Glenn Close Confirmed As Nova Prime In Guardians of the Galaxy With Updated Plot Synopsis
For those keeping track, Disney has released a slightly updated plot synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy which now mentions that Glenn Close is playing Nova Prime Rael.
A previously released plot synopsis stated that Glenn Close was playing "Commander Rael."
Director James Gunn did mention that "Commander Rael" was incorrect; so it looks as if Disney has corrected themselves.
Here is the updated Guardians of the Galaxy plot synopsis:
ABOUT MARVEL'S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance.
