In the comics, Adam Warlock is linked to Thanos and the Infinity Stones, can his story in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 work without them?
It’s now official: the highly anticipated Adam Warlock will be played by Will Poulter (Black Mirror) in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. If we initially spoke of Zac Efron to take on this role, it is ultimately the names of Regé-Jean Page (The Bridgertons Chronicle) and George McKay (1917), which were mentioned by Marvel Studios. It’s been several years now that MCU fans have awaited the arrival of Adam Warlock on the big screen, and for good reason, in the comics he is described as one of Thanos’ greatest enemies. He is also known for his ability to harness the energy of the Infinity Gauntlet without being weakened by it. The superhero therefore arrives after the death of the Mad Titan within the franchise, can her story still work without the Mad Titan and the Infinity Stones?
In the comics, Adam Warlock had already existed for ten years before he crossed paths with Thanos. So he had a life before and after the Mad Titan, which is why his involvement in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 and potential other films from MCU should be just as interesting without the Mad Titan and the Infinity Stones. With his awesome powers, he could be a great asset in stopping the next threats to come., be it Kang the Conqueror recently featured in Loki or Gorr the Slayer of Gods, Annihilus or even Galactus. What would be interesting all the same would be for Marvel Studios to allow Adam Warlock to take advantage of a gemstone other than that of the soul, as his power allowing him to suck the minds of his enemies gives weight to his character.
