See Zac Efron become the mighty Adam Warlock for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this amazing image.
After Spider-Man: Far From Home ends and Phase 3 of the MCU concludes, there will be a myriad of possibilities for Marvel Studios and which stories they’ll want to tell going forward. One of the unconcluded teases of the Infinity Saga is the conception and birth of one of the most powerful characters of the Marvel Universe: Adam Warlock. At the end of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, we got to see Ayesha guarding an egg which she calls “Adam”. Even though director James Gunn hasn’t confirmed that this is, in fact, Adam Warlock, he did say that we wouldn’t see Adam Warlock until after Avengers: Infinity War and that he’d be part of the cosmic universe afterward. So it’s safe to assume that egg is, in fact, the powerful sorcerer.
But who would be a good candidate to play such a character in the MCU? Well, some time ago rumors of Jude Law or even Matthew McConaughey were in the mix to portray him. But this time around Zac Efron steps in front of the internet’s fan casting mill and we have this amazing image depicting him as Adam Warlock. Check it out:
Zac Efron is one of those popular Hollywood actors that would fit great into the MCU. Although Zac Efron hasn’t come out to say whether or not he would be interested in playing Adam Warlock, the internet may have made its mind up for him. Zac Efron hasn’t portrayed a superhero for either DC or for Marvel as of now but the traditional importance of Adam Warlock in the comics may make him want to consider it if he were offered the part. If James Gunn wanted to set up Adam Warlock for Phase 3 and Marvel Studios was reluctant to use him only even as a cameo for the Infinity Saga, then it must mean that they have bigger plans for the character. Alas, Zac Efron would be a perfect pick for the part.
Zac Efron is currently taking part in more mature-toned films. Zac Efron currently stars in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile in which he portrays the serial killer Ted Bundy. Zac Efron seems to want to leave behind his fame as the High School Musical star and be treated as a more serious method actor.
Would you like to see Zac Efron become Adam Warlock for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3? Are you excited James Gunn is returning to helm Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3? Sound off in the comment section down below!
Marvel recently announced that there will be eight new films between 2020 and 2022. One of them will surely be James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 but we won’t know the official date until after Spider-Man: Far From Home debuts in July and closes out Phase 3.
Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more on Zac Efron, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 and the future of the MCU as we know it.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
