AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Directors Weigh In On Those Recent Silver Surfer Rumors

Rumor has it that the Silver Surfer could make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War and Joe and Anthony Russo have now responded to those claims as well as explaining the impact of the Fox/Disney deal.

While it was always a hard to believe rumour, the possibility of the Silver Surfer gliding into Avengers: Infinity War got fans very excited earlier last month. We've known for a while that Kevin Feige wants the character (and Galactus) because he once offered Fox the opportunity to keep Daredevil in exchange for those two, a deal they refused despite them sitting on a shelf gathering dust ever since. 

Now, the Russo Brothers have weighed in on the reports and it sounds like we can forget about seeing the Silver Surfer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe...for now, at least! "I don’t think we own Silver Surfer," Joe points out in the video below when asked about a possible cameo. "But it’s fan-wish
fulfillment and, you know, if this Disney-Fox deal goes through there’s going to be a lot more characters coming into the Marvel universe, so some of those crazy fan theories might come true."

However, just because that cosmic character won't be showing up doesn't mean there won't be plenty of amazing characters on screen. "We look at the poster and think ‘who’s left?’ I don’t know who we didn’t get," Joe says. Anthony had this to say about the process of putting the movie together: 
"It’s hard to second guess, you know, part of the beauty of these movies is that there are so many different directions that you can go. There are so many different choices you can make and I think that’s part of the fun of the process for Joe and I, in those early days, feeling out where we want to go with the movie, sitting with Marcus and McFeely and the writers, talking through all the possibilities, and once you centre on a road, just running with it. I don’t think we have any regrets about the choices we’ve made I think we’re very happy with it, but yeah, the material is infinitely malleable."
