Well, Variety has spilled the beans on a possible Fantastic Four 2 character addition as the Silver Surfer might make an appearance depending on which script Fox decides on.
I am not a comic book guy so I don’t know a whole lot about this fellow, but Variety says that he physically resembles the liquid metal villain from Terminator 2 and soars through the universe on his board, has evolved into one of Marvel’s more sophisticated comicbook heroes.
We have all heard Silver Surfer talk before, but the studio has held off on the feature due to the amount of special effects necessary to bring the character to live.
For those of you anxious to see the wave-rider the time may be near as the Fantastic Four 2 storyline is being finalized and the decision comes down to X2 scribe Mark Frost’s script and Don Payne’s script. Payne’s script features the Surfer and he is also the screenwriter that penned Fox’s My Super Ex-Girlfriend for the studio due out this summer.
Variety sources report that Payne’s script is the frontrunner, yet the studio spokesman denied that anything was set as Fox wants to be sure a guest-starring stint doesn’t wash out future feature plans.
Fantastic Four 2 is currently slated for a July 4, 2007 release.
