Nathan Fillion is Nova!!! Wait...wait. The director, James Gunn, just tweeted. He’s not. Wait! Wait! He’s in a cameo! WE’LL TAKE IT!
This has been the emotional roller coaster that we geeks have been going through in the last 48 hours. Finally, it had seemed that our darling Firefly/Serenity/Castle star had finally joined the Marvel family, and then...it was all taken from us. And now, there’s a glimmer of hope.
Nate may not be Richard Rider, but he will be SOMEONE, and you’re not going to give him a meaningless role. Heck, even Gary Shandling’s tiny role as Senator Stern has become memorable and spawned an internet sensation (see Captain America: Winter Soldier AND like, the internet).
