/fantastic-four-reboot-2015-thing-photo/Earlier this morning, we got our first look at The Thing from this August's Fantastic Four remake. Now, EW has another look at Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm rendered in motion capture as The Thing. Here, we get to see the character enacting his favorite catch phrase: "It's clobberin' time!" When we'll actually get to hear Jamie Bell say those words is a question for another time.
EW actually has quite a bit of new information on this Marvel superhero adaptation. They reveal a scene from the Baton Rouge, La set which finds Sue Storm learning how to fly for the first time after a cosmic accident has given her and three close pals inhuman powers. The group has been quarantined in a secret government base, where they try to come to terms with their new way of life. Not only can Sue fly, she can also turn invisible and project force fields. But, as witnessed on set, these powers come with a painful price. It physically hurts the Fantastic Four to use their gifts. Actress Kate Mara calls the process 'exhausting'.
Director Josh Trank discusses his take on the superhero genre, which is an origin story that follows Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell), and Sue (Kate Mara) as they are 'infected' during an interdimensional-travel experiment. It turns Reed into the elastic Mr. Fantastic, Johnny becomes the flammable Human Torch, Ben turns into the monstrous Thing, and Sue is the Invisible Woman. About the transformations, Josh Trank states:
"I just kinda jumped to 'body horror' in my head. Chronicle is about the evolution and strengthening of unique powers. This movie is really viewing them as a curse."
EW reveals that we will see a slightly different take on Dr. Doom. Played by Toby Kebbell, he is the fifth member of this crew, and finds himself transformed as well. The team must not only grapple with their newfound powers, they must also defeat this new enemy who used to be a friend. Take a look at the latest photo...Is Doctor Doom on the receiving end of this powerful punch? We'll have to wait and see!
