With Avengers: Endgame closing the arc for some of its characters, the next phase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to feel a lot different. Marvel Studios is currently working on bringing Shang-Chi and The Eternals to the big screen along with movies for Black Widow and the next Guardians of the Galaxy. Feige also mentioned that Captain Marvel will be leading the next phase of the MCU. There is one Marvel character that many fans have been hankering for, and that is Nova. Now it looks like we might get one soon if the report is true.

With Guardians of the Galaxy featuring Xandar and Nova Corps, fans were wondering if they would ever see Nova play a prominent role in the films. Well, it looks like he’ll be getting his own film, according to a source from MCU Cosmic. The site says that the same source was correct about 13 Reasons Why’s Katherine Langford having a part in Avengers: Endgame. (Her role was ultimately cut due to audience’s reactions.)

 

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has mentioned that Nova was a character the studio was interested in.

“[We] have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board,” Feige told ComicBook.com last year. “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].”

If Nova is indeed in the works, will we be getting Richard Rider or Sam Alexander? Marvel Studios has been jumping to later versions of certain characters like Scott Lang as Ant-Man and Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel.

Xandar was destroyed by Thanos and mentioned by the Mad Titan in passing in Avengers: Infinity War. Will Nova’s origin story be completely different? Do audiences want to see another origin story where an Earthling gets powers from an alien? Let us know what you’d like to see in a Nova movie.
