The Avengers hit the cover of Entertainment Weekly

Sep. 29, 2011by: Mike Sampson

I'm a little bummed that I have a pretty great report from the Albuquerque set of THE AVENGERS that I'm not allowed to share with you at this time. Entertainment Weekly is not beholden to the same embargo I am, apparently, and tomorrow sees the release of the upcoming issue with the cast of the film on the cover and all kinds of news, interviews and photos on the inside.

Right now all we have is a look at the cover, which is not all that impressive. [UPDATE - Entertainment Weekly has since added some shots from the set, which are included below.] Had they gotten the cast all in one room for the photo, I'd be digging it, but this just looks like a bad Photoshop (Mark Ruffalo especially looks out of place down there).

I was hoping that the sudden influx of AVENGERS news might mean that a trailer for the film would be attached to REAL STEEL but Disney says that's not happening (though we should be getting a bunch of new pics soon). Take a look at the cover below and click to check out some excerpts from the article.

Thor looks straight out of an 80s hair band on that cover.

Not too fond of the cover, but it's awesome to see Jeremy Renner looking badass. Dig the costume.

@polarboy:
The worst part of it is that you were almost right when saying "looks like it could end up on a pirated dvd cover". With the god awful movie posters and dvd/blu-ray covers we get nowadays I wouldn't be surprise if they came up with something almost, just almost, as bad as this for the actual dvd/blu-ray cover.

Yeah, the photoshop jam up is terrible but the read is damn good for what will be an epic film. Good to wet the whistle but I know future covers will look much better. Empire always delivers a great cover before most big releases.

There's a million ways to make this cover look insanely epic, considering you have 6 badass comic book characters to play with, yet they managed to avoid every ounce of creativity to come up with this picture that looks like it could end up on a pirated DVD cover. Good job, now maybe you can hire a real graphic designer instead of asking your 4-year old nephew to multitask between kindergarten and this?

Surprisingly crappy cover. Looks like a real rush-job. But the rest looks great. Cap's forearm thingies, is that Stark-tech?

I can't help but think of Zoolander when I see Ruffalo with that pose..

Other than that I'm still still psyched for this. This really is the silver age of superhero movies!

I'm all for this movie. Really, I am. I would miss a birthday, funeral, or a wedding for this but this hack Photoshop job is ridiculous. Someone needs to be slapped with some leather gloves!

P.S. - Anybody else getting a subtle reminder about X-Men: First Class's lame photo a while back?

Mark Ruffalo looks like he's doing a hack Vincent D'onofrio impression.

The set photos are cool though.

Ugh

I'm sorry, but everything from this movie so far has looked really cheesy. I feel like the aesthetic of Marvel's films has been a bit cornier - and it works most of the time - but I feel like bringing all these superheroes together is gonna be overboard. I'll reserve judgment though.

Are the cover to these mags ever any better anyways?
It always look like a 7 year old did this using his dad's iphone...
How much an hour does the person who made this make? Because I'll take the job and charge 5$/hrs less.

Poor Aim

Looks like Black Widow is going to shoot Iron Man and Thor. Excellent editing. RDJ looks like that face was photoshopped on from a mug shot. Terrible lighting on Renner. Yikes.

DAMN! I didn't think it was humanly possible to make this group of people look unappealing. If that's what EW was aiming for... CONGRATS! BTW, WTF is with Mark Ruffalo's expression. Is he constipated? Did someone steal his wallet?

EW...if you can't get them all together at once for a real cover shot, don't do it at all. The Photoshopping here is AWFUL!

Horrible Cover!

Renner and Ruffalo make me shudder and why does Cap look so sad?

Glad a magazine cover isn't saying anything about the movie...
