Now you might be very excited to see our beloved John Wick and Matrix star Keanu Reeves in upcoming James Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy 3 as the mighty Adam Warlock. But the question is is this actually true or not.
So first, before we get started, we need to give a background of Adam Warlock in MCU. Adam Warlock was first introduced at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in its post-credit scene. After Peter Quill aka Starlord and his team defeat his dad Ego the living planet, we get a post-credit scene where we see Ayesha planning and making a superior being that she will use to destroy the Guardians. She names him Adam. And this was our first and only tease of the character.
Many fans speculated that Adam Warlock would make an appearance in the Avengers Infinity War. However, that theory was quickly debunked. But now another rumor is popping out that Marvel is eyeing Keanu Reeves to play Adam Warlock.
Keanu Reeves is a veteran actor in the Hollywood who was notable for his role in the Matrix franchise and Speed. However, he has a very rough year in the last two decade where he wasn’t seen in much. But that quickly changed when he starred in John Wick and overnight he took back the title of being an Action Hero.
And many people are speculating that keeping in mind Keanu Reeves’ John Wick success James Gunn might be trying to cast him as Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. But if we look at this rumor objectively, there are no officials reports that confirm that Keanu Reeves is being cast as Adam Warlock. So this might be bad news for many people, but we have some good news for you.
Instead of Adam Warlock, there is news floating around that Keanu Reeves is being cast as Namor in his upcoming Debut movie in MCU’s Phase 4.
