In just five days, I have visited Disney World’s new Pandora: The World of Avatar, experienced Universal Orlando’s third theme park Volcano Bay, and the grand opening of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure. I’ll have more on Volcano Bay and AvatarLand next week, but today, I wanted to give you my quick reaction to Mission Breakout. How does Marvel’s first step into North American Disney Parks compare to the former and beloved attraction it replaced, The Twilight Zones Tower of Terror?

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.
