Behold! The Super-Movie Secret Wars are about to begin!

BEHOLD! I am the Craggonder and I have scoured time and space to gather together 128 of the finest Super Hero Movies Earth has to offer. Here, in my Battle Blog, they will fight each other until only one emerges triumphant – but which movie that may be…will be up to you!

My Super-Movie Secret Wars will take place over 13 Days, leading up to the release of “Avengers: Endgame” where the newly-crowned champion will take on the latest MCU release in a head to head battle.

The Tournament will take place on the following dates, with each round of voting open for 24 hours only starting at Noon (BST) each day. The votes are yours, as is the reason why you choose one over the other. You can vote for whichever you think is best, or most important, or had the best soundtrack or design. You can vote tactically to make sure your preferred option has an easier path to the championship.

GROUP STAGES 10th – 13th April

We begin with the Group Stages, where the movies will be drawn into 32 groups of 4 and you will have the chance to pick your two favourites from each group. Each day we’ll have eight groups of four for you to choose from with the two movies with the most votes in each group proceeding to the second round.

SECOND ROUND 14th – 17th April

No more safety net as we enter the elimination phase of the contest. Lose here and all is lost and from now on, you’ll only have one vote per match. For the 32 movies who win their respective matches, the third round ties await…

THIRD ROUND 18th – 19th April

16 matches, only eight spots available in the Fourth Round. The battle will really be heating up now.

QUARTER-FINALS 21st April

4 Matches, four contenders and for the four valiant, vanquished movies – the war is over.

SEMI-FINALS 22nd April

The final (fantastic?) four battle it out. There’s no play-off for third place in this battle, so it’s do or die!

THE FINAL 23rd April

Who will be crowned the mightiest Super-Movie of them all? Today, you’ll decide!
