Since 2014’s Guardians of The Galaxy, Howard the Duck has popped up here and there as an Easter egg for the die-hard fans. Voiced by Seth Green, Howard made his return this year, not in live-action, but in Marvel Studios’ first, animated project, What If…? The character played a supporting role in the T’challa Star-lord episode, but what many fans want to know is if there’s a potential solo project for the character in the future.
While there hasn’t been much about a potential Howard the Duck project, Lea Thompson, star of the original movie, has expressed interest in directing a reboot for the character over the past couple of years. But it seems like a solo project for the duck isn’t something Green would find all too interesting.
“I heard that she pitched it and I know that shes been directing a ton of stuff, I love the original but I gotta imagine that, and again this is just my imagination, I’ve always thought Howard works really well as part of an ensemble or in more of a co-star, the same way the Hulk does, you know? like the Hulk, making the whole Hulk movie is always more challenging, and I think Howards that kind of character. Hes good in a group.”
While Green seems to be entirely interested in Howard taking the spotlight, he definitely doesn’t seem to be against playing the character in a much larger capacity. With the Marvel Cinematic Universe spreading like wildfire in the next couple years, who knows where he could pop up next.
