Breaking Down the Latest Images from AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

Entertainment Weekly’s new covers feature the heroes of Avengers: Infinity War ready for battle. What secrets do they reveal about the movie? We discussed it on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, along with Jon Favreau joining the galaxy far, far away, and if the latest leaked photo from Shazam should have us worried.

Jessica Chobot was joined today by editor Kyle Anderson, as well as producers Kate Meyers and Jesse Gill, and they started with Lucasfilm’s announcement Jon Favreau will write and produce Disney’s first live-action Star Wars series. He’s had a lot of success for them with the first two Iron Man movies, as well as The Jungle Book, but do we think he’s a good choice for Star Wars? When do we think Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy will finally hire a woman to lead a film? And what kind of story do we hope the show will tell?

Speaking of huge Disney franchises, EW released 15 new covers ahead of Infinity War. What do we make of them? What is up with Iron Man’s strange new suit? Why is Bucky’s arm suddenly not silver? After Thor’s missing eye, is that further evidence we can’t trust these trailers? And are we okay with this being the longest MCU movie yet?

Finally, there’s another leaked photo of Zachary Levi in his Shazam costume, and it’s…..uh….not what we were expecting. Is this really his costume, or could this be a dream sequence? Do we think they’ll change the backstory and cut out Billy Batson? And how do we think the character will fit into the larger DCEU? Should we expect any Justice League cameos?

Nerdist News Talks Back airs live Monday to Thursday at 1 p.m. PT on our YouTube and Alpha channels, and we end the week with Nerdist News What the Fridays at 1 p.m. PT, only at Alpha. That’s why no matter what day of the week it is we always have all your magazine covers covered.
