Howard The Duck

Dear Internet, James Gunn is not and is not planning to shoot a Howard the Duck movie. No matter how much we all wish he would. Today’s story is just another “Hey the Internet says…” type of story that started with a simple tweet, that lead to a bunch of tweets, that lead to a couple of James Gunn tweets. Follow the bread crumb trail of tweets below. (more…)


We know that when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, that Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper will be back as Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot and Rocket respectively. We also know that Michael Rooker will return as Yondu, that Karen Gillan will be looking for a new fight as Nebula, and that Glenn Close will class the place up as Nova Prime.

Remember before the last 10 seconds of Guardians of the Galaxy when everyone thought that trying to re-make a Howard the Duck movie was a monumentally bad idea? Well, it didn’t take too long after the post-credits scene of GOTG for people to start talking about the greatness of Howard. Heck, he even has his own self-titled comic book again.

James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy is the Christmas gift that just keeps on giving, it seems. Thanks to the post-credits scene (which was originally suppose to be part of the alternate ending) in Guardians of the Galaxy, there has been a rekindled interest in the swashbuckling mallard. Now, Marvel have announced a reprinting of their Howard The Duck Omnibus, comiXology have increased their digital library of classic Howard issues and now, Marvel announced – via Entertainment Weekly – that Howard the Duck is getting his own ongoing series beginning on March 4th, 2015. Not bad for a 10 second cameo in a movie, albeit, a summer blockbuster turn movie sensation of the year! (more…)

For many movie fans, especially when it comes to comic book movies, part of the fun in watching the films is searching for those Easter Eggs that are generally sprinkled from beginning to end. For the uninitiated, “Easter Eggs” refer to the hidden winks that movie makers put into movies as a way of tipping their hat to quick-eyed viewers.

Something like this was bound to happen, the Internet spent a week worrying it self to death over what Nathan Fillion‘s cameo in James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy would be.
