Curious about what “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will look like? Well you’re in luck, because the folks over at Geek Zenith have uncovered some concept art of what Marvel is planning for the upcoming MCU: Phase Two movies.

The one image from the “Captain America” sequel shows Captain America fighting the titular Winter Soldier. There aren’t many spoilers here, but it is noteworthy that this fight is taking place on a road. It seems like the Avengers don’t have to hide anymore after the events of “The Avengers.”

The other three images all come from “Guardians of the Galaxy” and show a very different aesthetic from anything we’ve seen in the MCU before. The outer space world looks gorgeous, and the one image of the movie’s characters looks like it could have some straight out of “Star Wars.” Hopefully that ends up being a good thing, and “Guardians” doesn’t feel out of place in the Marvel film world.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” stars Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Toby Jones, Maximiliano Hernandez, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Hayley Atwell, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo and Emily VanCamp. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, it’s due in theaters on April 4, 2014.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is due out on August 1, 2014. It’s directed by James Gunn and will star Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer and Chris Pratt as Star-Lord. The roles of Groot, Rocket Raccoon and Gamora have not been cast.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney To Host Spirit Awards

The Spirit Awards Air February 25 LIVE on IFC.

Posted by on

The 2017 Spirit Awards have finally found their frontmen: Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. And it’s no wonder. Just marvel in their splendid chemistry back when they appeared on Comedy Bang! Bang!:

The pair are prolific within the performing arts community: television (Kroll in The League and The Kroll Show, Mulaney as a writer of IFC’s own Documentary Now!), theater (including Broadway’s current Oh Hello Show), and stand-up comedy. In fact, it’s entirely possible that emceeing an awards show is one of the few remaining line items on their professional bucket lists.

It’s important to caveat this announcement, however. Unlike the bigger and more ubiquitously known awards shows, the Spirit Awards are not, well…boring. (We’re talking to you, Oscar.)

They’re funny. They’re honest. They have quality to match the red-carpet fanfare. And that’s alarmingly special. Last year’s show included some legitimately historic moments, like when transgender actress Mya Taylor won best supporting female, or Kate McKinnon’s hilarious and timely parody of Carol. See more highlights here to get the flavor of the Spirit Awards and read all about Film Independent to dig deeper.

The 2017 Spirit Awards air live February 25 at 5P ET exclusively on IFC.
