So, in distinction to earlier team-up motion pictures, like Spider-Man and Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War, it didn’t have room to introduce any main new heroes into the cinematic universe. This wasn’t at all times the case, although, as a beloved comedian e-book character did function in early drafts.
Chances are you’ll know that none apart from Nova was initially set to look in Infinity War, one thing that screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have revealed earlier than.

The Xandar sequence Markus is referring to was the unique opening of Infinity War – Thanos’ assault on Xandar in an effort to declare the Energy Stone. In the movie itself, that is solely alluded to, however preliminary drafts depicted the Mad Titan’s forces destroying the Nova Corps, establishing Earthling Rider changing into the one bearer of the Nova Pressure, as per the comics. But like Markus says, it ended up getting reduce for time.
The set-up for Rider’s debut remains to be there within the film, although, so a Nova movie appears inevitable. It’s identified that Marvel is engaged on getting him into the MCU someplace, with a solo car in some stage of improvement. It doesn’t seem like a prime precedence for the studio in the mean time, although, and it appears extra seemingly that they’ll attempt to sneak him into one other film first to check the waters. In one other timeline, nonetheless, he’d have already got debuted in Avengers: Infinity War.
