They overload work on their writer forcing them to do all the work of a publisher, editor, and writer, essentially forcing low-quality articles. The "editors" do not edit that's all up to the writers.
The next time you read one of their articles, remember that they scammed the writers to do it for free.
Tip for consumers: Don't, go literally anywhere else.
Following on from the last point, when they have an opinion, they will never let up, they will poison people's opinions. This makes them bigoted
Finally, they lie and paint completely inaccurate pictures of something they want to "smear". This makes them bull$#*!, they should be thankful I can't give negative ratings.
Dozens of users on sites such as Reddit have also highlighted the apparently low quality of ScreenRant articles nowadays, and how unconfirmed rumors and poorly sourced fan theories are often used to write articles to generate more views -- or which actors on some TV shows have a worse reputation than others (one article mentioned how "it has been said" by certain seemingly unnamed peoples that an actress "can be rude" at conventions). A bit ironic that so many writers at a site who constantly write about things being "offensive" do not seem to hesitate when viciously attacking, labeling or smearing other individuals quite regularly.
With all due respect, from my personal impression, some of their articles seem more like high school girls' high-strung social media rants rather than truly legitimate and valid criticism of any piece of art or entertainment. Please, for the sake of us all, do a little better, ScreenRant, and try to re-evaluate and improve your standards.
Marvel Comics negative highlights generate clicks only from the MArvel fans and the random ones. No Dc fans.
So i will drop any generical negative angle for any DC productions and garantee my internet cash! That´s it.
it´s just a fanboy Marvel site to proliferate any fake news and speculation only for the clickbait sake. If no conflits comes around, if the nerdsphere is in peace with complete satisfaction for all the productions that come with us...this site will genereta enough negative buzz for no marvel studios productions just for the sake to generete conflit...stay relevant....and more clicks.
As someone who wrote for them, I can tell you that the editors don't care what the readers think. They advised us writers on numerous occasions to just not read the comments so we wouldn't have to see negative feedback. If you criticize them, the editors dismiss you as a baseless hater.
Screen Rant has continued to struggle even with their listicles, so they've slowly ramped up the workload for the writers, and delved into sleazier topics to get attention. It's not uncommon to now see articles about sexualized superheroes, celebrity drug scandals, and other tabloid quality writing. It doesn't even pay well anymore since they have repeatedly slashed the pay for writers. At this point, I'm glad I'm gone from there because the whole vibe behind the scenes is that Screen Rant is a sinking ship.
There are so many better news sites out there, so support them instead. Don't give your attention to Screen Rant now that they have devolved into shameless clickbait. They are unprofessional and not worth your time.
Speaking of, even the lead editor of the last 7+ years recently left the company. Could it be that the new owners are more interested in clicks than quality? That'd be a shame, because it used to be the opposite. Now Screen Rant pumps out crap like opinion lists and quizzes. The occasional movie review slips through, but usually their reviews are out of touch. For example, when Iron Fist was released on Netflix, Screen Rant easily put out more than ten articles on why Iron Fist was so bad and no one liked it, even though their comments section was full of readers who claimed they DID in fact like Iron Fist. Sadly, the truth about Screen Rant lies in their comments section, as long are allowed to post. After calling out perhaps one too many writers/editors for wrong facts or misrepresentation, my comments are automatically marked as spam. There's no spam, I'm not pasting links or soliciting business. I'm merely sharing my opinion and knowledge. The old Screen Rant loved their fanbase interaction, but now it's some sort of totalitarian regime. So I say so long Screen Rant. Good luck with the clicks.
Tip for consumers: Don't read the articles. At most check their sources. You'll find much more reliable news that way.

Complete scam. They hire mass amounts of writers and do not pay the ones they let go, forcing them to do slave number of hours on articles. As a writer for the company, they will swing money in your face then you will not get paid.
