Kevin Smith says more about the future series Howard The Duck
Considered as a gigantic nanard, Howard… a new breed of hero has also acquired the status of a cult film. All the more reason for it to return, finally, on the airwaves, but in a way a little different.
If you have between 35 and 40 years, you probably remember that Sunday evening, around 18h, when, innocently, you turned on the television on Canal + to see the great movie of the end of the afternoon before This Cartoon. Movies a little familieux, not too violent, when suddenly, you fall on Howard… a new breed of hero.
And then, shock, trauma, misunderstanding, tears. Instead of a duck nice we are left with a soûlard who plays the guitar and tries to get the mother to Marty McFly, in the face of a scientist who becomes a big monster disgusting. You have not changed but yet you know you are different at the end of the film : welcome to the world of the great.

Howard in 2014
“The times we live in deserve a speaker who is able to identify all the quacks in the system, a maverick who won’t let us pay the bill. Thanks to Marvel and Hulu, I’m going to be able to do stupid things with one of my favorite characters. Let’s be honest : I don’t have enough talent for me to take care of the lesser Avengers, but Howard, clearly it is in my ropes. Even if the real brains of the business, it is a giant of the movie : Dave Willis of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Therefore, prepare yourself to do you well be shot !”
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
A Kevin Smith hyper motivated as we see it, and who has every reason to be if Hulu guarantees them freedom of your total. All that, in fact, Aqua Teen Hunger Force still has a status of implementation of worship today in the United States, Howard the duck , therefore, puts all the chances on his side to become one of the must-sees of the future. And that is really all that we hope for.
