Things We Saw Today: Batman V Superman and Hillary’s America Take Home Four Razzies Each
In the year’s least surprising awards race, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice cleaned up at the Golden Raspberry Awards (Razzies) with “wins” in four categories: Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel; Worst Screenplay; Worst Screen Combo (Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman); and Worst Supporting Actor (Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor).
Dinesh D’Souza’s uber-conservative documentary, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, also won four awards: Worst Picture, Worst Actor (D’Souza), Worst Director (D’Souza and Bruce Schooley), and Worst Actress (Becky Turner’s Hillary Clinton).

- When it comes to video games, Marvel is the one trying to imitate DC. At DICE 2017, Marvel Games creative director Bill Rosemann revealed that Marvel will not require its developers to tie their video games to the storylines in the MCU going forward. This is an imitation of DC’s model, which produced successful games like the Batman: Arkham series and Injustice: Gods Among Us while Marvel’s games floundered. As always, it’s heartening to see game developers given the license to use the best stories for their medium. (via io9)
