Speaking of movies based on the characters of Marvel Comics sends us immediately to the Movie universe of Marvelbut before this franchise became one of the most important film, had multiple failures that maybe they wanted to forget and recently one of the most renowned directors of this universe talked about one of them, since James Gunn did not like the movie ‘Howard the Duck’.
While the character of Howard the Duck is part of the MCU due to the cameos he had in both productions of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’in addition to the brief look in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ in the final battle, but it has never really been talked about having a greater development of the character due in part to its dark past in the film.
During a recent interview with the director of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ made it very clear to James Gunn did not like the movie ‘Howard the Duck’ although regarded as a true fan of this character since I was a child:
“It is not a good movie. Obviously I love your cameos (MCU), and that I am responsible for most of them.”
But this may not be a surprise, since the film ‘Howard the Duck’ of 1986 it is considered as one of the productions strangest in the entire history of cinema, even showing scenes bawdy with the actress Lea Thompson not pleased, nor to most fans of the character, among them, of course, James Gunn, who decided to bring this duck from another perspective much different.
