Fantastic Four Pictures Reveal Our First Look at the Thing
One of the movies coming out this summer that fans have been speculating and have been wary of is The Fantastic Four. A teaser came out a couple months ago that I really liked (you can see that here). However, the film has yet to put an emphasis on the marketing, which has made a lot of people worried. Personally, I think it makes sense to wait before they start marketing. All the superhero anticipation is on Avengers: Age of Ultron and once that gets out of the way, people will be more interested in The Fantastic Four. While there hasn't been a huge marketing presence, there has been some. We got the trailer and some images have been released. Now, we get even more pictures, ones the reveal the Thing (played by Jaime Bell), whom hasn't been the spotlight much yet.
You can see the pictures below:
For the first two pictures, I really like them. It gives off this horror film vibe that the filmmakers have talked about. The Fantastic Four won't be glorified heroes like the Avengers- they're mutated freaks of nature, which I think is a very different take that adds some diversity with all the comic book films coming out these days.
As for the Thing, I think he looks great. He looks like the classic Thing, but he's also different. He looks less like a human being and more like a pile of rocks. I am glad that they went with CGI over practical effects, as it adds more to this character in my opinion. Overall, I think he looks great and I can't wait to see him in action.
