Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.3 Finally Reveals Who’s Playing Adam Warlock

Adam Warlock has finally been officially cast in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 and he will be played by Will Poulter.

As with just about any comic book character, there are countless iterations. Not to mention the versions that may appear in animations or movies. One such character is the cosmic being known as Adam Warlock.

To put it bluntly, Adam Warlock is incredibly powerful and near invincible. He can fly, has super strength, speed, and agility. He can manipulate matter and physics as we know it. As his name also clearly suggests, he is also powerful in the mystic arts. Pretty much you name it, Adam Warlock can do it.

Spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2 below

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe may remember the tease in 2017s Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2. At the end of the movie, it was implied that this cosmic being was created by the Sovereign, who was not best pleased by the antics of Peter Quill and co.

However, since that time, we have heard practically nothing of Adam Warlock’s existence in the MCU, until now. In an exclusive report from Deadline, actor Will Poulter will take up the almighty role of Mr Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3.

It is worth mentioning that Marvel hasn’t announced Will Poulter as Adam Warlock just yet, as the news comes via sources of Deadline. If true, I think casting Will Poulter as Adam Warlock makes for an interesting choice.

Will Poulter in my opinion is a very good actor and has starred in the likes of The Chronicles of Narnia, The Maze Runner, and The Revenant. Gamers may also recognise Will Poulter as a character in The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope. However, landing a role as Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3 is arguably his biggest task yet.
