Will Poulter to play Adam Warlock in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Will Poulter is joining the ensemble of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3, as he jumps aboard that Marvel screen universe.

Deadline is reporting that Will Poulter, the British actor, who has featured in Detroit and The Revenant, will play Adam Warlock in the upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3. The character, a perfect cosmic being, was teased at the end of the series’ second film but is now confirmed to make his debut in James Gunn’s final film in the series.

Production on the film is expected to begin next month. Poulter reportedly won the part in the face of stiff competition, that included 1917's George MacKay, to win the part. Marvel boss, Kevin Feige has said in the past that the character of Adam Warlock will be integral to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the series expands further into the cosmic elements it has introduced thus far.

It certainly looks like great casting from where we’re sitting, with Poulter having shown off his dramatic chops in films like Detroit whilst seeming equally at home in genre fare, like Netflix’s mind-bending interactive Black Mirror episode, Bandersnatch. 

The next Guardians film was always looking fun, but seeing how Poulter’s character will interact with the motley crew of space-faring adventurers is something we can happily look forward to.
