Will Poulter in His Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Role
Will Poulter admitted playing Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is a big challenge.
In an interview with The Independent, he revealed he started by getting into shape for his role.
“I wouldn’t recommend anyone do what I did to get ready for that job,” he said.
Aside from being a gym rat today, he also follows what he calls “a very, very specific diet.” He described his diet as including “quantities of food you wouldn’t necessarily want to ingest. And other times not enough food.”
However, outside the preparations, the 29-year-old actor can’t say much about his character.
“It’s difficult talking about it because with Marvel it’s all secret squirrel…but the most important thing is that your mental and physical health has to be number one,” he explained.
The physical goal only comes secondary for the British star. If not, he stressed, “you end up promoting something that is unhealthy and unrealistic if you don’t have the financial backing of a studio paying for your meals and training.”
Who is Will Poulter’s Character, Adam Warlock?
Den of Geek noted that Will Poulter’s fitness regimen and concern for other people align with his Marvel character Adam Warlock.
The hero was first seen in the 1967 Fantastic Four by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. He was first introduced as Him, the perfect being created by the group of researchers.
However, the character started to come to his own after being handled by the writer Jim Starlin, who named Adam Warlock and made him a galactic messiah who wandered around space to look for inner peace.
He, too, became the keeper of the Soul Gem, the first of the Infinity Gems, and was often pitted against Thanos.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to be out in 2023.
