Silver Surfer’s Solo Adventure Unlikely, Fantastic Four’s Big Comeback

Is the Silver Surfer Getting his Own Movie?

There’s been a lot of talk about a Silver Surfer film lately. The idea of a superhero surfing across galaxies sounds awesome, doesn’t it? However, there’s a catch. Sadly, we don’t see a Silver Surfer movie heading our way any time soon. The internet has been buzzing due to the casting of starlet Julia Garner in an undisclosed role. Yet, for all the excitement, there’s no solid news of a Silver Surfer spinoff.

Since 2007, there’s been chatter about a possible Silver Surfer movie. After the Fantastic Four sequel, the idea popped up. But the sequel didn’t rock our socks off and Fox had to think hard about making a Silver Surfer movie. By 2009, the excitement for a Silver Surfer flick was cooling down, thanks to Fantastic Four’s lukewarm reception.

Fast forward to 2018, and we were given a glimmer of hope. Brian K. Vaughan hinted that he was working on a Silver Surfer standalone movie. But hope was cut short when Disney and Fox decided to become one big happy family. The Silver Surfer movie, and some other Marvel projects, got the boot during the merger. Recently, rumors surfaced about a possible Silver Surfer movie in 2021. But trustworthy insiders quickly debunked the rumors.

Fantastic Four Returns with a Bang!

While the Silver Surfer movie is currently stuck in the rumor mill, let’s shift our attention to the Fantastic Four reboot confirmed for 25th July 2025. After a couple of less than stellar reboots in 1994 and 2015, the Fantastic Four is ready for another adventure. This time, get ready to see Pedro Pascal, Vanessa Kirby, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Joseph Quinn take on the roles of our favorite superheroes. Kevin Feige, the big boss at Marvel, hinted that the film will be set in a past era. The New York we see won’t look like today’s Big Apple nor like the New York from the swinging sixties.

A Different Marvel Formula

As for the plot, it’s all hush-hush. However, Joseph Quinn, famous for Stranger Things, left us a breadcrumb during an interview. He said the new Fantastic Four movie will take a different route than the typical Marvel adventures. His statement got a lot of fans excited and why wouldn’t they be? We all love the typical Marvel formula, but trying something new and fresh is always appreciated.

As we draw closer to the release date, the excitement builds up among us all. We may not see the Silver Surfer catching cosmic waves anytime soon, but we will be seeing a new interpretation of an old classic with Fantastic Four. So, while Silver Surfer’s big-screen debut may be hanging in the balance, our revamped Fantastic Four will give us a much-needed Marvel fix.

In short, the Silver Surfer film remains a dream while the Fantastic Four reboot is set to be a reality!
