Is the Thing officially stone these days? Kirby originally intended his skin to be like dinosaur hide.

Not sure about gritty or grim but the FF was grounded in a sense. In addition to monsters, aliens and villains they also had to battle everyday problems like getting evicted or going broke.

About a year ago, more, Valeria (Hickman) invented a potion that altered the Thing's Biology so that he becomes human for one day every year... But I have never heard that he is leather before. This seems quite odd to me.

Comic Book Legends covered it, scroll down to find the piece on the Thing.

Oh, of course I believe you, and of course I believe Kirby said that because you said Kirby said that... But I'm also kinda sure that everyone else in the last 50 years has thought that he was made of rock, right down to Mallrats...

[Upon meeting Stan Lee]
Brodie: The Thing! Is his dork made out of orange rock like the rest of his body?
Stan Lee: I don't know. It's a superhero secret.

I know I did. I was just wondering if there was an actual "confirmation" in the comics that Ben's skin was rocky.

The 60s Marvel cartoons... You know how south park animation is more like pupeteering than animation? That's what they did, they took cut outs from real marvel comics with a boxcutter, and then just stop motioned the comic art while super imposing animated mouths and blinking eyes


That said, it remains the most faithful adaptation of any Marvel comic source to date. The drama through voice work and the grand Capitol/KPM library music was a perfect fit for the stories--making MSM one of the few times where a production did not take broad liberties with the source, or suffer the nightmare of bad casting, etc.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

Here's an interview where Kinberg clarifies the tone of the movie:

http://www.craveonline.com/film/arti...fantastic-four
It’s a much more grounded, gritty, realistic movie than the last couple movies. If I had to say, the tone of it would be somewhere on the spectrum between Spider-Man and Chronicle. The other movies were even further on the spectrum of being goofy and fun than Spider-Man.


Raimi Spider-Man?

Raimi Spider-Man, yeah, not Amazing Spider-Man. Josh Trank’s instincts are to be as realistic and grounded and real with this stuff as possible. In many ways I would say it’s definitely more of a drama than comedy.


Is that true to the comic books, because Fantastic Four is one of the lighter Marvel books?

It’s still in the direction of Spider-Man. It’s not like Dark Knight. And even Chronicle has a lot of fun in it. We’re treating this as the origin of the Fantastic Four so in future movies you’d have them on sort of splashier adventures to some extent but in this one we tried to ground the science as much as possible and make it feel like it could take place in our world before it cantilevers into other worlds.
That's somewhat more reassuring. Grounded but with a sense of fun. And starting out with a feel more like our world before expanding into the wilder stuff is pretty much the same strategy the MCU used to considerable success.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

Considering the Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver loophole that seems to be being exploited today and tomorrow, you would think that they would be looking for other exploitable twofers... To some people, the Fantastic Four is the Hulk, Spider-Man , Wolverine and Ghost Rider.

Hey, that's Sony, Marvel and 20th century fox working together or against each other!

How could that ever end up as anything less than a clusterfuck of backstabbing and spite?

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

Hulk, GR, Spidey and Wolverine only appeared as the FF for that one 2-3 arc story right?
Was that ever duplicated, even once? Cause I find it funny even Marvel refers to that as an official iteration of the team.

That's picture is a little old now. Ghost Rider is back with Marvel. Though I doubt we'll see Johnny Blaze show up in the MCU anytime soon.

There have been several meet ups since then, randomly spread across the entire Marvel spectrum.

Probably not, though it's possible that they'll use the likes of him or even Blade alongside Dr Strange, to create a supernatural sort of environment.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

They don't even have to use all of him.

Just have flaming tire tracks criss crossing all their movies and never explain it.

Oh!

In the comics, the new Ghost Rider, even though the old Ghost Rider is hanging out in Red Hulk's Thunderbolts, but the new Ghost Rider drives a ghost car with four flaming wheels.

Makes you wonder what other vehicles a ghost rider can ride?

A Ghost Helicopter with flaming rotor blades would be fantastic but imagine how ridiculous a Ghostjetski or a Ghostsnowmobile would be?

How about Ghost Rider starts working for SHIELD and he rides around in a Ghostheliccarier?
