It seems director James Gunn tweeted over the weekend that geek superstar Nathan Fillion would indeed have a cameo in the upcoming Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. Cue the fanboy squeees! The rumors are that Fillion will be playing Richard Rider a.k.a. Nova, cosmic superhero.
What’s cool is Nova was once a teenager but grew up in the comics so Fillion could easily pull this off. What version of Nova is yet to be seen or if even we’re in the right ballpark here. Nerdist hopes in a wild way that Fillion voices Ego the Living Planet. I guess I could see that in a way. Sorta.
What do you geeks feel?
