One of these days, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will have to rope in ‘Adam Warlock’ to its extensive roster of heroes. The franchise will soon dive deep into the world of cosmic superheroes as Avengers: Infinity War plans to pit the MCU’s line-up against Thanos, the Mad Titan. However, if the intergalactic tyrant wants to complete his collection of Infinity Stones, it seems like Adam Warlock will need to be brought in. After all, the powerful character does wield one of the gems in the comics – but fans shouldn’t expect Marvel Studios to rush the character’s debut.
No, according to the president of Marvel Studios, fans won’t get to see Adam Warlock appear in Avengers: Infinity War.
In an interview, Kevin Feige said James Gunn is already developing Adam Warlock’s character. Gunn then stepped in to clarify, saying that the hero was not being made for Avengers: Infinity War
“He’s not. He’s not in Infinity War. But he will be a part of the future Marvel cosmic universe and a pretty important part of that,” Gunn said.
Neither of the creatives could confirm whether Adam Warlock would get his debut in Guardians of the Galaxy 3, but there is enough evidence to make fans feel confident about the debut. The director confirmed he had just started work on writing the third film, a timestamp which makes Warlock’s creation all the most suspect. And, during a later interview, Feige said that “if Warlock appears anywhere in the future, it’ll be in Guardians.”
In fact, Warlock was even teased in the first Guardians of the Galaxy. He was present in a cocoon which was a part of ‘The Collector’s’ precious collection. But no further teases have been given till now. It would be interesting to see whether any more hints are dropped towards the character in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
