Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 Gave Nathan Fillion One Of His Bucket List Moments
Nathon Fillion told Screen Rant that the fight between his character Karja and the Guardians in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” fulfilled a long-held career aspiration for him.
During the fight scene, Orgosentries encounter malfunctioning suits and soar through the air. Sci-fi laser weapons are fired, and people are flung every which way, including Karja.
When Karja gets thrown through the air during the fight, he slams into a strange sculpture, giving Fillion the chance to fulfill a dream of flying on screen.
Fillion told Screen Rant, “I've always wanted to fly around on cables. I wanted to fly, and this is my first time flying in a film. [It was] everything I dreamed it would be.”
To achieve the effect, the filmmakers attached Fillion to a complex system of wires and pulleys, which are common tools used in this kind of stunt photography.
