GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 Was Originally Going To Feature Adam Warlock; Will Now Likely Debut In VOL. 3

It's been confirmed that Adam Warlock was the character James Gunn regrettably had to cut from the GOTG Vol. 2 script, but from the sounds of things he will play a role in the third installment...

Some time ago, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn made reference to a character that was originally part of the sequel's screenplay, but that he was forced to remove when he realized he was already juggling too many A-holes.

At the time, many fans guessed that it might have been Adam Warlock, and Gunn has now confirmed that it was indeed "Him" during an interview with /Film.


“I love Adam Warlock. He’s one of my favorite characters. In all truth, I wrote an early treatment where I had Adam Warlock as a part…this is your big scoop, because I don’t think I’ve told anybody this… It was Adam Warlock. He was a big part of the screenplay and I realized it was one character too many.

And I adored the character. I adored what we had done with him. I think we did something really creative and unique with Adam Warlock. But it was one character too many and I didn’t want to lose Mantis and Mantis was more organically part of the movie anyway. So I decided to save him for later.”

In a separate interview, Kevin Feige revealed that Gunn is indeed developing Warlock to be a major player in The MCU further down the line - but that he will not be a part of Avengers: Infinity War. Though this isn't 100% confirmation that the genetically engineered warrior will make his big-screen debut in the recently announced Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it does seem like a fairly safe assumption considering Feige also said, “If he appears anywhere in the future, it’ll be in Guardians.”

Tell us, are you happy to hear Warlock will definitely be joining the MCU at some point? Sound off below!
