With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 slated to enter production next month, the cast and crew are gearing up to return to James Gunn‘s world of outlaw heroes. Set to join them on this installment is franchise newcomer Will Poulter, who will portray Adam Warlock in the threequel. While Gunn has shared his excitement over Poulter’s casting, the actor has not publicly commented on the casting until now.
In a recent interview with FlipYourWig.net, to promote the Hulu series Dopesick, Poulter showcased his excitement over getting cast in the role. “I feel very, very lucky,” Poulter said. “I’m very honored to have been welcomed into the Marvel family, and particularly into a franchise like Guardians of the Galaxy, which I regard to be incredibly creative and very, very unique. James Gunn is someone I really, really admire so I feel very lucky.”
Filming on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will kickoff next month. James Gunn will return to write and direct the film for Marvel Stars. The threequel will hit theaters in May 2023.
