"Turn" Series Premiere

The release of the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot is only a few months away, and now, fans have their first look at actor Jamie Bell as The Thing.

Empire premiered the image, which features an unrecognizable Bell clad in the character's signature rocky shell. It's a striking look, and his serious expression seems to go hand-in-hand with the name of the hero's alter ego, Ben Grimm.

Check out the image below, and head over to Empire for a few more sneak peek photos from the flick.
