Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is just a few weeks away, and there are still some things we don’t know. Although we found out the identity of Sylvester Stallone’s character earlier this week, it remains a mystery as to who Michael Rosenbaum is playing. However, the actor himself has given a few clues as to his role during the red carpet premiere of the film last night.
“Well, I’m in the movie, and I can’t really say the role I’m playing because James Gunn swore me to secrecy,” said Rosenbaum. “But it’s with Stallone, and it’s an important role. I’m not allowed to say anything other than that. I can’t wait to see it, I haven’t seen it, and I’ve been waiting a year to be able to say something. So it’s really exciting, I’m really excited. The fans are awesome. This is incredible. So I’m going to see it for the first time, too. I’m not going to tell you what I look like, either. You’re just going to have to see the movie. I don’t have to shave my head again, so that’s good.”
While still not much to go on, there are a few things here. We know that he is with Stallone in the movie, and that it seems that this is a role that James Gunn really wants to keep secret. Which means that the character in question will likely be an exciting reveal. The mind continues to go wild. Who do you think he’s playing? Let us know!
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

Yesterday after Michael went live on his Facebook he made a request in the comments:
“also i hear that the lower (closer to number 1) your imdb number is the better the actor you are.. hahhahhahahhaha. SO go to imdb.com and type my name in and go to link and i’ll be up for an oscar next year. haha. but i want to see if it actually works. Christina shaw, joy ann jones, chris aaron, maggie, beverly, etc… let’s do this. come on folks. takes a second. i have to see if this shit matters. lord.”
So as his loyal fans I ask you all to please help Michael achieve his dream of finding out if ‘this shit matters’
So yesterday I came online to a punch in the stomach…one of my favourite TV shows I have supported since it started and promoted as much as a fan can has been cancelled. I should be used to this after Firefly, Dollhouse, True Calling, Breaking In….and far too many to count. It seems like TV shows have 2 seasons tops and if they are not the top of the toppest they are cancelled and forgotten.
TV companies themselves say how hard it is to make quality TV and yet when they get gems like Impastor they do not give the writers time to explore the characters and they are deleted just as we the fans are getting to know the characters.
I know to TVland and these companies these shows are nothing but a chance to make money, but to us they are a chance to see our favourite actors on screen, a chance to make friends with other fans, a chance to make fanart or to write about our favourite characters. For me this was something I promoted so much I love Michael Rosenbaum (obviously) and I support him. But I came to love these characters, seeing the bloopers and the live facebook chats with Michael singing and it was a little light in my life and now I feel really sad that this is gone.
Now fans are calling to boycott the channel, a petition has been started and I beg you all to please SIGN HERE share this everywhere and tell everyone! We the fans need to show this channel that we will not let this amazing show be forgotten! And TVland please listen and give this a chance? Let us have this amazing show, get it up online, sell it to other countries, get some merchandise going and lets make this amazing
The cancellation — while not entirely surprising, given the show’s declining ratings — is sure to be a gut punch to devoted fans. Last week’s season series finale left Buddy standing over the dead body of Alexa’s husband, whom she killed before revealing that she’s basically been playing Buddy this whole time. (Season 3 could have been a real cat-and-mouse adventure, but sadly, we’ll never know.)
