Looks like we don’t have to wait too much longer to see Adam Warlock in the MCU. After plenty of rumors, true and false about different actors, Deadline has the scoop on Will Poulter (The Revenant, We’re The Millers, Midsommar) is Disney and Marvel’s choice for the role. James Gunn and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy return for the upcoming third film. Production is expected to begin starting in November.
We first got a tease of the character in the post-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 when his cocoon/pod was shown. According to Deadline’s sources, they began in August searching for who would play Warlock. They were blown away by Poulter’s screen test, and the deal went from there.
As for plot details, there aren’t really any at this moment. Marvel and Disney are notoriously strict with their plots and especially for a James Gunn feature like this. It went even further when Gunn confirmed the news on Twitter; something he very rarely does.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has a release date of May 5th, 2023. So, what do you think of Will Poulter’s casting as Adam Warlock?
