In the comics, Adam Warlock is essentially an artificially-created perfect human, and “Bridgerton” fans would no doubt agree that Rege-Jean Page, who plays the Duke of Hastings in the show, would be a pretty good choice for such a role. Indeed, Hollywood Reporter writer Borys Kit has revealed on Twitter that Page was in the running for the role, as well as George Mackay of “1917” and “Captain Fantastic” fame.
“Since at least August, it’s been the role ‘every one wants’,” Kit wrote about the casting process for Adam Warlock. “At least for young male Hollywood, which read and met on it. Rege-Jean Page was considered for it, 1917’s George MacKay was on the shortlist.”
While Kit doesn’t name any names beyond Page and MacKay, the tweet makes clear that Will Poulter was up against plenty of serious talent in the casting process. Considering that he landed out on top, it’s probably safe to assume that he’ll absolutely rock the role.
