Michael Rosenbaum Says His Role of Martinex in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 Was Originally Much Larger

A very interesting revelation occurred in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 it was when we were introduced to the Ravagers that Yondu ran with.

It turned out that the group was actually made up of the classic Guardians lineup from the comics. They only appeared in a couple of scenes in vol. 2 AND vol. 3but it turns out they actually had a lot more to do in the original script.

Michael Rosenbaumfriend of the director James Gunn from those we know best Smallvillehe appeared in both films as Martinex, one of the original Guardians characters from the comics.

During a panel at Nashville Comicon over the weekend, Rosenbaum revealed that Martinex should have had a lot more screen time in vol. 2but eventually the role of his band of Ravagers was reduced.

Comicbook reports that Rosenbaum explained:

“I mean, the role should have been much bigger. They cut a lot. Well, you should have seen, it was written in the script to see Martinex’s powers, which were really cool.

But they had so much to talk about in the script that they ultimately decided to cut it. And there were other things.

But it was fun. For me it’s like I work with my friends, I get paid, I’m in a big Marvel movie, life could suck worse. You know what I mean? I’m very grateful.”

Rosenbaum’s Martinex was joined by Sylvester Stallone in the role of Stakar Ogord, Ving Rames like Charlie-27, and Michelle Yeoh as Aleta Ogord. Miley Cyrus provided the voice for the character Mainfraime.

It’s a shame that their full story and powers weren’t fully realized in the film, but Gunn is a thoughtful director and good editing makes a good film.

Maybe those scenes will one day be released for fans to enjoy for themselves.
