Default Galactus - yet another realistic approach

As we know, the Fantastic Four reboot is being called "dark & gritty version", which often corresponds "realistic" (Nolanism).

Seeing how Galactus wasn't translated directly from comic to film in 2007's Rise of the Silver Surfer for realism's sake (rather showing a big cloud instead), one can only wonder how Fox will ruin this important character once again in the reboot series.

So, just for the fun of it, I was thinking about how to use Galactus again and make him even more "realistic", so he can fit the dark & gritty reboot better.

What if Galactus is actually an intergalactic rogue-organization called G.A.L.A.C.T.U.S. that exploits other planet's energy? I even came up with a full name for it:

Assembly for
Attainment of
Core energy from

Their space craft and energy-exploiting machinery would resemble Galactus' appearance from the comics. It would be a massice space ship, floating over earth!

Remember: This is not to be taken seriously I'm just trying to trigger your ideas for a new interpretation of Galactus that would fit the new series.

There's no way they do Galactus. No way, just no way.

A morbidly obese, perpetually hungry recluse who gets his minion to rob food stores to sustain his eating habits. This minion will of course be bald and have a silver getaway car, and might talk like a "surfer dude" if we are lucky.

You look upset. I like that.

He's a giant swarm of intergalactic locusts.


He doesn't destroy planets. But is really a cousin to the tooth fairy who roams the universe stealing odd socks. The fantastic 4 have to battle him after he steals Ben Grimms special sock, that he uses to masturbate. As no-one can make a sock strong enough anymore to withstand a cosmic powered ejaculation.

I think they should save him for the 3rd film!

Agreed. Hope they tease Annihlus in this movie for use in the sequel

Galactus isn't something you can fight so making him look like the comics isn't the problem.

So if he movie always ends in a stalemate, who do the FF actually fight?

Is it worth getting worked up into a nice frothy rage? Not a chance. Not a chance in hell.
