Alongside "Zoolander 2," "Batman v Superman" leads in nominations at the 37th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards. While some critics think it's deserved for being such a lackluster superhero "epic," some DC fans either argue the film isn't bad enough to be nominated—and the film is actually a decent teaser to the "Justice League" and the DCEU movie universe. What do you think?

Critics have panned the film for being uneven, bloated and rushed. Many believe "BvS" is a worrisome introduction to the DCEU. And critics—like fans—have high expectations for superhero films, thanks to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Polygon's Julia Alexander wrote: 

The film is sitting at a 27 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has been mocked for many of its scenes, including the infamous moment both Batman and Superman realized their mothers were both named Martha.

But even some film critics argue their peers have been too harsh on the film. Contributor writers and fans—like Forbes' Erik Kain and Huffington Post's Robert Peterpaul—argue that many of the critics fail to appreciate its comic book roots. While detractors believe the film was a mess, fans appreciated the comic book references and the set up for future DCEU live-action films.

Ultimately, "Batman v Superman" still made $873 million worldwide.

Fans are upset that the film—while not the best superhero flick of 2016—is nominated for eight Razzies. It seems kind of harsh.
