Nova Corps Confirmed For Guardians of the Galaxy Movie



Earlier, the first footage was revealed at Comic-Con for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

It featured John O'Reilly, who is rumored to be playing Rhoman Dey, a member of the Nova Corps in the comics.

Following the panel Marvel Studios released official concept art of the Guardians of the Galaxy which included Drax, Gamora, Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon and Groot.

What the image actually looks like is almost like a police line-up, as in the Comic-Con footage they were all being processed as prisoners by O'Reilly.

Well, take a closer look at the art: Blurred out is "Nova Corps ..."

It looks like "Nova Corps System [numbers]."

The first concept art also showed what looked like the Nova Corps insigna in the background as stars, which could be Nova Corps members jumping out of hyperspace.

In additon, Glenn Close is also rumored to be playing a high ranking Nova Corps officer.

Here's the new art with a close up of "Nova Corps."
