The Marvel Movie Tournament

Marvel Movie Tournament

Welcome back true believers,

The Marvel Blogathon wraps up next week with a review of Guardians of the Galaxy written by MovieRob. We’ve gone through 34 movies, 14 different superheroes/supergroups, 16 sequels, 3 reboots (counting X-Men: First Class, The Incredible Hulk, and The Amazing Spider-Man). Actually, forget all those numbers, I don’t know ho to classifyorget those numbers, I don’t know how to classify Elektra, Punisher: War Zone, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, or The Wolverine.

With the release of Daredevil on Netflix and the upcoming debut of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we thought now would be a good time to find out which of the Marvel movies are your favorites. Instead of making a simple poll we decided to create a week-long tournament so we can best crown a champion. The bracket is shown below along with a poll for you to vote on Round 1.

We chose The Avengers, Spider-Man, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Iron Man as the top seeds. That gives four franchises representation at the top with the MCU only in two slots. The rest of the rankings were made based on Rotten Tomatoes ratings and Box Office takes. Some movies were shuffled around to avoid pitting films from the same franchise against each other too early.

Think your favorite movie is ranked too low? Our bad. Make sure it lives on by voting. Winners of Round 1 will be announced in a few days along with the matchups for Round 2.

Head here for a list of all the movies with reviews from Flashback/Backslide writers and other sites.

So…Whose side are you on?

(NOTE: For the Round of 34, the lowest four seeds occupy two spots. These are essentially “play-in” games.You can vote for any of these lower seeds if you choose and the responses below are formatted accordingly. )

Thanks for reading!
