The Marvel Cinematic Universe is entering phase 3 and that includes Guardians of the Galaxy 2! According to reports the sequel just got a lot more bitchin’ as the cast has added science fiction veteran and hunky hero Nathan Fillion!
According to some on-set photos (not official photos mind you) it appears that Fillion is playing a character familiar to Marvel Comics fans, Simon Williams. The character is a long running character in the comic books and is an actor who has energy-based powers that give him super-strength, flight, and superhuman endurance.
In the photos we see a scene revolving what appears to be a “Simon Williams Film Festival” which takes place on Earth rather than out in the galaxy somewhere. It is also important to note that Williams once appeared as an Avenger in the comics, operating under the code name Wonder Man, so it may be possible that something could come up about it at some point. We won’t know for a while unfortunately.
