GIGANTIC FREAKING SPOILER ALERT! If you have not seen Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy you may want to wait before proceeding any further in this post. We will not discuss the central premise, but we are going to explain and showcase one major reveal certain cinema diehards may not want to see outside the theater. You have been warned.
Marvel has had a long history of including additional sequences after the credits of each film. Sometimes these scenes reveal a major plot development for a future story and other times they poke fun at the comic book universe we have all grown to love. As of late, Marvel has been excluding the post credits sequence from press screenings so that a few surprises remain unspoiled for general audiences, but thanks to someone with a camera phone the biggest studio in hollywood’s latest reveal has just went public.
Guardians Of The Galaxy opens nationwide on August 1, but somewhere in the world screenings are taking place today with the previous withheld post credit scene included. Someone attending one of these early screenings took the time to whip out their phone, break Marvel’s no recording policy, and capture the reveal awaiting audiences at the very end of the film. This is where I add a ‘read more’ so nothing is spoiled for anyone passing by…
Are you ready? IT’S HOWARD THE DUCK. Yes, Howard the freaking Duck. Marvel’s most obscure and often bullied property has been brought to life in what looks to be gorgeous CG for one hilarious moment opposite The Collector (Benicio Del Toro). You can view the sequence below:
Our review of Guardians is not going to be live until Friday, but I will tell you right now it’s fast-becoming my favorite Marvel film of all time. You need to see this film on the biggest screen you can find. Don’t miss out.
