Round 2: Adam Warlock in the Marvel Movies

For those that have seen Thor: The Dark World, you may proceed. For those who have not, well, you probably shouldn’t read on unless you want to know the bigger game plan Marvel has for their cinematic universe, and trust me, their plans are pretty huge.

If you’ve seen the film, then you’ve must have seen the end credits sequence as Sif and Volstagg approach Taneleer Tivan, aka The Collector, with the Aether. From here we learn that there are in fact infinity stones in the Marvel Universe and the Aether is one of them, while another (the tesseract) is on Asgard. As the Asgardians maneuver through a cluttered room of strange, exotic artifacts from around the universe, a large bulbous pod looking item in a box is prominent on the screen. My initial thoughts were the Kree’s Supreme Intelligence, due to the bulbous, green, and slimy shape. However, that has a face and this most certain does not have any personified features whatsoever. My bad.

Instead, I’ve found a very interesting rumor, that I didn’t quite buy at first, until I remembered an article I posted on ComicUI {the post is below) several months before. [EDITOR’S NOTE: ComicUI is having server issues at the time of this writing, a link will be appropriated at a later date.] It stated that Adam Warlock would be seen in the Guardians of the Galaxy film, but in a suspended animation state. Anyone familiar with Mr. Warlock, knows he goes through regeneration cycles, much like Doctor Who, but he returns as himself each time. He enters a cocoon like state and comes back better than before. You can see Adam Warlock pictured above with Star-Lord and Nova to the left, with Ronan directly behind him. Adam Warlock is most integral to the Marvel Cosmic Universe, if anyone is.

Upon realizing this, some smart people said that gooey, green, bulbous pod was sporting some holes and tubes that resemble an Adam Warlock pod. Say what?! That’s pretty hardcore detecting right there. Very impressive indeed. Putting that theory along with my theory from several months ago, I’m really starting to think that Warlock is going to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe much sooner than later. After all, he has been known to merge with the Infinity Stone known as Soul. We could be seeing an all out Infinity Gauntlet story over the next several years after all.

Adam Warlock is a Cocoon?

Original ComicUI Post

Adam Warlock has been a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy for a while now, except in the most recent Marvel NOW! series. He is most known throughout the Infinity Gauntlet series as someone who possesses one of the infinity gems, mind. Through this [soul] gem, he can pull people into it and essentially save their lives in harmful situations or create illusions in which they will live. This was very apparent in his appearance in Earth’s Mightiest Heroes along the other Guardians.

His removal from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film had left many a bit irate and not in the right state of…mind. However, recent rumor is to be believed (and something tells me to be very wary of this) we may be getting a glimpse at the man who is to be Warlock. We may not get him in action, but perhaps a glimpse at him in suspended animation. A tease at best, but better than nothing.

Take a look at the tweets below and let us know if you want to see Adam Warlock appear in the film.
