[RUMOR] Is Nova to Appear in Guardians of the Galaxy?

hollywood-movie-newsHere’s an interesting and hopefully true rumor for Guardians of the Galaxy. According to Latino Review, Richard Ryder, who is also known as Nova of the Nova Corps, will have an appearance in the upcoming Marvel movie. And according to them (though unconfirmed), Ryder will be played by Nathan Fillion!

I do hope this rumor turns out to be true. As I would love to see Nova in the movie, especially played by Fillion, whom has voiced characters in DC’s animated films, but has yet to appear in a live-action film for either DC or Marvel.

Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Djimon Hounsou, Benecio Del Toro, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and Gregg Henry, it is set to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014. (Source: Latino Review)

UPDATE: Director James Gunn commented on Twitter that Nathan Fillion is NOT Nova, but is in the movie. Also of note, he doesn’t deny that Nova is in the movie either.
