MTV Movie Brawl 2013: There Will Be Popcorn

MTV Movie Brawl, the annual battle royale of the year's biggest blockbusters, is back, and the combatants of 2013 look fiercer than ever. Some of film's most popular franchises will go head-to-head to see which will come out victorious in reader-voted polls.

Will Katniss get some redemption with "Catching Fire" after last year's defeat? Can "Iron Man 3" take down the "Man of Steel"? Can either of the new YA offerings, "Beautiful Creatures" or "The Mortal Instruments," fill the gap left by "The Twilight Saga"?
