Marvel Studios Fuels Rumors It’s Killing the MCU Series Format After Silver Surfer Will Reportedly Be a Special Just Like Werewolf by Night

Silver Surfer series

Ever since the Marvel special Werewolf by Night has been gaining traction, it seems that Marvel is changing gears for its other projects as well. Silver Surfer is one of the most important characters to exist in the Marvel comics. Although portrayed averagely in the Fantastic Four movie, Marvel plans to bring back him back into the fold of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Following the success of Werewolf by Night, it is entirely possible that Silver Surfer will too, get a special presentation or a holiday special.

Silver Surfer Gets A Holiday Special?

Werewolf by Night took the Marvel fanbase by storm. Although it has still not found the usual amount of fame that Marvel movies or series do, the special is considered one of its kind. The presentation starring Laura Donnelly and Gael Garcia Bernal managed to gather a 91% score on Rotten Tomatoes!

People over at The Cosmic Circus have their sources at the ready for any information that they can get their hands on. It is seemingly confirmed by them that Silver Surfer is confirmed to get a TV/Holiday special presentation much like Werewolf by Night.

Since Silver Surfer is the way for Galactus to enter into the fold, he is of utmost importance to the MCU. Some people think that a special presentation will not be able to give the character justice while some people sit excitedly about his arrival. There are rumors that Silver Surfer will be introduced in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special which may be true but no confirmed sources have emerged as of yet. People on the other side think that Marvel is slowly killing the series culture by adding more specials.

With a Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and the confirmed Silver Surfer special, is Marvel slowly killing the series culture and switching gears? It was not long ago that Marvel entered the field of OTT series when WandaVision became a hit for all the fans to see. Marvel has not stopped since then. Although a dip in the quality of the films is noticeable, the series have been performing steadily since 2021. There is a rare possibility that Marvel would kill the series culture seeing as Marvel thrives on it. But the addition of Holiday specials and presentations is indeed a noticeable change and breaking pattern for Marvel.

Although confirmed, there has been no official news from Marvel or any statement regarding Silver Surfer. Although they had plans to include the Silver Surfer in the MCU at some point, perhaps it is not at this point. Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is expected to release in December 2022 on Disney+.
