A Silver Surfer Movie Is In Development
Marvel cosmic universe is continuing to expand and does it with a Silver Surfer-movie in the developments.
Jack Kirby created Silver Surfer, also known as Norrin Radd, debuted in Fantastic Four #48. With that debut, he has made an appearance in Fantastic Four, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy and even joining the original Defenders. The only entrance he has in a live-action movie was Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He was then played by Doug Jones and voiced by Laurence Fishburne.
Adam McKay, director of The Big Short (2015) expressed interest that he wanted to do a solo movie on the character:
“Silver Surfer is the one I want to do, man. I would do anything to do Silver Surfer because, visually, you could do what the Wachowskis did with Speed Racer with the Silver Surfer,” McKay said. “At the same time, there’s a great emotional story in there, man, where Norrin Radd [Silver Surfer] has to make the choice to save his planet. That would be the one, but I think Fox owns the rights …”
Mackans Film has previously reported that Galactus and Tyrant might join the upcoming phases for Marvels expanded cosmic universe. Since the Silver Surfer is a strong connection to these big characters, it would make sense to make this happen for real.
