Despite its imminent release, not much is actually known about Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk. With the titular hero’s role as a superhuman lawyer and a lack of concrete information, it seems the Disney+ release could see any number of infamous Marvel characters grace the small screen. Now, a foreign publication is hinting that one of the more interesting potential surprise appearances on the show could be fan-favorite miscreant Howard the Duck.
A Twitter user was able to spot a blurb in the March/April issue of the French Scrooge McDuck magazine which teases the inclusion of Howard in She-Hulk. Normally, something like this could be written off as a publisher’s mistake, but this is a magazine that must be approved by Disney directly before they are allowed to publish anything.
Here’s a rough translation from the segment teasing his appearance:
In any case, the She-Hulk series which lands this year on Disney+ could hold some “what the duck” surprises! This should delight lovers of this turbulent duck, determined to do as he pleases.
Of all the places for Howard to end up in the MCU, She-Hulk isn’t actually that far of a stretch. After all, Jennifer Walters will be dealing with the legal aspects of the Marvel Universe, and Howard does have a history working as a private investigator. The series is also confirmed to be a comedy, which matches what we’ve seen from Howard in his short cameos on What If…? and the Guardians of the Galaxy films. Seth Green, the man behind the duck, also recently confirmed to Murphy’s Multiverse that he was open to playing the character again in the near future. Perhaps the voice actor knew something he wasn’t allowed to talk about yet, but only time will tell for certain.
