Despite being a major character in The Infinity Gauntlet crossover event, Adam Warlock was notably missing from Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War and the writers have finally revealed why.
During a recent interview with Back Story Magazine via Comicbookmovie.com, Avengers: Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely talked a bit about Adam Warlock. Apparently, they never considered using the character. According to the writers, introducing Adam Warlock would have taken the spotlight away from other Avengers: Endgame characters and they didn’t want that:
“The logic right here was to honor the MCU as how it had already existed and the characters you’d already fallen in love with. We did not want to give too much story space to introducing a whole new person. It would rob you from somebody.”
While he didn’t appear in the film, Adam Warlock was mentioned in an after-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It has been assumed that the character will appear in in the third film. But from the look of things, the writers didn’t want Adam Warlock to steal anyone’s thunder!

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
