Razzie Awards: Two Comic Book Movies on the Shortlist

The annual Razzie Awards celebrate the industry's most disappointing movies and performances. Last year, Josh Trank’s Fant4stic won three Razzies: Worst Picture, Worst Remake, and Worst Director. Naturally, the movie was the lowest point for comic book movies that year. And while many fans blamed the studio for interfering in the creative process, Josh Trank lost the director's chair for an upcoming Star Wars movie, as well as other anticipated projects.

This year, there are two CBMs on the Razzie Awards shortlist. Based on the list, the voters select five nominees for each category. And, as expected, the comic book movies that made the shortlist are also the ones that disappointed the most: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (eight nominations on the shortlist) and Suicide Squad (five nominations on the shortlist).

As a comparison, Josh Trank’s Fant4stic had five final nominations in total.
