I agree. I am pretty sure having Rhoman Dey in GotG was groundwork for the Richard Rider Nova origin story.
Add to that Marvel wanted him in GotG to begin with; the director cut him out. Wisely, his reasons were solid --making the movie about Star-Lord was the way to go. But the fact that Nova (presumed Richard Rider) was in early versions of the script really more or less confirms that Marvel would like to see him on screen.
: I'd have to disagree entirely with you
: regarding any Nova flim not using Richard
: Rider mate. Okay the 70's origin story is I
: agree not exactly original. We all get the
: enduring comparisions to a certain Hal
: Jordan; but there's no reason why he can't
: be the star and do a more contemporary
: origin for him, after adapting origins is
: after Ant-Man the new in-thing for the MCU.
: Fact is, with Rhomman Dey, the Xandarian who
: deputised/drafted RR featured in GOTG, the
: potential first step is there; all it takes
: is for Kevin Feige to green light it as he's
: now doing with other obscure properties for
: Phases 3 onwards. I know for sure I would
: not want to see SA front and centre. But I
: have to say with partial begrudgment that
: the current Baikan family origins are pretty
: cool; except for the das't dog!
: So folks, a challenge perhaps as part of
: next year's 40th anniversary for the Man
: Called Nova; what would be your ideal origin
: story for a Nova film? Bucketheads on...
: --Previous Message--
: So I got to thinking the other night.
: clearly likes having a Nova character. We
: have Sam, Jesse and the IG family. If they
: didn't like the character, they wouldn't be
: doing this.
: I think Nova shows up in a movie and
: potentially gets one of his own down the
: line. Sadly, I don't think it will be RR.
: IMO I think Marvel realizes that an origin
: story about a kid from NY who gets selected
: by a dying alien is cliche and has pretty
: much been done before.(this can be null and
: void if they decided to skip his origin)
: Thus, the change. If they plan on a Nova
: movie down the line, and they want it to do
: well, it would be best for them to come up
: with a new back story and character. If my
: hunch is anywhere in the ballpark, I'm cool
: with it. However, you have to up the
: quality of Sam's comic. Otherwise fans of
: the comics will be less inclined to venture
: to the theaters.
