Nathan Fillion has said that he will not be starring in Marvel's Ant-Man film.

 

The Edgar Wright-directed movie is set for a 2015 release, and many comic book fans have tipped Fillion for the title role in the picture.

 

However, in an interview with IGN, the 42-year-old Firefly actor said: "I will not be playing Ant-Man.

 

"I'm pretty booked-up right now as far as work goes, and there's so much more going on in the entertainment industry than just, 'Oh, you know who would be great in that?' There's a lot more that comes into play."

 

Fillion, who currently plays the title role in Castle, also stated that he feels as though he has been "fortunate" in his career, adding: "I haven't done a job in a long, long time that I would rather people not see."

 

Speaking about the long-running drama series, he added: "I've been part of building something. We have built something in Castle, I have made some good friends. I want to see it through, that is important. To accomplish a successful television programme as an actor - the odds against it are nearly insurmountable.

 

"So to be on a successful television programme, I know all too well what a blessing it is. There is time for other roles, just by the time I get there, I hope they're older roles."

It's a regular paycheck too. Can't blame him for staying with the series.
