Director James Gunn has confirmed that Nathan Fillion (star of Firefly and Serenity) will have a role in Guardians of the Galaxy, but won’t be playing Nova Prime, as recent rumours have suggested. Instead, Fillion will have a brief cameo.
“The rumours of my pal @NathanFillion playing Nova in #guardiansofthegalaxy have been greatly (and entirely) exaggerated. Sorry, humans,” Gunn tweeted on June 21st.
Later, the director added that Fillion would be appearing in the film, but that he only has “a very small fun cameo he did as a favor to me.”
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed and written by Gunn, and stars Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, Lee Pace and Karen Gillan, among many others. The film hits UK cinemas on July 31st 2014.
