Galactus Not A Cloud In New FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER Concept Art
The website, Film Sketchr, has just gotten their hands on some really cool concept art that was made for Tim Story's Fantastic Four: Rises of the Silver Surfer. It features a humanoid form for Galactus instead of that terrible space cloud that we saw in the film.
The thing I find most amusing about 20th Century Fox's bizarre decision to have Galactus appear as a giant space cloud in Fantastic Four: Rises of the Silver Surfer, is that four years later Warner Bros. would make the SAME exact mistake with Green Lantern and have their main villain, Parallax, be a big giant space cloud too. (hands up in the air) Seriously, who are these morons at these studios that think a superhero fighting a giant space cloud is a good idea? Just for that alone directors Tim Story and Martin Campbell should be forced to spend the rest of their careers making dog food commercials.
With my little rant out of the way, let's get to some cool concept art that conceptual illustrator, Daniel James Cox, created for Fantastic Four: Rises of the Silver Surfer. The arwork (via Film Sketchr) is of a humanoid form for Galactus, that was not seen/used in the film. Keep in mind, back in 2007 when Tim Story was asked about the decision to present Galactus as just a cloud he explained that plans of a Silver Surfer spin-off film kept him from revealing Galactus true form. He didn't want to box in future director of the Silver Surfer spin-off with his take on Galactus, and thought that big reveal should be left for that film. That ill-fated decision is one of many reasons the Fantastic Four franchise fizzled out, which in turn killed any chances of a Silver Surfer solo film.
