Marvel unveils upcoming film slate: “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Captain America: Winter Soldier” and more


Posted by on

Marvel Studios went big at Comic-Con this year. Like, really, really big. After sitting out the San Diego-based convention last year, the studio brought everything we’ve hoped they’ve been working on and announced it to much pomp and circumstance, making them easily one of the big winners of the weekend’s festivities.

Let’s quickly run down what was announced: Ben Kingsley will officially be the Mandarin in “Iron Man 3,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” will be released August 1, 2014, Edgar Wright debuted test footage for the still-not-confirmed “Ant-Man,” “Captain America 2” will be called “Captain America: Winter Soldier” (oh the implications there) and “Thor 2” will be “Thor: The Dark World.” Does that scratch your Marvel itch yet?

The “Guardians” and “Ant-Man” news is not surprising, but it is exciting. Not much to go on from those except that it seemed like Marvel was trying to gauge the audience’s take on “Ant-Man” to determine how well the film will do in theaters. That’s not always the best route to take as Wright learned with “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” but from what we hear the crowd went nuts for their first conceptual look at Hank Pym.

Then there are the new titles for the “Captain America” and “Thor” sequels. “Winter Soldier” almost completely confirms that Sebastian Stan’s Bucky will be back in the present day, albeit in a villainous role instead of a sidekick one. We already knew “Thor 2” would travel into the worlds beyond Earth and Asgard, but the subtitle “The Dark World” only confirms it.

Lastly, that Mandarin news. Shane Black and his “Iron Man 3” crew nearly had us convinced that the Mandarin wouldn’t have a role to play in the upcoming sequel, but footage screened during Marvel’s Hall H panel definitively proved otherwise. Kingsley will indeed don the nine rings in this upcoming movie, and we couldn’t be more stoked.

Now, when is “The Avengers 2” officially coming out?

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.
