    They could really get any actor because he might be likely to be mo-capped like Hulk or the Black Order. I don't imagine they'll be painting an actor silver.

    Mahershala Ali for Silver Surfer, dont care that he was cotton mouth honestly. I wanted him for martian manhunter but honestly this will probably get made before mmh gets the chance at an appearance.

    If that happens, and it probably will, I will freak out! Silver Surfer's potential for a movie franchise is huge!!

    How could they update his look? It's not like he has a costume that can make aesthetic changes or even Hulk where his size and muscle tone can change. The FF4: ROTS movie actually got his look pretty accurate. The only thing I can see is making him more photo-realistic I guess.

    That's pretty much it. He's kind of like hulk same basic design but a different face. So best thing to do is make him look good and make him compelling.

    I think he looked a bit too much like a Poser 3D animated character here. It's the overly metallic sheen. When he lost that after being separated from his board, you could see there was a real person under that, and I thought he looked better and more realistic then. I think they should try to go from something like that.

    Also, the problem with this design is that his face looked far too generic and again, much like a Poser character. Comic Silver Surfer has very distinct eyes. They need to get those right. It's like getting the Spider-Man eyes correct.

    Yeah, make him a bit less shiny and reflective and give him white eyes with dark outlines.

    I do like that first one. I also like how it looks like silver flesh instead of liquid metal

    About as big as it gets for a solo character.

    That's exactly as it should be. Silver flesh, or a coating over him at least. I don't like the liquid metal because it makes him look too much like the Terminator, and also an unrealistic Poser 3D character.

    Even Iron Man's armour is not so reflective. They could easily have gone that route and then he would've looked less realistic and too CGI. That's what too much reflection does.

    Ricky Whittle for Silver Surfer. He already has the bod, looks good bald and he's a good actor. Plus he's a total comic book nerd, if I remember correctly.
