Fantastic Four: Ebon Moss-Bachrach Jokes about How He’s been Preparing for The Thing

Ebon Moss-Bachrach has been in The Punisher, Andor, and The Bear, but now he’s set to enter the Marvel mainstage as The Thing for Fantastic Four. We know that he’s going to be a CG Ben Grimm unlike the Michael Chiklis version, and Moss-Bachrach shares how he’s preparing to play the part.

During an appearance on The Daily Show, Moss-Bachrach shared, “I’m playing Ben Grimm, who becomes The Thing, who is a man encased in rock. So, yeah, I don’t know, I’ve just been looking at rocks.”

Joking aside, Moss-Bachrach did add, “I’ve been reading a lot of comics. It’s really nice. They gave me this Marvel Unlimited thing, so I can just go on my iPad, and go to any comic book that Marvel’s ever released.”

Though Moss-Bachrach is mostly expected to provide the voice for The Thing, the officially released poster also confirms that he’s going to be the face of the human Ben Grimm. By the looks of it, he’s also going to be providing the motion capture for the character. Let’s just hope he’s more involved with the process unlike Rocket Raccoon who’s played by two different people (Sean Gunn as the mo-cap stand-in, and Bradley Cooper as the voice).

We don’t know when Marvel is going to give us our next look at Fantastic Four, but everyone is expecting there to be a whole lot of reveals after Deapool and Wolverine hit cinemas.

Catch Fantastic Four in theaters when it releases on July 25, 2025.
