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

01.19.2015

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 continue Howard the Duck's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY cameo in the form of a new comic book. Marvel has relaunched Howard the Duck and the second issue of the new series will delve into the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY scene.

“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? Well, you will now!”

Everything about this is awesome and I hope the comic series and the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY cameo leads Marvel to attempting a new Howard the Duck film. Maybe an all CGI movie from Disney? Maybe Marvel Studios first animated film? The possibilities are endless on branching out the Marvel Cinematic Universe in weird and crazy directions. This may not have been the plan, but James Gunn definitely has opened the door.

I don't know who the writer is (hopefully still Bendis), but comic book-movie tie ins are like 80% terrible. Telling what happened between ASP1 and 2 or just comic prequel. Always money grabs. And I wonder if it'll just play off that last scene, and continue in the cinematic universe, or the comic-verse. Or just something new. At least they are trying to reboot the character. The old omnibus is great. Can't wait for the first issue with GROOT, rocket, and Deadpool. .....and then the

This is kind of cool. And I know the hype on the credit scene is split in terms of who liked it and who didn't. But I think it works for revitalizing the character (even if that wasn't the intent). If the comic proves to be successful and they want to test the waters with a movie. I hope they try to make the movie outside of the established MCU. I feel like including the character into the actual mythology of the MCU will detract from it. So hopefully the movie is made as an animated

Yes for comic. No for movie.

I prefer animated ducks in an animated world over live action. That thing looks like it was pulled out of a toilet.

Like the Stark/Banner scene...it was fun...at the moment of seeing it...then you probably got up and felt a sudden feeling of immense disappointment as you realise you were left with no hint as to what comes next in the Marvel cinematic universe. Well, that's how I felt both times.

maybe i'm in the minority but i liked the howard the duck movie. i thought it was fun. i thought the end credit scene in GOTG was a fun surprise. i'm not sure why they changed the way howard looks, but i guess they wanted him to look more modern.

I know a lot of people were let down by the end credit sequence, but I thought it was a really nice surprise.

No one knew who the duck was supposed to be. It was a really odd choice. Not to mention they way they mix the sound now, and it was hard to even hear what he said.

I think people were let down because usually the end credit scene would propel or hint at the future of the MCU. I thought it was humorous in my audience you could hear a bunch of wannabees (who obviously ruined the end credit scene b4 seeing the movie) ACTING surprised and ACTING as if they know who Howard the Duck is and that they are the Howard the Duck superfan. like really?
