As we draw closer to the opening of the upcoming Marvel blockbuster “Avengers: Infinity War”, the Entertainment Weekly magazine has unveiled “15” different covers that showcase the colorful cast of super-heroes and their insidious foe. I’ve culled them all together for your enjoyment in this post so just scroll on through and enjoy them all. I’ve held back from captioning each of the covers in this post since I am pretty sure you like-minded fans know who each of these characters are. If you don’t then you sure do have some catching up to do. I’ll close up with some light editorial and also repeat the premise and show some casting. Let’s go.

Hey there my friends, I just wanted to take a moment and share with you the recently released covers for the Summer Previews edition of “Entertainment Weekly” because it showcases the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” film. With this showcase we get four different covers and two of them are Team Cap while the other ones are Team Iron Man. From them you get a good idea of whose side each hero is on and of course we will have more characters in the film to root for. Check them out below.

As we get to the close of this media year of 2015, I’m happy to share the recently released image of actor Benedict Cumberbatch as “Doctor Strange” who we are seeing in costume for the very first time thanks to the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine. Check it out.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say that I like the look quite a bit as he has the necessary side gray hair and the amulet. Perhaps his collar could have been a little higher but I will not complain about it. I was also rather happy with the casting of Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange since he has “that look” of the character. I also have a lot of hopes for this film and that its able to pull off the special effects that bring to mind the classic Steve Ditko era stuff. There is a full feature in the issue as well but I only had the cover image to show you here in this posting. I need to snag a copy when I hit the shops as it also features looks inside “Batman V Superman” and (shudder) “Ghostbusters”. This magazine has been really good at showcasing some of these upcoming super-hero films when they are not talking about Kardashian this or Housewives that and have even given us some first glimpses at “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Captain America: Civil War” over the last few months. What do you folks think of the visual here and if you have already read the article let me know in the comments if it was all to your liking. Until next time.

A couple of days ago the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly was making the rounds and showcasing the principle characters of the upcoming film “Captain America: Civil War”. In addition to the two stalwart Marvel heroes we get a proper look at a long anticipated character as well and I’ve snagged an image of said cover for your visual enjoyment. Check it out.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: The folks who love to scream about absolutely everything are already balking about a few things and the first is how Black Panther is behind both Cap and Iron Man as opposed to standing right in the middle of them and I’ve had to chastise some for making a mountain out of a molehill in this. First of all he looks fantastic and I am glad to see Black Panther being introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in what I believe will be one of the most exciting films in the whole Marvel Studios battery of films. Others are annoyed that it references Panther as having claws so sharp that even the Real Housewives would be envious but lets remember who mostly reads this kind of magazine. The people that read about and care for whatever the Kardashians are keeping up to and the Real Housewives of God only knows where are its main demographic. Believe me I am happy that the nerd pursuits are attended to for our own readers and myself but outside of that I am okay with the inane reference. That being said the “meow” was just stupid but I will leave it alone. Black Panther will be an active part of the new Captain America film and be the main man in a film of his own come 2018 unless I am mistaken, As expected the magazine features a larger article but I only have the cover to share with you and suggest you pick up a copy on the stands while you can. What do you think of the visual and seeing Black Panther a little better? Let me know in the comments and if you have already read the full feature please let us know if its worth picking up as opposed to just reading online somewhere.

I’ve been a casual reader of Entertainment Weekly for the last couple of years and love how they are often giving us a first glimpse at some of the superhero films that I have been speaking to in our “On Screen” postings. With that being said, the other day we saw a first look at the 2016 film “X-Men: Apocalypse” and I wanted to share that cover visual with you. Take a look.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Just in case you readers are not too up on who Apocalypse even is, well he is the big bad in the world of the X-Men and a whole lot more dangerous than Magneto ever could possibly be. He is from many thousands of years ago and in some sense is thought of to be the first mutant. In this film he is played by Oscar Isaac and the outfit looks alright I guess. I think I was expecting a bigger more threatening look like we got in the pages of “X-Factor” where he first appeared. That’s Michael Fassbender to his left aka Magneto and the girl is Olivia Munn who will be portraying Betsy Braddock or Psylocke. So glad she is finally appearing in these X-Men films since she is a character I liked. I expect this film will find a lot of young ladies doing cosplay of her come the 2016 NY Comic Con. It will be a nice change of pace over all the Harley Quinns out there. So what do you think my fine readers? Are you liking the way this looks at all? There is no trailer yet but I am sure that will come soon enough. We have a bit of time before this one is released and it looks like 2016 will be a great year for superhero films. On a side note I will try to keep stuff like this coming when they give us a first reveal if you don’t mind me doing so. Since its film related they will be relegated to the “On Screen” section of the website and keep company to the film trailers and release announcements. Until next time I bid you adieu.
