Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Casts Will Poulter as Adam Warlock - IGN

IGN 12 October, 2021 - 05:00am

Deadline is reporting that the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie has cast Will Poulter (Midsommar, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch) as the character that was first teased at the end of 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

While Guardian 2's main villain was Ego, played by Kurt Russell, a plot in the movie involved the Guardians helping out then betraying an alien race known as the Sovereign, led by Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki). Humiliated by the betrayal, Ayesha was last seen overlooking the creation of a perfect being named Adam that she will use to destroy the Guardians.

How exactly Adam Warlock will be introduced in the third movie is being kept under wraps and there's a good chance Adam Warlock will diverge from his comic origins.

Adam Warlock was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, though has undergone some major revisions over the years. Originally an artificial being created by a group known as the Enclave, Adam Warlock has been reborn into the Marvel universe numerous times as either a hero or a villain. He is typically more involved with the cosmic aspects of the Marvel universe.

That’s about all we know, since Marvel movies tend to be very secretive, but luckily Adam Warlock has a long and beautifully nonsensical backstory in the comics we can dig into. Here’s the elevator pitch: He was artificially created to be the ultimate man, and his level of cosmic awareness is so far beyond the comprehension of regular people that he basically doesn’t give a shit about anyone but himself unless he absolutely has to (like, say, when Thanos gets the Infinity Gauntlet and tries to wipe out half of all life to impress the literal personification of Death).

Adam Warlock is also the ultimate Christ figure, because unlike Neo from The Matrix (or whoever your preferred messiah is), Adam Warlock can sacrifice his life and come back over and over again. When he dies, he’s reborn somewhere in the galaxy in his magic cocoon, which grants him whatever new superpowers a writer thinks will be cool, and then he can be show up somewhere for a big crossover event, heroically give his life for everyone else, and then go back to his cocoon for the next big crossover event.

James Gunn Confirms Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Timeline

We Got This Covered 12 October, 2021 - 05:00am

With The Suicide Squad in his rearview mirror and Peacemaker about to release, James Gunn is finally turning his attentions to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Marvel fans have been desperately waiting for the final chapter in the cosmic trilogy for years now, but at this stage, filming has still yet to begin. But at least the director is on hand to reveal the odd, not-all-that-spoilery detail about what we’ve got in store from the movie on Twitter.

His latest mini-revelation confirms when in the MCU timeline Guardians 3 will take place. One fan asked Gunn on Twitter if we’ll be seeing more of “mature Groot” in the film, to which the director responded, “Well years have passed.” This then caused another tweeter to ask for clarification on what year Vol. 3 is set in. Gunn followed that up with a brief but (somewhat) informative reply: “Now.”

We can likely take Gunn’s comment as confirmation that the threequel is set in the present-day of the MCU. However, his response is a little confusing given his previous tweet that it’s also years after Avengers: Endgame. That movie moved up the franchise’s present to 2023. With Vol. 3 releasing in 2023 itself, it’s probably more accurate to say it’s set in 2025 or 2026.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The continuity specifics are something we can work out once we’ve seen the film. For now, it’s important to note that the plot will presumably kick off after the Guardians have been searching for the missing Gamora for years, following her disappearance after the battle against Thanos. So it’s possible that Groot won’t be the only one who has grown a lot over that time.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is thought to start shooting before the year is out ahead of its release on May 5, 2023. Remember, we’ve also got The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special coming Christmas 2022. James Gunn fans will likewise want to check out Peacemaker on HBO Max in January.
