of the year lmao.
The people that hated the movie the most helped it succeed. All the articles, tweets, hot takes, warning about the "dangerous" and "the movie we don't need right now."
They blew up the movies spot repeatedly and then were surprised it was huge and continues to get accolades. Don't give the movie free advertising over and over and over for like 6 months lol.
If you hate something don't keep it in the public consciousness during the entirety of awards season.
