Nickelodeon ‘do an Avengers’ and plan a movie featuring all of their biggest characters

There’s nothing that can spark nostalgia quite like the endless list of brilliant 90s cartoons on Nickelodeon. There’s a channel called The Splat dedicated to showing the likes of Ren & Stimpy, Hey Arnold! & Doug, but things have just been taken to the next level.

According to Deadline (via Squareyed), Paramount and Nickelodeon are moving forward with a team-up movie involving the best-loved characters to be directed by Napoleon Dynamite‘s Jared Hess.

NickToons promises to have the vibe of that scene in The Avengers when The Hulk arrives to complete the line-up, except this supergroup will more likely feature characters like Nigel Thornberry, the Rugrats and Spongebob.

Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh! RealMonsters, and The Angry Beaversare all expected to feature, but Nickelodeon has a huge character library spanning 25 years to pick from so expect at least cameos from more. There’s endless possibilities here people.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
