Marvel Studios Pumps the Brakes on ‘Nova’

The Human Rocket is still headed to the MCU but fans of the character are going to have to wait a bit longer. According to a new report from THR, as part of Bob Iger’s mandate that Disney’s big brands like Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm be more selective with their streaming projects, development on Marvel’s Nova project has been slowed.

The project was first revealed to be in development in March 2022 with Moon Knight writer Sabir Pirzada penning the adaptation. There’ve been conflicting reports about the nature of the project, but given its inclusion in THR’s report, it can be inferred that Nova was not being developed as a theatrical release but rather a streaming series of Special Presentation similar to Werewolf By Night. Marvel Studios’ Head Cheese, Kevin Feige, recently confirmed that the studio’s Disney Plus programming schedule was going to change, and the slowdown in the development of Nova certainly fits into that change.

Given that Nova never had a release date, it’ll be tough to track a delay, but it sounds like fans of the character probably won’t be seeing him on screen until 2024 at the very earliest.
