We’ll cut to the chase: read on to see the first image of the Silver Surfer himself from "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer!"
Peep the first shot of the "Fantastic Four 2" good guy/bad guy, who actor Doug Jones confirmed to RT is not, repeat not, a CGI creation (although the folks over at 20th Century Fox are obviously putting some digital wizards to work on him):
Just like The Thing, the Silver Surfer won’t just be the muscle suit. "I would be remiss if I said it’s just that. 20th Century Fox really is spending a lot of money putting together the very best visual effects done by Weta with the very best practical effects done by Spectral Motion to create a look that is really going to stun you on film. He is absolutely, I’m not kidding. He’s stunningly gorgeous."
As you "Fantastic" fans already know, the sequel to 2005’s comic book adaptation will see the cosmically-enhanced Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch, and the Thing encountering the planet-hopping Silver Surfer and his evil employer, Galactus.
"Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer" will blast into theaters June 15, 2007.
