The rumors of my pal @NathanFillion playing Nova in #guardiansofthegalaxy have been greatly (and entirely) exaggerated. Sorry, humans.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) June 21, 2014
Okay, so it was the fault of wishful thinking and an overzealous fanboy community. Then a few hours later James Gunn tweets this:
“@STARS_TyranT: Are the rumours true that he has some part in the film?” @nathanfillion has a very small fun cameo he did as a favor to me.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) June 21, 2014
I know they are in business and keeping the news and releasing it is a part of that medium. However, would a yes or no be so horrible in this day and age? Is his part that big of a deal or is it just a cameo. He could be a guy on the street who walks by Rocket Raccoon for all we know. So he is not playing Nova aka Richard Rider. Anyone want to place bets that he is?
The news, of his casting, hasn’t been officially confirmed yet. As always, we wait for the official news to come from Marvel or Disney.
