Richard Castle will finally live out his superhero fantasy.

The sequel to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is currently filming in Cartersville, Georgia and it appears that Nathan Fillion will be making an appearance! A number of photos taken by fans reveal that the Castle and Firefly actor will portray Simon Williams (a.k.a Wonder Man).

In the comics, Williams is a former member of the Masters of Evil and the brother of villain Grim Reaper. Williams joins the Avengers, but eventually chooses to leave his superhero lifestyle in pursuit of an acting career. Despite becoming a pacifist and a popular movie star, Williams rejoins the Avengers. Does this mean that Fillion could be a part of Avengers: Infinity War? We certainly hope so!

Photos from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set show Fillion's face on several mock movie posters which range from hilarious to super melodramatic. Apparently, Simon Williams is starring in a rom-com titled Oh, Rebecca (sounds like a hit!) and a Steve Jobs-style biopic about Tony Stark. Click through the photos below.

The shoot confirms that a portion of the highly anticipated sequel will, in fact, take place on Earth. We certainly hope that Fillion's casting means bigger things for the actor in the Marvel universe.
