During the Vudu Viewing Party for Avengers: Infinity War, directors Anthony and Joe Russo told a fan who they would give immortality to.
The question was sent to the Avengers’ official twitter account that asked the brothers which character they would make immortal:
@Russo_Brothers if you guys had the power to give one character the ability of immortality, who would it be? #VuduViewingParty
The answer was rather surprising but none the less entertaining:
Howard the Duck. He should never die. – Russo Brothers #InfinityWar #VuduViewingParty

Howard the Duck first gained mainstream attention in 1986 when a feature film adaptation of his character was released to theaters. Sadly the film was one of the decade’s most infamous box office bombs and is often credited as the film that sent the superhero/comic book adaptation genre back years. In addition, it also happened to be the first major blight on the reputation of George Lucas who served as an executive producer on the film. The character would later make an appearance during the post-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy and had a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And from the sound of things, the Avengers directors never want to see the character removed from any Marvel Universe.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt, Danai Gurira and Letitia Wright. Here’s the official synopsis:
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War is available on Digital HD and will be avalible on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on August 14, 2018.
20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox Acquisition
< ?xml encoding="UTF-8"???>
So the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.
Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.
Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
