The Guardians of Galaxy 2: An emblematic character unveiled in a post-generic scene, what consequences for the MCU?

Cinema 26 April, 2017

One of the post-generic scenes of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 tease the coming arrival of a character emblematic of the comics. The kind that could upset the MCU!
And the gang is back ! After three years of waiting, here our band of marginalized of the favorite space is back. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, with its lot of emotions and adventure, arrives today on our screens. And, as we suspected, the film does not do things by halves! Besides, to be a little different from other Marvel productions, it offers no less than … five post-generic scenes . Yes, five. What keep our interest awake throughout the credits, right? And all, to some degree, give us some little clues about what we could see in the sequel, whether in The Avengers: Infinity War or The Guardians of the Galaxy . But among these five scenes, There is ONE that will return you more than the others . And no, we do not talk about the one with Groot – even if it’s still pretty cool. The editing of melty wants to talk about this sequence in which we find a certain nasty face to a certain object and which involves sacred consequences. Well, as much to tell you right away that it will spoiler serious in the sequel …
If you’ve ever seen what the different post-generic scenes of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 are , you know what this is all about. For the villain in question is Ayesha, and the object she contemplates is none other than the cocoon of Adam Warlock . Yes, this same Adam Warlock, major character of the comics Marvel, that we have a time all seen in the role of the father of Star Lord (to know why). WOOT! James Gunn confirmed last week that the superhero was originally supposed to appear in the film and had to play an important role. Before finally being scratched from the script, simply because its introduction took up too much space in a film already crammed with major interactions between the characters. And then it’s Adam Warlock, It deserves better than being presented in three words . As a result, the director found another way to teaser his presence: in the post-generic scene of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 . History to make fans of the MCU completely crazy, obviously. But what could be the consequences of the arrival of Adam Warlock in the film world of Marvel?
In fact, they are quite numerous. Because obviously, the first thing that comes to mind is that Adam could land like a flower in The Avengers: Infinity War. Now, the timeline of the latter has been unveiled and it is now known that it actually takes place 4 years after the events of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 . Now, who is the REAL hero of the comic book ” The Glove of the Infinite ” that inspires the third film Avengers ? You are given it in a thousand: Adam himself. Or in any case, it is he who manages to snatch the Gant out of Thanos and put things back in order, god-like . As a result, One comes to think that the superhero could indeed come to spin a helping hand to our Avengers during their fight against the Crazy Titan . Except that … Except that James Gunn has always shown a certain independence from the MCU. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 does not make any connection with the Stones of the Infinite, as James Gunn himself has repeated throughout his production. So no, unfortunately, it would seem that Adam Warlock will not be in The Avengers: Infinity War , an information that the director himself unveiled during an interview for the site / Film. ” He’s not in Infinity War ,” he said. Well, very good.
If Adam Warlock is introduced at the end of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 , it is probably because he will have a role to play in his sequel. But which one? This is a bit difficult to say. Already because a long enough period of time will separate the two films – at least four years, then. Then, because we still have to take into account the events of The Avengers: Infinity War , which are still unknown to us. Will they have an impact on Adam’s gestation? What changes will they make in our Guardians, changes that could affect their perception of this super-powerful artificial being? Finally, it should not be forgotten that there will also be The Avengers 4 , which must come out during Phase 4 of the MCU. This will also be the case of the film The Guardians of the Galaxy 3 – at least if one believes the words of Kevin Feige. Does this mean that Adam Warlock could eventually take part in the fight against Thanos, as many fans hope? It would in any case be a good way to integrate it directly into the MCU, while reserving a role for him in the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 .
But we can also imagine a new theory: and if Adam actually collided … the role of the villain in The Guardians of the Galaxy 3 ? After all, it is in the hands of Ayesha and we know what kind of Warlock monster gives birth in the comics: Magus, or the Mage, who is none other than his future incarnation . And there, we would know immediately who would pose as the real villain of the film, unlike what happens in The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (spoiler alert)! And even without thinking of the Magus at once, the idea that he would have a connection with Ayesha would almost be enough to convince us that the golden superhero could, at least initially, take on the role of an enemy of the Guardians. In short, as you can see, The introduction of Adam Warlock into the MCU brings a whole bunch of possibilities. And unfortunately, it will obviously wait a while before knowing what real impact it will have on the MCU. Finally, with all the films stamped Marvel to come, we will have plenty of what to hold by then! In your opinion, what will be the future role of Adam?
