Adam Warlock is one of the pivotal characters in the "Infinity Gauntlet" saga from the comics. His arrival in the MCU has long been teased and anticipated by fans and with Phase 4 already upon us, it looks like the character is well on its way to make a major impact in the shared universe. Better late than never, right?
Fans are split over the rumored casting choice. Some like the idea while others are furious over the High School Musical star coming to the MCU.
