Here are this week's top ten best "Geek Bits."
10. Space 1970 has a post on the goofy, but fun, CAPTAIN AMERICA (1979) film
These movies represent a unique frustration for me. Captain America has always been my favorite superhero, and I realize how lucky Cap fans were to see these movies, but... it stings that they're not very good. Clearly they were less inspired by the comics and more by the then-contemporary Six Million Dollar Man series, including giving Cap an Oscar Goldman-like boss and a unique sound effect when he used his super-strength.
9. Christian Bale Confirms He Won't Be Batman In The Justice League Film http://buff.ly/19TuzPm (via Bleeding Cool)
We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy.
It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.
8. Doctor Who-Themed Engagement Photos http://buff.ly/17VzazS (via Nerdist)

6. Vulcan Denied As A Name for Pluto’s Moon (via ScienceFiction.com)
There was a poll by International Astronomical Union to name one of Pluto's moons "Vulcan" and Star Trek fans flooded the poll to name it. But, "the International Astronomical Union didn't approve this name because apparently, there is another celestial body that has the name Vulcan." It's pretty ridiculous, but head to the site for the convoluted explanation.
5. Letters To Superheroes: Issue #5 - Dear Batman by Alfred via (The Non-Review)
4. The Best of Viggo Mortensen by (Never Mind Pop FIlm)
3. THE COMIC BOOK LOVERS GUIDE TO SMARTPHONE APPS (via Comic Book and Movie Reviews)
2. Michael Jackson almost starred in a Doctor Who movie(via io9)
A book about thwarted attempts to make a Doctor Who feature film reveals that Paramount wanted the title role to go to Michael Jackson.1. Replacing Guns with "Thumbs-Up" (via Vicious Imagery)
Charles Norton, author of Doctor Who at the Movies, discovered that the King of Pop was the studio’s first choice when it agreed in 1988 to back a film by Daltenreys, the British production company that held the film rights.
