Marvel Studios Is Finally Considering Bringing The Richard Rider Version Of NOVA To The Big Screen

Fans have been wondering for years why Nova hasn't been brought to the big screen but Guardians of the Galaxy helmer James Gunn has now confirmed that we could see the hero as soon as the upcoming Vol. 3.

In the past, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has made it clear that he didn't want to add Richard Rider/Nova to the series of films because the filmmaker wanted to keep the focus on just one human character (Peter Quill/Star-Lord). Well, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe seemingly set to take a cosmic turn in Phase 4, Gunn confirms that there are plans in place for the fan-favourite hero.

During a recent Q&A, a fan asked the filmmaker if there's a chance we'll see the "real" Nova - a.k.a. Richard Rider - on the big screen at some point in the near future and his answer was a positive one. 

"Yes, definitely. Nova comes up occasionally as someone we might use," he said before referencing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the fact the movie is going to introduce a plethora of new cosmic heroes and villains. "We’re going to be setting up new characters. It will be the last movie of this version of Guardians of the Galaxy." We know Adam Warlock will appear there but it now sounds like Nova could be thrown into the mix too. As we've already met the Nova Corps, that does make sense.
