Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3: James Gunn Confirms Adam Warlock is a “Infant” and “Not a Good Guy”

The vast comic universe full of characters has been vividly brought to life by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Due to contractual obligations with other studios, they were first compelled to steer clear of the Fantastic Four and the X-Men as well as other well-known comic book characters, but they meticulously adapted some of the more distinctive and outlandish characters to the movies.

The popularity of the Guardians of the Galaxy is a fantastic illustration of that. The adorable intergalactic band of jerks were brought to life in an unexpectedly successful way by Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord), Dave Bautista (Drax), Zoe Saldaa (Gamora), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), and Vin Diesel (Groot).

The ramifications of the ragtag band of space pirates’ tale arc are ready to start showing themselves now that they have been established in the cosmos. One of these repercussions is Adam Warlock, one of the most potent figures in all of Marvel Comics. While the character has been widely anticipated, fans have had to wait to learn more about the MCU’s interpretation of the synthetic entity, aside from the revelation that Will Poulter will be playing him.

Adam Warlock will make his acting debut in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” directed by James Gunn, who recently discussed what to anticipate from him. While he largely kept Warlock’s plot twists a secret, he did give us a general notion of what to anticipate.

James Gunn Sat Down With Empire to Discuss Whether He Would Be a Good or Bad Guy in His Film Debut

According to Marvel Fandom, the Enclave, a race of incredibly intelligent aliens, created Adam Warlock in the comics. The ideal person, the apex of human evolution, was their target. The entity eventually realized that his makers had evil plans and rebelled against them by allying with mankind. When asked whether he would play a good or evil character in his directorial debut, James Gunn sat down with Empire.

When Empire brings up Warlock’s intention to destroy the Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn responds, “It’s kind of more nuanced than that. “He’s undoubtedly not a good guy, though. What we’re witnessing is Warlock’s infant form, fresh from the cocoon, and he has a limited understanding of reality.

He is essentially a baby.” The complex character of Adam Warlock in the movie raises the potential that the gold-hued creatures in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” are the MCU’s equivalent of the Enclave, and that the cocoon Warlock was made it might serve as the beginning of a plot arc akin to that in the comic books.

Gunn continued by explaining their decision to cast Will Poulter as the lead. Tom Cruise should play Adam Warlock, according to several online commenters, he said, but he took a different tack. “I wanted someone who was young, and I wanted the person who had the dramatic skills and the comedy chops, not just for this movie but for what Marvel would employ Adam Warlock for in the future,” said the casting director. Marvel fans reportedly have a lot to look forward to, as the Adam Warlock character appears to be sticking around for the long haul.
