Channing Tatum and Will Arnett in talks to play Superman and Batman in new “LEGO” movie

Channing Tatum is Superman. Will Arnett is Batman. If only this was for an actual superhero movie.

Instead, we’ll have to settle for it being in Warner Bros’s upcoming movie, “LEGO: The Piece of Resistance.” Variety reports that the filmmakers behind the project are looking to these two actors to do voice work. It’s unclear how large a role Batman and Superman will have in the finished product, but still, that’s pretty freaking awesome.

“The Piece of Resistance” was written and is being directed by “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. “Robot Chicken” director Chris McKay is also acting as co-director under them. Though we originally rebelled against the idea of a movie being made based on LEGOs, it seems cooler and cooler the more we hear about it.

“It is the story of basically a young man who doesn’t have a creative bone in his body and has to always build things from the instructions. He’s an ‘instructions worker.’ In the LEGO city, they build buildings, and it turns out in this universe it’s illegal to build apart from the instructions,” Lord said in an interview with MTV News back in March. “So what he finds out is that he’s actually descendant from these like super creative Jedi-type people who are called ‘Master Builders’ and he has been charged with saving the universe from being frozen together by an evil bad guy, so over the course of the movie he has to unlearn all of that lame-o, uncreative stuff and learn how to build without all of the instructions in order to save the universe.”

“Parks and Recreation” star Chris Pratt will voice the main character in the film, and we’re hoping that even more big talents continue to flock to the project. It also looks like some of LEGO’s most popular licensed figures are going to be brought into the film as characters. Who knows, maybe we’ll even get to see some characters from the forthcoming LEGO “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” collections.

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.
