If you read comic books growing up and saw the second Fantastic Four movie, you are likely aware of this. Please bear with me as I “educate “those who aren’t…
At the end of August 2008, the Comics Reporter had a post telling us that Jack Kirby would’ve been 91.
In that post, there was many Kirby pics. One of them was of Galactus:
What does this have to do with the movie? Galactus is not a wispy cloud.
I realize that there is probably some need to change him somehow to better reflect today’s sci-fi sensibility. It also follows that if you’re going to keep making Fantastic Four movies, Galactus is going to keep showing up. So you need to design him as someone that the FF can interact with. Galactus should not be shown as a white cloud.
And here’s another geeky nit-pick: No matter how smurfy the Silver Surfer might be, he’s a candle in comparison to Galactus. Galactus would pinch the Surfer out of existence in a confrontation. Combine Richard’s brains with Surfer’s power – then maybe you can hold Galactus off temporarily. Like in the original comic.
Maybe you could present the concept of “Galactus” to a bunch of artists and see what they drew?
