"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Although The Avengers cover for the new subscriber-only edition of Empire isn’t much to look at — it’s a Photoshop jumble on par with that Entertainment Weekly issue in September — inside the magazine, it’s a different story, complete with three new images from Marvel’s hotly anticipated ensemble film.
Oh, all right, they’re not particularly exciting images, but they do offer no looks at Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, and Chris Evans as a sweaty Steve Rogers.
Those of us who don’t subscribe to Empire will be able to pick up one of four covers featuring the individual superheroes — or heck, all four, if that’s your thing. You can check them all out below, or when they arrive on shelves Thursday.
Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers also stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill and Stellan Skarsgård as Dr. Selvig. The movie opens May 4.
