“And yes,” Sneider said, “you can expect to see a female Silver Surfer.”
Previously, there were a lot of rumors that Marvel was planning to ‘gender-swap’ the iconic comic book character in an upcoming project. As per our analysis, Earth-829 had a female herald for Galactus a decade ago named Juno, aka Silver Surfer, who is also a Marvel character. While there is currently no official confirmation or database entry for a female Silver Surfer in Marvel, it remains a possibility that a new portrayal of the character could be cast.
In Fantastic Four, Galactus is confirmed as the main villain, and Antonio Banderas was offered the role a few months ago, but now Javier Bardem is reportedly being eyed. In Marvel Comics, Galactus is a powerful cosmic character known for consuming planets to survive. He’s not a traditional villain but a force of nature, often appearing in stories involving characters like the Fantastic Four.
According to Marvel President Kevin Feige, the Fantastic Four film will not have an origin story. He said (via THR), “A lot of people know this origin story. A lot of people know the basics. How do we take that and bring something that they’ve never seen before?” Feige added, “We’ve set a very high bar for ourselves with bringing that to the screen.”
The film is produced by Feige, Grant Curtis, and Nick Pepin. ‘Fantastic Four’ hits theaters on May 2, 2025.
