New artwork of what Will Poulter could look like as Adam Warlock in ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’ shows just how good of a match the actor might be. The third ‘Guardians’ film, once again directed by The Suicide Squad’s James Gunn, is set to see the rag-tag band of space adventurers reunited for another mission, having last been seen saving humanity from Thanos in ‘Avengers: Endgame’. The family-like troupe of heroes have been through a lot since their second film, ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’, back in 2017, including losing their timeline’s version of Gamora and picking up Chris Hemsworth’s ‘Thor’ for a joint ride.
Recently, Poulter was officially cast in the upcoming MCU flick as Adam Warlock. The character was previously teased in the post-credits scenes of ‘Guardians Vol. 2’ as a secret weapon of Ayesha, the Sovereign villain played by Elizabeth Debicki. In the comics, Warlock was a very important cosmic superhuman in the Marvel Universe, who fought both with and against the ‘Guardians’. The Midsommar and Maze Runner star was a surprising choice to fans, with the actor often associated with comedy, but director James Gunn has been notoriously thorough and accurate with his choices of cast so far.
Now, a new piece of fan-made artwork has given fans a chance to imagine what Poulter could look like in the role. The art, posted to Instagram by user spdrmnkyxxiii, shows the actor’s recognizable face with a cosmic backdrop, surrounded by glowing specks of energy. Poulter is further transformed by the power emitting from his head and eyes, a sign of the character’s powers of energy absorption. The artwork gives Poulter an all-new gold-skinned look (like the golden Sovereign that featured in the previous film), and shows a brief glimpse of how powerful and mighty the young actor can be in the MCU. -IANS
