Yesterday saw the news that Glenn Close has been named to be playing a leader in the Nova Corps in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Speculation immediately began with mention Glenn Close could be playing the voice of the World Mind or even Queen Adora.

However, the cosmic sleuths at Cosmic Book News may have come up with another possibility as Glenn Close could be playing an alien Nova Prime that was featured in the Annihilation Prologue.

Annihilation was the 2005-6 event that saw Annihilus and his army invade the Marvel Universe from the Negative Zone.

It's a great series, from Editor Andy Schmidt, Keith Giffen, with Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning on the Annihilation: Nova mini, and basically blows any Marvel event from the past few years out of the sky.

Highly recommended.




The Guardians of the Galaxy movie has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord and Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer.
