Sure enough, now we’re hearing that Marvel is looking to pit Thanos against one of the heroes previously owned by Fox that fans can’t wait to bring into the MCU. According to our sources – the same who told us Captain America 4 was happening with Anthony Mackie long before it was confirmed – the studio plans to have the Mad Titan Silver Surfer fight at some point in the future.
As of yet, Marvel hasn’t officially announced when we can expect the Herald of Galactus to debut in the MCU, but it stands to reason that it’s set to see the The Fantastic Four reboot is under development. Likewise, another major character adjacent to FF, Kang the Conqueror, arrives in Ant-Man 3. So, Norrid Radd will undoubtedly be part of the next wave of heroes that will impact the universe during Phase 5.
We haven’t been told where this clash could take place, but we’ve heard before that the Mad Titan could return in a Secret wars movie. This would apparently see the villain fighting, none other than Doctor Doom, and therefore having him fight Silver Surfer in the same movie might make some sense. The two characters have fought on several occasions in the comics as well, with their matches generally being quite close – though Thanos often comes out on top.
