The Green Surfer..

Not much to say.. except that if you thought that Tim Story was joking about bringing the Silver Surfer and Galactus into his sequel to the tepid "Fantastic Four," here's proof that he was serious.

Flickr has unearthed the first two pictures of a green screened Norrin Radd or in this case Doug Jones (he was the actor who played Abe Sapien in "Hellboy" although the voice was rerecorded by Frazier's brother Niles). HERE

I can't comment on the pictures since its obviously green screened (not "motion capture" like others have mentioned). Since that means they will probably layer computer generated effect on top of him, we will have to wait and see. I just hope that Tim Story understands why fans feel he did a lousy job and actually tries to make a better film.

As I stare at what should be Marvels' most inspiring and philosophical character, I fear him slipping away from us like Elecktra and Kingpin and Frank Castle. Maybe he will make a better film. I liked "Barber Shop" a lot. He did "Taxi" too... Bye Bye Norrin!
