James Gunn has been a busy little bee, he’s just fired the best Superman in modern history and is about to reveal his plans for the DCU, but he still has Guardians of the Galaxy 3 coming out. Empire has a new image of Adam Warlock, one of the main protagonists.
Yep, it’s the ‘eyebrow kid’ or Will Poulter as he prefers, in what is, a pretty good-looking superhero suit.
James Gunn has been asked about Adam Warlock and said:
“… 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.”
This is interesting, since that sounds like Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, a newly born super, finding his way throughout the universe.
It seems like Warlock will be part of the MCU for a while. Gunn was asked about Tom Cruise, since a lot of people wanted to see him play Warlock, but Gunn said:
“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.”
So will Gunn be back to direct anything new for the MCU in the future? Or is he just hinting that Warlock is a character that will be showing up in Phase 5?
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be in the cinema 5th May.
