Avengers in all their 8 bit glory

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 shirts, lamps, and swimwear; ideas for a Justice League film; geeky press-on nails; and Robert Downey Jr dressed in Russian military gear. All that and more on this edition of SR's Geek Picks!

To kick things off, Culture Warrior over at FilmSchoolRejects wrote up a nice piece about what I think is the greatest success of The Avengers, getting all those actors/characters/egos/personalities to form a cohesive bond. The FSR staff also gave us some thoughts on things they liked and disliked about the film. Check them out for some interesting Avengery discussions.

Over at his Whedonesque blog, Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon issued a thank you to all of us who spent money at the theater and made The Avengers such a phenomenal success. Your welcome Joss! And if you're really interested in that box office success that Joss thanked you for, THR has 5 hidden reasons for The Avengers box office earnings that you might want to peruse.

With all the Avengers success, Marvel has put the pressure on DC to make an amazing Justice League movieWhatculture has some pretty great ideas for a potential plot, casting and director for the "other" big superhero team. Do you agree with them?
