Laurence Fishburne Wants to Play Galactus for the MCU

Laurence Fishburne was the face of Perry White in the DCEU, but next week he will be moving over to Marvel to play Bill Foster for Ant-Man and the Wasp. As it turns out, FIshburne actually wanted to play someone else for Marvel, and he hopes that they give him a chance to do the character—should they acquire the rights to Fantastic Four that is.

Talking during the Ant-Man and the Wasp premiere, Fishburne told ComicBook:

“Well, you know this is not my first time in the MCU: I was actually the voice of the Silver Surfer. And if they ever go back to that again – if it was a villain – I would love to do Galactus.”

While I would love for Fishburne to play the face of Galactus as well, I think at best he would be the one providing the voice and motion capture for the character should they bring him to the big screen. A lot of people were disappointed in Rise of the Silver Surfer when Galactus was just a planet-eating cloud, but with the introduction of celestials in the MCU, I think they could work in an actual giant being that eats planets.

For now, we don’t know exactly how big Bill Foster’s role in Ant-Man and the Wasp is. I would love to see him suit up as Goliath though and fight alongside Giant-Man; maybe we can even have a flashback where he’s working together with a young Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne.

Catch Ant-Man and the Wasp in theaters July 5.
