Rumors (and fan's predictions) have been flying around for a while now that eventual Nova Prime, Richard Rider, would show up in Marvel's first endevour into space. Well, it looks like the fans may have ben right, as according to Latino Review, the character will appear!

Apparently the after credits scene in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy will feature the human rocket, Nova. And as far as Dave Gonzalez can find out (he was unable to confirm), the character will be played by Firefly's Nathan Fillion! Which rendition of the character we will see was not specified, but going by his likeness to the comic book counterpart, it would be safe to make the assumption that Fillion will be playing Richard Rider.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand - with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.

I can confirm that Nova will not be played by me.
Pasto - 6/20/2014, 11:47 AM
The teaser image for this should be Nathan's character from Firefly.
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/20/2014, 11:49 AM
Shouldn't the article technically be called "Is Nathan Fillion playing [Spoiler] In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY"?

LOL
LMB10 - 6/20/2014, 11:49 AM
Damn, was just writing this up

Not a terrible choice, he was good in Firefly
Pasto - 6/20/2014, 11:50 AM
Abary
No. We were told that Nova would pop up a while ago.
Starfox - 6/20/2014, 11:50 AM
PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN!
Pasto - 6/20/2014, 11:51 AM
Marvel news week if I've ever seen one.
Mrcool210 - 6/20/2014, 11:51 AM
I hope so, but i doubt it.
charlie2094 - 6/20/2014, 11:51 AM
This would be awesome if true! Hope it does turn out like this, would love to see Fillion in a Marvel role
ALegendaryPanda - 6/20/2014, 11:51 AM
This would be [frick]ing awesome! I really hope it's true
RextheKing - 6/20/2014, 11:53 AM
If this is true, I will need to bring a couple extra pairs of undies into the theatre.
Sxcory - 6/20/2014, 11:54 AM
Mother of God. YES!
Gusto - 6/20/2014, 11:54 AM
No way. He's too freakin' old!
RextheKing - 6/20/2014, 11:56 AM
Yeah you probably should remove Nova from the title.
MecoBoy - 6/20/2014, 11:57 AM
Nova?

Nova tu madre!
BasedThanos - 6/20/2014, 11:59 AM
Nova should be younger. Not buying this sounds made up.
McNyagano - 6/20/2014, 11:59 AM
Well..

Brainiac13 - 6/20/2014, 11:59 AM
Too old for the character....
SusanFuentes - 6/20/2014, 12:02 PM
Why does everyone want Nathan for everything?

He's far too old for Rich.

Rich is supposed to be a teen when he joins the corp and in his mid 20's during the events of Annihilation.

Not to mention Nathan isn't exactly in the best of shape.
3DWitchHunt - 6/20/2014, 12:03 PM
lolwut?
Fillion'll be nearing 50 soon. I thought Rich was a young adult...
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 6/20/2014, 12:03 PM
Don't know much about Nova, so don't care who plays him
sKeemAn - 6/20/2014, 12:04 PM
Wow. Nathan Fillion may be too old to play Nova
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/20/2014, 12:06 PM
@Gusto
"No way. He's too freakin' old!"

Haha, oh the irony.
sKeemAn - 6/20/2014, 12:07 PM
I doubt this is true
Phronesis - 6/20/2014, 12:07 PM
Never been a big fan of Nova so whatever.
3DWitchHunt - 6/20/2014, 12:08 PM
TheAbaryMan369
LMAO!

SAFETY ALERT!
Hi Guys,
a word of warning if you plan on
heading over to the local community
college in my town with a fake "Press"
badge that I made with my Seasame Street
art kit that my mom got me for goin' two
whole weeks without getting my junk caught
in anything or electrocuting myself.
Ok...you can do that. But, whatever you do
don't sneak into the girls volleyball team
locker room and attempt to set up a sophisticated
network of webcams. For if you do...Norma, the
300lb janitor, will surely catch me and proceed to
beat the bejesus outta me with her hard ass mop handle
about my breast, head, chest, neck, arms & legs area
whilst screaming, "Godamn you little pervert! How
many [frick]ing beatings is it gonna take to keep your
pervy, creepy ass outta here?"
Now, your thinking, "Wow, that's gotta suck!", right?
It gets worse...especially when the entire girls
volleyball team comes in all fired up from playing
volleyball and finds me layed out, crying like a girl,
with mop welts all over my punk ass...and then, proceeds
to kick me all over with great ferocity. Repeatedly.
What the hell ever happened to freedom of the press, man?
This shit's unconstitutional! Now, if someone could come
and collect my severely damaged, limp body and take me to
the emergency room, I'd be greatly in your debt. As, I'm
1000% sure I'm bleed externally and pretty sure I'm bleeding
internally too.
The first amendment is no joking matter, people!
Your pal,
Gusto St. Cool


MrBlackjack - 6/20/2014, 12:08 PM
I always pictured Rich younger than Fillion, but it might work.
Gusto - 6/20/2014, 12:08 PM
LOL...shut up, Abar!
I'm still spry!
Nick56 - 6/20/2014, 12:08 PM
I still have no idea why internet fanboys love Fillion so much. Is it because he was on an overrated failed tv show a decade ago?
MrMartinMarvel - 6/20/2014, 12:09 PM
He's definitely too old for the part, but maybe I could make an exception this one time. After all, it's Nathan [frick]ing Fillion.
Omarvls - 6/20/2014, 12:09 PM
If Ben Affleck can play Batman (2019) at 46
then this guy can play Nova at 43

String - 6/20/2014, 12:10 PM
Terribe -TERRIBLE choice. Hope this isn't true. Nova gained his powers while in High School. Nathan would had been good back in '90's but not now.
Omarvls - 6/20/2014, 12:11 PM
NOVA is BADASS

He would rule on the big screen

DAMN

Make it happen Marvel
and if you give us Black Panther

You would officially be on a other level
SuperioR23SupermaN - 6/20/2014, 12:12 PM
OK I'll take my grain of salt now...
OpticBlastWins - 6/20/2014, 12:13 PM
Yeah i dont get all the hype for fillion. Dude isnt that good an actor
Desrow - 6/20/2014, 12:14 PM
Hmm doubt it's true, but could be great if he lose some weight.
batz11 - 6/20/2014, 12:14 PM
Gus, have you ever been lucky enough to dick-ride-her?

Hey Dev, I didn't know Nova was gonna be in GotG, thanks a lot for ruining the entire [frick]ing movie for me, asshole!...actually, you just ruined the entire [frick]ing MCU for me, asshole! Actually, you even ruined BvS and Justice League for me too, asshole!!!

Now that I calmed down and thought about it some more, you [frick]ing ruined Think Like a Man 2" as well...[frick]!
EzioKenway1225 - 6/20/2014, 12:14 PM
Nick56-or its because he is one of the coolest guys on the planet and incredibly charismatic
