Michael Rosenbaum seemingly confirms his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 return as Martinex for James Gunn's Marvel Cinematic Universe trilogy finale.

As new cast members continue to be slowly revealed, Michael Rosenbaum has seemingly confirmed his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 return. The Smallville alum made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as Martinex T'Naga, a member of the Ravagers working under Sylvester Stallone's Stakar Ogord. When the two learn of Michael Rooker's Yondu having sacrificed himself to save Chris Pratt's Peter Quill, they reunite with their former teammates, Ving Rhames' Charlie-27, Michelle Yeoh's Aleta Ogord and Miley Cyrus' Mainframe, to rebuild their team.


Exact plot details for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 have been kept largely under wraps, though the film is said to explore Rocket Raccoon's origins, the fallout between the Guardians and the Sovereign leading to the creation of Will Poulter's Adam Warlock and the threat of Chukwudi Iwuji's High Evolutionary. James Gunn has assembled an ensemble cast of MCU vets and newcomers, including Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldaña, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Karen Gillan and Maria Bakalova. Despite an already star-studded roster, it appears another familiar face will be returning for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Less than a month after the first footage was screened at San Diego Comic-Con, Michael Rosenbaum took to Twitter to seemingly confirm his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 return. The actor teased whether those in attendance noticed a "certain crystal Ravager" appearing for a quick second in the SDCC trailer while tagging the Gunn brothers, Marvel and Sylvester Stallone.

Given the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer has yet to be released publicly by Marvel or Gunn, with the latter citing ongoing work on the visual effects as the reason behind it, only those who saw the footage at SDCC would know for sure whether Rosenbaum is indeed returning for the threequel. While Marvel and Gunn haven't technically confirmed Rosenbaum's casting, the director did like the actor's social media post, potentially indicating the Smallville actor will be reprising his role as Martinex. Additionally, with Sylvester Stallone's Stakar already confirmed to be returning for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the door does seem open for Rosenbaum to make an appearance in the film.

With Stallone and potentially now Rosenbaum confirmed to be returning for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it will be interesting to see if the rest of the original comics Guardians team will appear in the film. Given the MCU threequel is expected to be the final installment in Gunn's trilogy as well as Bautista's final Drax appearance and Pratt seemingly indicating no official plans for his return, Rosenbaum and Stallone's returns could point towards theories of Gunn's Guardians team meeting their emotional ends in the upcoming film being true. Only time will tell when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits theaters on May 5, 2023.
