The sequel could cover more of his life on Earth before becoming a full-time Nova Corps Centurion.
: Origin films are typically weak (IM and
: Avengers being the exception). They know
: this so that's why they're not doing an
: origin story for Dr. Strange or re-booted
: Spiderman. They're already going to have
: their powers when the film starts.
: The Nova origin story will get criticism for
: being derivative of GL. So - it shouldn't
: even go there.
: Just start with the Annihilation Prologue.
: Have Rich arrive on Xandar and go right into
: the Annihilation War. Don't explain his
: origin. He's already a soldier. Origin can
: be explained in the sequel or brief
: flashbacks like in Gunn's GotG or not at all
: - it doesn't matter. The title should be:
: Nova: The Annihilation War
: Nova: Annihilation
: If it starts off with a bang - that'll be
: the way it catches on.
: Sadly though, it's much more likely that
: we'll get a Politically Correct Disney-fied
: "Nova" film based on (banned
: acronym) or PC-(banned acronym)-ette.

: The first film would have to be Nova:The
: Rocket - with emphasis on Nova being the key
: word. After that - sub titles rather than
: numbers are the norm these days. As for the
: plot for the first film - Rich's 70's origin
: would have to be updated for the modern
: contemporary audiences - in some ways they
: could consider handling it like Peter
: Quill's in GOTG; have it that Rich's id as
: Nova is already well established right from
: the off - then dipping into flashback mode
: when he was drafted. I'd also probably opt
: to combine the origin tale with a take on
: Annihilation - or at least a build up to
: that event if dovetailed into a second
: feature if the first was successful. All
: that remains is if MS actally do it. So
: start lobbying!

: Hey all, I am just trying to be more

: that would feature Rich as the title Terran

: Should a Nova film be numbered or have a

: i.e. sequels would be titled "Nova
: 2", "Nova 3", etc. like how
: the Iron Man films are numbered.
: Maybe, as with the Thor films, the first
: would simply be "Nova" and the
: following sequels would have an attached
: title. i.e. "Nova: The Annihilation
: Wave", "Nova- Annihilation:
: Conquest", etc.
: Or, perhaps follow the Captain America films
: by having an attached title to each film?
: i.e. "Nova: The Human Rocket",
: "Nova: The Annihilation War", etc.
: Me personally, this is the format I would go
