I must say I am impressed with these initial shots of the cast in their Fantastic 4 attire. The Thing looks waaaay cooler than I thought he would.

Jessica Alba looks great.

Is The Thing's hand broken?

Looks like there was a tear in the costume. They all look cool but The Thing looks small.

I thought Sue Storm would be Sue Richards--she married Reed in the comics, right?
I thought the Reed Richards guy was Jon Stewart at first.

Was hoping The Thing would be a little closer to the comic version....we'll see how it plays in the film...

Thing just looks like Michael Chiklis chiselled out of rock. I know we don't want the guy totally disguised, but he's supposed to be pretty fucking big 'n' bouldery, ya know? Where's his uber-pronounced brow, for instance?

Yeah, but I don't think that came on until later. At the start of the movie she's Dr. Doom's plaything.

I like the Thing changes. Makes him a little more humanized.
I do want to see the Torch on fire.

The Thing supposedly looks more like the original Jack Kirby design now (don't know if that's what the producers were going for or if it just made for an easier costume) ... And that Jessica Alba pic REALLY makes me pine for some "Dark Angel" reruns.

Am I the only one disturbed by the fact that Johnny Storm looks older than Reed Richards?

The non-blonde Johnny Storm and Thing's small brow are just fanboy details. I myself can't wait to see Torch flame on.

Think he'll actually say 'Flame on!' ? :P

From comicscontinuum.com:
[Chiklis] did not want the role if The Thing was going to be a CG character.

"I felt that I would be wasted," he said. "I was assured from the get-go that that wasn't going to be the case, and I was thrilled. They would use some CGI enhancements in creating nuances"

I'm guessing the brow would be one of those nuances.

Would you want *your* name attached to a potential bomb and then end up having almost nothing to do with the portrayal of your character? If they did it like the CGI Hulk there'd be almost nothing for him to do except voice-over. And there are plenty of good voice actors they could hire instead.

Exactly. Chiklis is one helluva fantastic actor. One of the best bad asses right now. He was most likely chosen for this reason - so why would the producers NOT want to use his strengths in the film? I'm not a comic book fan, but because of Chiklis and the cool look to the costumes, I'm looking forward to this.
