With the imminent release of "Guardians of the Galaxy," the cosmic aspect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get much, much bigger. And since the newly-expanded universe will need some law enforcement, the time is perfect for the world to learn about the Nova Corps. The space-faring future cops have been confirmed to be a part of the "Guardians" film, so it's only a matter of time before the Corps starts recruiting on Earth. Whether the film should center on Richard Ryder or Sam Alexander as the titular character is open for debate, but bringing either of them to the silver screen would expand the cosmic side of Marvel films and allow the studio to introduce a second human character alongside GotG's Peter Quill as a relatable point of view character in non-Earthbound films. Marvel has been showcasing the character in their comic and animated worlds for a few years now, so literally millions of fans are already somewhat familiar with the concept of Nova and the Corps. Just because "Green Lantern" was a critical and box office failure, there's no reason why Marvel can't get milage out of the concept of a Corps of super-powered space cops.
