Will Poulter reveals that he at first had no concept he was auditioning for the function of cosmic superhero Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Will Poulter exposed that he at first had no concept which Marvel character he was auditioning for in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The star was just informed near completion of the casting procedure that he would be embodying the function of Marvel’s cosmic hero Adam Warlock.
“I first auditioned in June of last year , and that was the first time I auditioned, and then I kind of got the role in September, I think,” the star stated in an interview with The Playlist. “And then started shooting in December…I didn’t know what character, initially, I was auditioning for. I kind of knew sort of closer to the time [of casting] who I was reading for. Although I wasn’t familiar with Adam Warlock beforehand, I was very familiar with Guardians of the Galaxy, and it was kind of my favorite ‘planet’ within the Marvel universe, if you like.”
Produced by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, Adam Warlock debuted throughout Great 4 #66 and #67 in 1967, where he was unnamed and described just as “Him.” He was reestablished as Adam Warlock in 1972’s Marvel Best #1 by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane. The character ended up being a vital part of the Marvel Universe’s cosmic side and played a considerable function in the numerous Infinity stories. The character was quickly teased in among the post-credits scenes of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 when Sovereign High Priestess Ayesha exposed his cocoon, influenced by his initial Great 4 intro.
The news that Poulter was cast as Adam Warlock broke in Oct. 2021. The star just recently detailed the rigorous diet plan and exercise program he needed to go on after signing up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “It’s been a lot of gym work and a very, very specific diet,” he stated in April 2022. “Quantities of food you wouldn’t necessarily want to ingest. And other times not enough food. I’ve gone through a series of different diets over the last few months. Now I’m in a maintenance phase, which is quite nice…I’ve gone through periods of looking at food and feeling like I can’t face it, and then you blink and the next minute you’re ready to eat furniture because you’re so hungry.”
Production covered on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in May 2022, however throughout recording, writer/director James Gunn applauded Poulter’s efficiency as Warlock, thinking audiences will rapidly toss their assistance behind the brand-new MCU character. “He’s the best, Gunn said of the actor. “He’s eliminating it. People are going to actually like Adam — or like? They’re going to value Adam Warlock, I’ll state.”
In addition to Poulter, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn and Sylvester Stallone. The movie is arranged to open in theaters on May 5, 2023.
