Fantastic Four 2: Galactus In But Not Yet Designed?

galactus Fantastic Four 2: Galactus In But Not Yet Designed?It seems that a previous quote by Ioan Gruffudd (who plays Mr. Fantastic) stating that Galactus would not be appearing in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer seems to have been incorrect. Whether this was by design or ignorance, I don’t know. Considering that the Silver Surfer is the herald of Galactus, it seemed odd to me that the big guy wouldn’t be in the film… especially with the sound bite in the latest commercial where they say that eight days after the Silver Surfer shows up on a world, it’s destroyed.

But today, posted on Tim Story’s Myspace blog:

“We haven’t finished the design of him/it so be careful about what you read and believe. Trust me…no one knows. One things for sure, you can expect to see him/it. It will be pretty powerful. I’m having a lot of fun with the concept and believe me – MOST will be satisfied.”

A couple of things come to mind:

1. COOL!

2. It will probably only be a “cameo”, or else he would have figured more prominently in the title of the film and the ad campaign.

3. The film is 3 1/2 months away from opening and they’re still working on the design?

Number three above is a bit scary and leads me to believe that there will not be much screen time for the Devourer of Worlds. I would imagine he’ll be CGI as it takes a lot of time to render photorealistic characters.

Overall I’m a bit excited to see this sequel because I’m hoping that it will be better than the first one, which was pretty weak.

  1. Weak is not the word for the original FF, lets not go there. The FF sequel looks to follow X-men 2 in the fact that it will totally overshadow the orig. or at least let’s hope so. Thanks for being out there Vic and Brian, I always look forward to reading what you guys have to say.

  2. Thanks bud, I appreciate that. :-)


  3. Galactus in Fantastic Four – Rise of the Silver Surfer, contrordine, forse ci sarà

    Qualche giorno fa avevo scritto quanto ritenessi improbabile la presenza di Galactus in Fantastic Four – Rise of the Silver Surfer. Ma ScreenRant, che segue attentamente il blog del regista del film (Tim Story) su MySpace ha segnalato oggi un…

  4. i like what u say but i think it will be a great film and lets get real ff the first film was not tht fantastic

  5. Baganoth,

    I certainly hope you’re right!


  6. What concerns me about the sequel is the actual height of Galactus. Now! Galactus destroys worlds for its abundance of energy. In the comic books hes massive. After all, if he really is the “Devourer of Worlds” what would be his actual height as portrait in the comic!!!!
