One of the most anticipated elements of Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3 is undoubtedly Adam Warlock: Will Poulter’s character will make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the occasion of the last James Gunn film for the franchise, but today we still know too much little as to his role in this universe.
Talking about it, a new photo of Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3 shows us, Adam Warlock, was James Gunn himself: the director of The Suicide Squad thought to warn us, reminding us not to expect a Warlock hero, but more a kind of child still in its infancy.
He’s not a hero. What we’ll see is the infant form of Warlock, he’ll have just come out of his cocoon and still won’t be able to understand much about life. He’s like a baby. […] People online were saying: ‘Oh, Tom Cruise should be Adam Warlock.’ But I wanted someone who had a youthful look, I wanted someone who had drama in his mind but also comedy, not only for this film but also in the way Marvel will exploit Warlock in the future ” were the words of the director.
