Default Howard the Duck one-shot

I may be the only person who would want this, but I think some sort of animated short featuring Howard would be a great one-shot to go onto the Guardians blu-ray.
I understand his cameo was only a joke, and he most likely will never appear again anytime soon, but if Marvel has proven anything it's that no property or idea is to out-there for them to tackle. I'd love some short, quirky cartoon that explains how he went from Duck-world into the hands of the Collector.
Would anyone else be interested in this, or am I alone here?

I've always been a fan of Howard...have just about every comic he appeared in (4 color and giant size B/W) and watch the movie every couple of years. I would love to see more of him.

Never read any comic with him in it, but I saw the 86 movie on sale at Hastings so I bought it and watched it last week. It was about as bad as I expected lol.
I'd love a reference to that film if they ever made a one-shot.
Maybe, after a long day working at his new job as a marketing executive, he was sucked out of his apartment in duckworld by the convergence that happened in Thor: TDW.

I want the one-shot but in my mind it should be live action.
I don't want Marvel mixing their MCU that way.

while I agree a live action one-shot with a full cgi character might be a little bit too expensive for what is basically a glorified dvd extra.

Are a lot of the costs covered once the character is already created and has a working model?
Heck maybe the added cost is covered by them skipping the one-shot on WS.

Hell yes! That would be a tremendously fun one shot for a blu-Ray. My wife loved the Howard cameo. She was like "What the heck is he doing here?" She remembered the film from when she was a kid. This is exactly the kind of thing that would make great one-shots. More in the line of "Hail to the King"; my personal favorite one-shot!

That or agent carter are my favorite one shots. And you can tell they were starting to put more and more money into them, the production values got a lot higher.
I really think you might be able to pull off a live action one if you use an animatronic or a suit similar to the one used in the 86 movie (albeit a much nicer looking one). Im not sure about the cost of cgi, but truthfully I don't think it looked so great in that one shot so they'd have to do some improvements.
That's why I think animated would be the best route. He's a fun, goofy character not meant to be taken seriously so I think animation would be an appropriate way to go. It's an inconsequential dvd extra so I don't think mixing the two mediums of live action and cartoons would be an issue.
Heck, maybe combine the two and have an animation/live action hybrid like who framed roger rabbit ? Idk I'm just spitballing here.

I wouldn't want a full blown one shot for him, no.


Would rather have one revolving around Cosmo becoming security chief of Knowhere w/ Howard the Duck making an appearance. Along with other cosmic characters.

Actually it would make sense to have a Howard one-shot for the Guardians Blu/DVD. It would be a missed opportunity to not have one. Knowing Marvel's/Disney's recent uh...history with home video releases and special features I don't think it is going to happen.

I want to see something animated based on Howard. I'd like to see Matt Groening involved, or someone with a good feel for contemporary satire. No Seth McFarlane!

It's a shame that George Lucas ruined Howard's reputation so much that so many people dismiss the possibility of Howard being in another film. I'd love to see him in the next Guardians of the Galaxy film as an actual character.

I actually think that Howard's tarnished reputation could help the character more than hinder it. I mean yeah that movie was awful, but it was so long ago that it's almost a lovable memory to some and an interesting footnote in pop culture. Personally I think that movie is significant as it is the first real sign of Lucas not being the cinematic genius people assumed he was, but that's another conversation.
That aside, I wouldn't want him to appear in any theatrical cut of a movie. He should stay in the world of one-shots or side stories, I would be hesitant to see how the audience would react to a talking duck in a movie with Iron man.
But hey, then again they accepted it with a raccoon so you never know.

I think it is safe to assume at this point that Marvel has no plans to produce any more one-shots. With 26 episodes of Netflix shows, 30 episodes of prime time TV, and 3 movies per year, the one-shot well may have run dry.

I'd rather see him get his own movie (a proper one this time) again, but I wouldn't mind a One Shot.

it is just a matter of resources and expanding in the right places. I won't give up on them, they were a great pool for ideas. without the one-shots AoS and AC wouldn't have happend.

I don't see why they couldn't append a Howard the Duck short in front of a movie in the future a la Pixar
