Movie March Madness: Heroes Vs. Villains
Last year, I had a ball creating a movie-themed bracket during the March Madness season. I created something where my readers could vote for who they thought should win in each respected category. This year, I plan to do the same thing, starting tonight and you all will have the opportunity to vote. This year I am doing things a little differently.
Instead of a Movie Badasses bracket, I am going to do a Heroes vs. Villains bracket. Since I have slowly begun to incorporate television into this blog, I will pull from there as well.
Sixteen of the biggest heroes from movies will clash, as well as sixteen heroes from television. On the other side of the war, sixteen of the most vicious villains in all of movies and TV will also clash. By early April, I hope the greatest hero and greatest villain in all of screened entertainment face-off in the ultimate battle of good and evil. The best part is you will be able to decide the outcome. You will be able to vote for each round of each category. I am planning on voting periods to last three or so days. Round One of the bracket will begin tonight (March 20th) and go until March 23rd. Round Two will go from March 24th to March 26. The Sweet Sixteen will go from March 26th to March 29th. The Elite Eight will run from March 29th until March 31st. The Final Four will go from March 31st to April 3rd. And the grand finale will go from the April 4th until April 6th, awarding the champion on April 7th.
HOW DO I VOTE?
Simply send me an email or leave a comment on the comment section below with a list of characters in each section you want to advance. For example, lets say there is Character A in seed 1 and Character B in seed 16, you would list the character you want followed by the seed and which part of the bracket they are in. If you have any questions or concerns about the voting, please let me know. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
