New York, NY— March 13, 2023 — It’s an exciting year for fans of Marvel Comics’ greatest cosmic heroes! In addition to the launch of an all-new comics run of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY by Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing, and Kev Walker this April, the team will also star in their latest Marvel Cinematic Universe outing, Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The highly-anticipated film will feature the live-action debut of ADAM WARLOCK. One of the most iconic Marvel Comics characters yet to make the leap to film, Adam Warlock will be played by actor Will Poulter, and fans can see him in action in an all-new variant cover for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1. This special, one-of-a-kind comic book cover uses a photo still from the upcoming film and will be available just before the movie hits theaters.
In Marvel comics, the character of Adam Warlock is among the most powerful and fascinating beings of the Marvel Universe. Created by scientists on earth to be the “perfect man,” he took to space where he became a protector of the Infinity Stones and played pivotal roles in classic sagas like Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity Watch. Fans everywhere are sure to fall in love with him all over again when he makes his way to the big screen later this year!
