Speaking to MTV Geek, Marvel figurehead and Silver Age icon figures it’s a safe bet that Marvel are working up a solo movie for one of his favourite characters, the Silver Surfer created by cosmic comic-book supremo Jack Kirby in 1966′s The Fantastic Four #48.

“Back at Marvel, they are frantically looking for what is the next one they’re going to do,” explained Lee.

“There is no way they won’t eventually do a Silver Surfer movie.

“It may not be for a few years because they’re thinking and working on Doctor StrangeBlack PantherAnt-ManGuardians of the Galaxy. Everything we have. And the fans seem to want all of them. But they’ll get around to a Silver Surfer feature because he’s a wonderful character.”

The problem is that the Silver Surfer rights come bundled up with the Fantastic Four, currently held by 20th Century Fox who are working on a reboot helmed by Chronicle‘s Josh Trank.

Pick up The Definitive Silver Surfer for £8.96 from Amazon.co.uk
