Going into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were expecting cameos. After all, the original film from 2014 tossed Cosmo the Space Dog and Howard the Duck into the mix. However, meeting the original Guardians of the Galaxy as they appeared in Marvel Comics was a delightful and unexpected treat. Finally, a closer look has been revealed.
While fans will have to wait until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is release on blu-ray or Digital HD to pause, rewind, and take closer looks at the fantastically designed character, a new look has been released online courtesy of the concept artist who created his look.
Marvel Studios concept artist Ian Joyner took to Twitter to share the "final designs" for Martinex as they ended up appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Check it out in the tweet below.
Along with Starhawk, Martinex was introduced early in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 during an encounter with Yondu.
