James Gunn Confirms Nova Won\’t Appear in Guardians of the Galaxy



No Richard Rider Nova in Guardians of the Galaxy

Last week the Internet was erupting in fanboy happiness based on rumors that Nathan Fillion would be showing up in Guardians of the Galaxy as a pretty popular Marvel Cosmic character.

It all began when Latino Review began a bogus rumor that Nathan Fillion would cameo in the movie as Richard Rider, a.k.a Nova. James Gunn came out on Twitter and quickly debunked that, but in the age of rumors going viral and becoming “truth” many people didn’t believe him.

Speaking to Nerdist, James Gunn confirmed that Nova won’t be showing up in the movie:

“You won’t see the Nova character in the film,” added Gunn. “You’ll see the Nova Corps.”

He goes on to also confirm that Fillion isn’t playing Cosmo, the talking space dog in charge of security on Knowhere.
