I've listened to it 4-5 times already. Pretty [frick]ing hilarious.
TheBrownHornet - 8/10/2014, 2:25 PM
Maybe on Disney XD.
chessteve - 8/10/2014, 2:25 PM
It was funny to see him but I don't think he really fits a "real" world Marvel universe.
Inhuman - 8/10/2014, 2:25 PM
Ive been saying from day 1 Howard The Duck will cameo in Guardians and sure enough he did. Ive also been saying the Guardians Blu-ray should have a One Shot of him. It would redeem his character after that horrible movie and Im sure it'll be funny as hell
giannis - 8/10/2014, 2:31 PM
The only duck that should get a movie is the nephew of Scrooge McDuck, Donald :p

BabyGroot - 8/10/2014, 2:32 PM
What an awesome way to get back your character lol That's awesome.

@Inhuman that'd be a great idea for a One Shot. I could definitely see that happening, having a One Shot based on the aftermath of the infinity stone getting triggered. Hopefully that'll allow more easter eggs to be shown of the silliest characters or even important ones that could lead into Guardians 2 or Avengers 3. Who knows?! :P
BANE5000 - 8/10/2014, 2:32 PM

i like that idea, show how he led up to being in The Collectors possession and also maybe show even more easter eggs as to what he has in his museum while putting Howard in his case :]
BabyGroot - 8/10/2014, 2:33 PM
@DamianWayne that'd be cool too
jessepostal - 8/10/2014, 2:38 PM
I'm watching the Howard blu ray right now, loving every second of it.
Pasto - 8/10/2014, 2:42 PM
So I recently started listening to your podcast, beginning with episode 1. Man, you guys rock. Love the show.
Dingbat - 8/10/2014, 2:42 PM
Howard the duck could give Batman a run for his money.
Giznad - 8/10/2014, 2:46 PM
This is one of the coolest stories I've ever heard.
marvel72 - 8/10/2014, 2:46 PM
the only ways i want to see howard the duck,in no particular order.

-an episode of marvels agents of shield
-a marvel one-shot
-animated show
MarvelFan15 - 8/10/2014, 2:52 PM
One Shot on GOTG Blu-Ray/DVD release in January.
MisterNiceGuy - 8/10/2014, 2:57 PM
Please no. Because knowing Disney, they would want to make him a child favorite and that would completely go against everything HTD stands for.
KnobGoblin - 8/10/2014, 2:58 PM
I don't think we need another full-on 'Howard the Duck' movie, but it would be fun to see him pop-up in future 'Guardians of the Galaxy' sequels for a gag, or two. Also, I think I'm the only one that seems to like the original 'Howard the Duck' movie. I brings up a lot of nostalgic memories for me.
batz11 - 8/10/2014, 2:59 PM
Great story...
ferkinghulk - 8/10/2014, 3:01 PM
who cares about it?

the only care is avengers 2 trailer!
ferkinghulk - 8/10/2014, 3:01 PM
guardians of the galaxy piece of crap movie!
NightForce - 8/10/2014, 3:02 PM
You're literally 100% wrong. Rocket wasn't kiddiefied, he was a tortured little creature with a tragic backstory. Disney won't alter Howard the Duck. Plus for [frick]s sake DISNEY HAS NO CREATIVE CONTROL OVER MARVEL. How do you not know this by now?
NightForce - 8/10/2014, 3:03 PM
I think a Howard the Duck One Shot with the GOTG Blu-ray is a fun idea. A movie would be too much.
NightForce - 8/10/2014, 3:04 PM
oh look another cockroach troll.
CrimsonDynamo - 8/10/2014, 3:04 PM
i will wait for Howard the Duck meets Donald Duck from our friends at Disney in 2019 - until then, please make it stop.
CrimsonDynamo - 8/10/2014, 3:05 PM
and boy was the cgi shit when he showed up
ferkinghulk - 8/10/2014, 3:10 PM
Guardians of The Galaxy turn into the worst Marvel movies ever!
This movie was so desnecessary!

And more sad than this its these people accept it!
ferkinghulk - 8/10/2014, 3:14 PM
What can i expect from this piece crap movie?
waht can i expect from the comics writer by the brian "WEAK" bendis?

For God's sake, GET REAL, PEOPLE!
This movie don't deserve all this box office!

Give to us age of ultron trailer and forget about the rest!
ferkinghulk - 8/10/2014, 3:17 PM

oh look another cockroach troll


Gose - 8/10/2014, 3:18 PM
RABBIT SEASON AMIGOS!!! Howard, Daffy & Donald !!! Now DC gets a chance for BIG $$$ ....... UNLESS YOU'RE DESPICABLE... indubitably
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 8/10/2014, 3:22 PM
Haha Steve Gerber's a boss
NightForce - 8/10/2014, 3:24 PM
might want to take you're own advice f.uckboy
GodzillaKart - 8/10/2014, 3:41 PM
This may be the best thing I ever heard.

I do think that was all the Howard the Duck we need.
dethpillow - 8/10/2014, 3:43 PM
i never watch videos that don't come with at least some reasonable attempt at genuine commentary, so i don't know or care about what you're saying here.

but i agree with posters saying that a Howard Duck one shot on GOTG is such a great idea. they could have so much fun with that.

i really hope that happens.
MisterNiceGuy - 8/10/2014, 4:02 PM
@TheCaptain, I disagree....100% ;)
Spideysense44 - 8/10/2014, 4:13 PM
Give him an animated tv show
SnapperCarr - 8/10/2014, 4:13 PM
Umm.....hell yes!
BlindJustice - 8/10/2014, 4:18 PM
A One-Shot would be awesome. Perhaps showing how The Collector ended up with him and Cosmo. They could have Cosmo using telepathy as well.

I'm not so sure about a full-length feature film though. I'm just proud that my kids knew who Howard was!
Ranger14 - 8/10/2014, 4:20 PM
One Shot at the most. It was great the way they worked him in, but I don't really care to see another solo film or anything like that. Small cameo appearances would be alright.
BlindJustice - 8/10/2014, 4:31 PM
I've heard rumors that the 'Power Pack' might be getting the animated treatment after 'Big Hero 6'.
Demongod20 - 8/10/2014, 4:33 PM
Give me a Howard the Duck oneshot and a Howard the Duck cartoon series. Then do Howard the Duck Cameos in ever other MCU movies.
MajorTom - 8/10/2014, 4:46 PM
Yes they should, Marvel should trick out every whore they have working for them lime any good pimp should. Bitch slap Howard if he doesn't stand on his corner like a good slut.
