Ang Marvel comics superhero na Silver Surfer
tampok sa taklob-pahina ng Empire Magazine
April 2007 issue
Larawang Tribiya
          Ang Marvel comics cosmic superhero na si Silver Surfer (a.k.a Norrin Radd ng planetang Zenn-La) ay likha ni Jack kirby at unang lumabas sa Fantastic Four #48 (March 1966). Alam niyo ba na hindi sinasadya ang pagkalikha sa kaniya at sa simula ay atubili pa ang writer-editor na si Stan Lee na isama sa istorya ang isang character na naka-surfboard.
          Unang nakita sa pelikula si Silver Surfer noong 2007 sa Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Alam niyo ba na dalawang tao ang nagbigay-buhay kay Silver Surfer sa pelikulang ito? Ang pisikal na gumanap bilang Silver Surfer ay si Doug Jones, subalit' iba ang nagbigay ng boses sa character – si Laurence Fishburne. Sa simula ay hindi pa sigurado ang production team kung magkakaroon ng boses si Silver Surfer. Una namang pinili si Fishburne para magbigay ng boses kay Galactus. Sa bandang huli, hindi na ginawan ng pisikal na nagsasalitang anyo si Galactus, kundi isang gumagapang na tila ulap na lamang, at si Fishburne ang nagbigay boses kay Silver Surfer. Isa pang dagdag-kaalaman: Si Jones ay dating nagtrabaho bilang isang contortionist.
