Jamie Bell, who plays The Thing in “Fantastic Four,” said that he wants to see Silver Surfer as the villain in “Fantastic Four 2.” “You can't get away from Silver Surfer. I know chronologically speaking that was the next villain in the previous franchise but I think Silver Surfer is cool looking,” Bell told Comic Book.
The actor also said he would like to see more interaction among “Fantastic Four” characters. “The job of the next film is taking it further and having the characters already established, seeing them interact in the very famous kind of way. Things between me and Johnny get very antagonistic. More of a blossoming love story between Reed and Sue. More of a family dynamic,” he said.
Doug Jones played Silver Surfer in “Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer,” which was released in 2007. He was shown battling the Fantastic Four team and was killed in a massive energy blast. And, in the film’s post-credit scenes, he was shown coming back to life and getting his board back. The film received mixed reviews.
In the Marvel comic book, Silver Surfer is a metallic humanoid, an alien from the planet Zenn-La who can manipulate energy, and navigate space and dimensional barriers on his surfer board. Norrin Radd, his alter ego, made his first appearance in “Fantastic Four” No. 48.
The “Fantastic Four 2” plot is still under wraps. It is scheduled to be released in 2017.
And “Fantastic Four,” which is set to open Friday, revolves around four friends who get teleported to another universe and get superhuman strength. Josh Trank directed the film.
