Welcome to Screen Rant’s “Geek Picks,” where we collect the finest movie-related geekery from around the web for you. It’s that time of year again when all Star Wars fans geek out over the calendar date of May the 4th. Scour the internet and you’ll find deals, toys, apparel, and general Star Wars geekery in abundance. The fourth of May 2012 also marks the release date of Marvel’s The Avengers in US theaters, so we’ll begin our geek journey with some Avenger-related links for all you Marvel zombies out there. It’s a special “May The 4th” edition of SR’s Geek Picks!
