Lately, much of the Marvel discussion on social media has revolved around an entirely new format intended for future Marvel Studios releases. On this site, we first revealed Marvel’s intention to develop more specials in the next phases of the MCU. In the article, we talked about how Marvel plans to use this format to explore stories that can expand the boundaries of the MCU.

The presentations capitalize on characters worthy of spinoffs without having to popularize themselves with longer Disney+ series. A few candidates for this format are currently being planned. These are characters that are already part of the MCU, as well as those that will be introduced in the cinematic franchise. We recently revealed that Marvel’s Nova is being planned as a future presentation special on Disney+. And now, we’ll be discussing another character group to make waves with its introduction to the MCU – The Silver Surfer.

Despite all these rumors and speculation, details regarding the coming of Galactus’ Herald have been scarce. Until now. we are in Cosmic Circus It can confirm that Marvel Studios is indeed developing the solo Silver Surfer project. Additionally, our sources confirm Giant Freakin Robot’s claims earlier this month, that Marvel has plans for a Silver Surfer Special Presentation on Disney+.

This is a massive addition to the MCU, especially the cosmic side of it all. The Silver Surfer is one of the biggest cornerstones in Marvel Comics history. He’s also probably one of the better guys when it comes to the cosmic side of Marvel. His upcoming debut will undoubtedly have waves across the fandom for all the right reasons.

According to our sources, the silver surf special presentation will have a similar style to Werewolf by night. The project will feature Norrin Radd as Galactus’ Herald in the far corners of the universe.

Subsequently, Silver Surfer It would be a very isolated story in the context of the MCU. Our sources were also able to describe the atmosphere of the special. They cited Netflix hypnotist As inspiration for the special presentation, but with a cosmic spin.

The release window for Marvel’s Silver Surfer Special

In addition, our sources have confirmed a possible release window for the upcoming Silver Surfer special. According to our sources, we have been told that this special presentation will be released a few months before Fantastic Four premiere in February 2025. Although the current stages of projects are still unpredictable and could change over time, we have been told that Should release before the movie.

When asked about the details, they did not elaborate. However, one can assume that Marvel’s interest in releasing this project before a theatrical film could connect the two. It’s possible that Marvel plans to use the Silver Surfer’s special to introduce the character before she appears in the Marvel Universe Fantastic Four Movie. In this case, the Fantastic Four could take on the Herald in their first cinematic appearance. It could also mean that the Silver Surfer’s master, Galactus, wasn’t too late.

Is Marvel Studios finally ready to release Galactus?

At this point in the game, it’s too early to tell how Marvel plans to use Galactus in their upcoming MCU projects. However, the appearance of the cosmic being at the point of this multiverse saga could actually benefit the MCU. His personality can be a hostile presence at first and a warning of what’s to come.

Before becoming the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus was a humanoid from a planet that existed in a multiverse prior to the one that currently exists in Marvel Comics. Galan, as he was then called, merged with a cosmic entity in his universe so that his essence could be preserved and inhabited in the new multiverse, thus becoming known as Galactus.

In the MCU’s origins, Galactus may be a by-product of the first multiverse war. As a survivor of the destruction of the previous multiverse, Galactus can shed light on Kang the Conqueror and his true identity. He can even warn the heroes of this universe of the consequences of Kang’s victory over the multiverse if he wins the war again. But that’s a theory for another time.
