“The Avengers” clip shows Thor and Captain America battling Loki’s army


Posted by on

Stop, it’s hammer time. Or Mjolnir time, to be exact. Yes, it’s a new day, and that means we have a new clip from the upcoming Marvel flick “The Avengers.”

This one is just a snippet of the epic battle scene we’ve seen teased in previous behind-the-scenes images, production stills and trailers. Thor and Captain America can be seen facing off against Loki’s army when the good Captain gets hit with a laser from one of the aliens’ guns. While he is injured, Thor takes out the rest of their enemies and then helps Captain America stand up. Teamwork!

Judging by the amount of footage we’ve seen surrounding this battle, it seems like it’s going to be a big set piece in the flick. Yesterday’s clip featuring Tony Stark and Loki seemed to be a precursor to the fight, and much of the fighting taking place in the trailers released seems to take place during this sequence as well. That works for us, because the Marvel movies don’t tend to be known for their action scenes.

For those of you desperate for a look at Loki’s army, this clip gives you a pretty clear look. Thank goodness we all don’t have to rely on grainy screenshots and toy models to convince ourselves that these aliens are not Skrulls.

Initial reactions to the film from those who were lucky enough to watch it at its premiere were overwhelmingly positive, so it seems safe to say that all this set up will pay off. However, it is beginning to feel like we’ve seen just about everything in the movie already. Hopefully Marvel doesn’t plan to release a new clip or TV spot every day until “The Avengers” hits theaters.

Directed by Joss Whedon, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson. It is due in theaters on May 4.

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.)

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.
