And also, apparently, nakeder. And less penis-ier.
You know, Ben Grimm is a tragic character and all, but … damn, man.
In the “Fantastic Four” comics and movies, there’s usually been an attempt to give the characters a consistent look in their costumes. This was done even for Ben Grimm, who turned into the rocky Thing. Benjamin Grimm usually had trunks on – blue to match the costumes of the other members of the FF – and or sometimes had on a whole jumpsuit-type-thing.
In the new movie, which comes out in August, the Thing apparently doesn’t wear any kind of costume.
And he apparently doesn’t … have … a penis.
I was already pretty uncertain about what I thought about the movie.
Other people have noted this online, but does the Thing in the movie not eat or drink? Does he have any means at all of eliminating waste?
Is Ben Grimm’s longtime girlfriend, Alicia Masters, in the movie?
Are they going to address all this in the storyline?
Okay, now I’m just depressed.
