Nathan Fillion to cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy, plus new Empire covers

06.23.2014

Sorry guys, but that rumor you may have seen circulating online over the weekend about Nathan Fillion playing Nova Prime in James Gunn's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY isn't true. Gunn debunked the rumor on his twitter, however it doesn't mean the Serenity star won't be appearing in the director's new movie. James Gunn later tweeted Nathan Fillion will have a "fun cameo" in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.

While I'm excited Nathan Fillion will appear in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, I was really hoping he would have a bigger role in Marvel's Cinematic Universe than just a "fun cameo." Doesn't mean he won't be able to play a different character or have a larger part in a future film, but I'm slightly disappointed he hasn't been able to land a bigger part in the MCU.

With that out of the way, let's check out Empire's new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY covers. One gives us yet another look at the superhero team, however the second cover features the villains appearing in the upcoming Marvel movie, including possibly the best look yet at Lee Pace's Ronan the Accuser.

Check out the a-holes:

James Gunn's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY will open on August 1, 2014.

Going out on a limb but my gut keeps telling me...

Smoke and mirrors... Can't help shake this feeling they are going to do a big reveal that he's been cast as Dr. Strange.

Oh man, I don't care if you're joking or serious, Fillion as J'Son would be awesome.

Mal

He'll bump into the Guardians as Mal and give Star Lord a strange look, guaranteed.

Cameos, cameos, cameos...just give people their own movies. Fillion in GotG & Cruise and Pegg rumored for SW7. I'm just waiting for the announcement of a Will Ferrell cameo in Ant-Man....oh yeah, just you wait, Grammy's bunyons be feelin' it.

These covers are cool as hell and only make the anticipation and waiting that much more exciting.

And if Fillion doesn't get a role in the Marvel Universe and if DC does indeed recast Green Lantern for their Justice League Universe, then I would like to see him play Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern. He has the look and the chops for it and also did great voice work for the character before in DC's animated films. Plus, he's a huge fan of the character in general, so why not.

It was fun enough seeing the Halloween Castle intro as him dressed as Mal so IF they do that for GOTG, that could be fun too. Just wish Nathan Fillion would get a real Marvel or DC character already. He's done DC voice work in the past.

These Empire covers are badass! My wallet is breaking apart because of international magazine like Empire but Man! They are so worth the money.

Love the Empire cover annotating "raccoon". They totally get it. Fillion's cameo in Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Sea of Monsters was probably the best part in the whole thing. Well, he doesn't have to be Mal, he could be a really really lost Richard Castle.

He's 'portrayed' Mal Reynolds on Castle but didn't use the name, maybe that's a way around it. Perhaps in Guardians, he'll just be known or called the space cowboy..

I would like Fillion to have a major role in the MCU, but if it has to be a small cameo seeing him as Mal again would be SO worth it!!!!

Hey Joblo, maybe its cuz im half sleep but I think you should get someone to write over the weekend. All of todays headlines I read on other sites. Sounds stupid but I have a hard time finding some stories to be true til I read it on here.

Well that tease sorta kills my interest. We've been calling for him to get a big a role and we get a fun lil cameo. And I'll believe he isn't Nova AFTER the movie comes out but yes I think he most likely will be Mal

He will be Mal

as "Optimist Prime" I immediately thought he, too, will be Mal. If so that is a pretty cool cameo. It makes sense that it would be him.
