Things don’t always go the way you want. And James Gunn felt extraordinarily pressured by Marvel to do something he didn’t want to do.
James Gunn was forced to do something he didn’t want to do in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Speaking to io9, the director of Marvel Studios has analyzed the debut of Adam Warlock in the third film of the cosmic trilogy. A debut that took place after being announced in the post-credit scene of the second installment.
when asked Which aspect of Guardians of the Galaxy 3’s story was the hardest to tackle, James Gunn, without hesitation, replied that it was the inclusion of Adam Warlock in the story. “Well, I don’t have any,” the filmmaker began to say. “The hardest thing was Adam Warlock. Really, it was really difficult. I promised that we would see Adam Warlock at the end of the second movie. The High Evolutionary has created the species of Adam. That was the way we developed the idea.”
The narrative complications generated by Adam Warlock
“But definitely everything else was very complicated,” he continued to explain. James Gunn on Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. “The High Evolutionary is directly related to Rocket. Everything is directly related to him. So it was the thing that was furthest apart that we put back into it. Except we had also teased Ayesha in the second movie, so we had all of that. But it was definitely the hardest part to integrate.”
“I think I felt pressured to put Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy 3,” James Gunn finally admitted. “A lot of the stuff was written for Vol. 2. Originally, Adam Warlock was on Vol. 2 and he was kind of the opposing force. It seems that I always have a second force, right? For example, in the first movie Yondu serves that position. He is an alternate force. And in the second movie, Ayesha serves that position. In this movie, it’s Adam and Ayesha together. So I always had the character in mind from that movie and then he seemed to fit better in this movie than he did in that movie.”
