Are you saying Captain Marvel ISN'T stunning and brave?

On the contrary. She's the most stunningest and most bravest-est one there IS, WAS AND EVER WILL BE.

True, and I suppose the MCU only has room for one All-Powerful, Most Perfect, Infallible, Bestest Evah Space Messiah and that title has already been taken by a certain wooden faced, monotone, self-inflated goddess and no toxic Dude is gonna wrestle that title from her brave and stunning unbreakable grip.

Or the Guardians end up saving the day, but everyone else thinks it was Warlock who is so delusionally narcissistic (sort of a cosmic Barney Fife), he believes it himself.

. . . until he figures out he's the "perfect" being and reaches his full potential just in time to save the day in the end.

That just screams the kind of "Comedic Twist" Gunn would pull out of his butt for one of these movies.

Count on it. I'm betting, as the Sovereign have been so inept at killing the GOTG to this point, he's gonna end up being some kind of naive , goofy, bumbling, Frankenstein-type failure of an experiment that's pretty much the punchline of the entire movie until he figures out he's the "perfect" being and reaches his full potential just in time to save the day in the end. And now that the Multiverse will have been blown wide open by the time this movie releases, don't be surprised if there is some kind of tie-in with the Infinity Stones or the Infinity Watch from another universe.

As far as Poulter himself, sure we all know him as Kenny from We Are the Millers, and his roles have been pretty limited in the other projects he's been in, but if what Michael Keaton has said about his acting chops is any indication he might have a bit more range than we realize. Also, if the Hollywood trainers could physically change pudgy Andy to Alpha Male Starlord I'm sure they could pack some muscle onto this kids tall frame to make him look a little more "ideal" for Adam Warlock.

that may sound weird but I thought Adam was a "Perfect Specimen" of the species.

This guy does not look it to me.

I think that may be the whole point.

This whole thing is starting to remind me of an old X-Files episode (which in turn ripped off it's plot from a Superboy episode). The agents run into a female super-soldier developed in an experiment to create the perfect human weapon. The joke is, instead of a perfect physical specimen, the woman is slightly over-weight and plain looking.

That just screams the kind of "Comedic Twist" Gunn would pull out of his butt for one of these movies.

Glad this plot point isn't getting dropped.... But also I get the concern. Adam is a complicated character.

His looks don't bother me - its actually kind of refreshing that marvel didn't cast a handsome jock type in the role . I'm more concerned about Warlock being overly comedic or used as the butt of everyone's jokes, but that would be a concern regardless of who was cast.

Bro....I literally just told me wife the exact same thing just now, lol. Yeah, this is really the only time I didn't like a casting choice. I both expected and much preferred an actor who looked....well, a lot more impressive looking.

Yeah funny enough like a few moments ago my GF made the same comments Ha!, and she said did you hear the guy from Midsommar and Maze Runner with that funny face is Adam Warlock, she was mad, seems like it's a universal thing you either love this kid or not, but hey I'm still respecting Marvel for their decision they have not let me down yet, but I have not been so astonished with how much out the gate I don't like a casting decision they made, Adam Warlock is supposed to be a engineered perfect specimen and is a serious character, should have had Zac Efron (which that pic up in the top is rendered off of, it seems) as him, at least that would have made sense, but whatever I will reserve the full judgement for when I actually see the performance.

I don't like this casting, I really don't enjoy this actor very much, I kinda hate his face, I know it's kinda a stupid statement, but I'm worried about this casting, but I mean Marvel hasn't let me down yet with choosing actors/actresses, even with the weirdest choices, but this kid really doesn't scream Adam Warlock to me in the slightest.
