AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Directors Say Silver Surfer Won’t Be in the Movie

We’re expecting Avengers: Infinity War to have a few surprise appearances, but the movie’s directors just shot down one popular theory about a character fans had legitimate reason to believe might show up: the Silver Surfer. Despite evidence pointing towards him being in the movie, the Russo brothers say this is one wave he won’t be riding.

In an interview with YahooUK (via Collider), Joe and Anthony Russo were asked about the rumor the character was going to be in Marvel’s epic showdown with Thanos, despite 20th Century Fox still owning Silver Surfer’s big screen rights. But while they say that might be a possibility when/if the Disney-Fox merger goes through, the crossover isn’t happening in Infinity War.

Any character who could possibly be fantasy cast in the movie has been “rumored” to be appearing at some point by hopeful fans, but this specific theory carried a little more weight because, well, he’s listed as being in the movie. Metacritic still, as of this writing, has actor Curt Clendenin in the cast playing “Silver Surfer.”

Erroneous casts listings aren’t uncommon, but this was followed up by Curt Clendenin changing his Twitter banner to–you guessed it–an image of the Silver Surfer.

Considering how insane Marvel has been about spoilers for the movie, the smart money is on this just being Clendenin’s way to have fun with Metacritic‘s mistake.

Unless…do you think this is this damage control from the Russo brothers? Isn’t this exactly what they would say if Silver Surfer WAS in the movie? We know Infinity War is going to have some surprises, and seeing the Silver Surfer now would really be unexpected.

Do you think there’s any chance the character could show up in the movie? Surf into our comments section and let us know why.
