Scott Porter Wants To Play 'Nova' In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Scott Porter is no stranger to the Marvel Universe after voicing 'Cyclops' in the X-Men anime series and has now put his name forward for a role in a future Marvel Studios movie, expressing interest in bringing either 'Iron Fist' or 'Nova' to the big screen!

"Marvel just announced that they're doing 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' which is another property that I love. I read it growing up," Scott Porter told MTV Splash Page in a recent interview. This isn't the first time that the actor (best known for staring in Friday Night Lights) has expressed interest in bringing one of Marvel's characters to the big screen and he went on to reveal that he has now set his sights on someone other than 'Iron Fist'. "I'd love to play Nova or another [cosmic character]."

"Gunn is a unique choice. I think he could be a really great shephard for that property," added Porter. "I think 'Guardians' is going to be a lot of fun. I think it'll be very cool. I thought the next thing I might try and go after is 'Heroes for Hire,' but it looks like 'Guardians' is around, so..."

The actor finished the interview by making it clear that he most definitely has his sights set on a superhero role at some point in the near future. "I think any kid who gets into the acting business, they have a couple of things that they always wanted to do. For me, it was like, play a war hero; play an athlete, which I've gotten to do; die a horrible death in a horror movie, which I've gotten to do; and then be a superhero. I've marked two things off the list, and I'm working on the others."
