SR Geek Picks: Marvel Movie Timeline, UK Avengers & More!

Published 2 years ago by , Updated February 26th, 2013 at 7:11 am,

Welcome to Screen Rant’s “Geek Picks,” where we collect the finest movie-related geekery from around the web for you. Today you’ll find Avengers from across the pond; pancakes from a galaxy far, far away; minimalist Miyazakis; and a Doctor Who/Donkey Kong mashup. All that and more on this edition of SR’s Geek Picks!

This story about a Five-year-old Avenger will melt your heart. I want to take him home and raise him to be my little comic-loving geek. Sniff….they grow so fast.

In other Avengers-related news, Robert Downey Jr. will reportedly make $50 million off The Avengers, once box office bonuses and backend compensations are factored in. He’s definitely earned his paycheck, as many people I talk to will see any Marvel film containing Tony Stark, and many will argue there is no Tony Stark without RDJ.

In our meta list of the day, Topless Robot shares 5 games based on movies based on games. The #1 game made me lol as I remembered its terrible initial release. Poor Raul Julia.
