Spoilers ahead for the post-credits sequence in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” folks! That means if you’d rather not know, turn away now and know you’ve been warned/don’t yell at us for using your eyes.
OK, good? Now, onto the fun bits: you know that wee moment after the final credits rolled in “Guardians”? It brought us that funny little moment between The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) and old-timey Marvel standby Howard the Duck? Yeah, well, just like all the other amazing easter eggs in that movie, ol’ Howard over here has a surprising celebrity voice attached to him. “Robot Chicken” creator and apple of this particular writer’s tweenage eye, Seth Green.
The news was confirmed by James Gunn by way of Ain’t It Cool News. Green, who has plenty of experience voicing characters and dealing with bizarre be-feathered creatures voiced the wee cameo, of course inciting fans of the oft-maligned but well-beloved character. Even Gunn himself explained is thusly to Ain’t It Cool: “I love Howard the Duck!”
So, that’s a pretty neat lil thing, ain’t it? Oh those Marvel in-jokes. Between Nathan Fillion, Rob Zombie, and numerous others, who wasn’t in this Marvel movie, eh?
