Nathan Fillion Teases Superman’s Take on Guy Gardner


Apple’s Neuromancer adaptation finds itself a new hacker. Al Pacino and Dan Stevens are teaming up for a new exorcist horror. Plus, more casting news from Wednesday season 2, what’s coming on Chucky season 2, and a new clip from X-Men ‘97. Spoilers get!

Mission: Impossible 8

THR reports Tramell Tillman (Severance) is the latest to join the cast of Mission: Impossible 8 in a currently undisclosed role.

The Ritual

Variety also reports Al Pacino and Dan Stevens are attached to star in The Ritual, a horror film concerning exorcism at XYZ Films. Directed by David Midell, the allegedly true story concerns “two priests — one questioning his faith (Stevens) and one reckoning with a troubled past (Pacino) — who must put aside their differences to save a possessed young woman through a difficult and dangerous series of exorcisms. The film is an authentic portrayal of Emma Schmidt, an American woman whose demonic possession culminated in harrowing exorcisms. Her case remains the most thoroughly documented exorcism in American history.”


During a recent interview with Collider, Nathan Fillion described his take on Superman’s Guy Gardner as a man who’s “90% flawed” but “doesn’t care.”

The reality is that people have flaws. We all have quirks. We all have vulnerabilities. You could have the most wonderful family, but be like, ‘Oh, my God, my dad drives me nuts. He’s got this one thing.’ Everybody’s got something, and I love to lean into those faults and flaws. It’s what makes people real and what allows audiences to relate, because we all know what that is. We all have our own. We witness it in other people. Guy Gardner is 90% flawed and doesn’t care. That’s one of his flaws. I think there’s a real freedom in playing that. So, for a guy who likes to play flaws and flawed people, Guy Gardner is a gold mine.
