Do you ever find yourself thinking that those big-budget geeky  movies you like just make too much sense? Yeah, OK, we get flying cars and giant battles and spaceships and all that. But where are the odd religion references? The out-of-left-field sexual innuendos? The David Lynchian surrealness?

Thank you, bootleg movie subtitles. Even when the words you’re trying to translate are literally on the screen, you still provide us with the utmost in mistranslated hilarity. Now that’s dedication.

Let’s start with the most infamous movie mistranslation, the one that inexplicably substituted the Jedi Council for the Presbyterian Church and gifted the world with at eternal piece of internet vernacular. Iiiiiit’s…

ultron extended

If you’ve been watching Agents Of SHIELD, then you are definitely worthy. That’s where this extended Avengers: Age Of Ultron clip made it’s debut last night. Seriously, if you haven’t watched SHIELD yet (or if you stopped watching), now would be a great time to get on board.

If you missed it, don’t worry. The full Ultron “Pinocchio” scene that was touched on in the original trailer can be viewed after the break…

The first Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer leaked earlier today and was quickly pulled. Apparently, that prompted Marvel to say “f*ck it” and release the real deal. If you haven’t seen the high-res version head after the break post haste.

UPDATE: Marvel’s response to the leak earlier today was “priceless” as one of our Facebook commenters put it. You can see that after the break as well.

Calm down and don’t fret because The Wiivengers are here to save the day. YouTuber James Farr has created a version of The Avengers starring heroes from the Nintendo universe. Link is a great Captain America (I want to see that cosplayed!), Pikachu is Thor, Mario is Iron Man – you get the idea. They have to stop Loki from ruining everything, and the animation is cute and fun.

Watch the mash-up after the break.

If you come away from Guardians Of The Galaxy thinking that an Avengers crossover would be awesome, you should know that your dreams are likely to come true.

Speaking with Yahoo UK, director James Gunn and cast members from the movie revealed that the option is on the table and has been discussed. Gunn explains:

“We talked about all sorts of possibilities [for a crossover], and I kind of know what the basic plan is,” explained Gunn. “That could or could not include a couple of Avengers and a couple of Guardians meeting up, or all of the Avengers and all of the Guardians. But, we do inhabit the same universe and they’re pretty big personalities that are likely to, at some point or another, run into each other.”

So there you have it. If Guardians is successful (and you know that it will be) it seems like there is no way Marvel will pass on an Avengers crossover of some sort.

Check out the complete interview after the break…

lego helicarrier 1

The helicarrier from The Avengers is made to be built from LEGO bricks, and LEGO Ideas (formerly Cuusoo) user ysomt came up with a design that uses 22,694 of them. Isn’t it a thing of beauty? He reviewed stills from the film and did his best to make the helicarrier screen accurate and get the proportions just right. It measures 85.4 by 45.3 inches so you’d need to clear a big space to build and display it. If the project receives 10,000 votes, this beast of a helicarrier could become an actual product on store shelves.

Vote to make the LEGO helicarrier a reality at LEGO Ideas.

See more of the impressive build after the break.

Oh my glob! What if the characters from Adventure Time transformed into Marvel’s Avengers? Comic Book Resources featured the mash-up in their latest edition of “The Line it is Drawn,” and you know what? It was simply meant to be. You’ll find Jake as Thor, Jack hanging out with Thor, LSP as Captain Marvel, and more. I’d like to see all of these drawings animated!

superhero rockstars 1

It stands to reason that superheroes could be talented musicians. They have all kinds of extraordinary skills, and maybe their enhancements would make them better at playing instruments. Artist Andrés Moncayo imagines such a world and has drawn members of the Avengers and Justice League as rock stars. The combination of music and superheroes works exceptionally well.
