A long overdue hero is finally set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Nova!
The project is being developed with Moon Knight scribe Sabir Pirzada on board to write. It is unknown for now whether this will be developed as a feature film or a limited series for Disney+. As always, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will produce.
Nova first appeared in an 1976 issue of Super Adventures was member of the intergalactic police force known as the Nova Corps, for which he gained superhuman abilities including enhanced strength, flight and resistance to injury. While the character didn’t have many run-ins with some of the main figures of the current or past MCU, he did have some battles with the Skrulls, who have big parts in recent and upcoming Marvel projects including Captain Marvel and the limited series Secret Invasion.
Cinematically speaking, the Nova Corp were pretty much destroyed in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film while defending Xandar against Ronin.
It will be interesting to see how Richard Rider comes to be Nova in the MCU.
