Ever since Thor: The Dark World’s post-credits scene, fans have been expecting Warlock to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In the movie, however, the genetically engineered character won’t have the same origin story as he does in the comics.
In publications, Ayesha is the female version of Warlock. In Gunn’s production, on the other hand, Warlock is created by the character, who is the leader of the alien race known as the Sovereign. She gives life to the villain so that he can destroy the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Still about the antagonist, in an interview with Empire, Gunn, who is now the new head of DC studios, spoke a little more about the character and explained how he sees him within the narrative. “He’s definitely not a good guy. What we’re looking at is the baby version of Warlock, fresh out of his cocoon, and he doesn’t understand life very well. He’s basically a baby,” he revealed.
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has in its main cast Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, in addition to the aforementioned Will Poulter, who joins the saga.
The film is part of phase 5 of the MCU, which will begin with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which hits the big screen on February 17, 2023.
