Adam Warlock’s appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer has received the most attention. The well-liked James Gunn-directed trilogy set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be completed with the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaa, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Karen Gillan, Will Poulter will play the incredibly potent comic book character Adam Warlock. After Poulter’s casting was revealed in October 2021, fans of the series have been waiting impatiently for more information about the character’s live-action debut.

Following the release of the full-length trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which revealed several important details about the upcoming movie, including hints about Rocket (Cooperbackstory, )’s an updated look at the older Groot (Diesel), and a highly anticipated glimpse of Poulter as Adam Warlock, the movie has been the subject of much speculation. YouTube’s in-player metrics reveal that Warlock’s appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer is the most-watchedwatched part of the clip several days after Marvel released it. The video’s viewership specifically peaks in the first second and then reaches its peak at minute 1:26, which includes in quick succession a cameo from an Abilisk, a monster from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, a shot of Warlock, and a snippet of Nebula (Gillan) making an appearance to take a punch from Warlock.

Why MCU Fans Are Excited For Adam Warlock

The Most-Watched scene in the GOTG 3 trailer is Adam Warlock's Appearance

The trailer metrics demonstrate how eager viewers were to see Warlock’s MCU debut, which has been eagerly anticipated for years. Even in the 2013 film Thor: The Dark World, a possible shot of the Golden Gladiator’s golden cocoon was hinted at, though Gunn later clarified that the scene wasn’t actually showing a Warlock in particular but a member of his species. The Golden Gladiator will now appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With a mid-credits sequence showcasing Warlock’s Birth Pod and witnessing Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki), the Golden High Priestess of the Sovereign, name the creation Adam, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 provided a much more overt tease of the character’s appearance.

In the mid-credits scene, Ayesha describes Warlock as being created for the Guardians of the Galaxy, which is why she describes his strength, intelligence, and prowess as worthy foes. Although Warlock’s comic book counterpart is a hero and joined the Guardians team, both versions of the character were intended to be perfect beings. This information suggests that Warlock may follow a similar path to Nebula in the Guardians of the Galaxy series, beginning as a bad guy and the team’s foe before becoming a member of their family.

Warlock is one of Gunn’s favorite Marvel characters, and he’s not the only one to say this. In spite of the possibility that the current Guardians of the Galaxy team will leave, Warlock is likely to play a significant role in the MCU going forward due to his origin myth, impressive powers, connection to the Infinity Stones, and battles with his dark half Magus. Given the obvious excitement surrounding his impending debut, Warlock’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 story arc has the potential to turn him into an MCU fan favorite right away.
