Guardians Of The Galaxy Actor Says They Cut A Lot Of His Scenes

Michael Rosenbaum said the editors "cut a lot out."


Actor Michael Rosenbaum played the character Martinex, a small supporting part in all three Guardians of the Galaxy films. He is now saying his character was supposed to play a bigger role in the franchise.

Speaking at Nashville Comic Con, Rosenbaum said his role was "supposed to be a lot bigger," according to The Hollywood Reporter. He added that the editors "cut a lot out."

"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 ended up cutting it out at the end. And there was some other stuff," he said.

Rosenbaum isn't too bothered by having his role scaled back, however. He said he had a good time making the movies and he feels grateful for the experience.

"For me, it's like, I'm working 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," he said.

Rosenbaum is most famous in the superhero world for playing Lex Luthor on Smallville. Regarding choices made in the editing room, it's a common practice for changes big and small to be made by editors, for a number of possible reasons.

As for the Guardians series, 2023's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was billed as the last entry in the franchise for the foreseeable future, though the end credits did note that Chris Pratt's Star-Lord will return. Writer-director James Gunn is now the co-head of DC Studios.
