Possibly one of the biggest disappointments for any comic book fan seeing last year’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer was that the world-devouring entity known as Galactus was barely shown, looking more like a giant storm cloud than the immense being with the spiked headpiece and purple outfit that we’ve come to know and love since his introduction during Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s run on the characters.
Well, have no fear, true believers, because the planned Silver Surfer prequel movie will give the fans what they want, a much better look at Galactus, at least according to the film’s screenwriter, J. Michael Straczynski, who mentioned this at his Wondercon Spotlight panel.
As Newsarama reports from the panel:
For what the Silver Surfer movie entails Straczynski says it will cover the origin of the character. He said it will feature Galactus, noting that the latest Fantastic Four film held off on showing Galactus to reveal him for this film.
Who knows when we might actually see the movie as no director or production start has been announced, but you can read the rest of their report where JMS talks about his other movie and comic book work here.
