Turns out that Doug Jones will not deliver his own dialogue as The Silver Surfer in 20th Century Fox's "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer."

Variety has confirmed that the voice of the Power Cosmic wielder will be provided by actor Laurence Fishburne instead, who has already joined the flick this week. Fishburne, best known for his role in "The Matrix" trilogy, previously was speculated to be in the running for the voice of God-like villain Galactus yet Variety did note that Fox hasn't decided whether the character will even speak.

Regarding Galactus, AICN recently brought in an interesting tidbit stating that the planet-destroyer is going to look like a storm cloud with its scooper saying the moviegoers should expect something like "Superman/Silver Surfer flying through clouds with Galactus/Jorel (voice-over)."

The second installment of the superhero franchise, "Surfer" this time finds the heroic quartet trying to stop the destruction of Earth prepared by The Silver Surfer while at the same time facing the return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom. Fox has set up June 15, 2007 as the movie's release date.

Hello, my name is Abram, I am from Mcallen, Texas and I just wanted to say "What is Tim Story thinking really", they should of never let go of Doug Jones, his voice is 100 times better than Fishburne, no offense Fishburne is a good actor/performer but his voice does not fit The Silver Surfer, this was a bad call!. I am really upset, I am a big fan of the Fantastic Four & The Silver Surfer and I think that Fishburne's voice is to strong & to deep, it just doesn't sound right, I respect Mr. Fishburne, I have enjoyed his movies and I will support him in any movie/film, I just think he is not the adequet voice for The Silver Surfer.....as a matter a fact I think he would play a Great voice as Galactus, that would be a Brilliant idea, do you think anyone can do something about this? maybe they should let the Fans Vote on who they rather hear as the voice for The Silver Surfer...
