It is only a matter of time before Kevin Feige announces the casting of Adam Warlock. Major plot and cast spoilers where announced last week when the casting call went out for Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1.
Acting Auditions posted a casting call for Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 that reveals the plot to the movie and characters to be cast.
Auditions are now getting underway for the Marvel Studios feature film ‘Avengers: Infinity War – Part I’ lead and supporting roles. The auditions for new lead and supporting roles will be taking place in Los Angeles, CA. The film is the first in a two-part sequel in which Thanos plays a major role, along with the Magus. Adam Warlock’s bad side, the Magus, separates from his body and assembles the Infinity Gauntlet. Magus creates doppelgangers of Earth’s heroes as part of his plan to recreate a universe of evil. “Avengers: Infinity War – Part I” will be shot entirely on the IMAX/ARRI 2D digital camera.
Do you think that this spoils the film for you?
Who would you cast as Adam Warlock and Magus?
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 comes out May 5, 2017 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 comes out on May 4, 2018.
There have been three incarnations of the Magus.
The original Magus is an older, evil Adam Warlock who has traveled to the past and rules a religious empire called the Universal Church of Truth. To ensure his own creation, he guides his younger self through a series of actions that will result in him becoming the Magus. With the aid of Thanos, Warlock alters his future and destroys the Magus’s timeline, erasing him from existence.
When Warlock acquires the Infinity Gauntlet, he expels good and evil from his soul, unintentionally giving them corporeal forms. The evil half names himself the Magus and attempts to gain the Infinity Gauntlet for himself. He fails, and Warlock traps him in the Soul Gem. Since he is only part of a soul, he cannot interact with the other inhabitants of Soul World and exists only as a phantom. The Magus escapes the Soul Gem in an immaterial form, absorbing the life energies of others to regain tangibility. He is defeated by Genis-Vell and reverts to an ethereal entity. The Magus retaliates by wounding Genis’ friend Moondragon and claiming she is destined to become his slave.
Warlock becomes the third Magus when he repairs a damage to the spacetime continuum. This Magus works for the evil Lord Mar-Vell, and is killed when he fails a mission. The Universal Church of Truth resurrects him as a child, who is then imprisoned by the Annihilators.
