Or it could just be a high tide washing over the island of The Rest of the World Doesn't Care

At Meijer's this weekend, I saw where they had emptied an entire area of the toy section with a big banner reading "MARVEL'S INFINITY WAR COMING SOON!" The action figure line for this movie is going to be insane.

"Man, nobody is really buying magazines anymore, unless they are bored at an airport, what can we do?"

"Hmm, I know, let's create FIFTEEN COVERS for a superhero movie that every nerd will want to buy a copy of each one for?"
 
2018-03-08 02:43:12 PM  
Nice looking covers. I'm really looking forward to this. A bit afraid that it'll be a hot mess with all of the characters, but Marvel's always fun :)
 
2018-03-08 02:43:49 PM  
Meh, the last one I saw was Iron man 2 . I stopped there.
 
2018-03-08 02:43:58 PM  
White Wolf and Mantis would be an interesting pairing.
 
2018-03-08 02:44:20 PM  
That's...not interesting at all.

Apparently, being a "nerd" means buying whatever sci-fi/superhero crap is marketed to you.

Black Panther was great. Thor Ragnorak was a lot of fun. They're nice popcorn flicks

Despite knowing it will make all the money, I can't help but wonder how Disney would react if it completely tanked. Like a huge opening and then nothing, killed by word of mouth.

He was on every cover ― hiding behind a cyan halftone dot on some, and a magenta dot on others.

To all: I'll just leave this here:

(Yeah, yeah, I know, I know, this is based on the comics, not the movie. But they do do movie-themed ones, too, so an Infinity War table should be coming out.)

Also, unless they point out that he's actually on every cover, it's kinda bullshiat that they left Ant-Man out.

Scarlet Witch totally looks like a Ravager standing next to Nebula in her Ravager outfit.

I hope my lawsuit against the Infinity War movie will be as successful as the one I had against "The Never-ending Story."

It is painfully obvious that they photoshopped ScarJo's head onto a stunt person in the costume:

With this many characters, I predict a lot of battle sequences, which marvel does very, very well.

You only have to introduce the bad guy really. theres no need for any other introductions.

World, meet bad guy, good guys, lets work together, 2+ hours of pew pew and jokes. Fin.

Weird, a bunch of us did... And a shiatty slideshow that had ads after every second picture that took up two slides. I mean, my ad blocker blocked the ads, but not the back-to-back blank slides.

But, at least it was an inline slideshow, not as bad as the ones that completely reload the entire page for each slide.

We've secretly replaced Infinity War with 6 episodes of Iron Fist. Let's see what happens.

On my phone there were ads after each cover but it was all one long scrolling page.

But no Hawkeye? I'm cancelling my subscription.

The article says it's his new Bleeding Edge armor with maneuvering thrusters for space combat.

We could call this a concept movie, to see if Marvel can actually pull it off.

I think Ant-Man and the Wasp are only in the sequel.  Evangeline Lilly said that, although she may have been talking about The Wasp only.

Where the hell is the chromium alternate cover?
The holographic cover?
The 15 bagged versions with a different trading card in each?
The glow in the dark version?
If they want to pretend it's the 90s again EW really needs to step up their game.

If I were a web advertiser, those reload-the-page ones would really tick me off, since they're just inflating the views count that I'd have to pay for without getting additional eyeballs in return.

Yeah, their pinball tables are just barely beyond what could actually be done in reality. Have you checked out the VR version of their engine?

There have even been people making cabinet fronts with real flipper buttons and the like that work with this, so you get the feel as well as look of actually being there, playing these in some futuristic arcade. The way the environments change with the table is a nice touch, including characters from the game cavorting around the table while you play.

You forgot in the first battle with the baddies the heroes are clueless and can't work together. Then in the middle they get their come to FSM moment where everything gels. And in the third act the hero's triumph.
