Kellvin Chavez over at Latinoreview.com interviews Tim Story about returning to direct the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (the sequel to the Fantastic Four). Read on:
The Fantastic Four are back, and so is Tim Story. Tim directed the surprise hit film Fantastic Four and Fox rewarded him with the reins to the upcoming sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. In the second go-round, it’s up to Sue Storm/Invisible Woman (Jessica Abla), Ben Grimm/Thing (Michael Chiklis), Johnny Storm/Human Torch (Chris Evans) and Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic (Ioan Gruffudd) to save Earth when the indestructible Silver Surfer arrives to bring about the planet’s demise. Rise of the Silver Surfer opens June 15. We caught up with Tim, and here’s what he had to say.
Latino Review: You surprised a lot of people with the first film. What do you think people liked about it?
Story: I knew that families were going to be my core audience. Of course I knew that the film was probably more accessible than any other comic book-based franchise out there. But I kind of forgot that kids love the Thing, that they want to be Johnny Storm. Whole families could go in there and watch it and not have to worry about too much. So it was kind of a surprise, but at the end of the day, it was one of those, ‘Well, duh’ kind of moments. I think it hit because it was very accessible and, for the most part, inviting. It just told you, ‘Hey, you can come here, have a good time.’ I think the characters are lovable. I think the situations were done in a way that was, ‘If this really happened, what would it be like?’ I think that just made it entertaining.
Latino Review: What lessons as a filmmaker did you take from the first film to this one?
Story: Well, going into story one, I kind of knew it was going to be what it was, which was a very contained movie. For the most part, the whole movie was about this thing, this big event happens to them and then they go into hiding. At some point they come out of hiding, only to fight their foe. It doesn’t really leave much in the way of, ‘Hey, let’s go do some big stuff.’ So, in the second movie, it’s all about them being in the public. And what better way to put them in the public eye than to put them on a global scale. So the lesson was one that I knew, which was that I was going to have to go from a contained movie to one that was balls-out, all the way open, in the daylight and just all over the place. Also, going into the second film, I’d gotten my big lessons doing the first film on visual effects and action. I just had a little bit more knowledge about what was going on.

The cast and crew of The Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer talk about bringing the comic book character to life on the silver screen. Read on:
The iconic comic book superhero the Silver Surfer was created by Marvel’s Stan Lee and Jack Kirby way back in 1966, first appearing in Fantastic Four #48. The Surfer became an instant fan favorite and was soon given his own spin-off. The character has enjoyed sustained appeal over the past several decades, appearing in numerous comic series, graphic novels, TV iterations, and videogames. Now, the Surfer is getting set to make his film debut when Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer hits the big screen on June 15.
IGN recently visited the film’s set in Vancouver and talked with the cast and crew about bringing the classic comic character to the big screen, and what the future might hold for the Surfer.
“You’ve always gotta go back to the comics,” says screenwriter Don Payne. “We’re pulling from Fantastic Four #48-50. We’re also doing #57-60, which is, I believe, the Doctor Doom/Silver Surfer story. And some moments from Ultimate Extinction as well — there are a couple things borrowed from there. And some new stuff all kind of thrown in.”
“I just saw a documentary where Jack Kirby referred to the Silver Surfer as a fallen angel and I think that’s a good analogy,” says Payne. “I think he’s one of the most complicated characters in comic book history, maybe the most complicated, because he’s done this amazing selfless act by saving his own planet and giving up the woman he loves to save her life and yet he’s become part of horrible genocide on a cosmic scale and there’s a moral ambiguity there. He’s a noble creature who’s got a Zen-like detachment from his actions and ultimately starts to become human again. Although he’s not human.”
