New look at Adam Warlock in Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

The best look yet at Adam Warlock played by Will Poulter in Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been officially revealed. 

Featured briefly in the first trailer for the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Adam Warlock is coming to the MCU played by Will Poulter and Empire has revealed the clearest look at the character so far. 

“He’s definitely not a good guy,” explains director James Gunn. “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.” 

Gunn went on to speak about the future of the character, with the intention for Marvel to use Poulter’s Adam Warlock after the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie. 


“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.” 

Two rumoured LEGO Marvel sets are reported to focus on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and with Adam Warlock making his Marvel Studios in the film, it could be a chance for his first minifigure. 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is currently scheduled to release on May 5, 2023, but in the meantime, the team’s holiday special is streaming now on Disney+.
