Laurence Fishburne will provide the voice of the Silver Surfer in "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," which opens June 15.
Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis return for the sequel to Fox's 2005 adaptation of the long-running Marvel Comics series.
The character of the Silver Surfer, a herald to a cosmic world-devouring being known as Galactus, is played by noted character actor Doug Jones. He provided performance and movement references for Peter Jackson's Weta Digital production house, which oversaw visual effects for the movie.
Fishburne begins voice work this week. Internet rumors had the actor voicing Galactus.
Fishburne is best known for his work in the "Matrix" trilogy. His voice is heard as the narrator in the computer-animated film "TMNT."
