Guardians of the Galaxy was full of incredible nods, cameos, and Easter Eggs, but people left the theaters talking about that big appearance after the film's credits. Howard The Duck had people rolling in that moment, and everyone has been asking when the talking bird would return for more Marvel action.
Some say Howard was just a one-off character, and there is no intention of bringing him into another MCU film. Others believe that he could appear as early as next week, when the next Guardians film hits theaters.
However, at the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press junket, Marvel president Kevin Feige teased that Howard could be appearing again sometime in the future. He didn't say where, or when, the duck could pop up on screen, but he definitely left the possibility wide open.
"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?"
He said that Howard's next appearance would be unexpected, so that probably rules out a future Guardians movie. With Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, The Black Panther, and much more on the horizon, there are endless possibilities for Howard's next big role.
Hopefully it will be sooner, rather than later.
