After a few odd years, James Gunn will finally show the world his long-awaited Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The film, which will feature the return of the surviving core members of the titular team will also introduce Will Poulter as Adam Warlock.
Adam Warlock was first teased in one of the mid-credits scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Elizabeth Debicki’s Ayesha, leader of the Sovereign people had created him as someone who could defeat the Guardians, and a cocoon was shown. Now, fans will have the opportunity to see how Will Poulter brings the character to life.
Here, we get to see how Instagram artist @clements.ink depicts Will Poulter as Adam Warlock, giving fans an idea of how the actor could look like in the highly-anticipated film:
James Gunn has stated that the final chapter of the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy will not just be a different, more emotional film, but will also be the grandest adventure the team has embarked on to date. Part of that will certainly involve Adam Warlock, whom James Gunn described as a character that only Will Poulter could play.
The Guardians of the Galaxy recently appeared in Thor: Love and Thunder. Here is the synopsis:
The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
Directed by Taika Waititi and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, the Thor solo film stars Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Jaimie Alexander, Taika Waititi, Russell Crowe, Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder is now playing in theaters. Meanwhile, James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will hit theaters on May 5, 2023.
