Simon Williams Movie Poster - Haxan 2

When Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was still in production, spy photographers spotted some interesting details on a small town set. The scene was set on Earth and it featured an event called the Simon Williams Film Festival. On the set, some fake movie posters were spotted featuring Nathan Fillion as the actor Simon Williams, who just so happens to be better known as Wonder Man in Marvel Comics.

Of course, this sparked excitement from Marvel fans that Nathan Fillion was becoming part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wonder Man. But when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 rolled around, Nathan Fillion was nowhere to be seen. Even the scene in question at the Simon Williams Film Festival was cut, and the posters glimpsed on the set were never seen in the movie. Director James Gunn has since explained why this happened, and now he’s revealed all of the Simon Williams movie posters for you to check out below. Read More »

If you saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and also stuck around for all five of the credits scenes, you know that there are plenty of cool cameos to enjoy. However, some fans might have been disappointed that one cameo ending up on the cutting room floor: Nathan Fillion.

Word of the Nathan Fillion cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 first emerged in April of 2016 when some set photos spotted a line-up of faux movie posters featuring the Firefly star credited as actor Simon Williams. Fans lost their mind at this detail, because Simon Williams is also known as Wonder Man in the Marvel Comics universe, and it looked like he might make a cameo during a small town Simon Williams Film Festival. So why didn’t we see Nathan Fillion in the movie, even if it was just in those movie posters? James Gunn has explained everything you need to know. Read More »

In the wise words of Shepherd Book in Firefly, “There’s a special level of hell they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater.” And what about people who text at the theater? Well, they’ll just get sued by their date for $17.

A lawsuit filed by a 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar in Austin, Texas last Thursday claims that he is owed $17.31, the price of the ticket for a 3D showing of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, by his date, a 35-year-old woman who was allegedly texting during the film.

Major spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 lie ahead. Don’t read any further if you haven’t watched the movie!

It was a sorrowful ending that reverberated through the galaxy, and cemented Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as a worthy and emotional follow-up to its predecessor.

And the ending of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 doesn’t — yet — fall into that old Marvel habit of bringing back once-deceased characters and cheapening their sacrifice. But while the loss of a beloved character is hard on the audience, it’s even harder on the director and crew behind the film — so much so that writer/director James Gunn almost didn’t make this the film’s ending. Let’s talk about that ending, and how it came to be.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Empire Strikes Back Poster

Back in 2014, artist Matt Ferguson created a stunning poster for Guardians of the Galaxy inspired by the original poster art for the release of Star Wars in 1977 (it was one of Germain Lussier’s favorite pieces that year). Sadly, it was a privately commissioned piece of art, so fans weren’t able to get ahold of it to add to their own collection. Now you can get frustrated all over again as Matt Ferguson has created a poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 inspired by the classic poster art for The Empire Strikes Back. It might even be more stunning than the first one.
