To celebrate the impending release of Avengers: Infinity War, Empire magazine is rolling out six covers for their next issue. Each features different members of the MCU’s biggest production yet. But they hit a snag on a cover that presents Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch.

Namely, what the hell did they do to Elizabeth Olsen’s face? Dare to compare the cover versus a movie still of Olsen:

Or compare the Empire cover against the header image from the 21st Annual Hollywood Film Awards (via Getty).

It’s not that she looks bad on Empire’s cover. But that intensely contoured, pouting, vaguely Famke Janssen-esque superheroine on this cover doesn’t look like Olsen. Which is a point the actress made on Instagram, calling out Empire with, “Does this look like me?”

Naturally, Twitter had thoughts.

So how did Empire respond? By blaming Disney.

In a statement to Newsweek, Empire said: “Empire magazine did not make any alteration to the Avengers: Infinity War artwork, supplied to them by Disney and Marvel Studios, that appears on the May 2018 cover.”

What do you think of Olsen’s photoshop makeover?
