Who Is Adam Warlock?
Adam Warlock, first known as Him, was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. He made his debut in 1967’s Fantastic Four #66-67. Later, he was created properly by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane and debuted in 1972’s Marvel Premiere #1. In both cases, he proved to be an important part of the cosmic side of Marvel Universe. Moreover, he played a significant role in various Infinity Stones storylines.
Therefore, the casting of Adam Warlock and his debut in MCU should be done properly. Given how important this character is, the actor playing the role should be apt. That is why Marvel fans were critical of Will Poulter playing the role. But now, they’re swooning over his glow-up!
Given Adam Warlock’s ties to Thanos in the comics, it was believed that he’d make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War or Endgame. However, that wasn’t the case! The director/writer of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 James Gunn tweeted, “As you guys know I often strike down false rumors, so… um… Welcome to the Guardians family, Will Poulter,” He further said, “He’s an amazing actor and wonderful guy. See you in a couple of weeks.”
Earlier it was believed that Zac Efron will play the role of Adam Warlock. But James Gunn cleared the air with his tweet and whole-heartedly welcomed Will Poulter to the Marvel family! Despite a few movies in Phase 4 being delayed and rescheduled, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 remains slated to be released on 5th May 2023.
