  • [August 2020 - The Hollywood Reporter announces the young adult novel, Nebula and Gamora. This is interesting because in 2018, Key Collector received word that there would be a series on Disney+ based on Nebula and Gamora but there hasn't been any update since that time. The early warning of this series could've been misinterpreted as a series when it was only going to be a novel OR the novel could be an indicator that a series is underway]
