Looks like we’ll be seeing more Howard the Duck in the MCU if Kevin Feige’s most recent comment is to be trusted. After having a brief appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy post-credits, fans were left to wonder if the Duck would have a greater role elsewhere.
*Minor Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 spoilers follow*
In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Howard the Duck makes another appearance as he is seen enjoying a drink on Contraxia. Howard the Duck’s face also appears during the credits of the sequel, alongside the Guardians. Could Howard the Duck be joining the team? Or will he simply be popping up randomly in cosmic stories? Kevin Feige gave us the lowdown.
“You know, the fun thing about Howard is he shows up where you least expect him, so like who knows where he’s going to appear next?” said Feige.
Due to his comments, we’re left to believe Howard will be popping up in cameos ala Stan Lee in future MCU projects. Fans who wanted a Howard the Duck film will undoubtedly be disappointed, but there likely weren’t too many of those. I expect Howard’s appearances to be regulated to upcoming cosmic films, but that makes an appearance in the upcoming Avengers very likely.
