Morpheus in a Fantastic Four? Could it be?
Fishburne is the Voice of The Silver Surfer
April 19, 2007
Laurence Fishburne (“The Matrix” trilogy) will voice the role of The Silver Surfer in 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, opening in theaters on June 15.
Rumors had Fishburne voicing the role of Galactus in the sequel, but the studio hasn’t decided whether Galactus will even speak, says Variety. Silver Surfer, who rides his surfboard through space, is the herald for the planet-destroying Galactus. Fishburne joined “Silver Surfer” this week.
That’s huge! Aside from James Earle Jones I don’t know who else would have such a great and distinctive voice for a character as huge as Silver Surfer. Good choice with that. It also brings more credibility to a sequel to such a suckfest that the first Fantastic Four movie was.
