Surf's Up Dudes: Stan Lee Wants To See Another Silver Surfer Movie

Stan Lee repurposed a 1968 article about bigotry days after the Nazi rally in Charlottesville Va

Today Lee tweeted a photo of one of his Stan's Soapbox columns, a monthly piece that ran in Marvel's Bullpen Bulletins news and information section between 1965-2001, from 1968. His past creations aren't all we should be celebrating him for, however, as Lee remains at the forefront of the comic book industry's move towards embracing more diverse perspectives, a problem with which it's long struggled.

"He's the one I want to see more", Lee told Syfy. The reason that one is my favorite of the ones I've done is that it's the one cameo I've done that has two scenes. And in doing so, he opened up about his illustrious career, his contributions to the MCU (he still loves that hilarious Avengers: Age of Ultron cameo that he filmed), and the fact that he hopes the Silver Surfer gets another crack at silver-screen success. Able to travel the galaxy thanks to his metallic skin, Radd became an antihero of sorts by helping the villainous Galactus find worlds to consume. Even if Marvel doesn't now own the rights to the character.

While Michael Hathoot said: "I'm a 50 yr old fat man and I'm not ashamed to admit Stan Lee is my hero!" Nothing ever came of this though, and Marvel received the rights for Daredevil which allowed them to bring him to Netflix in the form of his own show. Perhaps if Fox and Disney had brokered a deal when they were supposed to, we could've seen them share the Silver Surfer a'la Sony/Disney with Spider-Man.

Played by Doug Jones and voiced by Laurence Fishburne, the Silver Surfer made his first and only live-action appearance in 2007's Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. However, for the time being, consider the character dented but still a precious metal - nothing can take the shine off the Silver Surfer.
