Fantastic Four

Just last month, we got our first good look at the front of The Thing in an international banner for Josh Trank's comic book reboot of Fantastic Four. But the photo wasn't very good quality, so we're happy to point your way to three new photos from the late summer release, one that gives us a much better glimpse at Jamie Bell as the rocky hero. Honestly, he doesn't look too far removed from the version Michael Chiklis played in Fox's old Fantastic Four franchise, though he looks more jagged and less rubbery. In addition, there's a new photo of the team as astronauts, and Miles Teller as Reed Richards getting stretched a bit.

Here's the new photos from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four from Empire:

You can also watch the first teaser trailer for Trank's Fantastic Four right here.

Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and written by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past). The contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell star in the film which 20th Century Fox releases on August 7th. Well?

The Thing's head looks like one of those dry apple faces art projects you did in grade school. The rest of him looks cool, I just wish they had done better with top half, just sayin' is all.

This makes Michael Chiklis' Thing look like it was made in the 80's.

He needs more brow! There... fixed it.

The brow looks ridiculous in the comics and it would look ridiculous on film. Get over it. Never seen people complain about a gotd@mn brown line.

Indeed! I think it looks fine.

Rock n Rollllll on Apr 9, 2015


I do, too.

I gotta agree about his brow. The shape of his head and signature eyebrows. Looks terrible.

Mike Avallone on Apr 9, 2015


Looks like shit, way to mess it up Fox.

If The Thing ever gets stuck in snow he will look just like an old dog turd.

Looks too much like a man made of clay, instead of a man turned to rock.
