FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER DVD

On the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer DVD, director Tim Story discusses the cloud-like portrayal of Galactus in the film.

"We decided early on that we would not bring him to life completely as you might think of him in the comics, being a man with the suit and the helmet and everything else," Story said during his commentary.

"One of the main reasons is because we always knew that there was going to be a Silver Surfer 1, or they were going to make a spin-off of the Silver Surfer. If I gave up everything in this movie, then that movie wouldn't have much to go on.

"Knowing that I wasn't going to do it that early, I wanted to keep it fairly open to interpretation by the director who would do that one. So the idea of the cloud and everything made pretty good sense to us."

Story pointed out that the helmet of Galactus is visible on Saturn and that a glimpse of the character is shown toward the end of the film when the Surfer confronts him.

Story, who is attached to direct a film based on DC Comics' The Losers, did not discuss a third FF movie during the commentary other than hints that groundwork has been laid for the Pupper Master.

The DVD will be available on Tuesday in a single-disc and Power Cosmic (two-disc) editions.

The special features include a documentary on Silver Surfer, which features interviews with Stan Lee, J.M. DeMatteis, Ron Marz, Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin.
