Entertainment Weekly just released four new covers for their Comic-Con 2013 preview covers, one featuring The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a pretty awesome one for Carrie, and the others featuring Ender’s Game and the BBC show Orphan Black. While the Ender’s Game cover is kind of generic with Harrison Ford standing behind Asa Butterfield, the cover with Spider-Man features a fantastic look at Jamie Foxx’s Electro and the Carrie one is just fantastically creepy.
Here is the Amazing Spider-Man 2 cover.
I don’t know if I really like the look as much as I should, but then again, things look different on the big screen. The X-Men’s costumes looked pretty bad in pictures back in the day, but ended up pretty slick in the movie and the Spider-Man costume in the first Marc Webb movie looked horrible online but I had no problem with it on the big screen.
There is also a photo from inside the magazine that shows Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker walking with Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn, who might or might not become The Green Goblin down the line. I’m not sure if I like the look of Harry here, but maybe I am spoiled to James Franco.
Another movie I am excited about is Carrie. While most people hate on horror remakes, and as a Stephen King fan this should bother me, I actually want to see this version of the movie. For one thing, Chloe Grace Moretz is one of the best young actresses working today, and for another, Julianne Moore is a perfect choice as her psycho right-wing mother.
And for the other two covers, here is a look at the Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con 2013 preview cover for Ender’s Game and Orphan Black…
The magazine hits newsstands on July 11.
