First look at Jamie Bell as the Thing in "The Fantastic Four"

Empire mag has revealed new pics from the upcoming "Fantastic Four" film, including Jamie Bell, via CGI, as Ben Grimm, a.k.a. The Thing.

The movie, which is produced by 20th Century Fox - not under the Marvel banner - due to previously held rights, is out Aug. 8.

It also stars Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kate Mara as Sue Storm and Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm.

First teaser: Fantastic Four 2015 movie

Marvel reportedly isn't too crazy this film from 20th Century Fox, which retained movie rights on the Fantastic Four characters, and not Marvel itself.  The publisher even went so far as to -- at least temporarily --  cancel the Fantastic Four comic book to avoid publicizing the movie.

At any rate, here's a first look. We'll so how it fares among fans and at the box office.
