The future of the MCU continues to grow in new and exciting ways with one of the most anticipated projects being James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3. Following months of rumors and speculation, it has been confirmed that the latest installment in Gunn’s trilogy will feature the debut of Adam Warlock. As first reported by Deadline, We’re The Millers star Will Poulter will join the MCU and portray the iconic character.

Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and significantly developed by Roy Thomas and Jim Starlin, Adam Warlock’s earliest comic book appearances were in Fantastic Four #66–67 in the fall of 1967. The allegorical messiah was originally created by scientists on Earth calling themselves the Enclave looking to create an artificial, perfect human. However, it appears his origin will look different on the big screen. Adam Warlock’s cocoon appears briefly in an end-credit sequence of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 when Ayesha states that he is the next step in the Sovereign race’s evolution.

Director James Gunn confirmed the casting reports Monday evening via Twitter.

Will Poulter

William Jack “Will” Poulter was born on 28 January 1993 in Hammersmith, London. His mother Caroline Poulter is a former nurse while his father Neil Poulter is a Professor of Cardiology.

At an early age, he developed an interest in acting. He went to the Harrodian School where he studied drama. It was one of his teachers who inspired him to audition for roles in movies.

Poulter was educated at The Harrodian School, where he participated in drama. He said in an interview that his drama teacher (Laura Lawson) encouraged his audition for the Hammer and Tongs film, Son of Rambow (2007), by knocking on his English class window and mouthing “auditions” while pointing at a flier.

He was later cast as the spiky-haired delinquent “Lee Carter”. Laura Lawson was also responsible for the E4 comedy sketch show, School of Comedy (2009), in which Poulter appears portraying various roles, such as “Mr. Mills” and a South African security guard. Beginning as an after-school club, School of Comedy (2009) involves children parodying the world of adults.

In 2008, Poulter was cast as “Eustace Clarence Scrubb” in the third film of the “Narnia” franchise, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010). “Dawn Treader” was filmed in Queensland, Australia.

During his almost six-month stay in Australia, Poulter was accompanied by his mother and younger sister. His father was not able to stay the entire time because of work, and his older siblings were able to stay for about two weeks, until they had to return to England. Poulter noted that, though it was hard to be separated from his family, they were able to keep in touch through phone calls and emails.

More recently, Poulter appeared in the British independent film Wild Bill (2011), directed by Dexter Fletcher, and played Kenny Rossmore, his first American film character, in the comedic We’re the Millers (2013), a major box office hit in the United States.
