James Gunn is all set and geared up for the release of the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. The special presentation may surprise viewers with another character in the MCU, just following the latest trend. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it will not be Silver Surfer or Galactus.

Silver Surfer is the entryway for the introduction of Galactus. The planet-eating monster in the MCU has been enticing audiences for far too long.

Galactus also appeared in Fortnite.

Silver Surfer and Galactus are Not In James Gunn’s Holiday Special

Following a tweet of a reviewer who reportedly reviewed James Gunn’s holiday special, the tweet contained some hints. Hinting at the return of a special character, the tweet went along the lines of “watch the post-credit scene for a silver surprise.”

James Gunn was quick to act as he saw the tweet and simply replied with “false”. The reply clearly states that Silver Surfer will not be making an appearance in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. The return of Silver Surfer had been hinted at and rumored as far back as Avengers: Infinity War but the silver persona never appeared.

Silver Surfer is the gateway for the entry of Galactus, a highly revered antagonist in the MCU. After the death of Iron Man and the retirement of Captain America, it seems that the new Avengers will have to fight the mighty beast if he ever does make an appearance. Not all hope is lost though, as Disney and Marvel seem to have a close eye on Silver Surfer and Galactus. It has been reported that Disney will feature a Silver Surfer presentation before the release of the new Fantastic Four movie!

Silver Surfer Will Indeed Get His Chance In The MCU

Before the Marvel Cinematic Universe became what it is today, 21st Century Fox brought the Silver Surfer to the big screens. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) saw the silver board-waving sidekick/servant of Galactus trying to kill the Fantastic Four. Although the franchise suffered terribly at the box office, the character became an integral part of people’s minds as Galactus would eventually make an appearance in the MCU.

The reports of Silver Surfer getting his own special presentation are indeed good news for fans of the MCU as the Fantastic Four gears up for an alleged reboot (the plot is unknown at the time). But back to the main point, James Gunn doesn’t need to introduce Silver Surfer in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise as he is simply tying up knots and loose ends and completing his trilogy.

James Gunn is also the newly appointed co-head of DC Studios as his directed The Suicide Squad (2021) essentially revived the franchise. The Peacemaker series has also been getting a lot of admiration from people and James Gunn also remains excited for the future of DC.

Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is slated for a release date of 25th November 2022 and will be available to stream on Disney+.
