So, reports in the LA Times today state that the Silver Surfer will be spinning off into his own film. With Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer only a couple of days away, it looks like the studio behind the summer blockbuster are putting the cart before the horse, but who knows. The report also states that J. Michael Strazynski (Amazing Spider-man; Silver Surfer: Requim) will be turning in the first script.

More importantly though, the same article reports that Marvel is going forward with a planned Thor film and links director Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake; Stardust) to the production. I loved Layer Cake and the previews of Stardust look amazing, so if there is any truth to this rumor, I am definitely on board. As long as Thor gets to lay the smackdown on some Frost Giants!
