A new way of getting around town

USA Today has an article today, complete with photo, on the Fantasticar that moviegoers will see when “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” hits theaters next summer. It’s a lot sleeker than the old bathtub-like Fantasticar seen in the comics.

Tim Flattery, conceptual artist for the film, told USA Today he looked for inspiration from the sea, basing the Fantasticar design on manta rays and stingrays. “They have a natural flow and grace,” he told the paper. “We wanted something that looked like it could glide as easily as they do."
