Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Casts Will Poulter as Adam Warlock
Warlock was teased in a post-credits scene from The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Since then, Marvel fans have been eager to find out who will play the character. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to start production in November 2021. James Gunn will direct the movie and Kevin Feige will serve as a producer. Deadline’s sources say the search for an actor to play Warlock began at the end of August. Gunn and the executives met with several actors alongside Poulter.
Seth Green, who plays Howard the Duck, has previously teased that Guardians of the Galaxy 3’s story will focus on Gamora and Nebula. Green said, “The only thing I know is that it’s the girls’ story, it’s the sisters’ story, that it’s Gamora and Nebula’s story. So, I don’t know if it’s a prequel, or if it comes off in the new timeline that’s splintered post-the Time Heist. Honestly, I don’t know anything about it. I wouldn’t be hurt if Howard’s not a central character to the sisters’ story.”
Gunn is also working on The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which is expected to introduce “one of the greatest MCU characters of all time.” The Holiday Special is set release in 2022 and The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will release on May 5, 2023.
