A few years back I did a tournament of every theatrically released comic book adaptation. Several films have been released since then. So with this pandemic raging, I figured this be a nice way to pass the time. Below are links to the prior tournaments. 2011-https://forums.superherohype.com/threads/battle-of-the-comic-book-movies-tournament.350803/ Winner: The Dark Knight 2013-https://forums.superherohype.com/threads/battle-of-the-comic-book-films-tournament-2013-edition.460343/ Winner: Avengers I did research and came up with all the round 1 matches. As previous winners, I gave The Dark Knight and Avengers byes. I tried to find common things between films(Directors, Actors, Year released, etc) Now given I'm including ALL comic book adaptations, there will be some mismatches. But I find it more to include all films rather than the best of the best as it gives way to a more unpredictable bracket(certain films not making it out of round 1 while other surprising ones advance etc.) Here are the rules 1. A film must have a traditional theatrical release, meaning -No direct to TV/DVD/streaming films(DC animated films, TV Doctor Strange, etc.) -No one night engagements(Ex: The Killing Joke or Harley Quinn/Batman) -No Films that released Internationally, but not domestically(Dolph Lundgren's The Punisher) 2. At the end of 24 hours, I'll count the votes and the one with the most votes advances to the next round. -No votes after the 24 hour period will be counted -In the event of a tie, the first vote after the 24 hour period will be the decider. 3. There isn't a traditional bracket like say March madness. Once a movie advances, I catalog it and once a round is over, I make the next round's matchups based again on common elements(director, actor, studio, etc) 4. There might be matches that are three films rather than two since we have an uneven amount of films entered. That's it(for now at least). Now let us proceed to Round 1 Match 1!
