The highly anticipated volume 3 of Guardians of the Galaxy was released yesterday in French cinemas. We came back to the film in our review available here. Unpredictable and often brutal, this last run of the Guardians as we know them is a real breath of fresh air for a mcu losing speed. The only downside that seems to come back with insistence on the side of the opinions of the spectators: the treatment of the character ofAdam Warlock. It has now been six years since this all-powerful hero of the mcu was teased and fans were eagerly awaiting her arrival in Volume 3. In one of the post-credits scenes from Volume 2, the High Priestess Ayeshafrustrated by her disappointment at the start of the feature film, chooses to send her son » bring him back rocket.

Adam Warlock has only been relegated to the rank of comic side-kick, a child who is a little stupid and who has come out of the family cocoon too quickly. Most of his lines of dialogue were about his newly adopted pet after a Ravager was executed. Will Poulter is also not renowned for having a charisma to shake the walls. If the actor plays the slightly retarded teenager very well, the writing of his character is particularly weak. Many expected thatAdam Warlock becomes the cornerstone of phase 5 and 6 of the mcu but his destiny seems to tend towards the principle that he will simply integrate the universe of Guardians of the Galaxy… even that it will tumble into the crossovers linked to the avengers.

Since the Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3 was the last film of james gunnit seems unlikely that a film will be made on the new team given the aura of the filmmaker who has now left for home DC Comics. The composition of the group as seen during the first post-credits scene (Kraglin, Rocket, Adam Warlock, Cosmo, Groot and one of the children present in the Master of Evolution’s ship) could return at the same time as Star Lordat the time of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.

In conclusion, Adam Warlock could only be relegated to a rank of ” hero occasional, in the same way as the other protagonists of the mcu. Yet another distribution addition. The next feature film mcu to come will be The Marvelsscheduled for next November.
