‘Silver Surfer’ Is Getting His Own Standalone Marvel Movie
He won’t have the Fantastic Four in his way.
He is the humanoid superhero with silver skin who speeds through the air on a metallic surfboard, seemingly affixed to his body.
The report also mentioned a standalone Doctor Doom movie is coming out as well as six new X-Men movies by 2020, although this news was already known,
There is a chance the Silver Surfer will be a more family-friendly superhero, unlike the foul-mouthed Deadpool and more like the Fantastic Four movies of a decade ago.
And hopefully nothing like the recent Fantastic Four…
The Hollywood Reporter notes that filmmakers and execs at Marvel Studios have anxieties over “Disney’s aversion to R-rated superhero movies that Fox has championed.”
The script for Silver Surfer is currently being developed by Brian K. Vaughan, co-creator of Saga, Y: The Last Man and Runaways.
