1. Howard the Duck
James Gunn described Guardians of the Galaxy’s after-credits scene (which wasn’t shown to journalists at early screenings to avoid it being spoiled) as “pure joy”, and he wasn’t kidding. While it may not set up a future movie – unless Marvel are planning on giving him another solo outing – this appearance from Howard the Duck was very funny. It was also a nice nod to the original movie as that was released roughly around the same era that many of the movie’s fantastic songs were taken from. His redesign is excellent, and for those of you wondering, it has since been revealed that this version was voiced by Seth Green. Even if we never see Howard the Duck again, knowing that he’s part of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is hilarious, so hats off to Mr. Gunn for this credits stinger!
