Guardians of the Galaxy 3: Will Poulter Comments on Adam Warlock Casting – Collider

The classic Marvel character is finally coming to the MCU.
Will Poulter has commented on his recent Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 casting as Adam Warlock by saying he feels “very lucky” for the opportunity to play one of Marvel’s most iconic characters. During a red carpet interview with Flip Your Wig, Poulter said he’s working on getting ready to become Adam Warlock in the final chapter of James Gunn’s Guardians trilogy.
Asked about the recent reveal he would be joining the MCU as Adam Warlock, Poulter said he feels “lucky” and “honored” in being welcomed “into the Marvel family, particularly into a franchise like Guardians of the Galaxy, which I regard to be incredibly creative and very, very unique.” Poulter also praised writer and director Gunn by saying he’s someone the actor “really, really admire.”
Adam Warlock is depicted in comic books as a powerful cosmic being that usually stands against Thanos, so the inclusion of the hero in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 might mean new powerful threats are coming to the MCU. The character was mentioned by name in one of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 post-credits scenes, when Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki), the leader of the Sovereign, said she’s building a being that would be the next step in evolution.
