Hey, they used Guardians to introduce the Nova Corps to the Marvel Cinematic Universe — so why not let the film franchise serve as a starting point for an eventual Nova spin-off? Nova crossed paths with the Guardians on occasion in the comics, and played a key role in the Thanos Imperative with Star-Lord to trap Thanos. Heck, before the movie made the Guardians critical darlings, Nova was arguably a much bigger galactic franchise for Marvel. Of course, Nova’s alter ego, Richard Rider, is human, and Gunn hasn’t shown much interest in introducing more earthlings. But, if anyone is worth an exception, it’s Nova. We’d love to see him introduced to set up a spin-off to dig deeper into his story.
