A few days ago saw all those rumors hit the net, with it again mentioned that Zac Efron is being eyed for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
Now a cool piece of fan art has hit the net which just might offer that Zac Efron might not be a bad choice to play the character as we can assume obviously James Gunn will be going a different approach than the comics (Kevin Feige could have gone with an Adam Warlock movie after Infinity War and prior to Avengers: Endgame, which would have made sense, but instead he went with the less than stellar shoed-in Brie Larson Captain Marvel).
The rumors have it that the High Evolutionary might be involved with Guardians of the Galaxy 3, so maybe the High Evolutionary is responsible for creating Adam (I'm thinking Gunn may drop the "Warlock" part of the name) as it is rumored the High Evolutionary is responsible for creating Rocket Raccoon and possibly other characters, maybe even Beta Ray Bill who is also rumored for the flick.
Zac Efron has actually been rumored to be a part of the MCU for years, with at one time some fans thinking possibly as Nova. I'd be surprised if Zac Efron ended up playing Nova myself, but I would at least be open to the possibility. Regardless of which character Zac Efron ends up playing in the MCU, hopefully, it's done well.
James Gunn starts filming on Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after he is finished with DC's The Suicide Squad. Marvel Studios is expected to announce their Phase 4 release dates this Summer. It's also thought Chris Hemsworth will be a part of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and further Phase 4 MCU movies.
