MCU Cosmic is reporting that Richard Rider aka Nova is on the way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he may be showing up sooner than many expected.
Back in May, MCU Cosmic reported that development on Nova had begun at Marvel Studios. That followed comments by Kevin Feige a year earlier when he told ComicBook.com that Nova was a character with “immediate potential”.
In May it was hard to tell how far the development was on the project, but now there is a better idea. The site reports that Nova appears to be one of the big characters planned for a Phase 5 debut alongside Blade, The Fantastic Four, and the X-Men Mutants. And from the sound of things, and how it’s been in development for a while, it could be relatively early in Phase 5.
