Scooper ‘kuhlaiyen’ caught some of the Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer action in Vancouver this weekend:
On Saturday morning on the 9th of September 2006 in Vancouver BC at Granville and Pender, I saw some interesting Fantastic 4 sequel production going on. It’s not uncommon to see filming around here, but I became interested when I saw some people “discreetly” handling a prosthetic mask of the Thing! Then I saw Michael Chiklis, the Thing himself. He wasn’t “Thing” at the time, just in his street clothes. The man is short! Then I saw a silver/grey Dodge Ram truck being hoisted into the air by a crane. Pretty cool stuff, but sadly no Jessica Alba 🙁
‘KalEl1949’ also witnessed the filming and said:
I was downtown on Pender on Saturday when I got to watch filming of the Fantastic Four sequel. They started with a clip of Johnny Storm and The Thing coming out of a cake shop with two wedding cakes. The Thing’s car is blocked by vans in front and behind so he hands the cakes to Johnny and lifts the car out of the spot and tosses it onto the road. It took a few hours to film all of this but it was definatly quite a sight to see The Thing in full costume, it looks like they’ve make his brow thicker.
Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer is coming to theaters on June 15, 2007.
