  • Rex

    Ah. Makeup. So much friendlier than CGI

  • Claude AndPam Parish

    I hope the guy in the silver helmet isn’t Nova.

  • Felix Cohen

    Sorry I think it’s nova

  • Felix Cohen

    The guy in the grey helmet looks a bit like judge dredd

  • Dale Dragon Ensign

    No, but its someone else in the Nova Corps

  • matt

    I love how the Nova Corps have been reduced to Marvel Storm Troopers.

  • Matt

    its a nova corps member, not to get too geeky but the star symbol on his helmet is lower ranking then Rick Rider’s, meaning he’s a grunt.

  • Harlock999

    Ah, so Glenn Close is the female changeling from DS9…

  • joncarpe

    Thats most assuredly not Glenn Close

  • dusk

    Why would anyone in the Nova Corps carry guns?

  • David Fullam

    Impressive. Close truly is an excellent actress to do the role with her regular face.

  • Kevin Christensen

    It most assuredly is; it most assuredly identifies her in the text. Yup. That’s her.

  • joncarpe

    I’m sorry but it’s not… Just because it says something in the text doesn’t make it true…

  • Kevin Christensen

    I’m not going to go to your link. It’s probably snarky. Yes, that is her. You can plainly see that it is her. Look at her eyes and the shape of her head. I know it’s a lot of make-up, maybe that’s tough for you, but it’s her. Good luck, pal.

  • George L

    Unless Glen Close is on stilts, that is not her. Come on. Just look at her. As if.

  • Steven S

    Not Glenn Close. She is not that tall. Your so funny, believing what you read on the Internet. Ha ha ha!

  • James A

    Glenn Close is 5ft 4in tall. So sorry, not her. Unless those guys next to her are 4ft tall.

  • Dave

    You’ll notice the bleeding douche just *thinks* it’s not Close…and hopes their dumb as gamble pays off.

  • Kyle Rayner

    I’m not a fan of the Nova Corps costume. However, it may look better when they are in action.

  • Chris E.

    Whoa, this looks bad, really bad. Going to need a lot of CGI to make this look decent. Looks like a made for TV series.

  • richjohnston

    Bleeding Cool knows it’s not Glenn Close. No *thinks* about it.

  • Felix Cohen

    thanks 4 saying, I’m not an expert on nova, now I know cheers :)

  • Ricardo Baptista

    Go watch the leaked trailer.

  • shaunn

    I think you mean “you’re” not “your.”

  • richjohnston

    Kevin, I’ll bet you a hundred dollars its not Glenn Close. Take my bet?

  • BeastieRunner

    I thought the same thing.

  • Mau

    The only Nova Corps member in the movie is suppose to be Rhomann Dey and he will be played by John C. Reilly, somehow I don’t think that’s him.
