Does anyone else think dots can be connected between the Trump supporters who believe the election will be stolen and DC superhero movie fans who believe film critics have been bribed by Marvel into writing pro-Marvel, anti-DC reviews? I’m not referring to a Venn diagram overlap, though some overlap may exist. No, I simply mean that these two groups appear to be cut from the same cloth. They think that their beliefs are shared by the majority and that any evidence to the contrary is propaganda spread by a corrupt, dishonest media.
There was a lot happening in the news, but as far as new releases go, this week was unusually quiet for late October.
And now, the stats.
