James Gunn has revealed that Smallville actor Michael Rosenbaum will play a significant role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (out May 5). Gunn also teased the characters played by both Rosenbaum and Sylvester Stallone. The director made the announcement during an appearance on The Adam Carolla Show podcast.
“We do have a couple of characters who are very important to the Marvel universe, who are going to make their debut in Guardians Vol. 2, that people don’t know about,” said Gunn. “And Sylvester Stallone plays one of these characters… But I will say that my friend Michael Rosenbaum also has a pretty decent role in the movie as well and it sort of works in tandem with Sly’s character.”
Rosenbaum subsequently tweeted about Gunn’s announcement. “I kept yapper shut 4 a year but can finally say what James Gunn announced on Adam Carolla,” he wrote. “I’m in freaking Guardians.”
Rosenbaum played Lex Luthor on Smallville and previously worked with the Guardians director on James Gunn’s PG Porn, a web series created by Gunn and his two brothers, Sean and Brian.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is released May 5.

The Bakersfield Condors and Ontario Reign are set to head outdoors for the Condorstown Outdoor Classic on Jan. 7, but it’d be hard to blame hockey-heads if they were more excited for the NHL Alumni-Celebrity game that will take place the day prior.
It was announced in late-November that the contest, which will feature greats from the parent teams of both AHL clubs, would be captained by Wayne Gretzky and Luc Robitaille, with ‘The Great One’ leading the Condors in the head-to-head against ‘Lucky Luc’ and the Reign group.
Gretzky and Robitaille won’t be the only Hall of Famers who make their way to Bakersfield for the outing, though, as they’ll be joined by 2014 Hall of Fame inductee Rob Blake and 2008 inductee and six-time Stanley Cup champion Glenn Anderson, who will suit up for the Condors.
The sheer number of Stanley Cup titles on the Condors/Oilers roster is overwhelming, too. Beyond Gretzky and Anderson, who have a combined 10 championships, there are another 18 Cup rings to go around. That includes six-time champion Kevin Lowe, four-time winners Craig MacTavish and Duane Sutter and two-time champions Dave Semenko and Kelly Buchberger.
The Reign alumni won’t have near the championship pedigree in the outdoor game, boasting only four Stanley Cup winners on their roster. That includes Robitaille, Blake, Sean O’Donnell and Tomas Sandstrom.
Other notables on the rosters include Mike Comrie, who will be skating with the Condors, and Bernie Nicholls, Nelson Emerson, Kyle Calder, Jaroslav Modry and Jamie Storr, all of whom will be dressing for the Reign.
There are also several notables suiting up in the contest who’ve never suited up for either team, but have made the cut as part of the ‘celebrity’ portion of the game. For the Oilers, the notables include Wayne’s son Ty Gretzky and David Pelletier, the pairs figure skater who won gold at the 2002 Olympics. The Kings will have a few more non-alumni suiting up, including Bones star David Boreanaz, Smallville’s Michael Rosenbaum and E! News’ Ken Baker.
The outdoor games will both take place at Bakersfield College’s Memorial Stadium, with the potential for 19,000 fans to be in attendance. Even if the stadium is sold out, it will be far from the most-attended in AHL history. The 2012 AHL Outdoor Classic between the Adirondack Phantoms and Hershey Bears drew an announced attendance of more than 45,000 fans to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
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.)
