Since the Marvel Cinematic Universe began, fans have watched dozens of characters interact and build up a world that viewers have invested in. Through it all, there’s been an anticipation of leading towards something that would change the face of the MCU forever. After a decade of development, fans finally have what they’ve been clamouring for with Avengers: Infinity War. The hype and stakes can’t be overstated, which is why I’m going into full on fanboy mode with this review.
The MCU has established itself as a rich universe with characters that are connected to each other. Each movie is designed to set up the next chapter and raise the stakes. But all the universe building can be overwhelming when it’s done too much. So, a self-contained film like Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 is a refreshing change of pace. Here is my spoiler free review.
With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol: 2 coming out later this year, it’s created a fresh opportunity to open up a whole new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With the opportunity comes the chance to see many obscure characters from the franchise make it on to the big screen. As impressive as the film looks there’s one character that’s missing and should be mentioned for his importance. Richard Rider also known as Nova, is considered the most recognized member of the Nova Corps. He was absent from the first Guardians despite the Nova Corps playing a large role in the plot. As there is a large fan base for Rider it’s my hope that he’ll appear in future installments.
