They call him the Winter Soldier. He reminds me more of fire, though.

Let’s turn on the juice and see what shakes loose
I don’t remember Beetlejuice looking quite so … dashing? Brooding? But I’m not complaining.

Are you ready for the Winter Soldier? Tomorrow, you can see Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in theaters!
Eight films. Sixty-four questions. One night.
Thursday, April 3rd
One night only.
Thursday, April 3rd at select Geeks Who Drink venues.
Talk some smack, find some teammates and dive through the wormhole to our Facebook event page.
Have you answered to the nickname Mewling Quim?
Do you keep a spare Cosmic Cube for guests?
Is there a giant poster of Tom Hiddleston somewhere in your bedroom?
Well, True Believers, this event is for you! On Thursday, April 3rd, Geeks Who Drink will bring you a pub quiz that covers the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe and the comics that have informed it. We’re calling it ASSEMBLE: AN AVENGERS QUIZ. Fire up JARVIS, grab your Blu-Rays and dust off the longboxes… it’s time to prove that you’re a member of the Merry Marvel Movie Quizzing Society.
Geeks Who Drink rules limit teams to a six player max, so make sure you’ve recruited well. We charge a $5 admission fee for each player, and the more players, the bigger the pot. Prizes are usually expected to be in the hundreds of dollars (AKA, a Tony Stark restaurant tip).
The bulk of the quiz will cover each film in the MCU: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World. We’ll also some comics-only material, so consider bringing along a friend who can tell the difference between a Kree and a Skrull. There may be an Ant-Man-sized portion of material from the One-Shot short films or the Agents of SHIELD TV series.
We can’t guarantee a Stan Lee cameo but we can guarantee that our quiz will have you pumped and primed for the midnight shows of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Plus, make sure you dig out your best t-shirts, costumes, and armor, because our themed events are like a mini-convention… except cheaper, funnier, and with beer.
