“Ant-Man” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” gearing up for production?


Posted by on

Could it be that “Ant-Man” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” are the next two standalone movies that Marvel is making? Two new speculative bits of information seem to confirm that that’s the case.

Bleeding Cool seems to have sources in just the right places, because they have the scoop on both of these projects. First, they learned that a handful of people have recently come into some popular London comic book stores looking for anything and everything related to “Ant-Man.”

“Here’s the thing. No one asks for Ant Man comics,” the site writes. “Not even, I’m told, when Marvel was still publishing Ant Man comics. Each time the individuals have been asked if it’s for the Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish film and they jump back, spooked, asking how they could possibly know…”

Apparently the latest batch of people who came searching were asking for “Ant-Man” comics that had to do with the “echo time locator” from the “old series,” whatever that is. Regardless, it doesn’t seem too unlikely that a British director like Edgar Wright would be doing his research for his upcoming movie in his home city. And he’s teased that “Ant-Man” is close to being ready to film many, many times.

Bleeding Cool has also learned that Marvel has filed trademarks for pretty much everything that could be related to “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

“Marvel Comics have just filed eleven new trademark applications for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY covering everything from jewelery to beverages to furniture to cosmetics,” the site writes. “The applications cover International Classes 3, 14, 16, 20, 24, 29, 30, 32, 35, 41, 42, and also include computer games, fabrics, foods, paper goods, entertainment and internet services, and even retail store services.”

Marvel could just be doing that because of a rumored “Guardians of the Galaxy” comic book relaunch by Brian Michael Bendis, but we highly doubt it. Instead, the studio is likely preparing for the upcoming movie, which will usher in a whole new wave of merchandising. Neither of these two news tidbits guarantee anything, but we’ll bet that we’re going to hear something confirming that these two projects are in development very shortly.

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.
