The Firefly star will be appearing in the film as Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man. We won’t necessarily get to see FIllion in action, though. (via io9) has posted a series of set photos featuring fake movie posters at the “Simon Williams Film Festival.” Fillion appears as WIlliams on all of these posters, assuming a variety of different roles. Among the posters is a Tony Stark biopic modeled after Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs.

These posters are likely just Easter eggs and Simon Williams probably won’t have a huge impact on the film’s plot. Regardless, we’re always happy to see Fillion on screen.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
