I'm sure though that Disney could put out a better Howard the Duck movie since they must've perfected the duck, rather than these quack special effects people who made Howard's movie.

Those "quacks" were George Lucas and Lucasfilms.

I loved the comic book but avoided the movie like the plague that it was. Funny thing is, Disney successfully sued Marvel claiming that there were too many similarities between Howard the Duck and Donald. It was a ludicrous lawsuit but the Mouse won. Howard was forced to don pants in an hilarious issue that parodied Disney's stupidity. I never thought I'd see the day when Howard and Donald served the same master (or Skywalker, for that matter).

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
