James Gunn Talks Chance of A Nova Movie; GOTG 2 Might Be At SDCC

In between shoots, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 director James Gunn took part in another live Facebook Q&A.

Worth a mention is that toward the end of the video, Gunn said a Nova movie could happen.

“I think there is always a chance of a Nova movie,” Gunn said. “I don’t think it’s something I would do. But it’s possible.”

A Richard Rider Nova movie makes perfect sense for the MCU as it was the sister title to the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book that inspired Gunn’s movie, and both were written by the cosmic duo, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. Nova still has a hard core fan base that supports anything Richard Rider — even the Richard Rider Nova Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy movie action figure sold better than all the other Guardians characters, and Nova wasn’t even in movie.


Fans have also been wondering if Marvel Studios will be appearing at this Summer’s San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel Studios skipped out on it last year, but in the video below, Gunn says he would love to come to Comic-Con.

“Am I going to San Diego Comic-Con?! That’s a good question!” Gunn teased. “You guys want me to go to San Diego Comic-Con? You’ll have to see! I would like to go. That would be amazing, wouldn’t it? I would like to come and see you all at San Diego Comic-Con and bring some friends along. That would be awful fun. That would be awful fun. I would really love to do that.”

Gunn also apologized if his recent Captain America comments upset any of the fans. He says his comments were meant to be a joke, but apologized if they came off the wrong way.

Gunn also says no Avengers characters in Guardians of the Galaxy 2; mentioned an emotional scene featuring Drax and Mantis in the movie, and no — we won’t be seeing Drax do a Bautista Power Bomb!
