'Nathan Fillion Civilian Pavilion' petition in Edmonton gets boost from John Cena, Margot Robbie
A petition to build the Nathan Fillion Civilian Pavilion in Edmonton has the support of some of Hollywood's biggest stars.
Margot Robbie and John Cena, as part of the release of The Suicide Squad on Aug. 6, backed the petition honouring Edmonton-born Fillion, who plays T.D.K.
"I 100 per cent support this," Margot Robbie said on a Warner Bros video. "I really, really hope you succeed in this mission, Edmonton."
"I'm intrigued, I'm excited and I'm eager to watch how this story plays out," John Cena added.
Fillion responded on Twitter: "Will we be painting it Vermilion?"
An Alberta town of about 4,000 about two hours east of Edmonton shares a name with the scarlet hue.
The City of Edmonton tweeted Wednesday that the name "has a great ring to it" and told people to "stay tuned."
The petition, created by Sonic's Lauren Hunter, had reached 17,000 signatures as of Wednesday morning.
