After a lot of rumors and speculations surrounding around the appearance of the fictional superhero character Adam Warlock, appears in the American comic book publication known as Marvel Comics, in the upcoming superhero blockbuster Guardians of The Galaxy Volume 3. The acclaimed director of the film James Gunn has finally confirmed that Will Poulter will play the role of the fan-favorite Adam Warlock.

Based on the reports and sources by Deadline, the 28-year-old Poulter was cast in the film after a search led by director James Gunn and the superhero-based franchise Marvel Studios started at the end of August, with Poulter's screen tests ultimately winning them over.

Adam Warlock was also referenced at the end of the film series second installment Guardian of The Galaxy Volume 2, released back in 2017.

Prior to the confirmation by Gunn of Will Poulter's role in the film, Dave Bautista who will return to reprise his role of Drax the Destroyer in the film, shared the different kind of experiences he had while portraying Drax in the popular film series with ComicBook.com.

"You know, it seems to be Drax's pattern that no matter what his goal is, he gets his ass kicked," Bautista laughed, talking to ComicBook.com, "No superhero has ever gotten their ass kicked so much as Drax!"

The former wrestler Bautista also went on to reveal some details about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and his experience while filming for the last film in the franchise. He said, "It's our third film. We're going to wrap it up, and it's been a hell of a journey with a few bumps. So I'm looking forward to this, man. My cast and obviously the director, James Gunn, they're like family to me. This is kind of where my journey started. It's come full circle and I'm looking forward to wrapping it up. And it's a bittersweet... I mean, I've been doing Guardians since 2013. And, you know, when this comes out, you know, it'll be in 2023, so that's a, you know, 10 year journey."

In the vein of Tony Stark's ominous words in the Avengers: Endgame trailer, "Part of the journey is the end," the Drax actor remains enthusiastic about the conclusion of his and Drax's runs. "You know, all things must end," Bautista says. "And, you know, I'm looking forward to kind of wrapping this up with my friends and family."

With 55-year-old James Gunn serving as the director of the film and production by Kevin Feige, it will feature a sprawling cast of Zoe Saldana in the role of Gamora, Pom Klementieff in the role of Mantis, Chris Pratt in the role of Star-Lord, Vin Diesel in the role of Groot, Bradley Cooper in the role of Rocket, Karen Gillan in the role of Nebula, Elizabeth Debicki in the role of Ayesha and Aean Gunn in the role of Kraglin Obfonteri.

Marvel Studios Guardians of The Galaxy Volume 3 will be released in theatres on May 5, 2023, after a long delay due to the impact of Coronavirus around the world. Distribution of the film takes place under the Walt Disney Motion Pictures.
