My my! Apparently Marvel has pulled a fast one on us! Nathan Fillion, our golden Captain of Firefly fame, is rumored to have joined Marvel Studios in a big BIG way! As with all Marvel movies, [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073) will have a post-credits scene. Latino Review says it knows who is featured in the post-credits scene. As the story was broken by Latino Review and not officially confirmed, obviously take this with a grain of salt.
[Warning : Potential Obvious spoilers below]
With regard to Guardians of the Galaxy Latino Review says:
We’re gonna see some Thanos and we’re going to see a post credits scene that has in it and…...We’re gonna see Nova.
And then they go on to say:
Here’s the part I can’t get confirmed, but knowing the internet and superhero fandom’s history with this guy, I figure I’d just pass this on and hope it’s right because it’ll illicit a small cheer from Firefly and Castle fans. I think Nathan Fillion cameos as Nova"
El Mayimbe is obviously referring to Richard Rider, a member of the intergalactic police force known as the Nova Corps, for which he gained superhuman abilities including enhanced strength, flight and resistance to injury.
Nathan Fillion was once previously asked about a possible role in Guardians of the Galaxy and he had hinted " To check the post-credits scene maybe"
With DC’s own Justice League movie releasing in 2017, Marvel’s upping the ante. Nova’s obviously inspired by the Green Lantern Corp, so by introducing a fan favorite like Fillion as the lead so much sooner than WB’s rebooted Hal Jordan, Marvel claims influence over the whole ‘outer space superhero cops’ genre. I hope this is true, I think its time Fillion gets a break in a huge franchise, he has the acting chops and charisma to pull such a role.
UPDATE: DIRECTOR JAMES GUNN HAS DENIED SAID RUMOR ON HIS TWITTER PAGE
What do you guys think? Do you think Nathan Fillion will join MCU as Nova ? put in your thoughts below.
