Then last year saw James Gunn include Howard in the post-credit scene for Guardians of the Galaxy.
While Gunn has said there are no plans for a Howard The Duck movie, George Lucas recently stated he thinks Marvel will remake it.
"Even Howard the Duck is a cult classic," Lucas said at the Borough of Manhattan Community College theater for the Tribeca Film Festival, reports THR. "I have a feeling that Marvel's gonna redo it because of the technology they have today."
Lucas had reservations back in '86 about Howard The Duck being any success as "you can't put a dwarf in a duck suit and make it work!" However, now Lucas has changed his tune.
"It's a digital duck. When you have a digital duck, you can do anything. You can make it act," Lucas said of Gunn's version.
Marvel Comics also recently launched a Howard The Duck comic book.
