Nathan Fillion on Avengers 2: 'I'm not quite at that level yet'. He tells Digital Spy "The entertainment industry is an industry. I love telling stories but finance does meet art. If I were in charge of an Avengers sequel I would be very concerned about what kind of money I could make back overseas, and these kinds of things."

As much as I'd love to see him in a marvel movie, I kinda love his take on reality as well. He's had a pretty fair share of awesome projects to participate in - and I look forward to more of that, it's nice to hear that he's a realistic (bad ass) guy.
His humility is nice, but I hope he doesn't really believe what he is saying. Time and again, he has demonstrated the acting chops and screen presence needed to carry a major role. I think he just needs to be given the chance. Not as Ant Man though, Garrett Morris owns that character.
I just watched that old SNL skit recently. Hilarious - and you're right, Garrett Morris IS Ant Man. Nathan will have to play some other character.
You just have to remember "acting chops" are not what he's talking about. He's talking about the ability of his presence to draw a viewers more than another guy. If it's a Joss flick, much of his fanbase is going to be there anyway.

So if you're a studio, do you get Fillion or do you try to find a younger "not quite there yet star" or someone like Channing Tatum (I'm not saying yes to this, it's just an example) who potentially brings out a desired demographic that you don't necessarily have covered with your existing cast.
