With Marvel Studios cranking out quality pictures at a seemingly rapid pace, both on the big screen and the small one (Daredevil was one of the best things we saw this year, on any medium), one has to wonder when they’re going to get to some of their lesser known characters. They’ve already got films scheduled for characters as varied as Doctor Strange, Ms. Marvel and Black Panther (along with some hefty looking Infinity War films set to be released in 2018 and 2019), but we wanted to highlight some characters we’d like to see make their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe sooner rather than later. We’ve got a nice mix of good guys and bad guys (what’s life without variety?), so amp up your comic excitement and check out these 9 Marvel characters we want to see on screen.
Making his first appearance in Nova #1 (published in 1976), Richard Rider , a.k.a. Nova, is the Marvel equivalent to the Green Lantern. A member of the intergalactic police force known as the Nova Corps (which we saw featured in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy), Nova derives his power from the Nova Force, and it gives him enhanced strength, speed and the ability of flight. While we’re pretty sure Nova will find his way into the section of the Marvel universe established in Guardians of the Galaxy, we also think it’d be pretty cool to see him teaming up with The Avengers (or the New Avengers, whomever is working together at that particular moment) to take on someone monolithic like Thanos. Nova, ranked the 98th best character in comic book lore, has a bit of an attitude and would be well served played by an actor with a bit of a wild streak, someone who could hold his own conversationally with Chris Pratt’s Star Lord (Peter Quill).http://marvel.com/characters/41/nova Source: Marvel.com
