Ever since it was reported that the upcoming Fantastic Four sequel would feature Silver Surfer everybody has had their own theories on who will land the role. Though Vin Diesel's bald mug has been suggested, it looks like that is no longer the case.
Who To Play Silver Surfer?
According to a report over at MovieHole, it looks like the role of Silver Surfer has already been cast... to a computer.
One rumour that has been making its way around the Internet in recent weeks is this one about Vin Diesel possibly playing The Silver Surfer in “The Fantastic Four 2”. I’m sure you’ve all heard it. And the rumour mill went [further] into overdrive last week, when it was announced that Diesel had left his new film “Black Water Transit” – for undisclosed reasons.
“No truth to it”, Story said, when asked about the Diesel rumours. “The Surfer will be a new CGI design being developed especially for the movie. It's going to be incredible”.
Silver Surfer entirely CGI? I am assuming they will still need to cast somebody for photo capture and voice; so there should still be a name behind the character.
