    A whole film where we get to see Strange pal around with Banner and two other strong but opposing characters like Namor and Surfer would be so good.

    Adam McKay’s Silver Surfer should be the first film they make with the Fox characters.

    Keanu is a must IMO, but if he could snag Bale....

    Holy ****, Adam McKay has directed Ryan Gosling before... when you think about it, Silver Surfer is pretty much the perfect superhero role for Gosling. They snagged Gyllenhaal for the MCU...

    Gosling and Reeves should top the shortlist.

    Gosling and Bale are both great picks. Would Marvel be able to get them, though? How about Henry Cavill as the Surfer

    I think this is the one superhero movie where Marvel should really go for a big name.

    Cavill would have to seriously slim down as he's too bulky for the Surfer. Also I don't think he's a good enough actor.

    Bale is never a consistent body weight. At the moment he's fat from playing in Vice. Who knows what he'd be in a year's time. I think he fluctuates too much for something like Silver Surfer where you'd have to stay more consistent. He won't commit to that.

    Good point about Bale. I doubt he'd even want to sign a 7-movie contract. I think Cavill's subdued approach to acting would be a would be a good fit for Norrin Radd. He'd have to slim down, though. That's for sure.

    This Is a stretch but maybe Chris Pine?

    You want a very serious actor for Surfer. I don't mean that we shouldn't take Pine's acting seriously. But he has too much charisma and personality, and to suppress that would be wasting his talents. If he had been much younger by about 18-20 years, he might even have been a good fit for Johnny Storm.

    For Norrin Radd, it needs someone quite serious but also who is not wooden. And he has to be quite eloquent and well spoken with a good deep voice.

    It'll be someone you never suspect per the norm.

    Well, John Boyega brings up the interesting point of casting a non-white person as the Surfer.

    I mean Norrin Radd in the original books was kind of ambiguously brown.

    Really? That’s interesting. I’m not saying it’s wrong but I didn’t pick up on that. I would have thought maybe Korean or Japanese but I’m intrigued by that

    Rami Malek kind of makes perfect sense

    He does look a bit like the surfer.

    Holy ****. Adam Mckay and Feige have had discussions. This is most likely happening, and I’d bet on this being the first movie we get with a Fox character!! I’m freaking hyped.

    Looks more fitting for Namor.

    I think if McKay wants to do it, then that movie gets fast tracked no doubt.
