Two mystery Marvel films and a new Pixar movie planned for 2014

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.

Which Marvel and Pixar movies do you think will premiere on those dates? Chime in below or on Facebook or Twitter.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

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.
