Nathan Fillion Says He Isn't "Famous Enough" For THE AVENGERS 2
When asked if he would be interested in re-teaming with Joss Whedon for the planned sequel to Marvel's The Avengers, Castle star Nathan Fillion says that he can't see himself as a part of such a film.
For those who really want to see Nathan Fillion re-team with director Joss Whedon for a future Avengers film, you may be disappointed. Speaking with Digital Spy, Fillion (who previously worked with Whedon on Firefly, Serenity and Buffy The Vampire Slayer) was asked about his possible involvement with the already announced sequel to Marvel's The Avengers, and he suggests that he may not be "famous enough" for such a role. "I have to be honest. The entertainment industry is an industry. I love telling stories but finance does meet art. If I were in charge of an Avengers sequel I would be very concerned about what kind of money I could make back overseas, and these kinds of things. I'm not quite at that level yet where I could just be plopped in there but I'm getting there."
The actor (who also stars in the television series Castle) added, "I've had more than my fair share of Joss Whedon projects. I find it very difficult, even being the selfish kind of guy I am, to say 'give me more'."
Fillion has been a fan favorite for the role of Hank Pym/Ant-Man for a while, despite the actor saying that he wasn't interested in playing the character. But, should Fillion have a future role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, who would you like to see him play? I personally would like to see him play Star-Lord in the planned Guardians Of The Galaxy movie.
