Elizabeth Olsen points out her weird looking photo on the Avengers: Infinity War Empire cover. With less than six weeks to go before debuting all over the world, Disney and Marvel Studios' marketing machine is hard at work in promoting the much-anticipated flick. So far, so good, as the Joe and Anthony Russo's latest smashed ticket pre-sale records and is poised to become to score the MCU's highest opening weekend at the box office, with estimates of $215 million.
Yesterday, Empire unveiled six collectible covers for their May issue featuring some of the stars of Infinity War. Breaking up the massive principal cast in groups of four and one exclusively devoted to Thanos, fans got excited right away with the team-ups, especially after seeing Iron Man and Captain America side-by-side. However, as people continue to look at the front pages, it's become more and more apparent that Empire may have been too heavy in digitally enhancing some of the photos, including Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch.
Olsen didn't miss her odd looking photo on the cover of Empire Magazine. Taking to her official Instagram account, posting the cover featuring Wanda, Doctor Strange, Okoye and Drax, she captioned the image with the release date of Infinity War and then subtly cited the issue asking her followers if the snap looks like her. Her fans, then, quickly responded negative and while others shared that they were about to ask what happened to her face, others said that she's still beautiful nevertheless. Check out her upload below:
The actress' overly contoured face isn't the only issue with the covers. Many have also pointed out that Chris Evans' Captain America's beard was poorly added. While no one knows what went down during the photo shoot for the images used, it seems like the actor wasn't really sporting facial hair when it took place as several people have pointed out how noticeably fake it is. Considering how big the news was when people first saw the super soldier bearded, it makes sense that even the tiniest detail will be scrutinized. Facial hair has been a popular topic of conversation in the comic book movie world following Henry Cavill's CGI-removed mustache in Justice League that left his upper lip looking really odd. In this instance, however, Cap is suffering a reverse case of that situation.
In Empire's defense, the character images are most likely not taken by their people. With so many actors to gather, Marvel Studios may have organized the shoot themselves and the snaps were sent to several media outlets to use for their respective Avengers: Infinity War covers. Looking at past spreads from outlets such as Vanity Fair, EW and the latest one from Empire, it's presumably the case considering that most actors are sporting the same looks, either just tweaked a bit or with different poses.
