Yup!, former child star Will Poulter (“Son of Rambow”, “The Maze Runner”, “Detroit”) will play comic fave Adam Warlock in the third “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie.
The character was first teased at the end of James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, with Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) introducing her chambermaid to the chap she’s created to destroy the Guardians. Enter Adam.
Zac Efron had been long rumoured for the role of Warlock but according to Deadline, Poulter gave the best screen test of any actor who came in to meet Marvel and director Gunn.
Horror fans will recall that Poulter was near cast as Pennywise in the film adaptation of “Stephen King’s It”— good to see him finally get his blockbuster dues.
