Post-SDCC announcement, Collider caught up with Chuk Iwuji on the sociopathic but charming High Evolutionary in Guardians 3. If you follow LRM regularly you likely knew Iwuji was playing the High Evolutionary in Guardians 3 for some time. However the role was officially announced at SDCC this year. You can see a shot of Iwuji in costume from the announcement below.
Without spoiling anything, Iwuji was able to talk a little more about his version of this classic Marvel Comics character. Iwuji was asked by Collider is he’s playing a shady dude?

“Shady doesn’t touch it. He is narcissistic, sociopathic, but very charming. I couldn’t have thought of a better character that uses [a] skill set better to join the MCU with. Because there’s something very Shakespearean about him, there’s something very emotionally dark about him, and he’s a lot of fun on top of all that. The costume like you mentioned, the day I put on that costume, because he looks very different from how he is in the comics, but the costume just worked. There’s something about putting it on, which I’m glad you mentioned because a big part of my performance was that costume.”
Iwugi then went on the talk about working with the cast and being part of that family.
“It was wonderful because they were all very welcoming. Everyone was excited for the new cast members like Will [Poulter] and myself joining, and you also know you’re coming into something that’s proven to be brilliant. And you’re like, “I want to do my part to make sure this keeps going well,” because you know it’s such a beloved cast. I felt nothing but warmth and support, and the fact that James chose me to do it was all the confidence I needed, because like we’ve said he could have had anyone and he chose me for it. So I was like, I’m not gonna let you down.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits theaters in May 2023. Now we just await some more CGI work to be completed. Then hopefully those of us not at SDCC will get to see the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
