James Gunn says he almost included Warlock in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' but eventually decides to save the character for later.
James Gunn hints at the treat he is planning for "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3". The director reveals that he has written a treatment for Adam Warlock. The character almost joined "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" but the helmer decides to save him for future installment.
"I love Adam Warlock. He's one of my favorite characters. In all truth, I wrote an early treatment where I had Adam Warlock as a part," Gunn reveals in an interview with /Film. "It was Adam Warlock. He was a big part of the screenplay and I realized it was one character too many."
"And I adored the character. I adored what we had done with him. I think we did something really creative and unique with Adam Warlock. But it was one character too many and I didn't want to lose Mantis and Mantis was more organically part of the movie anyway. So I decided to save him for later."
In a separate interview, Kevin Feige confirms Warlock will be a major player in Marvel Cinematic Universe. "He's not in Infinity War. But he will be a part of the future Marvel cosmic universe and a pretty important part of that," the producer says. "If he appears anywhere in the future, it'll be in Guardians."
