Silver Surfer updates

Through Comingsoon comes the news that SciFi Scanner caught up with J. Michael Straczynski recently and talked to him a little about his SILVER SURFER spin-off. Fox was of course, planning to develop it after the second FANTASTIC FOUR movie:

"Whether or not it ever gets made I don't know because they were kind of disappointed in how 'Fantastic Four 2' did... And given how this will be a subset of FF2 in terms of the marketing strategy, I think there is hesitation there about putting it forward. The script is pretty good, I like it, but whether or not it goes into production, I have no idea."

He added that the movie was to "pick up literally the next frame after the FF2 movie, where you find out why Silver Surfer was there and what happened to him. We would have seen Galactus, his home world, what happened and him trying to get back there, because now that he's betrayed Galactus, he's concerned his home world might be in jeopardy."

You'll find the rest of the interview HERE. What you won't find is how badly Tim Story messed up the FANTASTIC FOUR movies, since arithmeticians and Nobel laureates agree that there is in fact no way to accurately quantify it.
Extra Tidbit: Apparently Brendan Fraser was considered for the role of Reed Richards. It is quite frankly shocking to think that FANTASTIC FOUR could have been worse, but there you have it.
