Possible live action Nova film...?

Marvel Studios owns the rights to Nova, if I'm not mistaken. I know they said eventually down the road they would like to go a Cosmic Marvel route, and Silver Surfer/Galactus is necessary to do so. But maybe after the SS movie, could a Nova movie be next? Would it have a dark tone or a lighthearted one? Share your thoughts.

And who do you think should play Richard Rider? And who should voice Worldmind?

I think they might be hesitant considering how Green Lantern has underperformed for DC. Though if they set it on and around Earth it might be better. I'd watch it. I think an unknown late teen early 20 year old actor would work best.

Fox has the rights to Silver Surfer and Galactus because of the FF movie. :(

I think Nova would do better than a GL movie. No goofy constructs. I'd go see it.

I know they do, but we all know that Marvel/Disney want those rights back bad, so it's only a matter of time. :) 
 
I think it would be MUCH better than GL.  Marvel hires good writers/directors, I'm going to say JJ Abrams should do Nova, with Chris Pine.

With a good producer and a writter  who as some knowledge on nova, it could easily be a movie with great potential!

I am not sure who would be perfect to play Nova, but there is no need to do a Silver Surfer movie to work into a Nova movie and he doesn't need to be around Earth. Being around Earth really isn't Nova, at least not anymore, I think it would actually help the movie to be set on a different planet or almost entirely in space.

After Green Lantern I prefer NOT to see this movie.
