Now, this is by far an official look at the post-transformation Ben Grimm from Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four redo, but JustifiedFiilms claim to have a shot from the set of the film that shows what we can expect The Thing to look like. This is said to be a bust used on set as a placeholder, for lighting purposes and for something for the rest of the cast to react to. Either way, even though I’m far from sold on 20th Century Fox’s FF remake, if The Thing ends up looking anything like this, it’s a good start.
Currently shooting, The Fantastic Four features Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/Human Torch, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing, Toby Kebbell as Victor von Doom/Dr. Doom, Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder/Moleman, and Reg E. Cathey as Dr. Franklin Storm.
To be directed by Trank, this revamped FF is set for an 18th June, 2015 release, with a sequel already confirmed for 14th July, 2017.
