During Comic-Con this past July, the first photo of the Thing was rumored to have leaked. Director Josh Trank seemingly verified that this was the real deal, a prop being used as a stand-in on set. It was later reported that Josh Trank's Twitter account had been hacked, and that the photo was not official. We still don't have any word from the studio, and probably won't until they release an official image.
At this time, while these Doctor Doom photos certainly look authentic, they have not been verified by the studio. Principal photography has wrapped on The Fantastic Four. It will be in theaters next year, with a sequel already planned for 2017.
What do you think of Toby Kebbell's new look as Doctor Doom?
The Fantastic Four comes to theaters August 7th, 2015 and stars Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell, Tim Blake Nelson, Reg E. Cathey. The film is directed by Josh Trank.
