What was revealed in the new Guardians of The Galaxy trailer?

During the Marvel panel at San Diego Comic Con Director James Gunn revealed that Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 is going to be the beginning of the end for our favourite team.

Gamora has returned as the leader of the Ravengers, but she doesn’t remember anything. This leaves Quill in quite an awkward position!

The filming has wrapped on Vol 3 and sees newcomers like Maria Bakalova as Cosmo The Space Dog and Chukwudi Iwuji as the High Evolutionary. However, the most anticipated character is Will Poulter’s role as Adam Warlock.

Who is Adam Warlock aka the perfect human being?

Adam Warlock’s presence in the MCU was teased at the end of Guardians Of The Galaxy 2. Ayesha feared the sovereign council would punish her for her defeat by the guardians, so she decided to use a birth pod to create a character called Adam to enact her revenge.

He first appeared in the Fantastic Four comic, where he was simply known as ‘Him’ and was created by a group of scientists called the Enclave. Warlock appeared later as a Jesus-like saviour.

The character has energy-based powers and can also wield an object called the Soul Gem. This makes him even more deadly and strengthens his powers.

However, Adam Warlock must watch out as he also has an evil future self called Magnus that often appears to terrorise him, and everyone else, in the comics.

What is Will Poulter’s height?

Fans watching the Marvel panel at Comic Con this week loved all the juicy gossip surrounding the new Guardians Of The Galaxy movie. However, they couldn’t help but notice Adam Warlock actor Will Poulter towering over all his castmates on the stage.

How tall is Will Poulter? According to his IMDB page the Dopesick actor is about 6ft 3in tall.

According to the comics the ‘perfect’ human Adam Warlock is 6ft 2in, so Will Poulter fits this casting perfectly.

The British actor was also born on 28 January 2993 and is 29 years old.

Will Poulter continues to surprise with his acting roles

Will Poulter was first discovered as a child-actor in the 2007 film Son Of Rainbow. He then went on to star in the third Narnia film, The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader in 2010.

The actor then began getting roles in his late teenage years and early twenties. He shared a famous kiss with both Jennifer Aniston and Emma Roberts in the hit comedy We’re The Millers in 2013, as he played the awkward and inexperienced Kenny Rossmore.

Poulter is no stranger to big hit blockbusters as he also had a role in The Maze Runner alongside Dylan O’Brien, but since 2014 Will Poulter has been acting in smaller independent films including Midsommer alongside Florence Pugh. He also starred in the Netflix Black Mirror film Bandersnatch.

Adam Warlock is set to be Will Poulter’s biggest role to date, after his acclaimed performance in the Disney+ series Dopesick. Set to be released on 5 May 2023, the new Guardians film will see the beginning of the end for our favourite team of loveable misfits.
