Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Easter-Eggs and References

Guardians of the Galaxy

Prior to the movie's release, rumor had it that Smallville’s Michael Rosenbaum would have an important role in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2.  According to the rumor, the actor would play Quasar, a powerful cosmic superhero. James Gunn was not the only one to tease this character; we also heard this from the numerous journalists who visited the set. Michael Rosenbaum himself said that his character would be an important one.

As it turned out, Rosenbaum had just a very minor cameo as Martinex. This was still cool, though, since Martinex is one of the original Guardians of the Galaxy member from the comics.

Martinex was joined by Ving Rhames’ Charlie-27, Michelle Yeoh’s Aleta Ogrod, Krugarr, and a Miley Cyrus-voiced Mainframe.
