"Fantastic Four 2" to Feature That Galactus Guy

This is how Wikipedia describes the Marvel character Galactus: "Sometimes called the Devourer of Worlds or Ravager of Planets, Galactus is an enormously powerful being who must "feed" on the energy of planets to survive." Neat. And apparently this big lug will be making an appearance in "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer."

Yep, as if a movie stocked with rock-men, stretchy-guys, flame-dudes, inviso-chicks, masked lunatics and interstellar surfboarders wasn't already packing enough craziness, this planet devourer fella is set to make an appearance in the "Fantastic Four" sequel. [Ed. note: The Galactus appearance was previously confirmed here; director Story's blog now elaborates on the still-developing status of the character.]

(Off-topic for a sec: Am I crazy or is the "FF2" teaser trailer better than the entire first movie? OK, I'm not crazy.)

Director Tim Story recently spilled the geeky beans over at his MySpace blog, which gives all the nerds (including me) another good reason to check out the superhero sequel come June 15th.

Story also mentions the further exploration of Dr. Doom in "Silver Surfer": "Doom? Oh he's coming. Just wait. Classic look! And we definitely touch on his roots in the film."

I think they need to re-evaluate the entire situation

The clouds will open up like in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Galactus' head appears to silver surfer. And then Galactus will speak, only he will speak like a floppy canadian head like in South Park.

This and only this will make this movie a hit.

Didn't they already announce this? It's a given because the Surfer was Galactus' servant, but then he breaks free I think.

French girls are the best! They are more free with their bodies and not so uptight like American girls! (well everythings out the window when you get an American chick drunk) but I've dated a French girl before and she had no qualms about doing everything naked in her house. Borat says "NICE!"

if this wasn't already announced, shouldn't all the comic fans already have guessed this since the Surfer is Galactus' herald.

Scott seems to have no idea who Galactcus is.

Judging by the fact that he looked it up on Wikipedia.... yea he has no idea.

it is going to be very interesting to see how they fit all of this into a movie that makes sense. although, they probably won't fit it into a movie and have it make sense ... hey, at least silver surfer will look cool.

Well, the fact that they decided to make a sequel, I thought, was mind-boggling. The first movie was terrible. However, since #2 is coming out relatively soon, stands to reason there will be a third as well, so perhaps they can stretch out this aspect of the story through the two movies, and just used the first as a character introduction and an excuse to see Jessica Alba in her panties.

Hmmm, and that's bad because?

man, they're really trying to throw a shitload of fan-favorite stuff into this movie. first the Surfer, then Galactus...anyone else think this is being done to mask a shallow plot?

Nope. Why should we? I mean, look at all they're throwing in to Spiderman 3, and, it's a given it'll be a good movie with a good story. Yet, just because FF wasn't as critically positive, you say that about FF2? I, for one, enjoyed the first, and, I probably will this one.

Was there an article up there about Fantastic Four 2? I wasn't paying attention. Just like I wasn't paying attention when I watched the first one.

I could have more fun poking my eye with a steak knife. pokepokepoke.
