The long-rumored role of one of the most powerful and storied characters in the Marvel Universe, Adam Warlock, will be portrayed by Will Poulter in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
The rumor was initially reported by Deadline, and quickly confirmed by director James Gunn on twitter. Poulter also quickly responded to Gunn’s tweet and thanked the director.
The coming of “Him” was teased at the end of Guardians 2, with the shot of the golden cocoon (which the character emerged from in Fantastic Four #66-67 from 1967).
Adam Warlock rose to prominence in the stories written and illustrated by Jim Starlin in the 1970s, and was also an integral figure in the original Infinity Gauntlet series (by Starlin, George Perez, and Ron Lim).
