Batman and The Silver Surfer



The Silver Surfer is one of those perfect characters. He has one of the simplest designs and yet it is one of the most effective in all of comics. Then there's his compelling origin and tragic partnership with Galactus. His exile on earth taught him the ways of humanity, lessons that he uses now that he is free to roam the spaceways again.

He is also a character that artists tend to really shine on (no pun intended!) His metallic look has invited different interpretations over the years and with new artists and new coloring techniques. Even in the second Fantastic Four film, which had it's share of problems, the Silver Surfer was excellently realized. Unfortunately the proposed Silver Surfer solo film follow up is no longer happening. Hopefully he will get his chance one day - he could definitely hold a film of his own!

I tend not to do the team-ups with more cartoony characters as the art doesn't really mesh between the two styles. A friend of mine did a great Batman Vs. Scrooge McDuck once though!

I'm surprised/not surprised really that the Surfer movie fell through. Maybe now that Disney owns Marvel, they'll either go Pixar, or maybe motion capture - like The Hulk is going to be in The Avengers...possibilites, possibilities...

Well Fox still holds the rights to the FF - is Silver Surfer a part of that deal? Not quite sure how it works.
