Marvel fans have been anticipating Adam Warlock’s entrance into the MCU ever since a certain cocoon turned up as an Easter Egg in Thor: The Dark World’s post-credits scene. Later, the extraordinarily potent cosmic being received a more official set-up for his imminent big-screen debut in James Gunn’s much anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 prequel. As stated in Volume 2, the gold-hued Sovereign leader Ayesha created him (in a new cocoon; the old one is no longer canon) to overthrow our favorite cosmic scumbags, the Guardians, for betraying her.
So be ready for an upcoming comic book favorite whose sole purpose in life is to defeat our heroes. Or maybe not, as Gunn suggests. “It’s kind of more complicated than that,” he tells “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.”
As far as newborns go, he’s a physically imposing one; he’s played by a beefed-up Will Poulter, the 6ft 3 British actor who, in addition to making an appearance in Johnny Flynn’s independent film The Score, was most recently seen on the big screen dying horribly at the hands of the Hrga in Midsommar. “People online were saying, ‘Oh, Tom Cruise should be Adam Warlock,’” says Gunn, who had other ideas. “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.” Ah yeah. Since a character of this scale will shortly enter the game, you can see how useful it would be to have him on the board for the future Multiverse Saga. “He could become this really important character,”taunts Gunn. It appears that the time spent nurturing him in that cocoon was worthwhile.
