The Top 20 Stories of the Week are the stories we think you should check out on /Film from the previous week.
This week was a fun one for comic book fans with reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rolling in, working up such an uproar that we wanted to remind people what the point of film criticism is and why fans and critics are really the same people, and neither of them are wrong when it comes to their opinions on movies.
Plus, we got the first trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie, a new image from Wonder Woman, a tour of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set, casting for the new iteration of The Tick on Amazon, as well as the first trailers for Deepwater Horizon and War Dogs, formerly known as Arms and the Dudes.
Get all the Top 20 Stories of the Week after the jump.
