Geek Links of the Week

With Captain America 2 coming out in a couple of weeks and Spider-Man 2 (2?) due in May, let’s take a look at the unmade movie history of Marvel Comics. [io9]

It’s not just console wars now. There’s an engine war going on. Crytek is fighting back against the deals for Unreal Engine 4 and Unity 5 with a better deal for CryEngine. [CryEngine]

And there appears to be a game API war brewing. AMD has Mantle. Microsoft was pitching the next DirectX at GDC. And the show had NVIDIA, AMD and Intel trumpeting the merits of OpenGL. [NVIDIA]

David Fincher has only one actor in mind for his and Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic: Christian Bale. He’s even threatening to walk if Sony Pictures doesn’t let him have Bale. [The Wrap]

In news that will surprise absolutely no one, EA will be publishing Titanfall 2 and it won’t be a Microsoft exclusive. [GameSpot]
