GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 Star Will Poulter Addresses STAR WARS Cal Kestis Casting Rumors

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 star Will Poulter has addressed fans suggesting he play Cal Kestis in a future Star Wars project, while also opening up on his MCU future as the cosmic hero Adam Warlock...

The Jedi: Fallen Order video game was a bigger hit than anyone expected, and the story of young Jedi Cal Kestis was one that fans instantly responded to. As a result, the character has become a real fan favourite, with the hope being that he will eventually appear in a live-action project.

Cal's story will continue in next year's Jedi: Survivor, with Gotham alum Cameron Monaghan reprising the role. In recent years, we've seen actors who have lent their voices to characters in animation bring them into a live-action setting (Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze), while others have been replaced (Rosario Dawson took over as Ahsoka Tano from Ashley Eckstein). 

While there continue to be rumours online that Gotham alum Cameron Monaghan will bring his video game protagonist to the big or small screen, could another actor beat him to it? 

Talking on The Movie Dweeb, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 star Will Poulter was asked about potentially travelling to a Galaxy Far, Far Away. The hosts mentioned that he's a popular suggestion to play Cal given the physical similarities between them, and there's no denying that he's a bigger star than Monaghan. 

While he's not familiar with the character or game, Poulter responded: "I definitely would not say no. I mean I was a huge Star Wars fan as a kid. I can remember wearing like a brown bathrobe and getting a lightsaber, made out of a neon-painted cardboard wrapping paper tube."

Something tells us Star Wars fans wouldn't be happy with Monaghan being replaced, and Poulter does have a cosmic future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Adam Warlock. Asked if he hopes to keep returning to that role for years to come, he said, "I really hope so, dude. You know, I don't honestly know what the plan is, I mean that is, hand on heart, you know the truth."

We'll see what happens, but there are a number of upcoming Star Wars projects we could see Cal Kestis in over the next few years. Whether that's planned remains to be seen. 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to be released in theaters on May 5, 2023.
