Adam McKay Wants To Direct A ‘Silver Surfer’ Movie For Marvel

Marvel Adam McKay Silver Surfer

Adam McKay recently expressed interest in directing a Silver Surfer movie for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Director Adam McKay made his MCU debut with 2015’s Ant-Man. After director Edgar Wright left the director’s chair, the Vice director was approached to take over. He turned the opportunity down but being such a fan of Marvel growing up, he decided to team up with Paul Rudd to re-write the script for director Peyton Reed.

MTV’s Josh Horowitz recently had Adam McKay on his podcast Happy Sad Confused and near the end of the show, the director talked a bit about working with Marvel. When he was asked about a Marvel movie that he’d like to direct, McKay revealed that he’d be interested in bringing Silver Surfer to the big screen.

“Silver Surfer’s the one I want to do, man. I would do anything to do Silver Surfer because visually that would just be… like you could do what the Wachowskis did with Speed Racer with the Silver Surfer.

Yet at the same time, there’s a great, emotional story in there, man. Where the guy has to make the choice to save his planet. You know, Norrin Radd has to like save his planet that… that would be the one but I think Fox owns the rights, I don’t think it’s Marvel.”

After Horowitz corrected McKay and told him that the rights for Silver Surfer are back with Marvel, the director joked about calling up Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and getting started on the project. Hopefully, this plan comes to fruition but nothing has been officially announced as of now.

Avengers: Infinity War united nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the showdown with Thanos and after a decade of films that proved to be an extensive roster. However, the Marvel Studios epic concluded with Thanos succeeding in his mission to acquire the Infinity Stones and use their power to erase half of the universe's population, with many of the aforementioned heroes being included among the casualties. Fortunately, the original Avengers teammates survived Thanos' decimation and it appears they will be joined by a few the new heroes who debuted since the group initially formed when they head into the second showdown with Thanos.

Although Nebula appears to be with him, the unlikely companions seem to be lost with little chance of being rescued, though it is hard to imagine that Stark will spend most of what could be his final adventure away from the action.

Captain America

Captain America Avengers Endgame Winter SoldierThe First Avenger will unsurprisingly return for the conclusion of the first decade of Marvel Studios stories and he is determined to undo Thanos' decimation. Of course, many fans are concerned that reversing the decimation could come at a great cost for Captain America considering Chris Evans' contract expired with Avengers: Endgame.

Black Widow

Standing by Captain America's side as they head to attempt to reverse the decimation, Black Widow seems confident that their plan cannot fail.


Avengers Endgame Chris Hemsworth Thor MarvelAlthough Thor nearly defeated Thanos by stabbing through the chest with Stormbreaker, The Mad Titan had enough energy left to use the Infinity Stones to heal himself while erasing 50% of the population in the universe. Now, a contemplative Thor can be seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one can't fault him for reflecting on the fact that victory was almost in his grasp.


Avengers Endgame Nebula Marvel StudiosNebula and Rocket Raccoon were the only Guardians of the Galaxy characters to survive Thanos' wrath, with former being left alone on Titan with Tony Stark. With the film expected to conclude Thanos' and Nebula having more reason than most to see the Mad Titan brought to justice, fans are hoping she will have an extensive role Avengers: Endgame.


Avengers Endgame Hawkeye RoninThe new trailer also confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns and the death of family is the likely reason for his new identity. It appears Natasha will attempt to recruit her old friend when they embark on a mission to defeat Thanos, but whether or not Hawkeye agreed to join them remains to be seen.


Avengers Endgame Scott Lang Ant-Man Paul Rudd Marvel Studios

After the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, many were theorizing that the Avengers would have to rescue Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm and subsequently use the alternate dimension to travel back in time to defeat Thanos. While it appears Scott Lang managed to escape on his own, he may have brought the van containing the way to the Quantum Realm to the Avengers' front door.

Bruce Banner
