We may have a first look at the logo for the Fantastic Four movie as well as a few details.
The info comes from a user on Reddit who claims to do work for Fox and also posted the following.
The relevant posts have since been deleted, but someone posted them on IMDB.
Potential spoilers follow.
My name is…well, you can refer to me as Mr. Blue if you wish.
I’m an employee at 20th Century Fox, and I usually specialize in editing. I help make rough cuts of movies before they get sent off for finalization. Anyway, a few months ago I was contacted to work on the 2nd rough cut for Fox’s Fantastic Four movie. I was pretty excited because I’m a big fan of the characters, and even though the movie didn’t sound great… I was still looking forward to seeing it.
The movie itself wasn’t all bad – it feels like Chronicle 2, which isn’t a bad thing. It manages to keep the basis of the characters despite the race change for Johnny and the uh… original love story between two of the characters (I won’t mention who). Since I’m a fan, I decided to take a picture of the logo shown during the end credits for the fans. If this were any other scenario, I would have used a screenshot… however they trace our computers at work, so I had to be sneaky and use my cell phone.
I hope you like this small glimpse of the movie, and I will try to leak more info for y’all in the future. 🙂
Thanks for posting this.
The love story’s between Johnny and Ben, isn’t it?
No problem! I hate how Fox have been keeping you guys in the dark about the reboot, it’s wrong. They have no reason to be so secretive, seriously.
LoL! No, it is not.
Any info you can share on Domaschev?
He’s an internet blogger and a programmer who works for Dr. Storm at the Baxter Institute. However, after he gets his powers he becomes closer to the classic 616 Doom in personality. There are many hints towards him becoming ruler of Latveria in the future.
Is his look from the leaked set photos basically what he looks like in the movie?

Pretty much. There’s gonna be some CG enhancements, obviously. But it’s more or less the same.
Towards the end of the movie, he tells the Four that he can do “good” with his power and help his homeland.
How’s the CGI of The Thing? How much of the movie takes place in the Negative Zone?
The CGI wasn’t finished yet, given that it’s a rough cut… but design wise, he looks fine. Very Thing-like.
The first half of the second act and the final battle. I’d guess around 30 minutes in total is spent in the Negative Zone (referred to as Dimension N in the movie itself).
Cool, thanks for answering. I have one last question if you don’t mind…
Why do you think Fox is being so secretive about this movie? Is there anything completely terrible about the film that would make Fox be hesitant about marketing it?
I really have no idea! In my personal opinion, the movie isn’t a complete trainwreck – it’s a genuinely good movie.
I guess they don’t want to piss off the die-hard fans, but I really don’t know.
