According to Cinema Blend on Wednesday, actor "Firefly's" Nathan Fillion could be voicing the Russian cosmonaut dog Cosmo in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy." There had been rumors and speculation flying about Fillion being in the movie as some kind of Nova Corp character, but in actuality Gunn had refuted such speculation in one of his own Twitter tweets.
Sources have indicated that Fillion will be taking on a short role as the voice of Cosmo. In an interview with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Gunn, and Chris Pratt on "AMC Movie Talk", Editor-and-Chief John Campea mentioned he wasn't really all that familiar with the characters from the comic book. He then decided to familiarize himself with the characters and out of all of them, Campea's favorite was Cosmo.
That being said, Campea decided to incorporate his favorite character into his line of questioning with Feige in his decision to possibly even bringing forth Cosmo into the movie. Some may have thought it would be too crowded to bring both Rocket and Cosmo, but Feige mentioned that they had wanted to focus more on Rocket Racoon.
When the subject was brought forth about Cosmo, Feige gave his answer.
"Fans of Cosmo will have to wait and see the movie."
Afterwards, Feige gave a rather apparent poker face, followed by the rest of his crew. An awkward silence was rather apparent and shortly thereafter, smiles and laughter followed. That response could be left up to interpretation, but as he implied, fans will just have to be patient.
A couple of months back, Fillion was participating in a "Firefly" panel at the St. Louis Comic Con. A major question and answer session was commencing, when one fan notably asked Fillion if he was wanting to take on a role in Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" film. Fillion's response did give the audience quite the tease:
“Wanting to get a part… or maybe did. I’m just saying maybe. Maybe you’ll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits.”
"Guardians of the Galaxy" opens in theaters come Aug. 1.
