What the King of Marvel says, goes, and he says that there is definitely a future for a Silver Surfer movie. Comic legend Stan Lee says there is “no way,” the Fantastic Four character that he created with Jack Kirby will not get his own solo movie.
At Wizard World Comic Con, Lee told MTV Geek that “Back at Marvel, they are frantically looking for what is the next one they’re going to do,” reports DigitalSpy. “There is no way they won’t eventually do a Silver Surfer movie,” he added.
This is why we all love Marvel. They are always cooking up something new to look forward to. With more Avengers, Thor, and Captain America to come, Marvel has its work cut out for them. Not to mention, Robert Downey Jr. has signed on for yet another Iron Man. A Silver Surfer movie would be the cherry on the cake. Unsurprisingly, with everything else Marvel has in store for us; a Silver Surfer movie would be released later, rather than sooner.
”It may not be for a few years because they’re thinking and working on Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Ant-Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Everything we have. And the fans seem to want all of them. But they’ll get around to a Silver Surfer feature because he’s a wonderful character,” Lee said, reports Digital Spy.
Yeah, thanks Stan the man for just adding another list of superhero movies for us to be pumped for.
20th Century Fox currently controls the rights to the Rights to the Silver Surfer film.
The character was last seen on screen in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. The character was portrayed by Doug Jones and voiced by Laurence Fishburne in the poorly-received 2007 movie.
The Fantastic Four installment is also set to return to screens, as a reboot film is presently in the works under the direction of Chronicle’s Josh Trank .
