The argumentative sports nerds of Inside the Locker continue their Tournament Edition series. This time, in the run-up to the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the guys settle once and for all (this week) which previous Marvel movie reigns supreme. We whittled it down from the Super 16 to the Spectacular 8 to the Fantastic Four and crowned a champion between the final Gruesome Twosome.
That’s right, it’s time for a super heroic version of our…
Totally Accurate, Desperately Necessary Movie Elimination Tournament!!!
And speaking of impossibly heroic feats, our special guest referee for this tournament is none other than Chris Cox from The Original Gentlemen and Digital Noise. Yeah, we actually got Chris to be on the sports podcast, where are our capes? Chris being one of our resident comic book experts, we were quite comfortable letting him have the final say in each individual match-up.
We are anticipating a fair amount of discussion and debate this week from you, the listener, and we welcome that. There were some surprise upsets and a very intriguing final match.
Let the fireworks commence!
