The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Postcredits Sequence Is Getting a Sequel

20 January 2015 1:20 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

A comic book sequel, that is. Surprisingly, one of the biggest stars of Guardians of the Galaxy is a character that was barely in the movie. Appearing briefly in the film and its postcredits sequence, Howard the Duck took the world of fandom by storm when it looked like Marvel was resurrecting the character -- who was the subject of the 1986 cult classic that bared his name -- by making him a part of the new big-screen Marvel universe.  While we wait to see if Marvel gives Howard his own movie or makes him a part of someone else's adventures, the comic powerhouse has decided to begin with a new line of Howard the Duck comics, with the second issue telling the story of how the irritable duck wound up a part of the Collector's collection.

Will Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Add Howard The Duck?

19 January 2015 9:12 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Perhaps the most indirect effect of the success of Guardians Of The Galaxy is the renewed public interest in one of Marvel's more second string characters, Howard The Duck. After a failed 1986 feature adaptation, produced by George Lucas, as well as some continued mini series in the comic world, the character seemed relegated to a footnote in history. But whether he meant to or not, James Gunn has sparked a new round of duck fever for audiences far and wide. This time, it could just work out in the feathered fowl's favor, and as a result it's not too hard to believe that we could start seeing more of him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and perhaps Guardians of the Galaxy 2. The Hollywood Reporter has broken the good news that Howard The Duck is going to cross paths with the Guardians Of The Galaxy again, albeit this time in his »

The Guardians of the Galaxy Post-Credits Sequence is Getting a Spin-Off Sequel

19 January 2015 1:40 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you’re hoping we’re here to tell you that a new Howard the Duck movie is in the works, I’m sorry to say that’s not the case. And if you’re suddenly spoiled by that immediate revelation that Howard the Duck appears in the post-credits sequence of Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m not that sorry because I don’t know why else you clicked on a post about a spin-off to the most popular movie of last year. Anyway, here’s the deal: Howard the Duck has a new comic book series from Marvel, and the second issue is going to explain how the character (voiced by Seth Green) wound up sharing that drink with The Collector (Benicio del Toro). That makes it more of a prequel or sidequel or something other than a sequel, but the latter terminology is what Marvel is going with in this description of “Howard the Duck” #2, via »

Marvel Developing Comic Sequel to Guardians Of The Galaxy Post-Credits Scene

19 January 2015 1:17 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In case you've been wondering how Howard the Duck ended up in The Collector's collection in Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel is developing a comic book story that will explain exactly how that happened. The comic will be a sequel to the post-credit scene at the end of the film that featured Howard as one of The Collector's prized possessions.

Marvel announced that the Howard the Duck and Guardians of the Galaxy story will take place in Howard the Duck #2. We previously posted the cover art for the comic, which I've also included in this post. Here's the story description thanks to THR:

Howard’s first big case has taken him across the universe and landed him in the clutches of The Collector! But he’s not alone as the very popular Rocket Raccoon is a prisoner as well! Have you ever seen a comic book sequel to a post-credits scene in a movie? »

'Guardians' Howard the Duck Scene Gets Comic Book Sequel

19 January 2015 12:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we won't see Howard the Duck starring in his own movie anytime soon, Marvel has launched a new comic book series revolving around the popular 70s character, who made his infamous return to the big screen in this past summer's blockbuster hit Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel has confirmed that Issue #2 will actually serve as a prequel/sequel to the fan-favorite end credits scene which featured Howard hanging out with the Collector.

Eagle-eyed viewers first noticed Howard the Duck as part of the Collector's menagerie early on in Guardians of the Galaxy. The upcoming comic book will reveal how Howard wound up in the Collector's (Benicio Del Toro) clutches. Here is the official synopsis for the story, courtesy of THR:

Howard's first big case has taken him across the universe and landed him in the clutches of The Collector! But he's not alone as the very popular Rocket Raccoon is a prisoner as well! »

Platinum Dunes' supernatural horror tale "Ouija" cost a mere $5 million to produce, but has so far managed a $90 million worldwide gross. As a result, it's unsurprising news that a sequel is already in development. [Source: Collider]

Anthony Mackie is super keen on reprising his role of Falcon in the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War" and confirmed that he will get a new suit and a set of Falcon wings following the destruction of his original pair in 'The Winter Soldier'. He tells Wttg Fox 5 Radio:

"I have a brand new costume; I'm full in effect. Iwill tell you this: Cap 3 is gonna be everything you can imagine. Cap 2 was really Avengers 1.5, and Cap 3 is gonna be Avengers 3.8." [Source: Cbm]

Marvel to expand the Guardians of the Galaxy credit sequence as comic book

19 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

That great end credits scene from Guardians Of The Galaxy was always just meant as a bit of fun from director James Gunn. After the historically maligned Howard The Duck nearly destroyed George Lucas, there was not much hope we would ever see the character grace the big screen again. Now, with Guardians Of The Galaxy clinging to the title of Highest Grossing Movie of 2014, Marvel has decided to continue Howard's tale. While it is, unfortunately, not going to be a movie, Marvel will »

East Coast Comicon puts comics first

4 January 2015 10:22 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In recent years, comics conventions have become less about the comics creators, who crafted (and continue to craft) the characters beloved by pop culture and more about celebrity guests. Yes, it is fun to get a picture made with your favorite Star Trek captain or Doctor Who companion, but from my personal experience as well as that of con-goers and the crowded nature of big shows like San Diego and New York Comic Con, it seems like the comics have been pushed aside for “geek culture” celebrities. Some conventions might as well take out the “comic” in “comic con”. However, some shows continue to put comics and creators first, and one of them is East Coast Comicon.

East Coast Comicon began as Asbury Park Comic Con and was held in 2012 at a converted bowling alley/rock club in Asbury Park, NJ. It was founded by independent comics creator Cliff Galbraith »

"Howard The Duck" - Trapped In A World He Never Made

4 January 2015 9:19 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Comics' cigar-smoking, three-foot-tall anthropomorphic 'Howard The Duck', including his post-credits scene in Marvel Studios "Guardians Of The Galaxy", on the news that Disney is developing the character for further opportunities:

'Howard the Duck' was created by writer Steve Gerber and illustrator Val Mayerik, as an 'existentialist' expression, with its main joke, according to Gerber, is that there is no joke: "that life's most serious moments and most incredibly dumb moments are often distinguishable only by a momentary point of view..."

Howard found himself on Earth due to a shift in the 'Cosmic Axis' from a world similar to Earth.

Howard's near-constant companion and occasional girlfriend is former art model and Cleveland native 'Beverly Switzler'. 

"Howard the Duck" debuted in Marvel's "Adventure into Fear" #19 in 1973, and by 1976 was given his own title. 

George Lucas then produced a live-action version in 1986.

Howard The Duck screens Wednesday night January 7th at Schlafly Bottleworks at 8pm

“No duck is an island. And if fate sent me here to save Earth, then Howard the Duck is ready to fight!”

You never know what’s brewing at Webster University’s Strange Brew cult film series.

The fun happens at Schlafly Bottleworks Restaurant and Bar in Maplewood (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143).

Few things are more imposing than a midget in a duck suit. Lea Thompson with big hair is one of them. Yes, Howard The Duck was one of the biggest box office disasters of its decade – It came »
