Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teased the further expansion of the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of the characters hinted at during the film’s end credits sequences was Adam Warlock.
During the scene, we see Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) expressing her plans to destroy the Guardians once and for all. We see a cocoon that houses what Ayesha hopes serves as a viable threat to the team, to which she names him Adam.
A fan on Twitter suggested director James Gunn that Academy Award-nominated actor Tom Cruise would be a great choice to play Adam Warlock. Gunn replied back, expressing that the idea of Ayesha creating the perfect man as someone in his mid-fifties is odd:
Don’t you think it would be weird for Ayesha to create the perfect man as someone in his mid-fifties? (Also: never said AW was in Vol 3) https://t.co/8cOFNH47xi

Gunn’s comments not only hint that Adam Warlock will be much younger than a Tom Cruise type, but also that he is not officially confirmed to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. As of right now, it remains unknown when the character will make his proper cinematic debut.
When do you think we will finally see Adam Warlock? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding Guardians of the Galaxy and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

5 Reasons ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Is Better Than The Original
When Guardians of the Galaxy hit cinemas in 2014 it surprised everyone. Offering a unique blend of whiz-bang intergalactic excitement, a groovy out-of-this-world soundtrack, a smörgåsbord of oddball characters, and wacky rib-clutching comedy, Guardians had it all. It was definitely the Marvel movie to beat… until Vol. 2 came out.
Offering the same blend of winning ingredients, but amping up the story, the characters, and the emotional resonance, Guardians Vol. 2 accomplishes the rare sequel feat of being even better than the original. A lot of people will disagree with me, but I believe the first film, while excellent, had certain storytelling flaws, which the sequel was able to remarkably overcome. The result is a brand-spanking new adventure for Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot, that improves upon the original in several ways.
