Marvel Studios Reportedly Developing a ‘Nova’ Project

Last May, rumors surfaced from MCU Cosmic, that Marvel Studios was in early development on a project centered on Nova, and the site later reported that the character would debut in phase 5.

Now, The Illuminerdi has obtained a production grid for the project, with Marvel Studios President and Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige listed as a producer (he’s listed as a producer on all Marvel Studios projects).

Unfortunately, any other details on the project are being kept under wraps, though the fact a production grid has surfaced seems to tell the project is definitely moving forward. It’s also unknown if the project is being developed theatrically or as a series for Disney+.

You can expect fan casts to start circulating the internet. One fan-favorite for the role is ComicBook.com’s own Brandon Davis, who has a great relationship with the team at Marvel and has even petitioned for the role on Twitter. Davis is also an actor appearing in his own short film titled, Stay (we will post the movie below).

For those unfamiliar with the character, Nova, a.k.a Richard Rider became Nova after the last surviving member of Corps, Rhomann Dey, crash-landed on Earth and bestowed his powers and duty upon him. Dey, as fans might recall, is the name of the Nova officer played by John C. Reilly in Guardians of the Galaxy. With Xandar destroyed during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, we may see an injured Dey travel to Earth to find a replacement.
