Who is ‘that guy with the eyebrows’ set to play Adam Warlock in GOTG3?

Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed yesterday (Monday, 11 October) that in the upcoming third instalment, Will Poulter will join the cast as Adam Warlock.

Following his casting, fans have been using the phrase “that guy with the eyebrows” to describe Poulter:

The actor previously addressed his unique facial feature on Twitter after a fan noticed the Google search ‘weird eyebrow actor’ resulted in a profile on Poulter.

Responding in 2016, Poulter wrote: “Am I the ‘weird eyebrow actor?’ Don’t quite know how to answer this one #EyebrowActing #Weird #FoundMyNiche.”

In an interview with The Times in the same year, Poulter admitted people know him more for his eyebrows than his work onscreen.
