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 Strange, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Guardians 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.”
