James Gunn is all set and gearing up for the release of the Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special. The special presentation may surprise viewers with another character in the MCU, right after the latest trend. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it won’t be Silver Surfer or Galactus.
Silver Surfer is the gateway to the introduction of Galactus. The planet-eating monster in the MCU has been enticing audiences for far too long.
Silver Surfer and Galactus are not in James Gunn Holiday special
Following a tweet from a reviewer who allegedly reviewed James Gunn’s holiday special, the tweet contained some clues. Hinting at the return of a special character, the tweet went along the lines of “watch the post-credit scene for a silver surprise.”

James Gunn was quick to act when he saw the tweet and simply replied with “fake”. The answer makes it clear that Silver Surfer won’t be making an appearance in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special. The return of Silver Surfer had been talked about and rumored from the Avengers: Infinity War but the silver figure never appeared.
Silver Surfer is the gateway for the entrance of Galactus, a much revered antagonist in the MCU. After Iron Man’s death and Captain America’s retirement, it looks like the new Avengers will have to battle the mighty beast if he ever makes an appearance. However, all hope is not lost, as Disney and Marvel seem to be keeping a close eye on Silver Surfer and Galactus. It has been reported that Disney will offer a Silver Surfer presentation before the release of the new The Fantastic Four film!

Before the Marvel Cinematic Universe became what it is today, 21st Century Fox brought the Silver Surfer to the big screen. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) saw Galactus’ silver sidekick/servant trying to kill the Fantastic Four. Although the franchise suffered terribly at the box office, the character became an integral part of people’s minds as Galactus would eventually make an appearance in the MCU.
Reports of Silver Surfer getting his own special presentation is indeed good news for MCU fans as the The Fantastic Four is gearing up for a supposed reboot (the plot is unknown at the time). But back to the main point, James Gunn doesn’t need to introduce Silver Surfer in the guardians of the galaxy franchise as he is simply tying the knots and finishing his trilogy.
James Gunn is also the newly appointed co-director of DC Studios under his leadership. The Suicide Squad (2021) essentially revived the franchise. The Peacemaker The series has also garnered a lot of admiration from people and James Gunn also remains excited about the future of DC.
Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is set for a November 25, 2022 release date and will be available to stream on Disney+.
