When Will Nova Join The MCU? Chances For Him To Appear In Upcoming Marvel Movies & Shows


Fans are anticipated to see Nova in Marvel movies. This superhero is quite popular and a staple of Marvel comics. Marvel is expanding and introducing new characters in Phase 4, so is there a chance for Nova, a.k.a Richard Rider to feature in any of the upcoming films or series?

And guess what? He is the best fit for Marvel films and series because, in Phase 4, MCU might reveal more about the cosmic stories. Fans loved Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor so they will love his films too. Let us go through the movies and series where Marvel can introduce Nova.

  1. Guardians Of The Galaxy 3

The third volume of Guardians Of The Galaxy could be the right place to introduce Nova. In the past, James Gunn did not include him because he wanted only Peter Quill to be a human in the crew. It is the right time for him because, after Endgame, the crew, along with Thor goes on their next possible mission.

  1. Thor: Love And Thunder

The creators could drop his character in Thor: Love and Thunder. The film will possibly be cosmic, so it is the right time for him to encounter Thor and Jane Foster. 

  1. Nick Fury Show

Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) series is one of the recently announced projects. The series will debut on Disney Plus. There are two big chances for Nova to feature in this series.

Fury will form SWORD, which is a space focused series, so he might run across Nova during their adventures and include him in his team. Nothing can hide from Nick Fury’s radar, so there are chances for him to find a human named Richard Rider who has left his planet after gaining superpowers. 

  1. Captain Marvel 2

If there is a Secret Invasion, then Nova might play a prominent part in Captain Marvel 2. In the comics, Rider was fighting along with the Skrulls, who have worked with Captain Marvel. Marvel can introduce him as the next big superhero who would join hands with Carol Danvers and save Earth and the cosmos from villains.

  1. Ms. Marvel

You might be thinking that Nova appearing in Ms. Marvel will be strange. However, we are unsure if Marvel will introduce him to the upcoming Disney Plus series. In the comics, Sam Alexander’s version of Nova appears with Kamala Khan. So a small cameo in the series can help Nova to become a part of the Marvel films and series. 

  1. Spider-Man: Homecoming 3/4

Sam Alexander’s Nova might appear in the third or fourth part of Spider-Man: Homecoming. After Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, Marvel could introduce new young superheroes, and Nova is the right candidate.

The animated series Ultimate Spider-Man showcased Sam’s Nova with Miles Morales version of Spider-Man. But Peter Parker and Sam’s duo sounds fun too. 


Marvel knows how to introduce a character in a film or series. He might even get his solo movie in the future and then appear in films and series. Well, it is just our wild guess. After the Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, fans are waiting for a big superhero entry, so this can be the best opportunity for them to bring Nova.
