    I read on another forum that he's been hired to play the Surfer. LOL. Let us all hope and pray that this is false.

    Why?

    Reeve's acting style could perfectly capture the spiritual solemnity of the Surfer.

    Reeves would be fine as Silver Surfer though he's laughable in most other roles...except Neo.

    That rumor has been going around quite a bit...mostly on imdb and a couple of others, but i haven't seen anything that officially conforms it.

    I hope this becomes true, so I can retrace my messages from years ago on various comics boards and say 'told you so'.

    This may be true for a solo movie, but I would be totally surprised if the SS is a main character in this movie. I just don't see them having the time to do it. They look like they are on the same production schedule they were on last time (which I'm not really happy about, but we won't open that can of worms again.) and since they didn't get finished last time around with what they had, I certainly don't see them being able to do it this time w/ that kind of CGI. Story had enough trouble w/ Reed, and that didn't turn out so well. IMO.

    Not a bad choice for the role of surfer.

    What's wrong with him? I think The Surfer is the only role he could do in the Marvel verse.

    while keanu reeves is not the greatest actor, that is not he shouldnt play silver surfer, he just does nothing to come close to resembeling who the silver surfer is nor could his persona match that of him; marvel has taken wild swings at subpar, forgotten, or underatted actors and ressurected there careers before, i.e. hugh jackmen, willem dafoe, alfred molina, chris evans, bruce willis, possibley even keanu reeves himself, while he may not physically resemble the character john constantine, he nailed the attidue right on the head; basically i think keanu reeves is vastly underrated, in saying that i also don't think he's very good, nor do i think he would be a good silver surfer

    naw that would be the worst. the character would end up being ruined like affleck did for daredevil. keanu reeves is such a horible actor. u need some random actor no one knows yet for these classic characters to work.

    He would probably pull of a decent Deadpool. But there are much better actors for that.

    Keanu Reeves would have been perfect 5 or 10 years ago.

    Oh God no! Keanu could pull it off so much better, but I hav ea feeling they might go for a less unknown actor.
