Minor spoilers for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will follow here. You have been warned.
Nathan Fillion (Saving Private Ryan, Firefly) will be portraying Simon Williams/Wonder Man in next year’s GOTG Vol. 2.
Simon Williams got his powers, which include superhuman strength, stamina and durability, flight, as well as the ability to survive without food, air or water, from radiation and chemical therapy by Baron Zemo. He is an on-and-off member of the Avengers, having left them to become an actor but eventually rejoining.
The set video that shows Fillion seems to confirm that part of the film will take place on Earth.
However, it seems likely that Wonder Man will not have a major role, so don’t expect him to fight very many bad guys – he might be introduced to play a bigger role in a future movie. Are you looking forward to seeing Wonder Man on the big screen? Let us know on Twitter and Instagram!
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to release April 25, 2017.
