'Fantastic Four' Movie News: First Look At Jaime Bell's Version Of 'The Thing' Shows Performance Capture Work [VIDEO]

While Fantastic Four didn't make any waves during Comic-Con, the first glimpse at one of the heroes surfaced on the Internet.

Writer Simon Kinberg Talks 'Fantastic Four' Story And When To Expect The First Footage

Surfacing on the Justified Films Twitter account (the image is now pulled down), the first look at The Thing, played in the film by Jamie Bell, shows that Bell will be using some performance capturing to make the hero come to life.

This isn't Bell's first bit of work with the technology as he worked alongside the master of the medium, Andy Serkis, during The Adventures of Tintin. But having Bell use this technology to play The Thing should make for a striking performance as performance capture work has shown to give characters more life than some would expect (see the Serkis' work in the recent Planet of the Apes movies).

'Fantastic Four' Actor Says Film Is 'Not Your Typical Superhero Movie'

While not much has come out on the Fantastic Four front, it is reassuring to see some care being taken into the heroes. Writer Simon Kinberg has already said some footage would be shown soon at either WonderCon or New York Comic-Con so hopefully the rest of the team will look as strong as The Thing.

Fantastic Four has Bell starring alongside Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, and Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch. Toby Kebbell, who also worked performance capture with Serkis on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, will be playing Doctor Doom. The script comes from Kinberg with Josh Trank set to direct the feature.

Fantastic Four hits theaters on June 19, 2015.
