The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer shown at SDCC 2022 included a quick look at Adam Warlock, whose design is simple yet perfect.
San Diego Comic-Con 2022 attendees got to see the first look at James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, including a quick look at Will Poulter’s Adam Warlock, and his design is simple but perfect. The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues exploring its cosmic side with new characters and adventures, but the ones that are still leading this side of this connected universe are the Guardians of the Galaxy, who are coming back with their third adventure after a couple of obstacles during production.
Simply titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the story is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame and after Thor (Chris Hemsworth) spent some time with them in Thor: Love and Thunder, and while plot details remain unknown, it will see Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and the rest of the team going on a new mission to defend the universe (again) and protect one of their own. Meanwhile, Gamora (Zoe Saldaña) is still missing and the team will come across two very important but dangerous characters: the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji), said to be the main antagonist and through which Rocket Raccoon’s origins could be explained, and Adam Warlock.
Warlock’s arrival to the MCU was teased in one of the many post-credits scenes of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 where Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) revealed she had created a being powerful enough to get rid of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and right there she decided to call him “Adam”. Now, during Marvel’s Hall H panel at SDCC 2022, Kevin Feige dropped the first looks at some of the MCU’s upcoming movies, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and the first official look at Adam Warlock reveals his simple yet brilliant design, very different from Ayesha’s bright and over-the-top look.
Guardians 3 Trailer Confirms Will Poulter’s Adam Warlock Casting Was The Right Choice
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer shown at SDCC 2022 made some interesting reveals about the movie, such as Gamora now being with the Ravagers, a brief look at baby Rocket Raccoon (thus teasing the exploration of his backstory), and a quick look at Adam Warlock. Given how big and popular he is and how long the audience has waited to see him as part of the MCU, there have been a lot of rumors and speculation about Adam Warlock’s design and there have even been doubts about Will Poulter’s casting, but that brief look at him in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer puts an end to all the rumors and doubts. Adam Warlock’s look is actually quite simple, with a muted gold rather than a bright one like Ayesha, the gem on his forehead (which is quite subtle), and a simple red (and possibly blue, too) costume that looks to be comic book accurate. The MCU has been leaning more towards comic book accurate costumes for its characters throughout Phase 4, and Adam Warlock seems to be following this trend, thus putting fans’ doubts to rest.
Adam Warlock’s look being comic book accurate also ends any doubts about Will Poulter’s casting as he very much looks like the character, and even if his full costume and characterization have some differences from its comic book version, Poulter will surely have no problem selling the part to the audience. It’s unknown when Marvel will release a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer for the whole world to see, but until then, fans can rest assured that Adam Warlock has a simple but comic book accurate design.
