We’re less than a year away from Chronicle director Josh Trank’s reboot of The Fantastic Four, but 20th Century Fox has kept nearly every detail about the film under tight lock and key. The only things we know for sure are the cast (which includes Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller) and a few minor tonal details from producer Simon Kinberg.
The rest remains a mystery, as Fox opted out of cashing in on the marketing bonanza that is San Diego Comic-Con. We don’t even know the status of the film’s production, as Mara posted that filming had wrapped in July, only a week after Jordan commented that the script was “still evolving.”
Despite Fox’s best efforts to keep all aspects of the project a complete mystery, a few leaks have occurred. Last month, an image of The Thing appeared online, »

20th Century Fox and those involved in the upcoming reboot of "The Fantastic Four" have yet to confirm the authenticity of last month's photo of a prop stand-in of Ben Grimm in his full 'The Thing' rock monster form.
As a result, don't expect an answer either way to these photos which popped up late last night on Geek Pride that claim to show Toby Kebbell in his Doctor Doom costume on a green screen set.
The design is quite different to the comics and the previous films, looking akin to the previous costume having been partly melted and residing in a dumpster for several years. Of course with all the green screen involved in the film it's hard to say what the true finished form of it will look like.

More set photos from director Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four reboot have been leaked, this time giving us our first look at Doctor Doom. It is not known if this is Toby Kebbell under the costume or a stand-in. Here, we see Doctor Doom on a green screen sound stage interacting with both Jamie Bell's The Thing stand-in and Michael B. Jordan's Human Torch stand-in.

During Comic-Con this past July, the first photo of the Thing was rumored to have leaked. Director Josh Trank seemingly verified that this was the real deal, a prop being »
We've already see what Jamie Bell will look like as The Thing in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot. And now, we may have the first photos of Toby Kebbell as Doctor Doom. The photos are from the website Geek-Pride. It hasn't been confirmed that this is from the "Fantastic Four" set, but it sure looks that way. In one of the photos it is believed that a stuntman is standing in for The Thing and in the other photo you can see The Human Torch. Check everything out below. "Fantastic Four" is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) And is set to hit theaters on June 19th, 2015. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
Last month an image arrived online showing how Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm will look as The Thing in Fox’s upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four (although sadly we were forced to take it down), and now thanks to Geek Pride we may have our first look at Toby Kebbell’s Victor Von Doom, as well as a glimpse of what appears to be Michael B. Jordan’s Human Torch. If these images are genuine, then don’t expect them to stay online for very long, so check them out while you can…
Update: Images removed at the request of the studio.
The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015, with a Johs Trank (Chronicle) directing a cast that includes Miles Teller (Divergent) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) as the Invisible Woman, Michael B.

The website Geek Pride reckons these are leaked images from the set of Fox's Fantastic Four reboot, and looking at them gives us no reason to doubt them. Following on from our first look at the Thing a while ago, we now appear to have the very first pics of Doctor Doom, who will be played by Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes actor Toby Kebbell. You'll notice who could well be a Human Torch stand-in in one pic too, and the stocky guy in the other is apparently Jamie Bell's Thing stunt double. What do you think? Josh Trank directs Fantastic Four, which also stars Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, and Tim Blake Nelson. »
The Fantastic Four director Josh Trank revealed on his official Twitter page that principal photography has wrapped, before sharing the first look at The Thing (Jamie Bell). This is the same photo that leaked last month, but it was never confirmed to be authentic, until now.
The filmmaker also held an impromptu Q&A session, where he shared new details about this superhero adventure, starring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara. Take a look at what he had to say below, where he confirms there is no found footage aspect of the reboot and the first trailer will arrive later this year.
We wrapped. #FantasticFour

Despite the fact that 20th Century Fox’s reboot of The Fantastic Four was absent from the San Diego Comic-Con last month, a production image did leak during the con, giving us an alleged sculpt of Ben Grimm’s alter-ego The Thing. The authenticity of the photo was subsequently confirmed by Fox, who sent out a rather threatening legal letter demanding its removal, but now director Josh Trank has taken to Twitter to confirm that the image was genuine.
Update: Turns out the Twitter account is fake, and Fox’s lawyers have pulled their usual trick, demanding its removal. Apologies again.

If you'll remember, and I'm sure you will. Late last month during San Diego Comic-Con an image of what appeared to be a leaked set photo of The Thing (Ben Grimm) from Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four film appeared online. 20th Century Fox never came out and denied its authenticity, but some people were still skeptical. Today, the director rejoined Twitter after a bit of a hiatus and tweeted out a confirmation of the image and a message confirming that filming had actually wrapped today. Now that we know the image is legit, do you like the new and improved version of The Thing? Update! Josh Trank just held an impromptu question and answer session on Twitter. He answered questions about: costumes, found footage rumors, Jamie Bell's motion-capture performance as The Thing, Toby Kebbell's Dr. Doom performance, Johnny and Sue connection, tone and the issue some fans have with Michael B. »

If you’re going to have someone on your side to protect you from bad guys and guide you through life’s trials and tribulations, there is probably nobody better than Sigourney Weaver to get the job done. But although she’s one of the most badass action stars in film history, she’s leaving the niceties to Liam Neeson this time around. Weaver has signed on to the cast of the children’s fantasy flick A Monster Calls, an adaptation of the brilliant 2011 novel from Patrick Ness that will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) and feature Neeson as the title creature. The actress is taking on something a little more frosty in the film, playing grandmother to 13-year-old protagonist Conor, whose life is especially complicated with a double whammy of brutal bullying from classmates at school and his mother’s (Felicity Jones) prognosis of terminal cancer.

Toby Kebbell is quite in-demand as of late. With a major role in Dawn of The Planet of The Apes, and his work as "Dr. Doom" in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, he's well on his way to becoming a household name. The Hollywood Reporter is now sharing news that the actor is in talks to join A Monster Calls.
The film, which all ready includes the talents of Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones, and Sigourney Weaver, is a dark fantastical tale. It centers on a young boy, coping with bullying and a father that's never there, who escapes into a fantastical world at night with the help of a monstrous, talking tree outside of his window (voiced by Neeson).
Kebbell would be playing the boy's father.

Earlier this year, Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones joined the cast of A Monster Calls, an adaptation of the children's fantasy novel by Patrick Ness from director Juan Antonio Bayona. Now THR pegs two more cast members with Sigourney Weaver and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Toby Kebbell joining the story about a young boy dealing with his mother's debilitating illness and the bullying of his classmates by escaping into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales. Neeson is playing the titular monsters who befriends the boy and tells him stories, but the two new cast members will be playing human characters. Weaver will be playing the young boy's no-nonsense grandmother while Kebbell will play his father, who has a history of not being there for the boy. And now we know that Jones will be playing the boy's mother. This sounds like a great fantasy with a strong emotional core, »

You may not know Toby Kebbell, but the actor’s star has been rising steadily over the past ten years. This past summer, he took on the mo-cap role of antagonist Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – but prior to that, the British thesp had earned raves for his parts in Dead Man’s Shoes, Control and RocknRolla. And rest assured, if you currently can’t picture his face, just wait. He’ll play Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s anticipated Fantastic Four reboot, and now we’ve learned that Kebbell is also climbing on board the dark fantasy A Monster Calls.
Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) is directing the adaptation of Patrick Ness’ award-winning children’s book, which was in turn based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd. Bayona, whose past credits also include bone-chilling ghost story The Orphanage, has been putting together »
