It’s been a few years since we’ve had a new Guardians of the Galaxy film, and that’s just one of the many reasons to be excited for the next entry in the Guardians trilogy. One of the other reasons so many fans are hyped for the new film is that it will finally introduce Adam Warlock to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character is definitely a favorite from the Marvel comic books on which the films are based, and it’s about time he had his time on the big screen. It was previously rumored that the character would have already appeared in the MCU elsewhere, but he just never had the opportunity. Now Will Poulter will be portraying Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and fans believe he might’ve just revealed the new hairstyle for his character.
Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, fans believe that a recent photo of Will Poulter accidentally gave away the Adam Warlock hairstyle he’ll be sporting in the new MCU film. After all, the character is best known for his blonde hair in the comics – and it’s clear that Will Poulter is mirroring the same look in said recent photo.
As you can see below:

The photo was shared for Will Poulter’s effort to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s research. So it isn’t exactly the kind of Guardians tie-in that fans were expecting now that production on the upcoming film has commenced. But given the timing, it definitely seems certain that Will Poulter will be sporting this kind of hairstyle – if not something very similar – for Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is being both written and directed by James Gunn, who handled the previous two films in the trilogy.
Aside from the aforementioned Will Poulter, the new film will also star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is scheduled for a May 5, 2023 release date.
