Versions of Adam Warlock’s cocoon have appeared in both Guardians of the Galaxy films and every time I’ve seen them, my skin has crawled, even though the pods are only on the screen for the briefest of moments. Imagine my horror, then, as I gazed upon the high-definition concept art for the monstrosities.
Marvel movies are known for their teasing mid- and post-credits scenes, but with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, they up the ante with five of them after the conclusion of the movie. Some are jokes, but some have huge ramifications for future Marvel movies. Here’s how and why.
Ever since the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie dropped a hint of Marvel’s quantum magic-flinging hero Adam Warlock, fans have wondered when or if he’d ever join his fellow Guardians on the big screen. But now we know that he’s definitely coming, and when to expect him.
