It looks as if Xandar is indeed going to be cannon fodder in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie as the first batch of set photos seem to reveal as much.
Shooting on the Millenium Bridge over the Thames yesterday reveals aliens running as well as some members of the Nova Corps.
Interestingly enough, I don't think it's been suggested that these Nova Corps officers have any powers in the scene.
Perhaps they are the non-super-powered "Star Corps" division of the Nova Corps, which we just discussed in the CBN Marvel Cosmic forums.
Or perhaps this is Xandar previous to the Nova Force?
It also looks like the Nova Corps uniforms revealed at Comic-Con and the costumes for the movie are one in the same.
