No Ant-Man, But Would Nathan Fillion Do Guardians Of The Galaxy?


Nathan Fillion’s name gets thrown out almost every time a new Marvel movie is announced. It seems like it’s just a matter of time before he makes it to the Marvel Universe. His friends have gotten big jobs with Marvel. Joss Whedon is the Godfather of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and James Gunn was recently announced for Guardians of the Galaxy. With fans wanting Fillion to do everything from Ant-man to Nathan Drake of the Uncharted series, he remains very popular. When asked by MTV at the Toronto Film Festival if he’d like take a part in Guardians, possibly of the main man Star-Lord, Fillion had this to say:

We had dinner the other night and he told me all about it, before everyone found out. I was on the inside on that one. Over some toro, tuna belly, we discussed how excited he is, how nervous he is, but how he wanted it very badly. He wanted it very badly. I think it’s in very capable hands. It’s in the right hands. Having worked with the man, I know what he’s capable of.

When my friends have fantastic news like that, I don’t take the opportunity to say ‘So what about me?’ I’m very busy right now with a job that I’m grateful for. I’ve made a commitment [to ‘Castle’] and I have to see it through. And I’m really happy to. I worked a long time to be on a television program that has some level of success, and I’ve gotten more than I can shake a stick at with Castle. At this point it’s hard to say ‘give me more.’

Yet again Fillion crushes many a fans hopes of seeing him in a superhero flick. Whether it’s just a Marvel bias (he did voice Hal Jordan in several DC animated movies) or just a reluctance to leave his hit show Castle, Fillion seems to be staying out of the heroics business for the foreseeable future. What do you think? Would you have wanted a Fillion Star-Lord? Do you want him popping up in a Marvel or DC movie before long?
