Marvel reveals post-“Avengers” superhero movie line-up, possible mystery projects

Though Marvel has set their sights high with the upcoming ensemble superhero flick “The Avengers,” they are aiming even higher for their movie slate in the years after. This past year has been chock full of Marvel Studios films — “Thor,” “X-Men: First Class,” “Captain America: The First Avenger” — and 2012 promises to be even bigger. With films like “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “The Avengers” to look forward to, Marvel has planned an even bigger line-up for the years after.

Entertainment Weekly (via Comic Book Movie) has the inside scoop on the next five movies in Marvel’s arsenal. The first three aren’t a surprise. “Iron Man 3” has been in development since before “Iron Man 2” hit theaters, and has Shane Black attached to direct. “Thor 2” is expected to begin production in April with Brian Kirk at the helm. And “Ant-Man” continues to be a project that Edgar Wright won’t let die.

But the last two films on the list could be the two mystery movies that Marvel has up their sleeves for May 16 and June 27 of 2014. It turns out that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has been cultivating big screen adaptations of hit superheroes “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Inhumans.”

“Guardians” will likely be an offshoot of a “Thor” film, so it seems fair to assume that there might be a reference or two to the Guardians of the Galaxy in “Thor 2.”

“There’s an opportunity to do a big space epic, which ‘Thor’ sort of hints at, in the cosmic side of the universe,” Feige explained. The vote of confidence for this Marvel storyline probably came from the positive response to “Thor’s” Asgard storyline.

Whether or not Marvel moves forward with “Inhumans” will most likely depend on the success of “The Avengers.” “Inhumans” was another ensemble Marvel comic book series that dates back to the ’60s.

Feige said that if either “Guardians of the Galaxy” or “Inhumans” make it to the big screen, fans can expect them to be “X-Men” and “Avengers”-style ensemble flicks.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
