With anticipation for the April 27 opening of Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” growing by the day, Empire Magazine
has revealed six different “Infinity War” covers for their newest issue.
Five of the covers feature different groupings of characters from the film, including Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and Shuri; Bucky, Black Panther, War Machine, and Nebula; Doctor Strange, Drax, Okoye, and Scarlet Witch; Groot, Rocket, Thor, Vision, and Mantis; and Gamora, Hulk, Star-Lord, Spider-Man, and Falcon. As for the sixth cover, it features the threat all these Super Heroes must face, Thanos himself!
Let’s start with the six covers: first up it’s Iron Man and Captain America — the two Earth-bound cornerstones of the Avengers — flanked by Black Panther stand-out Shuri, and Scarlett Johansson’s deadly Black Widow.
Next is Doctor Strange (sporting the Eye of Agamotto, aka the Time Stone), accompanied by Scarlet Witch, Drax, and Okoye.
Fresh from smashing box office records, Black Panther is on our third cover, shoulder-to-shoulder with Nebula, Bucky (sporting a fetching new arm), and War Machine.
The fourth cover is on the cosmic end of the MCU spectrum — three members of the Guardians (Rocket, Mantis, and Teen Groot), joined by a now one-eyed Thor, and with Vision hovering nearby.
Star Lord and Gamora are on the fifth cover, joined by Spider-Man in his new Iron Spider armor, Hulk, and Falcon.
On the final cover, there’s only room for one Mad Titan. Yes, Thanos has his very own design, flexing his bicep and showing off that shiny gold Infinity Gauntlet bearing two of the Infinity Stones. Four to go.
The new issue of Empire
will hit stands on Thursday, March 22, and includes on-set conversations — conducted in Edinburgh and New York — with cast members, including Chris Evans, Tom Holland, and Robert Downey Jr., along with a new Chris Pratt interview. More exclusive images from “Avengers: Infinity War” will be revealed, plus an advance look at Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and the Wasp.” The issue also comes with an extra magazine focused on the first ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
