A Silver Surfer standalone is currently under works as 20th Century FOX has more Marvel movies planned than ever4 min read
A latest report confirms that 20th Century Fox is working on a Silver Surfer standalone movie.
With the Disney-FOX deal under tight scrutiny with big conglomerates looking to step in , Fox has kicked into full gear with its Marvel properties. We already knew of a Doctor Doom standalone movie featuring Marvel’s infamous Victor Von Doom.
Now according to a new report by The Hollywood Reporter , 20th Century Fox has also planned a Silver Surfer standalone planned for its future film slate. The stand-alone feature will be written by comics creator Brian K. Vaughn.
“We are going 100 miles per hour,” says one executive involved , remarking about the secret projects the studio has on slate. This decision for more spin-offs came from the phenomenal success the studio has received with Deadpool and Logan , both unconnected with the main X-Men universe.
As of this year , with the New Mutants been shifted to next year for additional rounds of photography and Deadpool 2 been pulled up to May 18th , 20th Century Fox has 3 theatrical Marvel releases for this year. Meanwhile talking of the movies in the pipeline , Channing Tatum’s Gambit still looks forward to a director while a X-Force movie from Drew Goddard, is set to begin shooting in October; with Reynolds and Josh Brolin expected to star.
With Marvel Cinematic Universe at its pinnacle , the movie division at FOX looks forward to stay in the game with any means necessary. Utilizing all the Marvel properties that they inherited during the 90s , the movie division seems unaffected by the bigger picture of the $52.4 M acquisition. “We actually have way more in development and production in Marvel IP than at any point in the history of the studio,” a Fox insider said. “There’s been zero slowdown on that front given Disney.”With all the projects in the equations , the studio intends to produce 3 marvel movies in both of 2019 and 2020.
The Fantastic 4 is one of the most lucrative Marvel properties FOX has. Unfortunately they couldn’t make it work ; even after a reboot. Thus they might be focusing on more specific elements of the Marvel lore.Thinking in that way , the Silver Surfer doesn’t take much time to enter your mind.
