An awesome new image imagines Superman actor Henry Cavill as James Gunn’s Adam Warlock for the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
Courtesy of digital artist BossLogic comes a stunning piece that shows Superman star Henry Cavill as James Gunn’s Adam Warlock for the highly-anticipated Marvel Studios movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The image essentially takes Henry Cavill’s appearance in his Netflix series The Witcher and changes it around so that he has the appearance of what could be James Gunn’s Adam Warlock. Henry Cavill has yellow eyes with what appears to be a gem at the center of his forehead along with a red and blue outfit that includes a cool cape.
See what Superman actor Henry Cavill could look like as James Gunn’s Adam Warlock in the image below.
From the look of things, BossLogic wants Henry Cavill to drop Superman and become Adam Warlock for James Gunn’s next Guardians movie. Adam Warlock’s live-action debut was teased during one of the post-credits scenes of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While the character did not make an appearance in the movie, it was highly implied that Ayesha would be sending Adam Warlock after the Guardians. The role has not yet been cast.
Unfortunately, Henry Cavill’s future as Superman is currently in question, with Warner Bros. reportedly planning to put the character aside for the time being. Instead, Cavill will soon trade in his Superman suit for the lead role in Netflix’s highly-anticipated adaptation of The Witcher.
Based on the fantasy series of novels and short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, Netflix’s The Witcher will follow Henry Cavill as the monster slayer for hire named Geralt of Rivia. Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich will also serve as an executive producer on the series while Alik Sakharov, Alex Garcia Lopez, and Charlotte Brändström are on board as directors for the eight-episode first season.
