If Quill is visiting Epcot, why is there a Nova Corp building already there in Epcot?
First off, let's preface all of this saying the story treatment here is very likely going to be a stretch. That's the opposition that most of us has.

I suspect it will be something like the Nova Corps setup shop in Epcot to showcase new technologies or something and they recruited the Guardians to tell the story of the ride (whatever that may be). As a heads up, this isn't that far off from the Wakanda motivation that I and others have suggested for Wonders of Life.

The obvious problem here is that historically the technologies showcased were grounded a bit more than super hero movies.

They could showcase how the Nova Corps have been subtly feeding us "Terrans" technology over time to get us ready to enter into the federation of planets, or whatever they call it... and showcase past tech along with future tech that we'll end up using.. who knows. i might be infringing on multiple IP copyrights to include Star Trek and Men In Black though... lol

That it is.
At one point you seemed hopeful overall for the Epcot changes, but lately you seem...disappointed.

Did they have better choices that they ignored, or is the reality of the GotG getting to you? Because it seems like since the height balloons went up and the project was eventually announced, it would seem like it was always going to be this eyesore.

Things have changed a lot over the last two and a bit years. There was a glimmer of hope, then some proposals that knocked it back to square one and beyond. I could have even just about stomached the original twin attraction for Energy. It wouldn’t have been EPCOT, could have been better than Epcot, but now the jury’s out again. IMHO of course.

I just pray they don’t screw up the spine or the plaza now the hotel seems on life support.

Is the spine destruction still being discussed?

If the hotel is on life support what is with all the land clearing behind the solar farm? I thought that was the part of the hotel or was that just everyone speculating?
