It is a glorious day for sci-fi geeks arcoss the globe as not only is it Star Wars Day with it being May 4th, as in "May the 4th be with you," but the premier of The Avengers movie.

Comic book fans everywhere are lining up to see Thor, Ironman, The Hulk, Captain America, and the rest of the Avengers, and so are the San Antonio Spurs.

Tony Parker, Tiago Splitter, Tim Duncan, Cory Joseph, Danny Green, Matt Bonner, Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw and Patty Mills attended the premier of The Avengers last night and were surrounded by fans of the comic book series dressed as their favorite Avenger.

Such a shame not one of the players also got dressed up in an Avenger costume. How funny (or nerdy) would that have been?
