Empire Magazine Covers The Avengers

Empire Magazine has gotten some big scoops on upcoming superhero movies like The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers. They continue this trend by getting exclusive magazine covers for the upcoming Marvel movie The Avengers. Probably one of the coolest is the ‘subscriber only’ cover featuring a chunk of the ensemble cast in costume. It looks pretty cool to see a collection of The Avengers in one place.
It seems that in this cover art that Tony Stark is wearing an older version of the Iron Man armor as he once again has the round arc reactor in place. At the end of Iron Man 2 Stark had created a new arc reactor that was triangular in shape. I noted this irregularity in some of the earlier artwork for the Avengers and didn’t understand why Stark would be using old armor in the Avengers. Turns out the folks at Empire Magazine can shed some light on that.
Now that sort of makes sense that Tony Stark would make use of multiple suits or armor in the movie and explains why a good deal of the promo artwork features the round arc reactor. My theory is that something happens to critically damage the current Iron Man armor. As such, Tony will be forced to use the older Iron Man armor and the arc reactor that will slowly kill him.
Empire also released covers featuring each individual character. These are featured in the gallery below. They seem to be the same character pictures just with different backgrounds. Is it time for this movie to come out yet? I’m really ready for the Avengers on the big screen.
