As the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe moves into the later stages, now that we’ve seen multiple films and series released, attention is now starting to shift to the next wave of projects. According to Geeks Worldwide, a new movie is now reported to be going into production in 2023 featuring the superhero Nova.
Nova, aka Richard Rider, is a member of the Nova Corps until the Annihilation Wave destroyed them all, leaving him imbued with their combined power and guided by the super-intelligent Worldmind computer, Richard Rider wages a one-man battle for justice as Nova.
We’ve already seen the Nova Corps in action as part of “Guardians Of The Galaxy”, so it wouldn’t be a huge shock to see Nova brought onto our screens eventually. The character was introduced into the comic books in 1966 and has already appeared in many animated series and video games. Nova has previously been planned to be part of both “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and “Avengers: Infinity War”, but was cut.
Earlier this year, during an appearance on the Phase Zero, podcast, Marvel President Kevin Feige spoke about the addition of Nova to the MCU:
“Timing is relative, right? I think I’d been talking about Doctor Strange eight years before that movie came out. So, ‘immediate potential’ is relative. But clearly, we are not shying away from the cosmic end of storytelling right in the sweet spot of the Nova Corps and Nova himself.”
This isn’t the first time a project featuring Nova has been rumoured, as earlier this year, a film or Disney+ series was reported to be in development.
Marvel hasn’t officially announced a Nova film, or a Disney+ series, is currently in development, so this should still be treated as a rumour.
But would you like to see “Nova” on our screens?
