Silver Surfer Summer of 2007

1966: Fantastic Four No.48 introduces us to the alien Silver Surfer, instantly becoming a hit with comic readers across the world. (Okay, his solo comic series in 1968 didn't fare as well sales-wise but it established the character as a comics icon. And years later allowed pensioners to nick the name for their internet clubs.)

2007: Rise of the Silver Surfer, the second Fantastic Four movie, is scheduled to hit cinema screens in the summer. And there's an official trailer available to download here:

Those few seconds of footage look great, and far more impressive than anything seen in the first FF movie! Let's hope the rest of the film is up to that standard.
