Nathan Fillion Teases He May Appear In Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

The Castle star who's been longtime rumored for the title role in Marvel's Ant-Man, Nathan Fillion, has revealed or rather hinted that he'll feature in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Check it out!

Having worked frequently with and become good friends of both Joss Whedon and James Gunn, Nathan Fillion has been longtime rumored, or favored, for a role in Marvel Studios' ever-growing cinematic universe. While the actor has previously declared being tied up with ABC's Castle series and not being famous enough as reasons why he has yet to play a Marvel character, Fillion attended the Wizard World Comic-Con over the weekend, where he was asked by a fan if he was wanting a part in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy. “Wanting to get a part… or maybe did,” Nathan Fillion responded. He then paused before adding, “I’m just saying maybe. Maybe you’ll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits.” Guardians of the Galaxy recently wrapped reshoots, for which director James Gunn has hinted involving: “Anything we want, but didnt get,...something to make the movie better, cameo idea.” For video of the Firefly panel (via Hypeable), where Nathan Fillion dropped the big hint, skip over to the 38:30 mark below. What do you think?

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.

MsDarkPhoenix - 4/7/2014, 9:04 AM
I don't know about this...

rockerdude22 - 4/7/2014, 9:04 AM
Would be awesome if true! Who could he possibly be? Hmmm...
Pasto - 4/7/2014, 9:04 AM
Check the credits huh?

Could Nathan possibly be....THANOS????
Pasto - 4/7/2014, 9:06 AM
Lozzy is GOTG?

*Mind blown*

Lozzy - 4/7/2014, 9:06 AM
Hmmm Fillion as Thanos would be interesting.
DaVinci31 - 4/7/2014, 9:06 AM

Wait so if you're not last, you're first?
Lozzy - 4/7/2014, 9:06 AM

Pasto - 4/7/2014, 9:09 AM
Remember, IF Fillion IS Thanos, I was the first user to ever say that.
charlie2094 - 4/7/2014, 9:09 AM
Is he our Thanos? :P

Lol, be cool if did have a cameo, even better if it was a full role! Would love to see!
Pasto - 4/7/2014, 9:09 AM
Screencap my comment where I say he could be Thanos.

Yo, where's the source?
mawilli4 - 4/7/2014, 9:10 AM
what if he's Cosmo...
Bearjew - 4/7/2014, 9:11 AM
Maybe he's Adam Warlock or reprising his role from firefly
LMB10 - 4/7/2014, 9:11 AM
Adam Warlock
rockerdude22 - 4/7/2014, 9:12 AM
If he's in the credits, perhaps he has a bigger role in an upcoming film? I could maybe see him as Rich Rider but idk
Lozzy - 4/7/2014, 9:13 AM
I doubt it's Adam Warlock. Fillion is too out of shape for a role like Adam Warlock.
ALegendaryPanda - 4/7/2014, 9:13 AM
Hell yes! I really hope this happens!
DaVinci31 - 4/7/2014, 9:13 AM
rockerdude22 - 4/7/2014, 9:14 AM
Oh yeah, never thought about Warlock! Even though I always imagined someone like Benedict Cumberbatch playing Warlock, I wouldn't mind if Fillion had that role either!

I've been getting more and more underwhelmed by this movie, but this is the most interesting thing about it to me so far.

And I'm not in any way an anti-humor person, I've enjoyed the humor in Marvel movies so far, but this movie just looks way too sophomoric for me.
ruadh - 4/7/2014, 9:17 AM
Also his comment about watching the credits to see him...I'm guessing it's a quick cameo under heavy makeup, and the only way to see who he was is to read his name.
BrowniesExplode - 4/7/2014, 9:20 AM
I wish he played Hank pym but Michael Douglas is a great actor.
NovaCorpsFan - 4/7/2014, 9:22 AM
Um, no to him being Warlock OR Rich Rider. He's a good actor, but I want Nova to start out on Earth and move into the cosmic side overtime.
NovaCorpsFan - 4/7/2014, 9:22 AM
I would love if he was reprising his role from Firefly and he's playing a card game with Star-Lord at some point.
Joementum - 4/7/2014, 9:24 AM
He was the best part in Much Ado About Nothin
Jacklincolnvstheworld - 4/7/2014, 9:25 AM
what about Richard Rider?
HongKongPooey - 4/7/2014, 9:25 AM
Thanos, Adam Warlock or Nova please
