New Fantastic Four Images Reveal First Full Look at The Thing
New stills from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four have been released, and they give us our first full glimpse of The Thing. We saw Jamie Bell as Thing's alter ego Ben Grimm, and we saw a brief clip of him in mid-transformation, but this is our first time seeing him in all of his rocky glory:

First published in Empire, the image shows that Trank is using motion capture in order to portray The Thing, rather than weird orange suit worn by Michael Chiklis in the previous adaptation. And in keeping with the more serious tone of the reboot, this version does succeed in looking less cheesy than Chiklis's iteration, although it's difficult to make a hulking guy made out of rock look dignified exactly.

Here are a couple more images, first of the Fantastic Four as they travel to another dimension and then of Miles Teller's Mr. Fantastic ominously strapped to a gurney:
