Bohemian Rhapsody Star Reportedly Eyed For McU’s Silver Surfer

Bohemian Rhapsody Star Reportedly Eyed For McU’s Silver Surfer
The Fantastic Four are definitely coming to the McU in the next few years, but Marvel are no doubt also going to make use of the wider collection of characters from that corner of the comic book universe that they just got from Fox. At the top of the pile is Silver Surfer, who was previously brought to live-action in 2007’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, but general audiences have mostly forgotten about that by now. That may be why the studio is feeling confident enough in the hero to give him his own solo movie.

This is something that’s been reported before, of course, but now insider Mikey Sutton is saying that his sources are pointing to the project finally being in the works. Building on what other outlets have had to say, Sutton’s also revealed that he’s heard that none other than Rami Malek

Why The 2005 Fantastic Four Movie Isn’t As Bad As You Think

Wind the clocks back to 2005 and you’ll remember a little superhero movie called Fantastic Four. It starred Ioan Gruffudd as Mr. Fantastic, Jessica Alba as The Invisible Woman, Chris Evans as The Human Torch, and Michael Chiklis as The Thing. The movie met with mixed reviews, but became quite the summer blockbuster, grossing over 300 million dollars against a 100 million dollar budget. This allowed it to spawn a sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which wasn’t so lucky with the box office. The series ended there, and there was that reboot from 2015, but that won’t

20 Things Wrong With Captain America We All Choose To Ignore

When Chris Evans was announced as Captain America for the characters first major movie role, fans all over the world freaked out. The actor was known at that time for his role as Johnny Storm, aka The Human Torch, in the failed Fantastic 4 and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. No one really thought he had what it took to fill the shoes of one of the biggest comic icons of all time.

Boy was everyone wrong.

Evans has proven time and time again that he was the perfect choice for the character. He brings out the best in Steve Rogers. His compassion, sense of honor, and courage are all on display in every scene with the actor. The problem is that Evans can be so good in the role that we often lose sight of some of the character's flaws.

The McU take on Captain America is fairly straight forward.

Monopoly Movie Sets Kevin Hart as Star, Tim Story to Direct

Joseph Baxter Jan 17, 2019

Kevin Hart will star in board game movie Monopoly, with Fantastic Four director Tim Story behind the camera.

Monopoly has just acquired the proverbial Marvin Gardens of a Hollywood movie treatment. While, Hasbro’s iconic board game, in which players aim to achieve financial domination one dice roll at a time, has been the focus of movie plans for quite some time, Lionsgate is finally moving forward with the project, having nabbed a headliner and director.

Kevin Hart is set to star in the Monopoly movie, and he’ll be directed by helmer with whom he has history in Tim Story, reports Deadline. Indeed, Story was the director of signature movies for the comedy superstar, Hart, such as the two Ride Along films and the two Think Like a Man films. Moreover, genre fans will know Story’s work from the previous film franchise iteration of Marvel

Russo Bros. Say Don’t Expect the Silver Surfer to Glide into ‘Infinity War’

Before he was a Fishman, Doug Jones performed the space-surfin' subtitle character of 2007's much maligned Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Performing the actual dialogue for the Herald of Galactus, however, was Laurence Fishburne, a recent addition to the McU proper who will make his debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp. The Marvel Comics character is still well and truly owned by 20th Century Fox, despite the fact that Fox and Disney are in the midst of merger negotiations. However, according to a Metacritic listing, some fans got fired up about the possibility of Silver …

Higher Power Trailer Showcases Incredible VFX On A Budget

A trailer has been released for forthcoming science fiction thriller, Higher Power, which showcases visual effects far beyond the movie’s modest budget. Higher Power marks the directorial debut of Matthew Charles Santoro, a visual effects artist who has previously worked on the likes of 300, X-Men: The Last Stand and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Unfortunately, Santoro hasn’t been afforded the luxury of a superhero-sized budget to craft Higher Power and, as a result, has put together most of the movie’s visual effects by his own hand. After several years in development, Higher Power is finally complete and has been picked up by Magnolia.

Is Laurence Fishburne Returning as Silver Surfer in the McU?

Is Laurence Fishburne Returning as Silver Surfer in the McU?
Could Laurence Fishburne be making a return to the role of the Silver Surfer, but for the McU this time? Even just a month ago, this idea would have sounded pretty insane, but Disney recently purchased most of 21st Century Fox, which includes all of 20th Century Fox. Along with that, the rights to the Fantastic Four, X-Men and yes, Silver Surfer. So the idea of the character showing up in the McU at some point isn't totally crazy. But will it happen and, more importantly, will it be Fishburne playing the part? A new theory suggests it's in the works.

The theory comes from Reddit user atxknicks and, in light of recent events, doesn't seem too far-fetched. We know that Laurence Fishburne is going to play Bill Foster/Goliath in Ant-Man and the Wasp. That's a done deal. But who's to say he couldn't also play Silver Surfer? Vin Diesel

Is Laurence Fishburne Returning As Silver Surfer In The McU?

As Morpheus in The Matrix movies, Laurence Fishburne crossed the divide between the real world and virtual reality. Nowadays, he’s doing something similar once again – by having a foot in both the Marvel and DC superhero universes. From 2013’s Man of Steel onward, Fishburne plays Perry White, the chief of the Daily Planet, in the Dceu. Beginning with 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp though, the actor will appear in the McU, too, as the giant-sized superhero Bill Foster/Goliath.

Just because he’s not enough of a sci-fi/geek icon already though, Fishburne recently revealed that he has another project with Marvel in the bag. According to him, it’s something he pitched to the studio himself which he hopes will “change the world.” However, it has encountered some problems, with “a lot of legal red tape” preventing it from moving ahead right away.

What Doug Jones’ creature in The Shape of Water has in common with Silver Surfer

Doug Jones looks different in every movie. That’s because he’s usually playing the creature. Though they don’t share super powers, Jones’ aquatic man in The Shape of Water bears some similarities to a superhero he’s played. “[Guillermo del Toro] said, ‘Dougie, I want you to give me a little bit of Silver Surfer,’” Jones said. “The Silver Surfer was a godlike, strong, angelic being and then it had an inner strength and a quiet heroic heroism about him.” Jones played the Silver Surfer in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. But if Jones were just Silver Surfer underwater, that...read more

X-Men Producer Wants to Bring Mutants Into the Marvel Movie Universe

X-Men Producer Wants to Bring Mutants Into the Marvel Movie Universe
20th Century Fox has maintained control of the X-Men franchise for almost 20 years, since the first X-Men hit theaters in 2000, but lately there has been talk of the mutants finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While nothing is set in stone yet, there has been talk all month that Disney is negotiating to buy 20th Century Fox, a deal that would put the 20th Century Fox Marvel properties like X-Men and Fantastic Four under the same roof as Marvel, but what would longtime X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner think about her beloved franchise joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Here's what she had to say during a recent interview.

"Well, I wish. I would love it, I would love it. But it's not for me to say."

If this deal does actually happen, it will mark a reunion between Lauren Shuler Donner and her former protege, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

From 'Shape of Water' to Silver Surfer: How Doug Jones Created His Creatures

From 'Shape of Water' to Silver Surfer: How Doug Jones Created His Creatures
Doug Jones can clearly recall his first day filming The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro's hand-crafted aquatic fairy tale in which the 57-year-old actor plays a nameless amphibian man who falls for Sally Hawkins' mute cleaning lady in 1960s Baltimore. "We started with a scene in which … I'm chained to a cement block on my knees and being tortured and prodded by Michael Shannon," Jones says. "My first day on set was going through the makeup and costume process, then ending up on my knees on concrete

James Gunn Reportedly Working On Guardians Of The Galaxy Spinoffs

With 20 unannounced McU films apparently in the pipeline over the next decade or so, Marvel Studios are going to have to dig deep to find some unused heroes to bring to life on the silver screen. One potential place they can start though is the expansive cosmic side of the Marvel Universe, and who better to act as guide to that weird and wonderful place than Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn?

Today, Vanity Fair published a fascinating profile on studio head Kevin Feige, complete with a wide-ranging interview about the future of the McU. It was here that Feige talked about the need for the franchise to stay fresh and keep introducing new characters and concepts. After all, if we’d stuck with earth-level conflicts, we’d have never gotten the wonderful Guardians films and the breath of fresh air that was Thor: Ragnarok.

‘The Shape of Water’ Star Doug Jones: Beneath Foam and Latex, a Best Actor Candidate Shines

‘The Shape of Water’ Star Doug Jones: Beneath Foam and Latex, a Best Actor Candidate Shines
In his seven weeks of shooting “The Shape of Water,” the film’s male lead, Doug Jones, could not grasp a doorknob, send a text message, breathe through his mouth, or go to the bathroom while in costume. His call time to the Toronto set was a “mercifully short” three hours earlier than co-stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, and Octavia Spencer.

Each morning, four people armed with K-y Jelly shoehorned him into a latex, foam, and rubber bodysuit, built from a cast of his six-foot-three, 140-pound frame. Then came webbed-fingered gloves (glued on), following by a neck and fiberglass helmet, which featured built-in buzzing, whirring mechanics to puppeteer his gills off camera. Once dressed, barely able to see or hear, Jones was required at various times to hang from a hip harness, stand on a smoke-bathed teeter-totter to simulate bobbing in water, and employ scuba diving techniques while acting in a flooded,

In just a couple of weeks, Star Trek will return to television for the first time in over a decade with the anticipated new series, Star Trek: Discovery. Set roughly a decade before The Original Series, the new series will explore the Federation’s growing influence in the galaxy as well as the difficult trials they have to face, particularly with the Klingon Empire.

At the Fan Expo convention in Toronto this past weekend, Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Issacs, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Shazad Latif and Kenneth Mitchell of the cast sat down with writer/producer Ted Sullivan in a panel to discuss what led them to the new series and how it would honour the legacy of Gene Roddenberry and the franchise.

Stan Lee wants a Silver Surfer movie, discusses his favourite Marvel cameo

Stan Lee is set to be honoured in Beverly Hills this coming Tuesday at a star-studded event entitled Extraordinary: Stan Lee, and SyFy Wire caught up with the Marvel legend to discuss the upcoming celebration of his life and work, during which Lee revealed which of his characters he’d most like to see in their own movie.

“[Silver Surfer] is the one I want to see more,” said Lee, acknowledging that fans weren’t entirely enthused by Norrin Radd’s appearance in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. “He’s the most philosophical of all the characters I’ve ever worked on. And I have an idea for my cameo in that one!”

Lee also went on to discuss his favourite Marvel cameo, joking that: “Oh yeah, my favorite is when I’m drinking with Thor in [Avengers: Age of Ultron]. When I was with him at the bar and he was drinking a strong drink from Asgard.

Stan Lee Wants Silver Surfer Gets His Own Movie More Than Any Other Character

There are a ton of characters in the Marvel universe. A lot of the more popular characters currently have their own films and TV series, but that that doesn't mean there isn't room for a few more. Marvel Studios, Fox, and Sony are all mostly playing with the same characters that they've been playing with for years. It'd be nice to see some other heroes and villains from Marvel's lineup get the spotlight.

Stan Lee knows who he would like to see make his way to the big screen! During an interview with Syfy Wire, he revealed that he would like to see Silver Surfer get his own movie more than any character. He explains:

Silver Surfer Movie Needs to Happen Insists Stan Lee

Silver Surfer Movie Needs to Happen Insists Stan Lee
Stan Lee is the Mickey Mouse of Marvel, and has appeared in nearly every big screen outing he had some kind of hand in helping push forward. He's Marvel Studios favorite mascot. And in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it was revealed that he's been playing The Watchers' Informant in every McU movie thus far. So it makes sense that he'd want a Silver Surfer movie to happen. It would give him a chance to expand that role. He does have his cameo planned out, if that ever comes to be. And he insists it should. Even if Marvel doesn't currently own the rights to the character.

Stan Lee recently caught up with SyfyWire.com to chat about his life and times as the comic book industry's favorite son. And he truly believes that Silver Surfer deserves a second change at big screen stardom. He's well aware of how

Stan Lee Wants to See A Silver Surfer Movie

We live in a wonderful time. Yes, for decades now, we’ve seen a lot of the big superheroes get their due in movie theaters, but nowadays, the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, Suicide Squad, and Nightwing either already have their own movies or are set to get their own soon. We’ve become so permeated with these films that studios are starting to think outside the box for their next big budget properties. While we’ve had a good number of relatively obscure heroes hit the big screen, there are still plenty who are due for their own films.

One hero that Marvel godfather Stan Lee would like to see lead his own feature is that of the Silver Surfer, as he revealed in an interview with Syfy — especially after the character was given a bit of a disservice in the film Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Marvel’s Runaways casts Julian McMahon

It looks like Julian McMahon will be returning to the Marvel universe. The actor has been cast in Marvel’s upcoming Hulu series Runaways as a man named Jonah. While his origins and ultimate intentions are unknown, McMahon will be a pivotal player in the Runaways’ rebellion against their parents.

McMahon is known for his roles in Nip/Tuck and Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, but Marvel fans will also know him as Victor Von Doom, better known as Doctor Doom, in Fantastic Four and its sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
