Ineson’s character Galactus is an intergalactic being who feeds off the life force of planets and he might have made a mistake by choosing Earth. The character was portrayed as a cosmic cloud in 2007’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and this did not sit right with the fans because the comics created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby see him as a cosmic giant.
