I claim this as a personal win since I was the one hosting the "Firefly" panel with Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin and Alan Tudyk. But in the Q&A portion of a panel at last weekend's Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con, a fan asked if Fillion had been wanting to get a role in director James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" Marvel-verse flick opening Aug. 1. It is a solid question, since Fillion and Gunn (a St. Louis native) are friends and collaborated on Slither.
What was Fillion's response? Revealing:
“Wanting to get a part? Or maybe did? I’m just saying maybe, maybe there’ll be a surprise. Maybe check the credits of the movie when you watch it."
That sure sounds like Fillion will be showing up on the big screen this summer. It might be in a cameo role or maybe Gunn is setting up Fillion for a future role. Show up to see the "Guardians" in action this August to find out.
