Marvel fans know well that Spider-Man is getting a nifty costume upgrade, courtesy of Tony Stark, for Avengers: Infinity War. But, based on new magazine covers for Marvel’s upcoming event film, it looks like Iron Man is wearing the multi-legged Iron Spider costume fans know from the comics. Kind of.

On Thursday, Entertainment Weekly unveiled a whopping 15 variant covers for its March 23 issue devoted to Avengers: Infinity War. The covers give a generous glimpse at some of the new costumes, including Captain America’s “Nomad” suit, Black Widow, Nebula, Scarlet Witch, and Thor. Spider-Man (Tom Holland), in his Iron Spider suit, gets a cover all on his own, as does his mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), whose new Iron Man suit is just as crazy freaky and surprisingly spider-like.

In the comics, Tony Stark gave Peter Parker an upgraded suit, nicknamed “Iron Spider,” when Spidey was on Tony’s team throughout the 2006 series Civil War. The fancy suit had extra arms on it, making Spidey look much more like his namesake. The Marvel films echoed that storyline, since Tony gave Spidey a suit in the movie Captain America: Civil War, but in last summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tony gifted Peter another suit. This new gold and red costume better resembles the Iron Spider outfit (with dashes of Todd McFarlane’s designs thrown in).

The Infinity War toys from Hasbro revealed that Spidey’s new suit will have legs sprouting from his back, just like the Iron Spider in the comics. But in the Entertainment Weekly covers, Tony Stark’s got legs sprouting out of his costume on his own. In fact, anime fans may think Tony Stark has been watching too much Gundam Wing.

Are we sure Tony Stark didn't keep all the Iron Spider upgrades for himself?

The other covers are neat as well and feature some unlikely MCU pairings: Winter Soldier and Mantis, Nebula and Scarlet Witch, Falcon and Gamora, War Machine and Drax, Star-Lord and Okoye, and Thor with Rocket and Groot. Expect Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy to be mighty best friends.


Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters on April 27.

Netflix’s new “limited series” Maniac is here to blow your mind, but you might want to take your time on this one rather than binge it all in one sitting. Seriously, there’s a ton of plot details and Easter eggs that are easy to miss after five hours in front of the TV. But if you’ve already made your way through the initial 10 episodes you’re probably wondering when (or if) Maniac’s Season 2 release date will arrive.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is still a few months away, but we may already know the full character lineup. Recent leaks suggest there are just two remaining spots in the roster, and we probably have a pretty good idea who will fill them. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest Smash Bros. Ultimate roster leaks, and whether you should trust them.

It took eleven years and five Michael Bay movies to get here, but with Bumblebee, the live-action Transformers films finally look like the ‘80s cartoons.

On Monday, Paramount Pictures released a new live-action trailer for Bumblebee, the Transformers prequel from director Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) that will explore the origins of the humble yellow Volkswagen-shaped Autobot. And in a treat for hardcore bot fans, the film’s trailer sports Autobots and Decepticons with boxier silhouettes, which better resemble the iconic cartoon, than the organic alien look of the previous films.

The latest in the endless string of Avengers 4 fan theories could plug one of the most glaring MCU plot holes since Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuted in 2014.

In case you forgot, the big twist of Winter Soldier is that Hydra hijacked the entire system, and one of the names that’s deemed a threat to the evil organization is Stephen Strange — before he even becomes a sorcerer. So what gives and how does it connect to Avengers 4?

By now, we all know Thor should’ve aimed for the head at the end of in Avengers: Infinity War, even though Star-Lord shoulders a lot of the blame for Thanos wiping out half the universe due to his meltdown on Titan. But if you believe Doctor Strange’s talk about one successful outcome and his alleged “endgame,” then maybe Star-Lord’s freakout was actually an essential part of the plan. At the very least, the alternative could’ve been so much worse.
