For the last few years, all of the talk surrounding Marvel’s movie universe has focused on the upcoming team-up extravaganza “The Avengers,” but what happens after Earth’s Mightiest Heroes make their big-screen debut? We know about “Iron Man 3” and the “Thor” sequel in 2013, but now Disney has staked their claim on two more Marvel movie dates in 2014.

According to Slash Film, Marvel’s mothership has set aside May 16 and June 27 of 2014 for a pair of upcoming, unidentified films from their growing comic book universe. The company has also tagged May 30 as the release date for a new film from Pixar.

So, what Marvel films could they be planning for those two dates? It’s a good bet that one of them is the sequel to “Captain America: The First Avenger,” but the other is significantly less certain. Could it be Edward Wright and Joe Cornish’s “Ant-Man” or the “Doctor Strange” movie that was making the rumor rounds lately?

There’s also a chance that Marvel will want to revisit the Hulk character for another film after “Avengers” once Mark Ruffalo has had a chance to establish himself as the new face of the character’s alter ego, Bruce Banner. Beyond that, there’s also reason to believe other “Avengers” members like Black Widow and Hawkeye, who were deprived of standalone movies, might get their chance if the characters win audiences over next year.

Off the “Avengers” path, there’s also a chance that the long in-development “Runaways” film could finally see the light of day in 2014, offering audiences a new, teenage set of superheroes.

As for that Pixar film, the new release date is the second mystery film from the studio scheduled for the next few years. The May 30 mystery movie will be preceded by a November 27, 2013, film currently on the books but as-yet-unidentified.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”

Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”

But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.
