2016 wasn’t the greatest year for DC in the press. Not only were they slaughtered by critics on Rotten Tomatoes, but they also had to deal with tension from fans and geek sites. That said, there was also a lot of praise for Batman v Superman, with a lot of fans agreeing that it was the best film of the year. One geek site allowed fans to vote for their favourites. The results, however, are being questioned. Did ComicBook.com rig its Best of 2016 poll?
There’s something very fishy going on with the voting for the best 2016 ComicBook.com Movie Awards. It seems some fans are alleging that the voting was rigged.
The nominees for Best Comic Book Movie were: Deadpool, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, Sucide Squad, and Doctor Strange. And while it seems that Batman v Superman was a sure winner (you can even read the comments here), the results showed otherwise.
