Marvel Didn’t Want Adam Warlock To Get A GOTG Vol. 2 Post-Credit Sequence

Turning Ayesha (Elizabeth Debecki)into one of Guardians of the GalaxyVol. 2's villains might have naturally implied the appearance of Adam Warlock in James Gunn's cosmic superhero sequel, however it turns out the director had to fight to keep the character's post-credit's scene.

Speaking in an interview with Cinemablend, the director reveals how Marvel had a lot of concerns with the appearance of the Adam Warlock cocoon in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

"I had to fight for Adam in the post-credits sequence. Because I really thought that's where that should go. And I thought one of the main reasons to have the Sovereign in the movie was to give audiences the hint that Adam Warlock is coming. That was one of the reasons for them to exist. And I wrote that post-credits sequence in the first draft of the script.


And then there were a lot of questions about whether or not we should put that in there because people were going to expect Adam Warlock in Infinity War, so one of the things I promised -- which I do all of the time on Twitter -- is letting everyone know that Adam Warlock is not going to be in Avengers 3 or Avengers 4. It's just not going to happen. Because I didn't want people to have false expectations of what they thought was going to happen with Adam."

It's pretty understandable that fans would misread a Adam Warlock end credit scene for an Infinity War teaser – after all, the character did play a major part in the Infinity Gauntlet comic event back in the 90s. While Warlock will most definitely be in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it's such a shame that the character won't be one of the 60 Marvel heroes fighting the Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Marvel's two-part Avengers movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will see its digital release tomorrow, August 8 and then the movie will have its Blu-Ray/DVD release a few weeks after on August 22.
