New “The Avengers” photos and featurette assemble for hungry fans

Sure, “Hunger Games” just had the third biggest domestic box office opening weekend in history, and the largest non-summer opening, but that’s so two hours ago. Why keep living in the past when you can start freaking out about the next, most likely records-shattering hit action film, “The Avengers,” with a slew of a new just-released photos?

Written and directed by geek icon Joss Whedon (“Firefly”/”Serenity”, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), the superhero flick features an ensemble cast including Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Tom Hiddleston. Judging from how popular its been, chances are you’ve already seen the Avengers in action courtesy of the trailer, but now you can get a closer look at the characters’ costumes and the actors portraying them.

The photos show off all the principle characters, including Captain America, Thor, Tony Stark, Black Widow, Bruce Banner, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and even the film’s big bad, Loki. In fact, the only things missing from the images are shots of Downey Jr. in the Iron Man armor and Mark Ruffalo all CG’ed up as the Hulk. While we’re still not fully onboard with the changes made to Captain America’s suit since the 2011 movie (still our favorite Marvel flick), the costuming is pretty impressive here – iconic and heroic while still remaining largely believable.

If that wasn’t enough to get you through your Monday, a new featurette about how the Avengers came to be assembled, on and off screen, was just released, with the actors, producers and director Joss Whedon talking about their passion for bringing “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” to the big screen.

Rev Up

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.
