Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn dispelled the notion that he is unfamiliar with the character Nova.
In Marvel comics, Nova is a member of the intergalactic police force known as the Nova Corps and he has crossed paths with the Guardians of the Galaxy before. With many long-time heroes having made their last bow in Avengers: Endgame, Nova is a frequently mentioned name when fans discuss potential newcomers to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In fact, many fans consider the Guardians of the Galaxy films to be the ideal film series for Nova’s debut, but it appears one fan is unsure if James Gunn is knowledgable enough when it comes to the character. On Twitter, one fan asked if there was any truth to a rumor suggesting James Gunn doesn’t know anything about Nova. In response, James Gunn debunked the claim and note that he was likely to read 75% of the Nova comics in existence.

Do you want to see Nova join the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Should Nova debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 or a standalone movie? Let us know in the comments!
Production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was scheduled to begin early this year, but James Gunn’s firing and subsequent re-hiring by Disney caused the project to be delayed. Now, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will move forward after James Gunn completes work on The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. and DC.
Details on the third chapter of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy are currently unknown, though the film will likely explore the ramifications of the universe-changing events in Avengers: Endgame. The film is also set to be the final outing for this current iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sean Gunn.
