Nova Corps Update: A new Marvel Studios character will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) was the first film to mention Nova Corps; however, Richard Rider, also known as Nova, is expected to take on his own role soon.
Given that Moon Knight screenwriter Sabir Pirzada has been hired to produce the film, it is not clear if Richard Rider will be featured in a feature-length film or a series that will air on Disney+.
Richard Rider was first mentioned in a 1966 issue of Super Adventures. He was chosen to join the interplanetary police group Nova Corps as a civilian and was given superhuman abilities.
Captain Marvel and the Disney+ serial Secret Invasion confront extraterrestrial shapeshifters called Skrulls, who were revealed in the 2019 film Captain Marvel and the Disney+ serial Secret Invasion, with abilities like flying, damage resistance, and enhanced brute force.
Let's talk about what we know so far about the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Nova Corps Series. So please read the whole thing till the end.
Nova is a member of the Marvel Universes' Green Lantern Corps, which is the equivalent of the powerful Nova Force. Each of these space officers is given access to the powerful Nova Force and assigned the task of defending the galaxy from a variety of dangers.
Every member of the Nova Corps has a rank, whether they are low-level Corpsmen, top-tier Centurions, or the all-powerful Nova Prime. The Xandarian Worldmind, a sentient computer containing all the knowledge and experience of centuries worth of Nova Corps troopers, directs each of these fighters.
The two Earth heroes, Richard Rider and Sam Alexander, are the focus of the majority of stories, while both of these heroes took on the task of being Nova Corpsmen when the Marvel Universe was at its darkest.
Even if the project will be a series or a movie, Nova may make a brief appearance in The Marvels.
Given Nova's long history of conflict with the Skrull in comic books, the hero might also take part in other intergalactic plotlines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Before landing the high-profile project, Pirzada was a member of the Moon Knights writers' room. Oscar Isaac plays a shattered hero in the show who battles nighttime villains while dealing with dissociative identity disorder (DID).
Moon Knight promises to include the Egyptian Gods in Marvel Cinematic Universe films, while also giving new perspective to future MCU productions.
All Nova Corpsmen have access to the Nova Force. Because of their energy source, they can fly and have improved strength, speed, and durability.
Nova has the ability to absorb energy and direct it in the form of devastating blasts against his opponents. Additionally, Nova's suit allows him to travel through space while still breathing comfortably.
Novas' rank determines how well they can utilize the resources of the Nova Force. Nova Prime is the most powerful and versatile soldier of all time, far superior to Centurions and Corpsmen.
Richard Rider, one of the most powerful Marvel Universe characters, was previously Nova Prime, and he had the whole Nova Force within his body.
Sam and Richard havent yet made an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that might change soon. Glenn Close plays Nova Prime, John C. Reilly plays Rhomann Dey, and Peter Serafinowicz plays Garthan Saal, the Nova Corps gave their first film premiere in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy.
The Nova Corps was depicted in that film as regular, blue-collar space cops rather than as superhuman superhuman superheroes, and the majority of their power came from their spaceships rather than the Nova Force itself.
From 2018, Avengers: Infinity War makes a reference to the Nova Corps, implying that Thanos destroyed the group and their homeworld of Xandar.
This plot development is thought to lay the foundation for a future Nova film, with Richard Rider or Sam Alexander (or both) being chosen to carry on the Nova Corps heritage.
According to Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige, the Nova Corps was mostly quiet after the Thanos damage. There have not been many indications in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that the Corps has recovered from the disaster.
