Unfantastic sequel title

The official title for the sequel to 2005's Fantastic Four Adaptation has been dubbed "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer", no doubt because "Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer" sounded quite plain and "Fantastic Four 2" would just confuse our already mentally fragile youth.

One wonders exactly what rises from the films synopsis in which a certain Galactic entity is left completely out of the fold, according to Superhero Hype:
In the sequel, the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of The Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost.
It's at this point I sit back and think about the proposed Fantastic Four film that could have been had Peyton Reed stayed on as director. Hell Steven Soderbergh showed interest in it as well.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer begins shooting next month with the four leads returning and Doug Jones of Hellboy fame to be contributing to the performance of the Silver Surfer
