According to an online report it was leaked on Wednesday the post credit scene in the Guardians of the Galaxy will feature everyone’s favorite duck from the Marvel Universe.
In a clip, which is under a minute long, Guardians villain The Collector, Benicio Del Toro is having a cocktail in his laboratory with a talking, CGI duck.
Howard the Duck first appeared in Marvel comics as a one-off visual gag in a 1973 Man-Thing story. Creator Steve Gerber launched a Howard the Duck title of in 1976. Through the years, Howard the Duck maintained some crossover with the superhero universe.
If true, does this mean Howard the Duck might see a second life in Hollywood? Who knows, it’s Hollywood. What it does mean is that Marvel has an obvious sense of humor about a character that received a bad image campaign from a 1986 movie directed by George Lucas.
So if anyone sees Guardians of the Galaxy over its opening weekend, let me know if Howard the Duck actually makes an appearance, I would love to know.
