Empire has released a new image of Will Poulter as Adam Warlock in Marvel Studios upcoming ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 3’.
Adam Warlock, a cosmic entity, was teased at the end of ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ and is described as “definitely not a good guy” by the film’s director, James Gunn.
It’s kind of more complicated than that but he’s definitely not a good guy. What we’re seeing is the infant form of Warlock, newly out of the cocoon, and he does not understand life very well. He’s basically a baby.James Gunn/Empire
Poulter’s casting came out of left field but Gunn is convinced he is the right actor to portray the next big thing in the MCU.
People online were saying, ‘Oh, Tom Cruise should be Adam Warlock’. I wanted somebody who was youthful, and I wanted the person who had the dramatic chops and the comedic chops, not only for this movie but for what Marvel will use Adam Warlock for in the future. He could become this really important character.James Gunn/Empire
‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 3’ is released on 5th May.
