Nathan Fillion is no stranger to working with James Gunn. They’ve worked together on Slither, Super, and maybe Guardians of the Galaxy. You read that right. Fillion teased a possible cameo in the upcoming Marvel film during a recent appearance at the St. Louis Comic Con.
A fan referenced Fillion’s history with Gunn and asked if he wanted a part in Guardians. Because Fillion is awesome, he replied coyly and caught everyone off guard:
“[Want] to get a part? Or maybe did. I’m just saying maybe. Maybe it’ll be a surprise. Maybe check the credits of the movie when you watch it.”
Looking at the “galaxy” part of the title, it’s not a stretch to believe Fillion could be unrecognizable as an alien covered in prosthetics or make-up. Alternatively, he could also be making a quick cameo. You can hear his answer and judge for yourself at the 38:22 mark:
The tone of his voice is certainly interesting, and it’s a great non-answer that probably wouldn’t get him in trouble with Marvel. However, it’s also good to keep Marvel’s extreme secrecy rules in mind. They lock down spoilers and are very protective about their movies. So, either Fillion’s part is small enough that Marvel doesn’t mind the actor dropping hints, or it’s not true. Either way, I can’t imagine Fillion would risk anything that could cost him future work with the company.
I hope it’s legit because I’m in favor of seeing Fillion in Guardians of the Galaxy or any Marvel film. What do you think about his tease? Let us know in the comments!
