With a screen credit in director James Gunn's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" reportedly given to Marvel's "Howard The Duck" creators, writer Steve Gerber and illustrator Val Mayerik, Sneak Peek the origins of the cigar-smoking, three-foot-tall anthropomorphic duck, previously adapted to the big screen by Lucasfilm and currently in development @ Disney for further opportunities:
In the 1970's, Disney originally threatened Marvel with legal action due to Howard's satiric resemblance to 'Donald Duck', forcing Marvel to redesign the character.
Howard's near-constant companion and occasional girlfriend is former art model and Cleveland native 'Beverly Switzler'. Howard found himself on Earth due to a shift in the 'Cosmic Axis' from a world similar to Earth.

Greetings and salutations everyone! Welcome to the best movie news wrap-up on the web, the WhatCulture.com News Brief! For those of you just joining us, we’re here to dissect the biggest movie and television developments that invaded our RSS feeds this week, and what a week it was!
On the superhero front we’ve got updates for Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Flash, Daredevil, and the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (which gets bigger and bigger each week!) We’ve also got updates on the Power Rangers reboot, as well as the current state of the Spider-Man franchise (I don’t know about you, but my Spidey sense is really tingling with that one).
On the other side of the spectrum we’ve got updates about a Beatles documentary from Ron Howard, a movie about a beloved 1980s arcade game (not, it’s not Ms. Pac-Man, sorry »

James Gunn once promised that Guardians of the Galaxy would have “the most Marvel comics characters ever in one movie,” and if a new list of “confirmed” cameos making the rounds is to be believed, he may just be right.
We already know that the film is jam-packed with heroes and villains, from the titular Guardians themselves to their array of multi-colored, deadly pursuers and allied authority figures. But now, courtesy of Stitch Kingdom, we have information about some of the cameos, including details about who Nathan Fillion and Stan Lee are playing.
We’ve been hearing for a while now that Fillion would be making an appearance in the film, with many initially speculating that he’d be playing someone like Richard Rider (the superhero Nova) or Cosmo (a telepathic Russian space dog). Cosmo will be in the film, but won’t be voiced by Fillion. Instead, Cosmo will »

Update: Apparently the previous headline was a spoiler and people got angry on Twitter. So, I've changed it and you should know there are spoilers in this post. Marvel has released the press kit for Guardians of the Galaxy and Stitch Kingdom pored over the credits to notice Stan Lee will play a character named Xandarian Ladies' Man, Nathan Fillion cameos as Monstrous Inmate, Rob Zombie voices Ravager Navigator Voice and writer/director James Gunn cameos as Maskless Sakaaran. Then they reach a little deeper, noticing at the very end of the scroll it says "Howard the Duck created by Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik", which very well seems to suggest that yes, the Marvel character that appeared in the 1986 box-office bust directed by Willard Huyck very well may be seen walking around the world of the Guardians. Makes sense to me, you have a talking tree and raccoon, why »

This post contains potential spoilers for the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy.
In Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket is a wise-cracking, raccoon-like creature voiced by Bradley Cooper. If Rocket is a departure from the typical caped superhero, he’s not the first anthropomorphic Marvel comic-book character to have his moment on the big screen. Back in 1986, Howard the Duck starred in a notorious bomb, produced by George Lucas, that made the once-cool character a pathetic punchline. He’s been missing from the movies ever since.
But according to StitchKingdom.com, Howard is getting a second chance—from the Guardians themselves. »

What are you doing next Monday night? Well, Marvel hopes you'll be watching "Jimmy Kimmel Live" where Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper will all be on hand to push "Guardians Of The Galaxy," which has its world premiere and will start screening for critics next week. And it's part of the studio's push on the public at large as well, hoping to acquaint them with these characters and get a sense of who they are before they buy a ticket next month. And so that means more epic marketing is on hand. So below, you'll see a clip (an extended version of one that has been floating for a while now), featurette, posters and TV spots that all offer variations of stuff from the movie. But maybe you want more? Well, how about rumors about a surprise cameo in the film? Spoilers ahead. Stitch »

Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" is set to hit theaters on August 1st and with James Gunn directing, fans can expect lots of surprises from the Marvel universe. The following has not been confirmed by the studio, but Disney fan site Stitch Kingdom is claiming that it has seen the list of credits from the film and spotted some interesting things. It turns out that Rob Zombie is providing his voice for Ravager Navigator and Gunn plays Maskless Sakaaran. But the biggest surprise may be that "Guardians of the Galaxy" may feature Howard the Duck, because the character's creators, Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik, are both listed in the credits. »
Do we have to say "spoilers?" If you're already reading, then you must want to know, and the news might unveil one of the bits everyone will be talking about after Guardians of the Galaxy bows on August 1. The rumblings come from Disney blog Stitch Kingdom, and though the details are vague, the mere mention of this cameo gives us goosebumps. Don't forget what James Gunn told us while on set: "There are a ton of characters from the comics in this movie in little tiny roles. The most Marvel characters that have ever been in one movie--i would imagine times four!" According to the site, writer Steve Gerber and artist Val Mayerik and their creation Howard the Duck are credited in the final scroll of Guardians. Now, all that intimates is that...

