We all remember Nathan Fillion from the cult classic Firefly and the spinoff movie Serenity both written by writer, director, and producer Joss Whedon. He was also in one of my favorite TV mini-series Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, which was also written and directed by Joss Whedon.I mean the guy just loves Fillion. So do I! But he is most recognized from his most recent and most popular series Castle.
Next year, May 5th 2017, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be coming out. We just got a preview of a few mock posters featuring none other than Fillion. He is playing comic book star Simon Williams. Williams is the alter ego to Wonder Man. This character was once part of The Avengers, The West Coast Avengers and even a S.H.E.I.L.D. agent.
We do know the Williams becomes a Hollywood actor and posters of Williams were seen outside a movie theater in Cantersville, GA.where Guardians 2 is being filmed. The posters suggest they will have a Simon Williams film festival. There is no exact confirmation that he will be in the movie but it is pretty likely.
Nathan Fillion made a cameo appearance in the first Guardians of the Galaxy, in the guise of an intergalactic inmate. Is this another cameo or a large role? Stay tuned for more news on the upcoming film.
