The Avengers at Comic Con

It’s a good time to be a geek.  I’m not sure how it happened.  In high school, I had to constantly check myself lest at the merest mention of the X-Men I found myself giving an impromptu lecture on the ins and outs of the Summers family tree (which includes clones, time-travel, space pirates and an evil Victorian bio-geneticist, but I digress).  These days, I can show pretty girls my Batman/Superman tattoos and they seem impressed.  The San Diego Comic-Con is a major cultural event.  Frat Boys play Sci-Fi video games and Sorority Girls wear “I Love Geeks” t-shirts (though you’ll forgive me if I doubt their sincerity).

Oh.  And the Movies.  JESUS CHRIST, THE MOVIES!  If you would have told me when I was 15, skipping school and reading the latest issue of Iron Man in the back of Downtown Comics (which was oddly not located downtown) that Robert Downey Jr. would a) not be on drugs and b) star in a 200 million dollar Iron Man summer blockbuster, I would have told you to a) stop doing drugs and b) leave me alone, I’m reading.  Like I said, I don’t know how it happened.  But, Praise the Lord, our time has come.  Looking back, we may view 2012 as the apogee of the Total Geek Domination of Hollywood (though it might also be the Mayan Apocalypse…I wonder if the two are connected…?).

Thus, I give you the Top 10 Films Geeks Can Look Forward to in 2012.  In the great Geek tradition, I will endeavor to make harsh and sweeping judgments about things on which I have very little information.  Enjoy.
