Thing in Fantastic Four will be made entirely of CG (and wank motions)

In between me kicking their asses at poker (HIYO!), the guys at Screenrant apparently had a chance to talk to the guys in charge of visual effects for 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, Fantastic Four Reborn.  (Alternate title: Just F*cking Let It Go, Fox, Seriously).  Word around the campfire is that the Thing, last played by Michael Chiklis in a big plastic suit, will be 100% CG this time around, a la the Hulk.

One of the major complaints about the 2nd Thing suit was the size ( I say 2nd because Roger Corman made the 1st suit in the 90s); Thing is supposed to be a big, hulking, rock monster type creature who is able to lift hundreds, if not thousands, of tons and dwarf everyone on his team in size. This just can’t be pulled off in a practical suit.  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 that The Thing will officially be 100% CG.

If you’re wondering why you haven’t heard much about this project, it’s because we won’t be seeing it for a while (if at all).

My source noted 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. [Screenrant]

I guess it’s good that The Thing will be 100% CG this time around, but honestly, you could make him out of nothing but cheesesteaks and blowjobs for all I care, it’s still not getting me to sit through another one of these godawful queef balloons.
