The MTV Movie Awards nominees in the Best Fight category cover a wide range of fisticuffs, from the shootout in “Django Unchained” to the train-hopping brawl in “Skyfall.” All five nominees are worthy of praise, and all are deserving entrants into the category.
But two entries in the category managed to up the ante for fight scenes in two very different ways. This being Splash Page, of course we’re talking about Batman vs. Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises” and the Avengers vs. Loki and the Chitauri in “Marvel’s the Avengers.” The former fight was up-close and personal as two physical powerhouses clashed, leaving one of them utterly broken. The latter was quite possibly the most epic all-out war ever captured in a superhero film.
If you need a reminder of just how intense both of these throw downs were, check out the videos below. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite and tune in to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Sunday April 14th at 9 p.m.
