No torch though , lookin not so bad
I also found this one of Dr Doom.
Ahhhhh nothing like what he should be he looks more like the Green Goblin whith a hood.
I just got through to the picture Haji, after a lot of tries last night, Sue and Reed look good but The Thing could have done with a bit more padding and a bit more prosthetic on his face.
ideally Ron Pearlman as The Thing maybe? Just also noticed the lack of white flecks on Reed's hair.
Wheres number 4?, photo studio lights too hot for him?.
I see the guy of Nip/Tuck Julian McMahon is Doom.
This is what Dr Doom sould look more like metal not the plastic thing above.

I saw these pics a while back. My biggest gripe being that Reed and Johnny look the same age. (there's a pic of Johnny from the same series somewhere) Oh, and according AICN, they've completely ruined Dr. Doom. He's the only reason I'd want to see this, so it looks like I'll pass on this one.
There should be a good age gap between the two of them. The Character Reed Richards served in the O.S.S. during World War II and the first Issue of FF came out in 1961 so I would say Reed is at least 40. Whereas Johnny Storm is Sues kid brother and was in his teens when he first appeared in FF1 so thats at least 22 years between them.
Despite that I will see the reviews and may still go. The tinkered a bit with the X-Men but made a extremely fine job of both of them.
You have to remember that certain things which look good in the comics simply wouldn't work on film. You may not like the changes but most of the time they are next necessary.
And from what I saw on the Fox promotional video, which was leaked a few weeks back, all four characters look pretty good. It also appeared that Ioan Gruffudd had been aged in someway (although that might have been a poorly rendered CGI animatic!)
The Green Goblin looked terrible in the movie, Dr Doom is suppose to be behind a metal armour it also makes him look more menacing.
As to aging Ioan Gruffudd, putting those grey or silver streaks would add to it.
They changed somthings in X-Men and it worked, they changed somethings in Catwoman and it looked tacky.
The guy in the middle of those pictures is Johnny Storm i.e. The Human Torch. I have seen some pictures of Reed Richards and he does have grey/silver in his hair although not as pronounced as in the comics. It is more or less on his sideburns.
The promo photos don't look that impressive and if I remember correctly the reaction to the first X-Men photos was the same.
But I found the leaked footage more impressive. I think it's still hanging around on bittorrent somewhere.
Here is a group shoot.
