With more than a year for the release, One Guardians of the Galaxy star talks about Marvel’s rigorous training and diet.
Will Poulter who plays Adam Warlock opens up about his own transformation for GOTG Volume 3.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Poulter said, “It's difficult talking about it because with Marvel it's all secret squirrel.”
He added, “But the most important thing is that your mental and physical health has to be number one, and the aesthetic goals have to be secondary, otherwise you end up promoting something that is unhealthy and unrealistic if you don't have the financial backing of a studio paying for your meals and training.”
He also said, “I'm in a very privileged position in that respect, and I wouldn't recommend anyone do what I did to get ready for that job.”
Talking about the diet, The actor has other thoughts on it.
Poulter said, “I've gone through a series of different diets over the last few months. Now I'm in a maintenance phase, which is quite nice.”
He added, “I'm not eating copious amounts of food to bulk, and I'm not cutting. I'm just maintaining my weight.”
He also said, “I've gone through periods of looking at food and feeling like I can't face it, and then you blink and the next minute you're ready to eat furniture because you're so hungry.”
Anyway, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 is set to release on May 5, 2023.
