This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

Megadeth frontman and noted conspiracy theorist, Dave Mustaine has once again taken to the internet to give his ever concise and insightful political opinion. This time however, the veteran thrasher turns to the world of movies and the recent blockbuster, "Batman V Superman."

The movie has been on the receiving end of some very harsh reviews from critics and many moviegoers, save for fans of DC Comics, who seem convinced that Marvel paid off all film reviewers because it's "just a fun superhero movie," whilst simultaneously criticizing the public for not liking it because it was "too intelligent and philosophical" for them. Mustaine however, is as usual, convinced he's got the true answer.

"There's been much made of the reaction to visionary genius Zack Snyder's latest movie, with many placing the blame on Marvel and Disney. While I don't think they're completely innocent, we the American people must wake up and realise that our own so called President, Barack Obama is behind it! It may seem a strenuous claim but look closer at his name and you'll notice that there's no D there. No D = No D.C! Obama is trying to destroy the American icon that is Superman by trying to get everyone to hate the character's movie, just as he hates America! Mark my words, it won't be long until critics are bashing the Statue of Liberty, bald eagles and Wal-Mart too!"

Alex Jones, Ted Nugent, Donald Trump and Kid Rock could not be reached for comment, but did all like his post on Facebook.
