Many fans were extremely surprised to see Howard the Duck in the post-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy, but in a recent Q&A, James Gunn reveals that the original scene would have been very different indeed! Check it out!



Marvel Studios' practice of placing bonus scenes during the credits has become one of the staples of their films, but many moviegoers were perplexed when the after credits scene for Guardians of the Galaxy featured Howard the Duck. However, during a recent podcast Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith, Gunn shed some light on the creative process involving the credits scene, revealing that the original stinger was supposed to be the Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch scene that led into next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron.

"“I thought we were going to have an end credits sequence from like Avengers, ok," explains Gunn. "We never got it. Cap 2 stole it from us. But that’s fine. We didn’t really have any relationship to the Avengers anyway, so it makes sense that we didn’t get it." However, this apparently was the plan for quite a while, because they had little time to create a new credits scene once the Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch stinger was shifted to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. "We were trying to cut footage together that we already had to create an ending. And I thought about having Cosmo talk or do something like that. And then Fred Raskin, our editor, said, ‘It’s kind of like Benicio looks over at this box for a minute. We could probably cut something into that.’ And that’s when we came up…and I honestly can’t remember if it was me or Fred…when we came up with putting Howard the Duck in the box."
