"Fantastic Four 2"'s Silver Surfer To Be Created Using Body Suit, Not CGI?

by | September 15, 2006 | Comments

According to AICN, the Silver Surfer, who’ll be played by Doug Jones ("Hellboy," "Pan’s Labyrinth"), in the "Fantastic Four" sequel will be wearing a chrome/silver colored body suit. Additionally, the face will be a head piece with a "fixed, contemplative expression” and “limited mouth movement."

Considering that the first film was fairly successful using Michael Chiklis in a body suit for The Thing (despite the pre-release ire of fans), the look of Silver Surfer will at least be consistent with him. It’ll also save the studio a lot of money.

"Fantastic Four" was a surprise hit in 2005, grossing over $154M domestically, despite a lowly Tomatometer of just 25%.

The sequel, tentatively titled "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," is scheduled for release on July 4th, 2007. Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Ioan Gruffudd, and Chris Evans are returning to reprise their characters.
