The Nova Corps in the MCU more or less look like what you'd expect movie versions of the Nova Corps to look like. Not quite as bold as the comic books counterparts, but certainly drawing from the same well. You know, like just about every on-screen superhero costume.
Well, they could have ended up looking totally different. Marvel Studios concept artist Andy Park shared this drawing of one of the early iterations of the costume. It's very blue and sliver, instead of the classic gold and blue. Also, it's more space marine than space cop I'd wager. v
Take a look:
This was an early design I concept illustrated for the Nova Corp in the 1st #GuardiansoftheGalaxy movie. It was an amazing time trying to come up with the look & feel of this totally new franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Up until this point it was all Avengers related films. This was our chance to do something different. We saw it as Marvel's Star Wars while working on it :) #gotg #nova #conceptart #design #costume #marvel #marvelstudios #film #illustration #instagood #instaart
I do really like this, but I also like the more down to earth, cop-y versions that we eventually got too.
