Reminiscence Star Daniel Wu Talks Playing Heroes and Villains, Shares Love For the Silver Surfer

Daniel Wu is a star with a vast filmography who will be seen next in Reminiscence, the new sci-fi thriller starring Hugh Jackman that was helmed by Westworld's Lisa Joy. Wu has played both heroes and villains throughout his career, this time taking on the role of bad guy Saint Joe. ComicBook recently had the chance to chat with Wu, and we asked if he had a preference. While the actor has more fun playing villains, there is one character with both an antagonist and heroic history he'd be interested in playing: Fantastic Four's Silver Surfer.
