The only thing I liked about “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” was that the character of the Silver Surfer was awesome. And, with the news of Fantastic Four being rebooted one of things I was wondering was the status of the Silver Surfer Spin-off. In an interview with Collider J. Michael Stracyzinski was asked about the status of the film:
“When I was asked about the Silver Surfer script, I responded about the one I’d written around the time that FF2 was launched, and was designed to pick up where that one left off.”
“When FF2 didn’t do as well as hoped for, that script was set aside, but that has NOTHING to do with the Silver Surfer script that is NOW under development at Fox with other folks. As far as I know, that is proceeding apace. So the hysteria that’s gripped the nets about “ohmygod the Surfer movie is dead!” is not correct, as I was again referring to only that one specific script tied into FF2, NOT what’s being done now.”
This is nothing to get too excited over, but it does gives the fans some hope. Yes, we will have to wait and see what happens with the Fantastic Four reboot and when they will introduce that character to the franchise. And as far as I know Doug Jones still shows interest in portraying the character, which is cool.
Its also good news because we know eventually we will get to see a good adaptation of Galactus(I hope). One of the things I hated was that they turned him into a cloud(with a cool shadow of his signature helmet). That may of been how it was in the comics, but that doesn’t matter to me.
What do you think about a Silver Surfer Spin-off?
