James Gunn managed to bring Howard the Duck back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the fans loved him for it. Even though the 80s film was a complete failure, fans still love Howard the Duck, and after he appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy, fans wanted to see more of him! A lot of fans were talking about how they wanted a new Howard the Duck movie.
Well, it looks like Marvel is actually going to entertain the idea! Lea Thompson, who starred in the original film revealed that she is going to pitch a Howard the Duck movie that she wants to direct. She tells the Inquisitr:
"Oh my god, from your lips to God's ears. I don't know. To tell you the actual truth, I am going to Marvel to pitch Howard the Duck, a new movie."
She then goes on to reveal that the meeting is set to take place in three weeks!
"In like three weeks. I want to direct the Howard the Duck remake [laughs]. Why not dream big, right?"
You know what? I hope that she has a great pitch meeting because it would be pretty rad to see Howard the Duck get a new movie that was actually properly done. It could be one of the greatest things ever!
If there was ever a chance of a Howard the Duck movie happening, this is it! If it doesn't happen with Thompson, it probably won't happen at all. This whole thing just seems inspired.
