Terry Crews is down for a Silver Surfer role

San Diego Comic Con International 2010 - "The Expendables" Photocall

The actor Terry Crews, who was pegged for years as being Marvel’s Luke Cage, still retains a desire to play a super hero in the popular universe. But it’s not one you’d likely have expected. Crews has gone the total opposite direction to Cage, saying that he thinks he’d be a great Silver Surfer. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in “Fantastic Four #48”, and is a cosmic space deity, who plays the role of herald to the planet eater, Galactus.

In a Reddit AMA, Crews was asked ‘Favourite Super Hero, and who would you want to play the most?’ To which, the man replied:

“… it’s hard to pick a favorite super-hero. I always did love Luke Cage, and I’m really, really happy about who they cast in the Netflix version of Luke Cage. So that’s something that’s already done. But you know who else I’d like to play? The Silver Surfer. I always LOVED – I thought I had the build, the body, I could get on that surfboard, and if they ever do a live-action version of Silver Surfer, I think that would be perfect for me.”

We’d love to see a jacked up Surfer, and depending on the success of the upcoming FF reboot, it might not be too far-fetched. Heck, he may even land that solo movie that’s been rumoured for ages, especially with his recent popular solo series. We can only hope.

 

French Publisher Humanoids has arrived on Comixology!

Out of nowhere, Comixology has decided to release the digital works of fan-favourite publisher Humanoids, with some small sales for you to catch up on. For those not aware, Humanoids were founded in 1974 by popular artist Moebius. They’re a French company with lots of successful releases under their belt, and you can read about it here if you want some more in depth info.

Often, though, a lot of their releases are incredibly rare or hard to find. For example, the classic Moebius/Jodorowsky work The Incal, and The Metabarons, are often renowned in the industry as classics, yet never receive the attention they deserve due to their elusive nature. Thankfully, you can now read them all digitally. I myself have picked up the first 2 volumes of The Incal (the first is on sale, at $1.98!), and plan to work through the entire series slowly. These are great works, and you should definitely take a look, as it’s not often we spotlight sales!

The Flash S1E11 ‘The Sound and The Fury’ Review – SPOILERS FOR ALL

fla111a0291b2jpg-64736a_960w

Music to my ears, a pitch perfect episode tuned to just the right frequencies. A villain who is smart, lethal, is full of secrets and knows what they’re doing. It’s the first appearance of the pied piper on the show but unfortunately no pipe. The show does more than just show off about the pied piper though, it brings out the side of Harrison Wells that we haven’t seen yet.

“Fantastic Four” Trailer Hits

The upcoming Fantastic Four reboot by 20th Century Fox has always been scoffed at by fans, yet all we’ve had to go on were actor interviews, or press releases. No, we’ve been given a trailer, which is definitely close to the tone we’ve been told, but in all honestly, doesn’t look that bad.

The trailer depicts each of the heroes before their transformation, showing that they’re conducting an elaborate experiment which leads to their powers. There’s no sign of Doom, which makes me a little unnerved, however, it doesn’t look as grim and ‘grounded’ as the producers have been previously describing it as.

The reboot will allegedly be staying closer to the Ultimate universe “N-Zone” origin, rather than the original Stan Lee astronauts. The movie will be opening August 7 this year.
