It looks as if Nathan Fillion will be acting in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Well, there's some VERY interesting pictures floating around from the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 set, so let's get to it! It's been rumored that fan-favorite Nathan Fillion might be taking a small part in the James Gunn-directed sequel, and the following confirms it. Thanks to ComicBook.com, via Jonathan Hunter, there are some set-pictures showing Fillion in the role of Simon Williams. So who the hell is Simon Williams?

In short, Simon Williams (also known as Wonder Man), was part of a group called the Masters of Evil before reforming and joining the Avengers. After a time, he decided to drop the superhero bit and explore an acting career. It looks as if this is the Wonder Man we might see in GUARDIANS 2, if at all. These set-pictures show off a Simon Williams film festival, with several posters fearing Fillion's face on them. Take a look!

Now, for all we know, this could just be a very brief Easter Egg thrown into the film. I certainly wouldn't put it past Gunn to go to these lengths to include such a beloved actor, but also take note that this means we'll see Earth at some point in the film. That raises all sorts of exciting questions. Will the Guardians actually go to Earth? Will they interact with any other Marvel heroes there? Gunn has stated that this film will not be setting up INFINITY WARS at all, but perhaps we'll see a glimpse of what to expect from the Guardians visiting our planet. In any case, this opens up some exciting possibilities!

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.

This is pretty cool. I'm not sure if Wonder Man is a big or popular enough character to be brought into the MCU. I'm familiar with him from the 90's when I was reading comics. But I don't think he's really been around that much in the last decade or so. Regardless, it will be interesting to what extent he's used in the movie. Is this just an easter egg in the background during a scene on Earth? Is this a way of introducing him to the cast? (In which case, that's awesome they're using

And then, why are they on Earth? (Is it a flashback to show how Quill's father met his mother? Do the GOTG go to Earth for some reason?) So many questions...

Wish Marvel would do Simon Williams spin-off movie. Star-Lord reminds me of Malcolm Reynolds in Firefly

This will be a flashback explaining how Quill's father met his mother.

That being said, Nathan Fillion as Wonder Man could be part of Agent Carter Season 3. Simon Williams is a two bit actor who volunteers for Stark's super soldier program but instead of becoming a super soldier he chooses to go back to acting and perform his own stunts. Hilarity ensues. Meanwhile, a second volunteer for the super soldier program takes on the Mantle of Captain America and ends up going nuts and Wonder

Season 4 could deal with Ant Man and the Winter Soldier.

Whether it will just be barely seen in the background in passing or something larger now or in the future, either way that's fucking awesome. Wonder Man was pretty big when I was younger reading Avengers so I've wanted to see him for a very long time.

First, FUCKING AWESOME!!!. Now with that out of the way lol, I would love to see the actual Wonder Man in Marvel. Hell you need all hands on deck for Thanos. But to finally have Fillion in a comic movie, and not be fully realized at some point, would be criminal. Yeah he's getting older, but the man can get into shape if needed even at his age. I 'd love to see him all powered up, the man deserves it.

It would be cool to see him have another role in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. He could be to Guardians what Bruce Campbell was to Raimi's Spider Man trilogy.
