Default Fantastic 4 sequel gets a title!

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news06/060817i.php


Found this on Dark Horizons:

20th Century Fox have officially confirmed that the title for the "Fantastic Four" sequel is "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" reports f4 Movies.

In the sequel, the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of The Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost.

The movie will be in theaters June 15th 2007.

I'm anxious to see how Norrin Radd translates onto the silver screen, (no pun intended) however I did not like how Doctor Doom was done in the first movie. Terrible origin story there. Hopefully the Skyrider of the Spaceways is treated better in the second film.

Any comments?

I cant wait to see it, although it reminds me how long ill have to wait for my all time favorite superhero franchise, Batman (Dark Knight). Still i hope they put out as many Superhero movies as they can , i cant get enough .

Doom has to look better than he did last time. Get him in medievil armour etc, then he'll look badass.
But the silver surfer should be awsome. I hope they stick true to the comics as to his first appearance...Like, have the sky turn to fire and stuff.

I agree with Joe on this one. I liked the way Dr. Doom was done in the first movie (I didn't mind his movie origin as changes were expected), but Dr. Doom would overshadow Surfer and Galactus since he's F4's major villain. That's not a good thing as Silver Surfer and Galactus need to show that they are not minor characters and are very important. Therefore, Silver Surfer and Galactus are more than enough for the F4 sequel.
 
I rather be open-minded than be ignorant. This may sound harsh, but that's what I believe.

I would love a Fantastic Five movie - Cyber Thing, Human Torch, Big Brain, Psi Lord and Ms. Fantastic, it'd be awesome!

My concerns are, is that Galactus won't be in the movie at all and won't be a part of the Silver Surfer's origin. I'd get upset over that.

With due respect, (I don't want to come across as bashing you, Lion Blade) I felt that Doom's comic origin would do well on the big screen, but would overshadow the FF's story because it's so strong. Ed Brubaker's recent mini-series shows that. What I would have like to have seen for the movie is for the team to crash land in Latveria and are taken into custody for violating Latverian airspace. There, Reed meets Doom for the first time since college and then the story shows how their relationship evolved. Reed, Ben, Sue and Victor all are shown to have been in the same senior class at NYU (with Vic being a foreign exchange student who's called "fez", much to his dismay) and Johnny is an incoming freshman.

I think that would have worked.

Suh-weet! I think Silver Surfer done right on the big screen could kick major booty, and besides that Reed Richards was just too cute in the first one

FF and Silver Surfer. How can you go wrong with that?

Now as long as they don't get him messed up with the TMNT. And give him a silver hair-do. I REALLY don't want to watch the Surfer hang ten, catch some waves, and spout "gnarly", "tubular", and "righteous, dude". Or "cowabunga".
