After being one of the longest rumored characters to get a solo project, Deadline has finally revealed that Richard Rider, better known as the intergalactic hero Nova, will be getting his own project. Marvel Studios is developing the adaptation but there are no details if this will be a Disney+ series or a solo film outing. As per usual, Kevin Feige will take on the producing role while Moon Knight writer Sabir Pirzada is attached to pen the project. The project has been teased for quite some time, and many rumors made the rounds on a potential project being in development. Deadline’s Justin Kroll did highlight that sources seem to indicate this is very likely a limited series heading to Disney+.
While the article highlights Richard Rider as the potential main character, there’s a chance that it’ll focus on Sam Alexander. As the name implies, he is part of the Nova Corp but unlike the others we’ve seen in Guardians of the Galaxy, he has superhuman abilities. A special helmet was passed on to his son after his apparent demise, which gave him the same abilities as his father. With the Young Avengers on the horizon and the apparent destruction of the Nova Corp, they may skip straight to the legacy aspect of the character similar to what Ant-Man did when it focused on the second generation holder of the mantle.
