Is The Silver Surfer to Make a MCU debut? Avengers: Infinity War full cast revealed
Yes You’re reading this right. If the report from metacritic.com is 100% accurate, then an unknown actor (and fellow Chicago area native) by the name of Curt Clendenin will play the weary space traveller.
What role will he have in the fight for the infinity stones? Will he have a major cameo appearance like Spidey in Civil War, or will his appearance be more fleeting? Whatever the case may be, this could have major implications going forward into MCU Phase 4.
It’s nearly impossible to find anything on the potential surfer unfortunately. According to IMDb, most of Clendenin’s movie credits were listed as uncredited, which gives credence to his unknown actor status true enough, but also raises more questions than answers to the accuracy of the report. It appears that his background is that of a more comedic actor, which does not match with Silver Surfers personality one bit, further casting a shadow of doubt on if this is true or not.
On a smaller but every bit as equal note, Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, X-men: Days of Future Past) was also mentioned in the release. Could Dinklage reprise his role as Dr. Oliver Trask? Or could he make my closeted Alpha Flight fan heart skip a beat, and take up the role of Puck?!? The latter seems highly unlikely, but anything from Dinklage would be a welcomed addition to the MCU.
I’ve always had mixed feelings about the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. While yes, it will be a visual masterpiece, and will have nearly every character in the MCU to date so far…my heart weeps a tiny bit, because this screams for a “Hey Bub”, an order for a “Fastball Special”, or a declaration that “It’s Clobberin Time!!!” But with just under a month left until Infinity War’s release, this news definitely adds fuel to what is already shaping up to be Marvel’s finest installment to date.
