Kevin Feige Says NOVA Has "Immediate Potential" At Marvel Studios And Addresses What Comes Next

Nova was supposed to make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy but that didn't happen. Since then, fans have been wondering when we'll see him in the MCU and Kevin Feige has now elaborated on that.

There are now only a handful of characters we're waiting for Marvel Studios to bring to the big screen but one name which pops up, again and again, is, of course, Nova. The cosmic superhero could easily hold his own in a solo movie or the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise but seeing as James Gunn doesn't appear to be a fan of the character, that latter option doesn't seem at all likely for Vol. 3

When Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was recently asked about the chances of Nova coming to the big screen, he confirmed that's a character they're well aware has "immediate potential."


"[If] we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board," he said much to the delight of fans. "Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting. And you’re absolutely right, he was in the earliest drafts of the [Guardians of the Galaxy]."
 
Feige wouldn't elaborate on what's happening with the character beyond that but did say that Marvel is waiting for Avengers: Infinity War to be released before settling on what comes next. "We're figuring those things out. It is a very unique embarrassment of riches right now because there are so many of the characters that audiences are clamoring to see more. The question is how do we show them all?"

Do you think there's a chance Nova could show up in Avengers 4 or is Marvel probably holding off on introducing him further down the line? As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts below.
