Go full camp!

The only way to make Galactus work as a villain in movies is to go full camp with him. None of this "evil planet-eating space fart" nonsense. Make him the ridiculous, weird, planet-gobbling, purple humanoid giant with a crazy space-pope hat that he is in the comics! It's the only way the character is ever going to work!

I mean seriously, if they pulled that kind of nonsense with other heroes, Marvel would have never become the hit they are today. Take "Guardians of the Galaxy," for instance. That concept is absolutely bat-shit bizarre - a supposedly human kid whose real father is a sentient rogue planet gets abducted by aliens and befriends a walking/talking tree, a talking raccoon, a sexy green alien woman with the progenitor of daddy issues, and a large gray-and-red autistic Machoke ripoff seeking to avenge his murdered family; they then proceed to become space pirates who save the universe from the minions of Evil Grimace (who is basically hunting for a device that'll give him admin privileges to the source code of the universe) simply because they live in that universe - and yet by leaning into that ridiculousness, they made it work!
