    Write a limerick using this as the starting line:
    "There once was a MARVELous Duck."

    One: Speak up and join the conversation- we encourage respectful debate.
    Two: Respect your community- racism, misogyny, homophobia and hate speech aren’t tolerated.
    Three: Don’t go looking for fights.
    Four: “Be nice.” - Dalton from Roadhouse

      There once was a MARVELous Duck,
      but audiences didn't give a cluck.
      While first bad, Marvel is now rad;
      but still, the duck is suck.

      There once was a MARVELous Duck,
      A web-footed hero with pluck.
      A cosmic disaster
      Made Howard come faster
      To stop a dark lord run amok.

    First *theatrical* feature-length film. Thirst feature-length Marvel Film was the original Dr. Strange in 1978.

    • Les

      +Matthew Young Very well. Ultimately, it all makes the MCU that much more impressive showing the actual potential of Marvel properties to be in great and successful films.

    • Matthew Young
      Matthew Young 9 days ago

      +Les I'm positive. Yes, the 15 part serial adds up to a complete film. So do seasons of "The Guild", which was a web series that's now offered as a set of feature-length films on Netflix. That doesn't make them movies just because they can be squished together to form the equivalent. The serials even had separate titles; because they were written as separate episodes.
      No, it *doesn't* count as a theatrical feature film. I very specifically noted that. That's why I said that Howard The Duck was the first *theatrical* feature-length film, and Doctor Strange was the first feature-length film.
      No industry-standard system or publication lists serials as feature-length films.

    • Les
      Les 9 days ago

      +Matthew Young Are you sure...think about it. A 15 part serial not only adds up to a complete film...but you need to purchase 15 movie tickets to see the whole thing making it a pretty expensive film to see...hmmm wonder what the inflation adjustment would make the profit of this serial?.....On the other hand...the "Doctor Strange" film from 1978 was a made for television deal...so, should it count as a theatrical feature-length film? It wasn't released to the theater!

    • Matthew Young
      Matthew Young 9 days ago

      +Les Correct. It still isn't classifiable as a feature-length film. Plenty of films are shot back all at once. Back To The Future II & III; for example. That doesn't make them one 4-hour movie, that makes them 2 movies that tell a complete story. Same way with the serials of old. They may have told one complete story, but they were each written to be, and were, distributed as separate features. A "Feature-length film" is something that written and distributed as a single feature lasting a minimum of 90 minutes.

    • Les
      Les 9 days ago

      +Matthew Young Yes, but if you string each short together to watch the whole story, it's a full length feature....That was the nature of serials back in the day. You had to go to the movies each week to see what happened next(usually how the hero survived the cliffhanger set up at the end of each segment) In 15 weeks you'd seen the entire film. Kind of the precursor to the miniseries.

    In my time, this movie was cheesy but good. Went to a comic book store the other day. A group of 3 young guys saw an action figure of Howard the Duck. They were asking among themselfs. Who is this guy? One answered, "The duck after the credit scene of Gardiens of the Galaxy". I jumped in the conversation, "Theres an 80s movie about that duck. Check it out, its called Howard the Duck". Those kids where amazed.

    Why does everything always have to feed into a conversation about the Avengers / Endgame .. Howard the duck was about years before that even existed. Not everyone is obsessed by the constant barrage of superhero movies we get these days.

    Holy crap, this movie blew rhino chunks!! Made me embarrassed to tell my friends I was a Marvel fan for a little while. The writers and creators had NO freaking clue what comic book writer Steve Gerber was doing with Howard in the comics to make him so successful, and came up with this steaming pile of aardvark feces instead.
