Rumor: A Howard the Duck Cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy?


Howard the Duck

If they’re giving his creators credit, could Howard show up in the movie?

Fans of the Marvel Cosmic Universe there’s another Marvel character who happens to be an animal. Howard the Duck, star of the first-ever big screen Marvel film in 1986, is part of the Marvel Cosmic Universe. Could he show up in some way in Guardians of the Galaxy?

Disney fansite Stitch Kingdom has a rundown of the cameos on the movie (including who Stan Lee and Nathan Fillion are playing) and points out that the creators of Howard the Duck are in the film’s credits:

But saving perhaps the best for last… we’re not exactly sure what it means yet — if anything — but while he couldn’t get himself a 25th anniversary Blu-ray (and not from lack of trying), Marvel legend Howard the Duck is somewhere to be found in the film. This inference comes from a line in the end titles that credits co-creators Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik. Whether it’s just a film/comic Peter Quill was familiar with before he was abducted from Earth or we’re about to have a new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is just about anyone’s guess.

As they point out, it could just be a comic in the background or something like that, but how awesome would it be if it’s something bigger than that?
