Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is smashing box office records both locally and internationally. One of the five post-credit scenes had Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) sitting in front of a cocoon. Going onto state to one of her assistant’s that the being inside will be named “Adam”. Which is obviously a reference to Adam Warlock finally entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While Adam Warlock had a massive presence in the comics during the Infinity Gauntlet story line. Director James Gunn in a recent Facebook live video revealed that Adam Warlock will not be debuting in Infinity War, unfortunately:
Adam Warlock will not be in Infinity War … he will have a future in the MCU. But will it be in Infinity War? It will not.
Expect Adam Warlock, however, to debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
