"Guardians" director James Gunn delivered the news to his Twitter followers over the weekend, answering a fan query about the likelihood of Fillion appearing in the upcoming Marvel flick. Slither" and "Super." Fillion made coy reference to the possibility of a "Guardians" cameo back in April, when he not-so-subtly told an inquiring fan, "Maybe you'll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits."
We're excited to see Fillion return to his space roots (RIP, "Firefly"), and eager to see how he jells with the rest of the "Guardians" cast. EW has a rundown of possible parts the actor could play; we're thinking he'll probably pop up somewhere unexpected in the background.
Be on the lookout for Fillion when "Guardians of the Galaxy" -- which also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Dave Batista, and Karen Gillan -- hits theaters on August 1.
