FANTASTIC FOUR: First Look at Jamie Bell as The Thing

Fox Comic Book Reboot

Empire Online has debuted an official first look at Jamie Bell‘s CGI The Thing from Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four, as well as two other images from the reboot.

The character was previously played by Michael Chiklis in Fantastic Four (2005) and its sequel, Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007). It is obviously true that technology has advanced dramatically since 2007, allowing Bell more freedom to act. Looks good and I’m very interested to see the motion. Comparing to the first two F4 movies, it’s the only Ben Grimm post-transformation that is faithful to the comics.

Also starring Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Toby Kebbell, and Tim Blake Nelson, Fantastic Four opens August 7th.

UPDATE: It’s clobberin’ time! EW has released a new image of The Thing. Check it out below.
