“I’m Perfecting It” Scene | GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 3 (NEW 2023) Movie CLIP 4K

Iwuji notably played Murn in Season 1 of Peacemaker, where his character was ultimately revealed to be a hero. As much as he enjoys saving the day, he—like many actors—has a lot more fun being the bad guy.


“I really enjoyed playing someone so far away from who I actually am. Sometimes that’s easier to play and I think that’s often what makes villains so much fun,” he said. “They’re usually further away from who the actor is as a person, than the more heroic characters.”

With the MCU exploring the multiverse, there’s always a chance Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 may not be the only version of the High Evolutionary we get to see. However, the actor isn’t necessarily interested in a softer, more reasonable variant of the character.

“Would I be interested in seeing it as an actor? I would because it’d be wonderful to play something very different. It’s really juicy to explore that,” he said. “Do I think we need to see that about the High Evolutionary? I think it might be nice to just have someone who’s a real villain for a while and see where that takes us.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is now playing in theaters.
