It’s been more than ten years since the Silver Surfer appeared onscreen in the forgotten Fantastic Four sequel, Rise of the Silver Surfer. Now, in the face of Disney’s looming $60 billion acquisition of Twentieth Century Fox, Brian K. Vaughn, one of the best comic book writers of the modern era may be tackling one of Marvel’s most alien superheroes.

On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter wrote about the numerous Marvel movies currently in development at Fox. In addition to films we already know about, like Channing Tatum’s Gambit and the Deadpool spin-off X-Force, one of the most exciting projects is a stand-alone Silver Surfer movie from writer Brian K. Vaughan. Yes, THAT Brian K. Vaughan, the guy who introduced Marvel’s Runaways and penned creator-owned hits like Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Saga, and Paper Girls.

“We are going 100 miles per hour,” one Fox executive was quoted.

When it comes to material/creator combinations, Vaughn and Jack Kirby’s Silver Surfer is a match so perfect it’s almost criminal it hasn’t happened in comics. With a distinct voice who can make alien worlds human (Saga) or human worlds alien (Y: The Last Man), Vaughan could make the alien Norrin Radd, who used to traverse galaxies seeking planets for his boss Galactcus to consume before he met the Fantastic Four, a tragically human figure.

For a select audience raised throughout the ‘90s, they may best remember the Silver Surfer for his amazing but short-lived animated series, Silver Surfer, which aired on Fox Kids alongside X-Men and Spider-Man.

But will fans actually get to see Brian K. Vaughan’s take on the Silver Surfer? Working against the project is the potential disruption of Disney, which recently purchased Fox’s film and TV assets for a whopping $52.4 billion in December. The buyout may interfere with all the Marvel projects in the works at Fox, with one Fox source saying there are more in-development Marvel IP “than at any point in the history of the studio.”

For now, though, things seem relatively normal. “There’s been zero slowdown on that front given Disney,” another source told The Hollywood Reporter.

While a Silver Surfer movie is exciting, there’s no shortage of X-Men-related movies coming in the next year. This May, Deadpool 2 hits theaters, while X-Men: Dark Phoenix will arrive in November. The New Mutants was slated to premiere this summer, but has since been pushed to February 22, 2019.

Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 is just around the corner. It might feel like Season 5 just began, but as summer winds down you can expect to see some major changes in the popular game. So when exactly will these changes occur? And what will they be?

Here’s everything you need to know about the start of Fortnite Season 6, and our best theories for what to expect in the next couple of weeks.

By now, we all know Thor should’ve aimed for the head at the end of in Avengers: Infinity War, even though Star-Lord shoulders a lot of the blame for Thanos wiping out half the universe due to his meltdown on Titan. But if you believe Doctor Strange’s talk about one successful outcome and his alleged “endgame,” then maybe Star-Lord’s freakout was actually an essential part of the plan. At the very least, the alternative could’ve been so much worse.

With all of New York’s criminal underworld webbed up in Marvel’s Spider-Man, gamers may be curious when it’s time for another swing. DLC will be released for the game very soon, but some are already curious if a sequel is in the cards. Nothing is confirmed, but if it does happen, Insomniac teases even more of Spider-Man’s universe will be explored.

The Flash Season 5 is really going to be a family affair, mostly because that “big mistake” Nora West-Allen made totally messed up the timeline.

The CW released a new trailer for The Flash Season 5 on Wednesday subtitled “Shadows” and it focuses mostly on the fallout from Nora traveling in time, namely in how it helped empower the season’s new big bad.

Carol Danvers has officially landed in the Captain Marvel trailer by smashing right through a Blockbuster Video as the video opens, but rather than looking like a human returning home, she seems more like an alien looking at a strange land for the first time.

The first trailer for Captain Marvel debuted on Good Morning America on Thursday morning. Lead actress Brie Larson went on the morning talk show as a guest to help introduce the trailer.
