“Ant-Man” officially announced with a 2015 release date

It’s official: “Ant-Man” is getting made, and it’s coming out November 6, 2015.

That means that “Ant-Man” will be the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase 3. In all likelihood, it probably also means we can expect to see whoever gets cast as Ant-Man make a cameo appearance in “The Avengers 2,” which is due out on May 1, 2015.

Disney announced this exciting news and a whole bunch more in a press release earlier this morning. It included some updates to their other upcoming Marvel movies, so take note. First off, both “Iron Man 3” and “Thor: The Dark World” will be released in 3D, though neither were shot in the format. Also, “Captain America 2” is also officially called “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” As neither “Captain America” nor “Guardians of the Galaxy” have started shooting yet, don’t consider this news to mean that neither of those will appear in 3D either.

This is pretty exciting news for Edgar Wright fans. He’s currently hard at work shooting “The World’s End,” but it has long been speculated that he could move on to “Ant-Man” after he wrapped that movie. Though Marvel seemed to support this new project for a while, the green light seemed to hinge upon the fan response to the sizzle reel he screened at San Diego Comic-Con. We still haven’t seen it yet (and are bitter about it) but apparently it was good enough that Marvel wanted “Ant-Man” on their line-up.

With that movie set in place, it will be interesting to see what other films populate Phase 3. If there are only four movies total until “The Avengers 3,” will Marvel opt to introduce more new characters or keep bringing back Iron Man, Thor and Captain America for more? And will we ever get a “Hulk” standalone movie? Hopefully we’ll get some answers over the next year or so.

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 FTW on Brockmire

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.

It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:
