After working with James Gunn on the Peacemaker series, the director brought Chukwudi Iwuji on for a role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. For quite some time, everyone involved remained tight-lipped about who the actor would be playing. It was rumored that he would be playing the Silver Surfer but at the time would not comment on it. Now at last we know who the actor is playing.
At this year’s SDCC during Marvel’s big Hall H panel it was revealed that Chukwudi Iwuji would be portraying the High Evolutionary in the upcoming movie. In addition, the actor appeared at the panel in full costume. You can see the full image below:
The Guardians of the Galaxy last appeared in Thor: Love and Thunder. Here is the synopsis for the film:
The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
Directed by Taika Waititi and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, the Thor solo film stars Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Jaimie Alexander, Taika Waititi, Russell Crowe, Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
