“Ant-Man” to begin shooting this year?

The success of “The Avengers” seems to have resulted in an increase in talk surrounding “Ant-Man” lately. First Kevin Feige came out and said the film is “closer than it’s ever been” to being made, and then director Edgar Wright tweeted a cryptic photo implying an “Ant-Man” movie would be coming soon. Apparently all this teasing will come to fruition soon, though, because Wright seems to think the Marvel movie could go in front of the camera within the year.

In an interview with Empire on the magazine’s podcast, Wright said that things are coming to a head on “Ant-Man” discussions.

“Things are happening, and other things are happening on other things as well. There’s some interesting plates spinning and I ideally hope I’ll be shooting this year,” he said.

So does that mean “Ant-Man” could be “Untitled Marvel Movie #1” that is due in theaters on May 16, 2014? We’ll just have to wait to find out. Until then, Wright would like everyone to stop complaining about how long it’s taking for the movie to hit the big screen.

“I get kind of superstitious because I don’t think anybody reading magazines and reading websites and stuff quite understands how hard it is to make a film and how long it takes, and because film websites update like hourly, people are like, ‘What’s the fucking hold up? Why aren’t you making ‘Ant-Man’? Just make it! Why isn’t it coming out tomorrow?'” he laughed. “But every film that I’ve made has taken like three years — each one. It’s been three years between movies. I would love for that gap to be shorter, but it’s almost like a holding pad. It’s like there are planes in the air and you have to figure out which one’s going to land before they all crash like ‘Die Hard 2.'”

Wright is also working on “The World’s End,” so it remains to be seen whether he’ll do that or “Ant-Man” first. Our guess is that he’ll film the final movie in his Blood and Ice Cream trilogy first (especially since he’s said it starts shooting in September), and then head over to the Marvel flick. After all, that project’s been gestating for years, so what are a few more months?

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.
