May the Fourth be with you! Crack open an old issue of “Bantha Tracks” for International Star Wars Day! Or it’s new name: AVENGERS DAY!
— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) May 4, 2012
A slew of actors are tweeting about both grand events, including Tom Hiddleston who plays Loki. He asked fans in the USA, Russia, Canada and Indonesia to assemble to theaters to check out the flick. (You might want to listen to him so you don’t get Loki’d.) And “Begin Human’s” Sam Huntington who wrote: “Happy Star Wars day T-Woks!! And remember: if you play with your light sabers too much you’ll get Wookie palms.” Duly noted.
Also in May 4, 2012’s Star Wars Day and “Avengers” themed Twitter-Wood, find out what has Nathan Fillion typing “Oh. My. God.” and which DC Comics superhero Devin Faraci thinks Captain America can take down.
