Even though production has wrapped on Josh Trank’s ‘Fantastic Four’ for a while now, we’ve barely heard anything about it besides who the cast members are and that it might have a little bit of a found footage feel to it. But now, we have our first look at the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Thing, who will be played in this reboot by Jamie Bell.
Over the weekend, it appeared that Trank was participating in a Twitter Q&A with fans about his upcoming Marvel movie for 20th Century Fox. However, it was revealed on Monday morning that the account was a fake and that none of the information released through it should be believed. So when the fake Josh Trank account shared the picture of Ben Grimm’s rockier form on set, many people were seeing it for the first time even though it was an image that actually surfaced quietly last month. You can check out what the mighty Thing will look like in the new version of Marvel’s First Family in the picture below:
UPDATE: Per the request of Fox Studios, the image of The Thing was removed.
The first thing that you’ll notice is that Bell’s Thing isn’t as orange as we’re used to seeing the character. The hero appears to have more Earthy rock tones, but the picture is a bit blurry, so we’ll save the full color analysis for whenever official footage is released. Still, it looks as if the trademark blue eyes are there under a more stern looking facial structure. I’m looking forward to seeing this suit in action when the studio is finally ready to share some.
