Elementary school kids don’t understand the legal wranglings that created two different movie Quicksilvers…or why there are so many different Hulks…or what happened in the one Marvel movie their parents didn’t get around to taking them to…or even why Batman can’t join the Marvel universe. But they’re gonna be the Avengers anyway.
And frankly, some of their questions are good ones.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
