Deadline is reporting that Marvel is developing a Nova project with Sabir Pirzada (Moon Knight) on board to write. Currently, it’s unclear whether this will be a feature film or series for Disney+.
In case you aren’t familiar 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. His many powers include flight, superhuman strength, speed, and durability. He has also been a member of many superhero teams such as the Guardians of the Galaxy, throughout his comic book history, which began back in 1966.
Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige will produce.
It’s been over a year since we first heard rumors of a Nova project in development at Marvel. Last October, a report from GWW, suggested the film will enter production in 2023.
