Will Nathan Fillion Play Star-Lord? With Joss Whedon Directing Guardians of the Galaxy Movie?!
Nathan Fillion has been the long time choice among fans to play Ant-Man.
And with a possible Ant-Man movie on the horizon, we get word from the actor currently starring in ABC's Castle about playing the tiny role.
At the recent HeroComplex Film Festival a screening of Serenity was held, which was directed by The Avengers helmer Joss Whedon, and Fillion was asked about playing Ant-Man (Via FirstShowing).
Someone asked if he wants to play Ant-Man in Edgar Wright's upcoming Marvel film, and he shrugged and said, "did you ever just love Ant-Man? Not me."
Now I Can't say I disagree with Fillion's feelings about Ant-Man, but Fillion also stated he's not interested in anything with a Wonder Woman movie, but would be with a film adaptation of the popular Uncharted video game.
However, in keeping with Marvel Studios, Nathan Fillion would be the obvious choice to play Star-Lord, Peter Quill, in the Guardians of the Galaxy Movie as Star-Lord is Marvel's Han Solo — a similar character Fillion played in Whedon's Firefly (which Serenity spun off).
Going one step further, Joss Whedon said he is unsure if he wants to direct The Avengers sequel; however, seeing how Whedon included Thanos in the post-credit scene, which the Mad Titan is said to be next seen in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie — how about a Joss Whedon directed Guardians of the Galaxy movie? In addition, Whedon said he is a big fan of the Marvel Cosmic stories with Thanos and Adam Warlock.
While just speculation on my part, having the director of the most popular movie off all time on a relative unknown like Guardians of the Galaxy might help just a tad bit. Don't you think? Of course re-united with Fillion isn't too bad, either. Adam Baldwin as Drax, anyone?
