We have one round behind us and many still to go. 16 competitors rose up to make it to the second round. We have a strong list of sentimental favorites, ready to battle it out for the chance to live another day.
It’s not surprising, given the theme of this year’s battle, that there are some heartbreakers here. Well, heartbreakers for me and the other planners of the bracket. Alas, it’s all “spoilers” for River Song despite the fact that Black Widow already has her swan song movie scheduled for release. Donny was clearly out of his element against Coach. And, Littlefoot’s mom had but a moment before being SOUNDLY trounced by Mufasa.
There was only one close call in the early matchups (Maude Flanders coming in from behind to sweep the victory away from Charlotte), but I suspect it will get harder to make the call as we get deeper. Here is where we stand as we roll over into the second round:
Ned Stark vs. Boromir – NED STARK
“Coach” from Cheers vs. Donny from The Big Lebowski – “COACH”
Maximus from Gladiator vs. Yondu from Guardians of the Galaxy – YONDU
Seymour from Futurama vs. Old Yeller – OLD YELLER
Lennie from Of Mice and Men vs. Beth from Little Women – LENNIE
Goose from Top Gun vs. Apollo Creed – GOOSE
Wash from Firefly vs. Quint from Jaws – WASH
The Iron Giants vs. K-2SO – THE IRON GIANT
King Kong from King Kong vs. Bing Bong from Inside Out – KING KONG
Black Widow from The Avengers vs. River Song from Dr. Who – BLACK WIDOW
Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web vs. Maude Flanders from The Simpsons - MAUDE FLANDERS
Mufasa vs. Littlefoot’s Mom – MUFASA
Snape from Harry Potter vs. Hodor from Game of Thrones – SNAPE
Barb from Stranger Things vs. Li’l Sebastian from Parks and Rec – BARB
Bubba from Forrest Gump vs. Wilson from Cast Away – BUBBA
Jack from Titanic vs. Matthew from Downton Abbey – JACK
