Published 2 weeks ago
We only got a glimpse of Adam Warlock in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer, but thanks to Empire, we have a new photo of Will Poulter and his gains are no joke.
Check out how large he got for the movie:
Adam Warlock is "definitely not a good guy" in #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3, James Gunn tells Empire.

Though Warlock was supposed to be Thanos’ match in the comics, in this film, we’re going to see him try and hunt down the Guardians as per the orders of the Sovereign. Director James Gunn describes the character:
“It’s kind of more complicated than that… But he’s definitely not a good guy. What we’re seeing is the infant form of Warlock, newly out of the cocoon, and he does not understand life very well. He’s basically a baby.”
No doubt, the ‘baby-in-a-bodybuilder’s-body’ is going to be a source of laughs for the film, but I think that the movie is eventually going to end with Adam siding with the heroes in a very meaningful, emotional way. Gun continues:
“People online were saying, ‘Oh, Tom Cruise should be Adam Warlock… I wanted somebody who was youthful, and I wanted the person who had the dramatic chops and the comedic chops, not only for this movie but for what Marvel will use Adam Warlock for in the future… He could become this really important character.”
Hopefully Poulter manages to deliver and potentially becomes the leader of the next iteration of the Guardians.
Catch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 when it comes to cinemas on May 5.
