After having a grand old time shooting Ghost Rider in Melbourne, it looks like producer Avi Arad wants to bring more superhero movies down to Austrlia. Plus, word is that an Aussie might be helming the Silver Surfer spin-off.

First things first: According to an article at, director Alex Proyas is being discussed as the guy to direct the inevitable Silver Surfer spin-off. Mr. Proyas is best known for Dark City and I, Robot.

Obviously no contracts have been signed yet, but having the silver dude spin off from the Fantastic Four sequel seems like sort of a no-brainer. Plus Proyas has shown his skills around the FX work, so it’d probably be a good match.

Arad promised to bring future Marvel properties down to Australia, and then he finished up with a plug for his latest project: Bratz: The Movie. Ugh.
