Too counter culture. Too surreal. Too imaginative. Generation Hipster wouldn't get him.

Would we see Howard's nemesis Doctor Bong?

Wouldn't that be the shortest movie in history?

Five seconds into the movie she has beaten the Big Bad into a pulp... off screen.

It could be the set up to Howard. City Park SG is doing her thing then a giant beastie comes along. SG rushes toward it, we switch to the screaming fleeing citizens a bit then come back to SG and the badly beaten beastie where SG gives a safety warning about looking both ways before crossing the street. Then on to Howard.

Big spoiler about an appearance of Howard in an upcoming Marvel movie...

It looks like they're going for it anyway.

Re: Disney's Howard the Duck reboot.

I liked the first Howard film and a rebooted Howard would be great. I may have to go see GotG after all.

Yeah, but will it be Gerberesque social satire or just an angry duck with a gun?

That depends on Marvel's perception of their current audience--which is not as into the kind of social satire Marvel fans were exposed to in the 1970s. Big noises, geek-off material and high school-level comic relief is the order of the day, so I would say vintage Howard should not be expected.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I would expect.

Re: Disney's Howard the Duck reboot.

I think Howard's apearance in GotG was just a fun gag, not an indication of future plans of Marvel Studios.

Re: Disney's Howard the Duck reboot.

^I hope not. Marvel's brave enough to do a talking raccoon, why not Howard? Besides, GotG could have used a number of post credit scenes to set up the next MCU movie (like all of the rest). It seems pointless to show Howard just to appease a small fan base.

(no point in spoiling this, as it's part of the discussion now)

Why not? Iron Man 3 ended with a joke that wrapped up the movie by showing us that Stark was talking to Banner the whole time. Thor 2 ended with a Norse dog-creature chasing a bird.

This could be the same, ending a very fun and funny movie on the same fun and funny note with nothing more to look into. As with the other phase 2 movies, there's no rule that these set up anything. That was a phase 1 thing. We've moved on.
