British actor Will Poulter has established himself as one of the great young actors of his generation through his work with many of the best filmmakers in the business. This year will see Will’s MCU debut in James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’, which is set to release globally this May.
Will, next up you’ll be starring in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’, which is premiering this May. How excited were you when you got cast on this film and became a member of the Marvel family?
Really excited!I think in the first instance, I was pretty nervous. As a fan of Guardians, I expected the set to be intimidating and because of the size of the franchise I had built up this idea in my head, but it was really such a lovely surprise and such a welcome realization that it’s truly a lovely, laid back, friendly set. All of the things that I thought would be really intimidating, sort of fell away because everyone was so welcoming. And James Gunn as a director set a really nice tone on set, there was no reason to be scared and it freed us all up to have fun and enjoy the process.
In the film, you’ll play Adam Warlock, a powerful artificial being created by the Sovereign to destroy the Guardians. Tell us more about your character and his story.
It’s kind of hard to talk about anything in relation to the film at this stage, without getting into spoiler territory. But what I can say is that Adam is in his infancy at this stage. You are seeing him having recently emerged from his cocoon and I think it’s fair to say that he emerges underdeveloped in certain respects. He’s quite immature and he’s trying to find his way, orientate himself and craft out what kind of person he is, what side of the line he is on as far as good and bad is concerned. And that was a fun exploration engaging as Adam.continue reading
