In a recent interview, Fillion addressed his upcoming role as Guy Gardner in Superman and explained why he is a perfect fit to play this version of the Green Lantern.

"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," he said.

"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."

Fillion added, "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."

Based on his comments, you can tell that Fillion has a strong adoration for his character and it is great to hear that he is embracing every aspect including his flawed personality.

It is certainly a promising tidbit about his take on Guy Gardner. It is also interesting to see how it all plays out opposite Superman, who has a very different personality than him.

Superman is slated for release in theaters on July 11, 2025.
