First official look at Jamie Bell as The Thing from Fantastic Four

04.09.2015

Fantastic Four Josh Trank Jamie Bell Miles Teller Kate Mara Michael B. Jordan

FOX (via Empire) has finally released the first official frontal look at Jamie Bell's CGI The Thing from Josh Trank's FANTASTIC FOUR, as well as two additional new stills from the reboot. One image features the team exploring the alternate dimension that grants them superpowers, while the other has Miles Teller's Reed Richards on a gurney post-exploration.

Check 'em out:

Although in my opinion The Thing is looking great here, I am curious as to how he will look in action. Do you think Jamie Bell's The Thing is an improvement over the Michael Chiklis version from the Tim Story-directed FF flicks, and when do you think the first image of Toby Kebbell as Doom will be released?

FANTASTIC FOUR is scheduled to be in theaters on August 7, 2015.

I have to admit that looks rock solid to me! I will reprise some of my negativity and at least spend the 1.20 it will cost to rent it from red box. Because I always loved the thing from the comics, however everything else I have seen and heard on this film still blows.

The Fantastic Four I remember operated in daylight hours and these guys are in a lot of dark rooms so far. When I see Things baby blues I'll make my decision.

A mostly positive rating for the Josh Trank FANTASTIC FOUR?

Isn't that one of the signs of the Apocalypse? :) :P

As I've said before, I think the cast is the strongest feature of this reboot. I'll want to see The Thing in action, but I'm confident Jamie Bell (along with the others) will knock it out of the park . . . if the script allows him to.

I prefer the previous Thing design. I liked it for the same reason I like Nolan's movies, practical effects will always trump CGI for me

One of my favourite comics as a kid was a Hulk vs Thing comic. Was my prized possession. I liked the monster heroes. I would love to see them go toe to toe on film (even if we know Hulk would win). Looking forward to Hulk Buster fight but if I could switch Iron Man out for Thing that would be awesome. Several years till we see that fight.

Thing looks okay but I guess it's the sort of cgi you really need to see in motion - see how the rocks animate with eachother. Definitely waiting on positive reviews of this movie or I'd wait for it to get cheap on home formats. The build up to this movie just seemed too off to risk spending a lot to see it (unless it's really well received).

These are the type of photos we should have been getting much earlier. The design looks decent but I still think every cast member for the four main characters are absolutely all wrong. So it doesn't matter how decent the design of the Thing looks if Bell can't deliver the proper performance for the character.

But it doesn't matter anyway considering the film looks awful and that it looks and/or feels NOTHING like a Fantastic Four film. Just a bunch of generic Sci-Fi films put together

Imagine for a second if the publicity campaign for this project started out with just that pic. And we didn't hear about Dr Doom as a disgruntled blogger, the darker grittier FF. Michael B Jordan as Johnny Storm, and discarding the entire FF canon.

If the publicity campaign started off with JUST the picture of Ben Grimm, the difference is going to be 100 million dollars in box office. Seriously whoever runs the PR campaign at Fox needs to lose his/her job.

Just saw that picture as well. Looks real enough. Wish we could see his whole body because just that upper torso, the costume reminds me of The Phantom.

"...centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe..."

What? I thought they were hit with cosmic rays while in orbit around earth. oh well....

This is another complaint that really bothers me. The original origin for the Fantastic Four was that they were hit with cosmic rays and transformed on a mission to space, but this was during a time where we were sending astronauts to the moon. Space travel is becoming less relevant these days. This film's origin is true to the Ultimate Fantastic Four series, which had them transformed while being transported to the "N-Zone."

Space travel is becoming less relevant these days. This film's origin is true to the Ultimate Fantastic Four series, which had them transformed while being transported to the "N-Zone." This series also featured a younger team (Reed Richards was a child prodigy, and the event that mutated him occurred when he was 21). I don't understand why people complain that this isn't true to the comics, since it is actually in line with the Ultimate series. The original origin is obsolete.

Yeah okay. I hear you there. Updating some things can make sense (they certainly changed a fair bit in the MCU) and is fine so long as the spirit of the source is captured. Problem for me is that I don't see it. The overall feel is far removed. That's also reflected in some of the casting for me. I just don't see the characters in those faces.

Jamie Bell and The Thing are, to me, the best of this new remake. At least for now until the movie comes out. As much as I like Tim Story's The Thing costume, this new Thing looks Solid! And those white spacesuits - are those a nod to the Future Foundation costumes or just a coincidence?

Best part of the movie so far....

This film is going to go down in history as the one whose marketing campaign was even worse than John Carter. At least VFX has improved enough to make this look convincing. Chiklis was awesome as The Thing, but the outfit was really bad (and he was still about 6' tall which seemed way too small). I doubt Bell will be nearly as good as him in the voice department.

It seriously looks good to me. I know people are going to find a reason to hate it because they feel they have to (pride is a bitch), but I honestly think this is pretty cool. Definitely going to see this.

The Thing looks great. Visually, it's an improvement over the Chiklis version from Tim Story's FF movies. But now we have to worry about the voice. Chiklis nailed The Thing's voice and Jamie Bell's voice is not as deep or gravelly as Chiklis' (no pun intended).
