March Madness

HPN Presents: MCU Tournament

(updated April 25nd, 2018 11:10AM CST with the final bracket, details below.)

March Madness is almost over with, but this is a perfect time for us at the HPN to throw our own tournament the only way we know how: pitting great movies against each other and letting our listeners do the dirty work for us!

The Marvel Cinematic Universe will release its 19th film on April 26th, the heavily anticipated Infinity War. We have all waited 10 long years to see this film and have sat through 18 different Marvel showings, some better than others. To celebrate our dedication and fandom, join us in picking what you think is the BEST MCU FILM YET.

The bracket was put together using aggregate sites Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB, and MetaCritic to determine tournament seeds.

Download and fill out your copy below. Don’t forget to follow our social media to vote online and get daily updates on winners! Championship winner announced on April 25th! Will you have a perfect bracket?

IT’S OVER! The MCU Tournament has come to an end. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who participated! Seriously, if you even voted a single time, thank you! Check out the final bracket below and you can still snag a blank one to create your own for fun.

We had some very close match-ups, specifically Captain America: Civil War beating out both Marvel’s Avengers and Doctor Strange by just a single vote and Avengers: Age of Ultron beating out Spider-Man: Homecoming by just two. Of course, some films crushed the competition, like Iron Man getting over 89% of the vote when up against its sequel.

Haven’t participated yet? Want a clean bracket? Download the Round 4 bracket below or the completely clean bracket at the bottom and keep on voting. Voting happens on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. So keep an eye on those accounts and may the best MCU movie win.
