While 20th Century Fox’s The Fantastic Four reboot has already completed filming, surprisingly little is known about the film since the studio unwisely skipped Comic-Con last month. However, we may be learning a bit more if leaked photos from the set turn out to be real.
The fan site Geek-Pride claimed to have obtained two on-set photos that showed Doctor Doom, the main villain in the FF universe, on a completely green screen set. If it is Doom, the filmmakers have decided to give him a completely grey body, doing away with his green outfit. However, the familiar green hood and cape remain.
Apparently, the images were real enough that Geek-Pride received a request from Fox to take them down. However, they live on other sites like ScreenRant.
One of the other images also shows another actor in a full motion-capture suit, likely playing Ben Grimm/The Thing. That actor looks much bulkier than Jamie Bell, who is playing Grimm.
The film currently has a post-production status on IMDb, so we know director Josh Trank has finished filming at least. He has until June 19, 2015 to get the movie together, since that’s when it is currently scheduled for release.
In addition to Bell, the movie stars Kate Mara, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan as the other members of the team. Toby Kebbell is playing Doom and Tim Blake Nelson will play another villain, Mole Man.
