Nintendo Characters + The Avengers = The WiiVengers!
As far as geek movie parodies go this has got to be one of our favourites, as it manages to combine two sets of characters in what may be the ultimate fan parody.

The signs are everywhere. Two of last year’s biggest movies, The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers, were comic book movies. Disney’s latest CGI film, Wreck-It Ralph, had cameos from Q-Bert, Bowser and Zangeif....
