Entertainment Weekly’s Captain Marvel Cover Story

She’s an all-powerful Air Force pilot from outer space. He’s a government desk jockey with zero extraterrestrial experience. This intergalactic odd couple forms the backbone of Captain Marvel (out March 8), the 1990s-set film that follows Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and an orange cat named Goose as they try to stop invading aliens from treating Planet Earth as their next battlefield.

It’s a playful, trash-talking relationship based in reality. Since starring together in 2017’s Kong: Skull Island and Larson’s directorial debut, Unicorn Store (premiering April 5 on Netflix), Larson and Jackson have become the kind of buddies who lean on each other’s shoulders in interviews and finish each other’s sentences. “Marvel was like, ‘Is there anybody that you’d wanna do [the movie] with?’” Larson recalls. “And I was like, ‘Please. I need to be with my pal. Don’t let me do it alone!’”

Ahead of Captain Marvel’s release, Larson and Jackson sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk aliens, Jedi masters, and the magnitude of Marvel fame. (They also opened up about their scene-stealing costar: Goose the cat.)

And as a special bonus, EW is honoring Captain Marvel’s retro setting by taking this week’s cover back to 1995, complete with old fonts and logos. Make sure to pick up a copy on stands Friday to experience the full issue in all its throwback glory.

Entertainment Weekly’s Captain Marvel Collector’s Edition

Marvel fans got their first introduction to Brie Larson’s high-flying Captain Marvel at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, and the hot shot-pilot-turned-galactic-warrior will soon be storming the big screen with a solo film of her own. 

To celebrate the character’s official induction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Entertainment Weekly has assembled a massive special edition breaking down all things Captain Marvel.

The issue takes a deep dive into Carol Danvers’ world, from her complicated comics backstory to her path to the screen (and her history-making turn as the MCU’s first solo female hero). Not only did we get some inside scoop from interviews with the film’s stars — including Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Lashana Lynch, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg, Gemma Chan, and more — but we also have exclusive stills, behind-the-scenes photos, and production art. It’s the perfect guide to the Marvel’s newest hero, whether you’ve been a longtime member of the Carol Corps or are just making your first foray into the MCU.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Photo Honors Stan Lee’s Legacy

Ask any Spider-Man fan, big or small, to repeat the most enduring message of the web-slinging Peter Parker, and you’ll likely get a faithful recitation of his Uncle Ben’s advice: “With great power comes great responsibility.” This concept goes hand-in-hand with something the heroic Peter says, with a heavy dose of irony, early in Sony Pictures Animation’s new Into the Spider-Verse: “There’s only one Spider-Man, and you’re looking at him.”

Of course, as this new official photo—which pairs the film’s voice talent with their various on-screen avatars—demonstrates, he’s wrong. Into the Spider-Verse is packed with a number of Spider-People who all share the heroic burden Uncle Ben was so concerned with. In that way, this latest on-screen iteration might be the most faithful adaptation of Stan Lee’s vision for the character, whom he co-created over half a century ago.

Into the Spider-Verse—which exists alongside Tom Holland’s current live-action run as Peter Parker—introduces Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, a Brooklyn-dwelling, bi-racial version of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. But thanks to a rip in the fabric of reality, he’s not alone in facing down a packed roster of Spider villains, including Liev Schreiber’s Kingpin. Morales is also joined by Jake Johnson’s battered Peter Parker, Hailee Steinfeld’s wry Spider-Gwen, John Mulaney’s Looney Tunes-esque Spider-Ham, Nicolas Cage’s dour Spider-Man Noir, and Kimiko Glenn’s chipper Peni Parker, with her robotic sidekick “Sp//dr.”

At an early point on this hero’s journey, Morales listens in awe as Peter Parker’s frequent on-screen love interest, Mary Jane Watson (Zoë Kravitz), offers a different take on Uncle Ben’s advice, one that underlines the shared responsibility of the multi-verse: “We are all Spider-Man, and we are all counting on you.” Later, the movie puts it even more succinctly: “Anyone can wear the mask.”

Stan Lee’s Legacy Lives On In Entertainment Weekly’s Special A Life of Marvel Edition

A life this big could not be contained in one story.

After Marvel icon Stan Lee died on Nov. 12 at the age of 95, Entertainment Weekly put together this remembrance of the comic book impresario’s life and work.

In Stan Lee: A Life of Marvel, they tell the story of “Stan the Man” from multiple perspectives — including classic interviews with him detailing how he and the Marvel braintrust of artists and writers created Spider-Man, The Hulk, Fantastic Four, and other heroes and villains.

This collector’s issue spans the Silver Age of comic books, which Lee helped define, and explores how that Big Bang is still expanding into television and movies today.

Accompanied by galleries of photos and illustrations, A Life of Marvel includes:

– Exclusive interviews with other comic book and movie greats about Stan Lee’s influence (and influences).

– A breakdown of his most famous characters — as well as a rundown of Lee’s own many pop culture cameos and appearances.

– Tributes and remembrances of fans as well as the actors that brought his characters to life, including a first-person account from Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige about the last time he met with Lee.

While one story cannot contain his entire legacy, one word can: Excelsior!

Entertainment Weekly’s Stan Lee: A Life of Marvel is on sale now on newsstands wherever magazines are sold.
