Mr. Fantastic Spills Some "Silver Surfer" Beans

by | February 14, 2007 | Comments

While out promoting his new Michael Apted film, "Saving Grace," actor Ioan Gruffudd has to field a lot of "Fantastic Four" questions, but he seems to handle the stuff pretty well, going so far as to offer a few new tidbits to AICN.

AICN’s Quint was the one throwing the questions out, and Mr. Gruffudd followed them up with "Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer" answers that weren’t too spoiler-y.

"I’m very excited about it because it takes our movie and our franchise to a whole new level. It’s up there now where they’re comparing the effects to those of the SPIDER-MAN movies, which is a film that is $100 million more expensive than our movie, and rightfully so, it’s an awesome franchise. I think the fans will not be disappointed. It is as he (The Silver Surfer) arrived in the comic books. He’s an ambiguous character. Is he the protagonist or evil, or just the messenger of evil? We’re not quite sure."

The actor then goes on to discuss a few problems with the original flick, the relief at being freed from an "origin story," the wedding between his sister and Flameboy, and the presence of something called … Galactus. Click here for the full interview.
