Hey Marvel fans, you know that picture of The Thing from the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot that has been floating around the internets for sometime now and then was supposedly post by director Josh Trank? Well guess what, IT’S STILL NOT OFFICIAL!! Someone claiming to be Trank put up the post, or maybe is Trank, posted this picture, which is nothing new to the comic book world:
IMAGE HAS BEEN REMOVED DUE TO STUDIOS REQUEST
Regardless of who posted this, or what this really is, it sure does look like the classic character. Filming has just recently wrapped on this project and I am really surprised how well Fox has been able to keep a lid on things. I have been very cautious about posting anything about this pic, but at the same time I love how easily the internet can be fooled. This “prank” went as far as the person behind the account answering questions from fans on Twitter! The account has been removed, and many sites have had to update their stories. Too bad.
I am really looking forward to this film, I was a big fan of Trank’s Chronicle and I am wondering how he will use the “found footage” aspect to tell the story of one of my favorite Marvel titles. I’m sure it won’t be long before we see something official from the movie and Josh Trank. I think it would be the best idea seeing that the film has been under a lot of critical fire.
Fantastic Four is due out in 2015 and stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, and Toby Kebbell.
