Latest ‘Avengers’ set photos reveal a mysterious object in the city street

Latest ‘Avengers’ set photos reveal a mysterious object in the city street (photo)

Another day, another potentially spoiler-filled peek at the Cleveland set of “The Avengers,” Joss Whedon’s upcoming team-up film that has Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and other Marvel heroes uniting to defeat, well… we’re not quite sure yet.

However, the latest unauthorized photos to emerge from the production might offer yet another clue about the foe Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are teaming up to thwart.

In case you didn’t guess by now, what follows from this point could be a minefield of spoilers — so tread carefully, and remember: we warned you!

Are we good to go? Okay then…

Posted over at Superherohype, the latest photos from the “Avengers” set offer a nice, clear view of the mysterious object that was previously seen in blurry images and sparked some discussion. From what we can tell, the object could be a craft of some sort, and certainly doesn’t seem to be of Earthly origin.

Nevertheless, while some sites are declaring it further proof that one of the alien races of the Marvel Universe — namely the shape-shifting Skrulls or militaristic Kree — will invade Earth and force the aforementioned heroes to unite, there’s reason to believe that might not be entirely accurate.

Looking at the object, there are clearly some similarities between it and the type of things we saw in Thor’s homeworld, Asgard. In fact, it’s the sort of thing that looks like it could’ve been right at home in Odin’s throne room. The fact that we saw Tom Hiddleston on set as Loki yesterday only seems to support the Asgardian connection for the object.

While we’re not likely to have a definite answer until “The Avengers” explodes into theaters next year, at the rate we’re seeing set photos from the film, we might not actually have to wait that long. Any guesses as to what tomorrow’s batch of set photos will bring?

What do you think the object is? Chime in below or on Facebook or Twitter.

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.

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

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

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.
