With the potential merger of Disney and 20th Century Fox lingering in the background, many fans have wondered what the studio will be doing with their Marvel properties before their potential return to the House of Ideas. The Hollywood Reporter has several revelations in a new report that indicates that not only is the studio not slowing down on their Marvel properties, but they’re developing more projects now than they ever have in the past.
First up, to pair it up with Noah Hawley’s (Fargo, Legion) Doctor Doom movie, the outlet reports that Fox is developing a Silver Surfer stand-alone movie which is being written by none other than Eisner award-winning writer Brian K. Vaughan. Little else is known about the project at this point. The Silver Surfer previously made his big screen debut in the Fantastic Four sequel released in 2007.
