UPDATE: Nathan Fillion's Role In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Revealed?

James Gunn himself has confirmed that his old Slither buddy Nathan Fillion will indeed pop up for a cameo appearance in Marvel's space adventure..but who will he be playing? We know it won't be Nova, but if you don't mind being SPOILED, The Schmoes reckon they have the answer..

So yes, fan favorite actor Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle, Slither) will appear in Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy..kinda! The Schmoes report that he'll actually be playing a motion capture character, and providing the voice. Well, unless they plan on sticking him in a dog costume that is..


"According our very reliable source with intimate knowledge of this and the production has spoken exclusively to us about this and we here at Schmoes Know have our answer: Nathan Fillion will be voicing the part of Cosmo, the psychic Russian cosmonaut dog that has appeared in the Guardians of the Galaxy comics."

Many of us guessed it'd be Cosmo, and there you have it. A fun little cameo I'm sure you'll agree.

UPDATE: A tweet from James Gunn casts some doubt on this, BUT, it's important to keep in mind that directors/actors/producers etc will frequently flat out lie about this sort of thing.

the schmoes were the ones who got the Michael B Jordan being cast as Johnny Storm scoop months before it was confirmed so just maybe..hmmm..it would be a cool cameo though
BlackIceJoe - 6/24/2014, 9:31 AM
A dog is cool. So I look forward to hearing Nathen playing Cosmo.
DylanTBest - 6/24/2014, 9:34 AM
Knew it.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/24/2014, 9:37 AM
THAT is awesome!
SuperCat - 6/24/2014, 9:37 AM
Meh.

Doopie - 6/24/2014, 9:37 AM
a lot of people called this. I was not one of them
Ramiel - 6/24/2014, 9:41 AM
I hope this isn't true. I want to see him as Mal.
LMB10 - 6/24/2014, 9:42 AM
Knew it

They could've found anyone, really.

"Cosmo, the psychic Russian cosmonaut dog"

I know a lot of you guys love this kind of stuff, but this is just too over the top for my tastes.
EzioKenway1225 - 6/24/2014, 9:43 AM
Phronesis-yeah they could have but Gunn is friends with Fillion so he just asked him to do this very small part
EzioKenway1225 - 6/24/2014, 9:45 AM
also..i found out about the tracking for guardians ,i hope it does become a hit

Early tracking done by Adobe Systems' Adobe Digital Index (ADI) indicated that the film would be a box office hit. ADI used the number of times the movie's trailer was viewed and the number of mentions it received on Twitter, Facebook and other social-media activity from March 1 to May 10, 2014 to determine whether the film's domestic box office would exceed or fall short of its production budget, and classified Guardians of the Galaxy as "predicted profitable". Profitable movies have 2.2 times more YouTube trailer views than movies that are unprofitable, and they also have five times as much growth week-over-week in social "buzz".

this movie is not gonna be everyones wheelhouse but i know im gonna like it alot
EzioKenway1225 - 6/24/2014, 9:49 AM
the guy shoots Castle almost all year so there would be no way he would appear in a full fledged on screen marvel role anytime soon
Enphlieuwince - 6/24/2014, 9:49 AM
Not bad. His performance was the only thing remotely entertaining from the Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters film.
TheManFromMars - 6/24/2014, 9:51 AM
God, I hope this is true! I'd love for Cosmo to appear.
BatzFTWfan - 6/24/2014, 9:51 AM
Better Cosmo not be present in post-credit scene like dissappoting Iron Man 3's, it should tease us a new character who will be focused in future. Like Adam Warlock or Kang.
Gusto - 6/24/2014, 9:52 AM
Gusto Jr. is gonna be thrilled.

"the guy shoots Castle almost all year so there would be no way he would appear in a full fledged on screen marvel role anytime soon"

This would be true if the show has 60 episodes in a season. No show films all year.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 6/24/2014, 9:52 AM
A dog....
EzioKenway1225 - 6/24/2014, 9:52 AM
enph-nathan fillion imo is always entertaining,i didnt know this but he played a recurring villain in Buffy known as Caleb,i heard he was pretty sadistic and menacing in that show

PsychoticSpaceRaccoon - 6/24/2014, 9:52 AM
Hopefully this cameo leads to a larger role for Cosmo in the (fingers crossed) sequel. I don't want him fighting alongside the team, but if they do eventually choose knowhere as they base of operations, I'd love Cosmo to be the security chief there.
Arrowhead77 - 6/24/2014, 9:53 AM
Dissapointed....I wanted him as Nova.
EzioKenway1225 - 6/24/2014, 9:53 AM
ruadh - thats true,i heard he shoots like almost all year but oh well.
EzioKenway1225 - 6/24/2014, 9:55 AM
this movie is gonna get a mixed response, it just isnt gonna gel with some people
TuckstheHalls - 6/24/2014, 9:56 AM
didn't James Gunn talk about Cosmo appearing a sequel?

I do believe there's a clip of that somewhere
Pending - 6/24/2014, 9:56 AM
Just a voice? Laaaame.
cipher - 6/24/2014, 9:56 AM
ezio- Ha, CALEB!! He was a f*cking bastard in that one.

I f*cking love Buffy.
sicknimon - 6/24/2014, 9:57 AM
Can he do Russian????
charlie2094 - 6/24/2014, 9:57 AM
Think a lot of people pretty much guessed this, easily see it being true, with Cosmo reported to cameo. Would rather Fillion had a full role though, prefer him to be someone else.

batz11 - 6/24/2014, 9:57 AM
Damn it, Gus wanted him as Green Lantern! LMAO...
EzioKenway1225 - 6/24/2014, 9:59 AM
he could still be someone else in the marvel universe, he is gonna most likely be doing a russian accent for this so maybe he could pop up in the flesh in another marvel movie
CrimsonFlash - 6/24/2014, 9:59 AM
Was really hoping for a big role in the marvel universe. Maybe in the future=(
SoundWave - 6/24/2014, 10:00 AM
terrible...
Batmaniac - 6/24/2014, 10:01 AM
I thought he was. Cosmo is crucial to the GOTG mythos, so I'm glad he's in the movie.
TuckstheHalls - 6/24/2014, 10:01 AM


he mentions Cosmo during this, we'll have to do some digging to find it
Gusto - 6/24/2014, 10:01 AM
batz...I'm gonna smack you on your dong.
NovaCorpsFan - 6/24/2014, 10:02 AM
Ha, I knew it!
NovaCorpsFan - 6/24/2014, 10:04 AM
Anyone who wanted him as Nova can go [frick] yourselves, that makes no sense whatsoever! Fillion is 43 and Richard Rider has never advanced past the age of thirty in the comics.
