James Gunn Explains The Reason Why Nova Didn’t Appear in “Guardians of the Galaxy!
Although he s a mainstay in the world of the Guardians of the Galaxy comics, the superhero Nova has never appeared in the MCU films roster. According to director James Gunn, the reason why is fairly simple.
Gunn noted that even though Nova is an iconic hero, he was too big of a character to feature in a movie that was striving for a very different look and feel. This occurred during a recent visit to the Phase Zero podcast. Additionally, Gunn stated that he didn’t want the movie to feature too many people.
Gunn said, “I didn’t want to have two human people from the beginning when I came on board guardians. He’s just too large of a character, and he seemed too. I wanted to have one human so that he could be surrounded by aliens, but as time went on, we came to understand that each of these individuals is the only one of their kind—the only one who is human if you will.
Nova most certainly won’t make an appearance in any of the next Guardians of the Galaxy ventures, but he will eventually make an appearance in the MCU. Fans eager to see the character appear in the MCU won’t have to wait too long, as Marvel Studios revealed that a project bearing the character’s name is presently in production.
Gunn once again wrote and directed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. The actors who reprise their roles as Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Kraglin, Nebula, Mantis, Rocket, and Groot include Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Sean Gunn, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel.
Will Poulter and Chukwudi Iwuji, who are newbies to the MCU and who have both been confirmed to play the High Evolutionary and Adam Warlock, respectively, join them? On November 25, 2022, the space-traveling gang will make their Disney+ Christmas special premiere before returning to the big screen.
