Gunn started joking about the new villain character Iwuji and that Poulter will play Adam Warlock in the film, and star Pratt has high hopes for the film, recently calling it “a real masterpiece.” With these teasers, MCU fans can begin to piece together what might be in Guardians of the Galaxy. 3, even before the plot synopsis was released. The sequel may not have Thor, but it still has a vibrant cast of new and returning characters to delight viewers with what should be an emotional story.
