Thanks to the Ben Affleck memes roaming the Internet, we’ve heard his and Henry Cavill’s responses to the largely negative reviews of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now actors Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) have chimed in, too.
Taking to Instagram, the duo posted memes poking fun at critics who skewered the film. The image from Momoa reenacted Bruce Wayne’s party scene with Clark Kent: “Critics who can’t act or know comics are a bit hypocritical, wouldn’t you say?” Fisher posted another that spoofed Wayne’s speech to Alfred.
“S— made me laugh,” Momoa wrote. “Just go have fun watch enjoy. Proud of WB and DC There’s a lot coming.”

Along with Ezra Miller’s The Flash, the actors both had cameos in Batman v Superman, and the pair are currently in the gym training for Justice League: Part One. “Happy Easter from Cyborg and Aquaman,” Momoa wrote on Sunday, posing next to Fisher.

When asked by Yahoo Movies U.K. about the negative reviews of Batman v Superman, Cavill said, “What is going to really matter, I believe, is what the audience says. Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story, or not. So the audience’s voice is loudest, and after this weekend, the audience will at least partly have spoken.”
So far the box office numbers are looking good. Batman v Superman opened to an estimated $170.1 million, making it the biggest March opening, the biggest opening for Warner Bros., and the sixth biggest opening of all time.
