Of all the Easter eggs and references scattered throughout Guardians of the Galaxy, the last-minute cameo from Howard the Duck is undoubtedly the best and weirdest. It takes a certain amount of nerve to drop one of Marvel‘s strangest characters into a movie already packed with niche C-listers, so you have to admire director James Gunn‘s choice to end his big, weird movie with a big, weird character.
However, Guardians of the Galaxy was a massive hit, transforming the likes of Star-Lord and Drax into household names. The same wave of instant popularity also washed over Howard. Suddenly, normal people were interested in this anthropomorphized alien duck, which is just plain weird. It must be especially weird for Howard’s voice actor, Seth Green, who had to make it known at this year’s New York Comic-Con that there are currently no plans for a Howard the Duck movie. Not even after Marvel announced three untitled films for 2020.
Check out the last Howard the Duck movie update after the jump.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is quickly expanding, and maybe we’re taking for granted that it will all collide and connect at some point. When Marvel announced the two-part two-film event The Avengers: Infinity War, we all assumed that we’d see all of the Marvel heroes in this one epic story. And we might see both the Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers in those movies, but don’t expect to see the two teams crossover on the big screen — at least according to Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the films. Lets hear Hawkeye’s thoughts on a potential Avengers Guardians crossover.