Good to know.
How did we hear that this time? The website Stitch Kingdom claims to have gotten a complete credits list for Guardians of the Galaxy that reveals the Marvel Universe cameos notable celebrities (and James Gunn himself) will appear as:
Stan Lee will have his customary cameo, this time as the ‘Xandarian Ladies’ Man;’ browncoat favorite Nathan Fillion will be dolled up as ‘Monstrous Inmate;’ musician Rob Zombie lends his voice as the ‘Ravager Navigator Voice;’ and writer/director James Gunn himself will appear in the film as one of the ‘Maskless Sakaaran.’
Also appearing in the film, though not a cameo, is actor Fred the dog who assumes the role of Cosmo.
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 »
According to Stitch Kingdom, there are going to be a lot more cameos in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy than just Stan Lee. The site says that Disney sent them a full credited cast for the James Gunn-directed film, and who they all will play. It also includes a few fun surprises, including Nathan Fillion's cameo.
If you don't want to give your brain this knowledge then stop reading, because spoilers lie ahead. Here's the info they give:

After yesterday’s big Marvel Cinematic Universe news blitz – which included our very first look at Avengers: Age of Ultron – the folks at Stitch Kingdom have unearthed details of surprise cameos for Guardians of the Galaxy, including Nathan Fillion and Stan Lee’s roles, as well as a couple of familiar faces from the Marvel comic book universe. If you don’t mind being spoiled, read on below….
So, according to the final credits for the movie, Stan Lee is set to play ‘Zandarian Ladies Man’, Nathan Fillion is portrayed ‘Monstrous Inmate’, Rob Zombie is lending his voice to ‘Ravager Navigator Voice’, director James Gunn pulls a Hitchcock with ‘Maskless Sakaaran’ and Fred the dog appears as Cosmo. However, that’s not all, as the site reports that Howard the Duck will appear (stemming from a credit to co-creators Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik). Yes, that’s Howard the Duck… »

Three new posters, cameo news, and a possible surprise inclusion for Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy...
It's two weeks today that Guardians Of The Galaxy lands in UK cinemas, with its Us bow the day after. And ahead of that, a trio of new character posters have just landed, which we've got for you right here.
If you scroll down below the posters, you'll find confirmed details of the cameos in the film too. Note that these may be considered minor spoilers, hence we've parked them all the way down there.
Posters first, then....
Okay, cameos. According to the credits that have now been finalised, Stan Lee will be appearing as 'Xandarian Ladies' Man', Nathan Fillion is down to play 'Monstrous Innmate', Rob Zombie no less will be voicing 'Ravager Navigator Voice', and director James Gunn pops up there somewhere is 'Maskless Sakaaran'.
Stitch Kingdom also reports that "Marvel »
After months of speculation, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed last month that Nathan Fillion does have a cameo appearance in Marvel's Phase Two adventure, but denied the rumor that he was playing Richard Rider, a.k.a. Nova. Another unconfirmed report from later that month revealed that the actor was actually voicing the role of Cosmo, the psychic Russian cosmonaut dog who serves as the security chief of Knowehere.
Today, Stitch Kingdom has gotten a hold of the full Guardians of the Galaxy cast list, which reveals who Nathan Fillion is playing, along with Marvel legend Stan Lee's cameo and a surprise voice role by musician/filmmaker Rob Zombie. Take a look at the character details below.
With Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy now just two weeks from gracing the silver-screen, the official cast listing has been released via Stitch Kingdom. They finally reveal not only who both Nathan Fillion and Stan Lee will portray in the film, but also previously unknown camoes. Plus, there's a rather odd reference to a certain Marvel bird. Check them out with a mild spoiler warning! Otherwise, here’s what we’ve learned: Stan Lee will have his customary cameo, this time as the ‘Xandarian Ladies’ Man;’ browncoat favorite Nathan Fillion will be dolled up as ‘Monstrous Inmate;’ musician Rob Zombie lends his voice as the ‘Ravager Navigator Voice;’ and writer/director James Gunn himself will appear in the film as one of the ‘Maskless Sakaaran.’ 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. »

I know many people come to Cinelinx.com and wonder why a movie and video game website is covering a rock band. Well Kiss isn't Just a rock band. Since their first appearance in Howard the Duck #12 in 1977, the hottest band in the world has fought off creatures from different worlds and transformed into different bodies and species to battle against the forces of evil in the universe. They also appeared in their own movie in which they fended off the "Attack of the Phantoms." I would say that cult classic film and 37 years of comic book history gives Kiss the right to be on Cinelinx.com.
It’s evident Kiss takes its song “Hotter Than Hell” literally. The band proved themselves over the past forty years as they picked and chose what they wanted to do and when they wanted to do it. They keep stepping up to the »

‘Narrative art’ is defined as something ‘that tells a story, either as a moment in an ongoing story or as a sequence of events unfolding over time’
George Lucas has retired apparently. Having sold his empire to Disney making him wealthier than a barely developed principality with minimal infrastructure, we are now being treated to phase two in the Lucas mid-life crisis.
When I first heard that Norman Rockwell, foremost painter of post war Americana was being placed alongside original Star Wars miniatures and props it made no sense. Rockwell was known for capturing perfect moments in life which told a story or narrative beyond the confines of the frame. How could Lucas have the temerity to place his work alongside that of a real artist?
Informally known as ‘The Lucas Museum of »
