    When the Surfer comes to the MCU, do you want to see a more traditional representation, and I'm more of a traditionalist, or new concepts regarding his look and characteristics?

    What do you think of concepts like this?

    I found some of the ideas from this concept interesting:

    I liked the description of the designer: And the biggest change of all, obviously, came with designing his board. I wanted to see if i could make it less of an object and more like an extension of the power cosmic, so, I had the idea that he crafted a small perpetual motion engine out of the startdust and physics required to operate a small baby galaxy. In a way, this has a cool logic too it, you’re an all powerful space herald, why not stand atop something as NATURALLY traversing as a galaxy when hopping from glalaxy to galaxy? I also like to think it’d make a really great weapon for him, as he steps off the “board” he can command it’s size and strength, creating gale storms of cosmic power no one quite has the power to stop.

    No to that armoured looking Surfer. He shouldn't look like a silver version of Iron Man. I want him to look fully organic.

    The more they try to add their own touch to the classic look, the worse it becomes. Simple is best. He doesn't need any extra design. Just a silver man, that's all.

    While Fishburne did a good job voicing him and Doug Jones doing the mocap last time, who do you want for him now?

    Anyone can mo-cap him like they did with the Black Order.

    But as for his voice, and possible facial expressions, I'm not sure. It depends on what they're going for. I don't know if they want someone with a deep, booming voice or someone who sounds more relatable.

    Possibly unpopular opinion incoming... How about a mostly practical Norrin? At the end of the day he's just a silver dude, and the Sovereign looked pretty good in GotG 2.

    I preferred how Silver Surfer looked after he lost his sheen in ROTSS. He was still silver, but didn't look like he was just a CGI creation. That reflective silver made him too artificial looking. I don't mind a duller silver as he was when he was captured in the lab and the FF had to help him escape. He looked more realistic and relatable instead of looking like a Poser model.

    I want John Lee Miller doing a mocap performance.

    Honestly, with how much the CGI improved nowadays, and with ILM, I bet they could make something much more convicning and amazing.

    I’m a big fan of that melted mercury sort of look. It’s perfect for the triply psychedelic contrast I reckon

    Please appear in GOTG along with Thor, so they can help explore the cosmic universe.

    Umm, if Ant-Man merits his own film, then Silver Surfer sure as **** does.

    So true. And make no mistake, I do like Ant-Man/Giant Man/Yellowjacket and Wasp!

    You know, I was listening to Christopher Lee’s heavy metal albums today and I couldn’t stop thinking what a shame it is we will never see him play Galactus. That would have been wonderful.

    But maybe such an iconic voice would have been distracting?

    They could always get Patrick Stewart to do a Locutus of Borg voice and be Galactus.

    It would be super weird hearing Charles Xavier as the destroyer of worlds lol.

    Nah he’s happy with his bees right now

    Well how about Liam Neeson then? "I will find you, and I will eat you."

    Haha that would be awesome. Or his Star Wars costar Ewan McGregor.

    *Galactus pops up*: “Hello there!”

    Been a long time since I've posted here! Can't believe that, with the deal basically done, Silver Surfer, Galactus and company will be part of the MCU!

    In this day and age, you should have a performer who can do both.

    I still have my pick as Johnny Lee Miller doing the performance via mo-cap. And I think I would cast Patrick Stewart as a two for. Sir Patrick should play Radd's father on Zenn-La who committed suicide and also play the voice of Galactus with some kind of distortion to give him that reverberating voice of God effect, also obviously playing the roles in different ways. I think that would be interesting and play into the Surfer's character as it would be two "father figures" as it were played by the same person in different times of his life. Cast Eva Green as Shalla-Bal.

    I really like Luke Evans for Radd for some reason.

    After seeing his acting chops in Logan I actually wouldn't be opposed to giving Stephen Merchant a go as Radd.

    He was great in portal 2 as well. But I’m still stuck on Keanu.

    I wonder if they would ever do the proper defenders? That would be fun
