Julia Garner Joins Marvel Studios 'The Fantastic Four' As Silver Surfer

I'm not jumping on the everything is woke bandwagon. In fact I am errked I am even remotely sounding like I am taking that POV,  but I do feel this was a bad casting decision. I get Shalla-Bal is from the comics but it's not the Silver Surfer most people know or what most fans want to see. To me it's kinda like if they used the Jane Foster Thor in the first Thor movie. Even if they eventually brought in the original Thor it would not have gone over well. Especially with the recent performances of MCU movies which has not been good, I think this was just a bad decision. I'm not gonna make any kind of final judgements or proclamations the movie will suck until I see more, but again my initial feeling is this was not a good decision.

It just depends on how the movie is done/written. I heard some rumors that the movie may take place in an alternate reality so she could be the Surfer in that reality.

I also remember when that last James Bond movie was being made and everyone was up in arms hearing they were replacing Bond with a black female. When the movie came out it wasn't anything like the early rumors made it sound like.

Can we please stop with these manufactured celebration days?   
May the 4th (as annoying as it sounds) at least makes sense. 
I have never seen "4-4" used in relation to the F4. 

Like, movie news aside, THIS is the sort of filler that really degrades the IP.
"4-4" isn't a thing and its on the fanbase to make certain it stays that way.
Otherwise we deserve whatever fluff comes from this.

What was wrong with Lawrence Fishburne?

He's a talented actor. I thought that movie was a turkey though and his character was a real snooze-fest. I did not think that was a good representation of the Silver Surfer, a character I've enjoyed for a long time. I thought that movie dropped the ball on Surfer and his story.

I myself am going to play the wait and see Game, especially since the rumour is that the F4 in this movie are from a alternate dimension/timeline, and that they eventually wind up in the Main MCU somehow.  While I too would of like to see Norrin Radd version instead of the Shalla-Bal version, for now, I am open to see what will happen, since this again is supposely not the main MCU.  

 

Though I can see how some people maybe fed up with the recent Marvel Movies replacing a male character with a female character, such as Ghost in Ant-man And The Wasp, Taskmaster in Black Widow, Shuri becoming Black Panther in the 2nd Black Panther movie, and Ironheart might end up as the New "Iron Man" like character(Especially since she is also a child genius).  Some would argue that in the 2nd Dr. Strange Movie is more like a Wanda movie, since the movie seems to put a focus on her(I haven't seen it yet, just basing on what I've heard people mention about Dr. Strange 2).

 

Though I will say for Ghost's case, you can argue that since the 1st 2 Ant-man movies have a Father/Daughter theme to them, having Bill Foster eventually become Ghost's father figure kind of makes sense for fitting in with the Father/Daughter theme of the movie.  I've not seen the 3rd Ant-man movie yet, so I don't know if there is still a strong Father/Daughter theme to that movie or not(I'm sure it's there, but when comparing to the 1st 2 movies, I don't know how strong it is).

 

I didn't add in Jane Foster Thor to the list because at the very least, there were essentially 2 Thor characters in Love And Thunder, instead of Jane replacing regular Thor.  It also becomes a mute point in that eventually, both in the comics and the MCU, Jane Foster dies of cancer,  so her term as Thor is short.  And at the very least, it may help viewers get use to the idea of having other characters in the MCU to wield the Power Of Thor somehow at the same time as regular Thor, such as Bata Ray Bill, or Thunderstrike.

I was more wondering about the physical acting or the voice acting. If I remember right Lawrence Fishburne only did the voice and it was another person that did the physical motion capture part.

I was unaware of the fact that Morpheus had anything to do with the FF at all until now. I saw the Rise of the Silver Surfer in the theater when I was a teenager and didn't realize that was his voice. The more ya know. 🤷‍♂️

Yup, did the voice and I think it was Doug Jones? that did the motion capture. I believe it's the same guy that did Abe Sapien in Hellboy.
