Marvel Comics Celebrates The MCU's Phase 2 Movies With New Variant Covers By Some Of Their Best Artists

Marvel Comics has revealed a new batch of variant covers based on Phase 2 movies like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Check them out after the jump...

Next March, Marvel Comics will highlight the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 2 movies with variant covers from some of the publisher's greatest and most talented artists. Depicting characters and moments from the second era of legendary Marvel Studios movies, these promise to be a must-buy.

Alexander Lozano showcases Tony Stark's epic arsenal of armours as seen in Iron Man 3, Ryan Stegman delivers an electrifying illustration of Thor's battle with Malekith from Thor: The Dark World, Declan Shalvey captures the explosive energy of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Skan revisits the first outing of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Valerio Schiti depicts the epic showdown between the Avengers and Ultron from Avengers: Age of Ultron, and David Nakayama puts his spin on the small-scale showdown between Ant-Man and Yellowjacket from Ant-Man.

This sort of synergy between Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios is always fun to see, and enlisting these artists to put their spin on MCU characters delivers some amazing results. 

After all, we're used to seeing the MCU borrow from what they create on the page, so flipping that on its head is a welcome sight. Needless to say, Phase 3 variants are likely to follow later in 2022 and we should eventually get some covers revisiting the current big and small screen Phase 4 stories.

For now, check out these Phase 2 variant covers below:
