The Thing Will Be Completely CGI In The <em>Fantastic Four</em> Reboot

Apparently the big orange bruiser will no longer be a dude in a slightly dodgy costume, but a fully realized CG character. The title for the reboot, Fantastic Four: Reborn, is also confirmed...

According to one of Screenrant's sources, The Thing(previously played in a prosthetic suit by Michale Chiklis) will be completely CGI in the upcoming reboot. Noting the fans anger that The Thing was noticeably shorter than the rest of his team mates and didn't appear to be nearly strong enough..

It would seem that the suits in charge of 20th Century Fox have heard the fans’ complaints because I have it from a source inside the Fox SFX department working on the Fantastic Four Reboot (officially titled Fantastic Four Reborn) that The Thing will officially be 100% CG.

Thats cool I guess. We have certainly seen how well fully CG characters can look on screen(Hulk, Gollum, The Navii), but it has always been less effective when said character has had to interact a lot with actual actors(even Gollum,s scenes with the Hobbits in LOTR were never as "real" looking as his solo shots), and The Thing would most certainly have a lot of interacting to do! Either way, it has to be better than his incarnation in the last movies, although I actually though Michael Chiklis' performance was one of the more enjoyable elements of those turkeys.

Paul Young at Screenrant goes on to say..

Another thing my source noted was that work on Fantastic Four Reborn has been put on the back burner until X-Men: First Class is in the can and shooting for that film doesn’t begin until September 21st, 2010. So it could be awhile before we see any images or graphics related to the Fantastic Four Reborn film.

So, excited anyone?
