Thanks to 20th Century Fox, /film and apparently some dude’s Instagram feed, we finally see the industrial strength official photo of The Thing, the rock formation from the new superhero flick Fantastic Four. Along with The Thing photo, we see two other awesome photos from the upcoming film. We can over analyze both photos below.

This photo looks to be Richard Reed. Miles Teller is laying on some sort of device that will either help or hurt his flexibility. His left arm appears to be stretched more so than his right and it seems that his hands are no pictured or are completely absent. Are those scientists in the green suits? Not too sure if this is a positive or negative photo for Mr. Fantastic but I certainly can’t wait to find out.

The last photo looks like it is right out of a shot from Prometheus or even Interstellar. The shot itself looks superb and the world that is set up is incredibly vast. The setting alone looks to be out of this world and creates a universe that is like no other Fantastic Four film we’ve seen before.

Fantastic Four opens August 7. The superhero picture is written Simon Kinberg and directed by Josh Trank. The film stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Toby Kebbell.

Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

The new Fantastic Four reboot will stray far away from the cartoonish films that precedes it. Chronicle director Josh Trank says that his new film will own the tone of a “dark Amblin movie.” Both Trank and writer/ producer Simon Kinberg say that they want to take the silliness out of the narrative and contextualize everything in a real world.

Trank and his team have done a good job of slowly but surely releasing small tidbits of the new film. We have learned about the cast a while ago. We saw their matching uniforms. We saw the trailer. And now, Empire has provided us with four new awesome stills.

These four stills don’t reveal too much, which is exactly what we want. The new four are young, seemingly naive, attractive and have so much to prove. Let’s see if they can succeed in a world where their powers aren’t necessarily overwhelming and completely dominant. No photos of the villain Victor Domachev yet, but I sense there are some on the horizon. Fantastic Four opens August 7, 2015.
