Fox Is Working On A ‘Silver Surfer’ Spinoff Film And Putting A Rush On It


Since the announcement of the potential  20th Century Fox-Disney merger, many people have been waiting with bated breath to see many popular Marvel characters such as the X-men and the Fantastic Four join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even with deal in the works Fox is still kicking out projects for the properties it owns. Deadpool 2 arrives in March, X-Men:Dark Phoenix in December and The New Mutants which has been pushed back to next year.  But that does not mean that Fox is slowing down by any means in trying to push out more films before the acquisition is complete.

According to   The Hollywood Reporter solo movies for both Doctor Doom and the Silver Surfer are in the works, with the Silver Surfer being written by Brian K. Vaughn of Saga and Runaways fame Here is the thing, the studio is in a rush to get these out and is reportedly moving at “100 miles per hour” to get complete.

“It does not affect this project in any way, shape or form is what I was told,” Brian Michael Bendis tells the trade after signing up to work on a Kitty Pryde movie with Deadpool director Tim Miller. “At least at the moment, it’s certainly decisions over my pay-grade if it ends up doing so.”
It’s “business as usual” at Fox according to one  insider, “We actually have way more in development and production in Marvel IP than at any point in the history of the studio. There’s been zero slowdown on that front given Disney.”  
It is going to be extremely interesting to see what if any of these properties see the light of day with Fox and what may or may not hit the big screen by 2019.
