Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, Midsommar) has been cast as Adam Warlock in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Deadline.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and Sean Gunn will all reprise their roles as Guardians.
Ayesha, played by Elizabeth Debicki, teased Warlock at the end of Vol. 2 when she announced she was working on the “perfect” enemy for the Guardians.
Since the film’s original announcement at Disney Investor Day last year, Poulter’s casting is the first substantial news regarding it.
Director James Gunn took to Twitter to announce Vol. 3’s production start date, including a warm welcome to Poulter for joining the crew!:
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will blast off into theaters on May 5, 2023.
