NOVA Clue Dropped In Marvel Comics Premier Hardcover Restructure?
Sometimes there's an unintentional kernel of knowledge that can be gleaned from a seemingly minor tidbit of information. Case in point, a shift in Marvel's Premier Hardcover strategy could offer a clue to Guardians of the Galaxy and Phase II of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Chalk this up as a RUMOR at the moment but it does appear to be a tell-tale sign that Nova will be appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The news come by way of Diamond Distributor who interviewed Marvel Senior Vice-President of Sales David Gabriel on their downsizing of the Premier Hardcover line. Downsizing to what you say? Downsizing to only titles that figure prominently into the Marvel Cinematic Universe Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova, Uncanny Avengers, and Indestructible Hulk (with a couple of sensible exceptions like All New X-Men and Daredevil). What stands out on that list? Its Nova of course!
Basically Marvel is downsizing the line to only focus on characters that are receiving the movie treatment aside from popular characters like X-Men. Odds are that unless you're in the know when it comes to Marvel cosmic lore, you probably only the vaguest idea concerning Nova and the Nova Corps. He's a character that you wouldn't include alongside Iron Man, Captain America and Thor in a downsizing effort unless he's about to receive the cinematic treatment himself. He would be right at home in the Guardians of the Galaxy (Gotg) film. This seems plausible and more concrete than some of the more wackier rumors based on a 'mystery source' that have been making the rounds lately. Sound off below with your thoughts and opinions as per the norm.
On another Gotg roster note, there was this tweet from director James Gunn a few days back that definitely teases a certain K-9 cosmonaut.
