Guardians of the Galaxy Movie: Further Evidence Of A Nova Appearance?

When the Guardians of the Galaxy movie was announced, Marvel Studios released concept art with something peculiar in the background.

Yeah, the stars in the background resemble the Nova helmet logo.

If you are a fan of the comic books, you know Nova and the Guardians of the Galaxy go hand in hand as they were part of the Marvel Cosmic Annihilation era from Keith Giffen, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.

Marvel also recently rebooted the two together as well.

Now some rather interesting news has surfaced in regards to Marvel Comics reprinting premiere hard covers, in that Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy are a part.

4145 Why is it interesting?

Because it seems as if Marvel Comics is only reprinting the characters that Marvel Studios can use in their movies. Sure, there are a few X-Men thrown in there, but everything is without a doubt Avengers-related, and then Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy are oddly thrown in.

Two books, mind you, that Marvel previously wouldn't let near their Avengers stuff or have anything to do with the big events, albeit for a couple early tie-ins that proved highly successful sales-wise.

Here's the list (via Bleeding Cool), though unconfirmed:

Iron Man
Thor
Captain America
Avengers
All New X-Men
Guardians of the Galaxy
Nova
Uncanny X-Men
Uncanny Avengers
Indestructible Hulk

Of course, the above are the Marvel NOW! listed books as well, so the movie thing could just be coincidence.

Still, we can hope.

The Guardians of the Galaxy movie opens August 1, 2014 directed by James Gunn.
