Nova won’t be in Guardians of the Galaxy 2


Nova is a superhero who’s part of the Nova Corps, an intergalactic military/police force. The force was heavily featured in Guardians of the Galaxy. With Guardians of the Galaxy 2 coming out in 2017, fans were hoping to see Nova make an appearance. Sadly, that won’t be the case (via SlashFilm).

It’s revealed that director James Gunn wants to focus solely on one Earth hero, Peter Quill. He answered a question by a Facebook fan with:

“I don’t want Nova right now because I think Quill being the only earthling is important. That serves the entire movie going audience and not just the handful of Nova fans… I have nothing against Nova in future movies, but it doesn’t serve the movie right this moment.”

If we don’t see Nova appear in any of the Phase 3 films, perhaps he’ll get his own solo film for Phase 4.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
