In the months leading up to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we heard rumors of a Nathan Fillion cameo. The Firefly star appeared on posters on the film set, and he joked on Instagram about being cut from a scene where he’s dressed like Conan the Barbarian.
So, what happened to that mysterious cameo?
A post shared by Nathan Fillion (@natefillion) on
As it turns out, the cameo never existed. In a Facebook Live Q&A, writer/director James Gunn explained, “There is no Nathan Fillion cameo, and there never was a Nathan Fillion cameo. There was no scene with Simon Williams, he never did anything else.”
Simon Williams is Marvel’s Wonder Man, a character Fillion “played” in the posters spotted on the Guardians 2 set. Williams is an actor who starred in an in-universe Tony Stark biopic, but Fillion’s role never extended beyond that tiny Easter egg. It’s a pity we never saw more of Fillion onscreen, but did Guardians 2 really need any more cameos? You wouldn’t want to overshadow David Hasselhoff.
