    So they can put a silver naked man on a surfboard in, but NOT a giant who eats planets? WTF?

    And I thought that the Galactus Swarm was lame...

    I hope he's wrong, because that truly would suck.

    Honestly, I don't see how it's any worse than what they've done with Transformers.

    Geez. What a cop out. I better see those lifeless eyes fixed on Earth, or else.

    WTF? Really? Umm... wow... I wish the original rumors that he wasn't going to be in the movie at all were true now...

    ...this makes me very very sad... :(

    Eh, you know, Galactus would be incredibly difficult to make look convincing, especially with all the physical terrors that something of that mass entering Earths orbit would do.

    So, to be honest, this is ok with me. Rather a cloud than a genuinely poor attempt at a super giant man in purple boots.

    isnt galactus' apperance based on the planet he's about to consume, like, every planet sees him as something different?

    Well, we're getting robots, they're getting clouds. thats pretty bad.

    ...meh. Was expecting an attempt at 616 Galactus would turn out badly, but I'd hoped they'd Ultimates him and have the Gah Lahk Tus.

    Storm cloud that's shouting at the main characters sounds more like Absorbing Man from the Hulk movie (in bad ways).

    I'd like to see a more 616 style Galactus. I don't think it would be to hard. As stated, if you can make a silver guy ride a surfboard and a guy ignite and fly, this shouldn't be to hard.

    Hmm, kinda lame. Like others, I was hoping for something closer to the Galactus we all know and love. But a storm cloud?

    Sounds like an episode of the original Star Trek.

    This doesn't surprise me though. They called Dr. Doom "Vic" throughout the first movie.

    Maybe we only get to see him as a cloud at the end of this movie as a cliffhanger and he becomes the Galactus that we all want in the next one? I can dream.

    maybe he'll be a storm cloud in this one, just briefly, and that'll be his mind vessel here on earth, then the next movie, he'll show up and be like "yo, check me out for reals ya'll" and be all 616 badass.....


    dammit grayman.....thats my line....

    Yah, thats what I thought, maybe he starts off as a storm cloud, then visibly changes as our perception of him alters when we relate to him...

    I mean I thought Galactus appears in the form of whoever is seeing him? So I guess dogs see a big dog in purple boots eating planets?

    Ok I know he's some huge giant in the comic books and that he can eat planets and the like. But in all honesty, why does he have to be a gaint in the flim? Why can't he be like an actor and just let him walk around and observe the destruction he's creating with machines designed to convert the planet into energy or whatever and at the end when he gets close steps into a machine and has the energy converted flow into him?

    And when the heroes try to stop him you could find he has like super powers like Galactus would have. It allows people to see a form of Galactus and have an actor play him and doesn't run the risk of looking cheesy or something? I know the thought is kind of cookie cutter but if it was developed i'm sure it could turn out quite fine.

    You know, Edge, I like that idea. Sure, I'd love to have a giant freak in a purple suit, being a Marvel purist and all, but your idea is second-best. Anything beats a cosmic cloud of crap.

    I have a feeling that the storm cloud might be a portent for the next movie--everyone sees a giant purple storm cloud and goes "OMG what's that?" then the movie ends. Or this just could be the single most retarded f*cking idea ever.
