“Inside source has told us that Silver Surfer & Beta Ray Bill are planned for Thor: Love and Thunder,” the Twitter account claims. “Great if you own Silver Surfer 4! This book has blown up ever since Disney got the rights back from FOX! I don’t give a sh-t what actor plays either them, they’ll both be CGI.”

Regarding who could be playing the characters in the MCU, most recently saw it claimed that former Batman actor Christian Bale may suit up in mo-cap to play Beta Ray Bill in Thor 4 or possibly as The Minotaur; it’s said that Christian Bale is currently in talks with Marvel for Love and Thunder.
Regarding the MCU version of the Silver Surfer, Marvel’s Sentinel of the Spaceways and herald of Galactus, previous rumors have offered up that none other than Keanu Reeves is being considered to play the part.
