Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is expected to feature an absolutely monstrous cast list full of Marvel’s heroes.
In fact there are so many heroes that will appear in the film directors Joe and Anthony Russo have a hard time keeping track of all of them. They’ve hinted they have over 67 characters.
“We have so many characters we’re dealing with. We’re breaking ground on Avengers: Infinity War. We have a board with 67 characters on it. You have to forgive him.”
And now one of those characters might be one of Marvel’s most powerful superheroes. A cast listing on Metacritic reveals that Silver Surfer will show up in Avengers: Infinity War. Not only does the cast listing show Silver Surfer will show up, but it reveals he will be played by Curt Clendenin.
It’s not that too far-fetched of a theory. The Silver Surfer has appeared in a number of Thanos comics including the Infinity Gauntlet by Jim Starlin which is one of the major influences on Avengers: Infinity War. In the lead up to Infinity Gauntlet, Silver Surfer is working with Drax the Destroyer, Starfox, Thanos’ brother, and Mentor, Thanos’ father, to find the whereabouts of Thanos. Unfortunately, Thanos has outwitted them and acquired the Infinity Gauntlet before they were able to stop him. With the power of the Infinity Gauntlet, the Silver Surfer and Drax are no match for Thanos.
However, that would not be the end of the Silver Surfer as he would work with Adam Warlock and Captain America in an attempt to steal the Infinity Gauntlet from Thanos. It would fail, but it would prove to Thanos he was vulnerable.
As for actor Curt Clendenin, he’s only been in extremely minor roles. He was a surprise partygoer in The Interview. He’s also credited as miscellaneous crew in Spider-Man and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
If the casting turns out to be true, it’s possible it could be an end credits scene like we saw in The Avengers. Damion Poitier portrayed Thanos in the end credit scene. Do you think the casting is true? Will we see the Silver Surfer in Avengers: Infinity War?
