James Gunn teases Adam Warlock’s next MCU appearance

Fans have been clamouring for Adam Warlock since the first Guardians of the Galaxy film in the series was released. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until Vol. 2 that Marvel Studios lay the stage for his appearance.

James Gunn discussed Will Poulter’s Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and how his character may become extremely important for the MCU in the future in a recent interview.

In a new interview with Empire Magazine Gunn revealed that,”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.”

When it came to casting, the filmmaker went with Poulter because he needed someone dramatic and funny.

He said, “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.”

Gunn concluded by teasing how Warlock may become a massive character in the MCU.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be released in cinemas on May 5.
