Comic Book Movie Madness

Comic Book Movie Madness

The battle for supremacy begins. A vote for the best CBM ever tournament style! Just like NCAA's March Madness take a look at the field of 68. Only one will be left standing.

Comic Book Movie Madness 



With San Diego Comic Con over and so many comic book movies out now dominating the box office each summer. I thought now would be a perfect time to see which Comic Book Movie reigns supreme.  Long gone are the days where fans would simply dream of their favorite characters brought to life on the big screen.  Despite all the hate comic book films are a billion dollar industry.  Anyone that knows me knows how much I love in no particular order comic books, movies, and sports! So why not combine each of my loves into one epic event.  A March Madness style tournament pitting movies based on comic books against one another to see who comes out on top.  So together with my crack staff(pretty much my younger brothers) we debated on which comic book movies should be in the first ever Comic Book Movie Madness.  Our criteria was simple it had to be a film released in the theaters (so no The Flash, Arrow, or Daredevil) and based on a comic book first (so no Incredibles). There were some comic book movies like The Losers are Swamp Thing that we didn't add this go around but hey next year we could put them in.  Some movies were so close together in quality we simply lumped them together example Fantastic Four & Fantastic Four 2.  Also like the NCAA Tournament there's a field now of 68 with 2 play in match-ups which will kick start the proceedings.

Below is the breakdown with finalized bracket coming after the play in match-ups.
