James Gunn Calls Zac Efron Casting Rumors for 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3' Nonsense

The Marvel filmmaker has responded to the internet chatters suggesting he’s looking for ‘a Zac Efron type’ for the upcoming third ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ installment.

Filmmaker James Gunn has dismissed rumours suggesting Zac Efron has been cast as Adam Warlock in the next “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel.

Gold-skinned cosmic character Warlock was introduced in a post-credits scene in 2017’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2“, and is expected to play a major role in the story for the follow-up, which Gunn is expected to begin filming later this year (21).

A questionable report recently emerged online, indicating he was seeking “a thirty year-old Caucasian man, who is described as both a super hero type and a Zac Efron type,” for the part, but the director has shot down the claims.

“There is no casting underway for Vol. 3,” he tweeted in response to the article.

“And in what world would I only cast a ‘Caucasian’ if the character has gold skin? And if I wanted a Zac Efron type wouldn’t I go to Zac Efron? Where do you get this nonsense?”

Gunn’s post tickled celebrity fans Seth Rogen and Josh Gad, who went on to joke about missing out on the gig themselves.

“S**t I was gonna submit myself for the Zac Efron type,” quipped Rogen, who worked with Efron in the “Neighbors” comedy franchise.

And Frozen’s Gad remarked, “This was not the way I wanted to find out I’m out of the running for Adam Warlock.”

The Disney/Marvel blockbuster, fronted by Chris Pratt, is currently set for release in 2023.
