The Guardians of the Galaxy schedule is going to start getting very busy very quickly. Not only are they showing up in Thor Love & Thunder, but then they have an upcoming Christmas Special on Disney+ and then their next film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3!
Today it was announced that the role of Adam Warlock (whose presence was greatly missed in the Infinity Saga Phase of the MCU) has been cast.
Sources tell Deadline that Will Poulterhas landed the role of Warlock in Marvel’s anticipated sequel. James Gunn is returning to direct, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige producing.
Like with any Marvel film, details behind the plot are being kept under lock and key. Production is expected to start in November.
The character was first teased in a post-credit scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, when Ayesha, played by Elizabeth Debicki, unveils to her chambermaid the perfect Sovereign she has created to help destroy the Guardians once and for all. Ever since that scene, fans have waited patiently to see who would ultimately play that character, with their wishes now granted.
