20 Most Ridiculous Moments In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

19. Howard The Duck - Guardians Of The Galaxy

Marvel Studios

The Moment: In Guardians' post-credits scene, The Collector sits among his destroyed artifacts, when he's joined by not only Cosmo the Spacedog, but also Howard the Duck, who asks him, "What do you let him lick you like that for? Gross."

Howard then takes a sip of his drink, and as the image fades to black, he can be heard saying, "It burns going down."

Why It's Ridiculous: For one, it's Howard the freaking Duck, the comic book character immortalised so infamously by the George Lucas-produced 1986 flop, and it was a massive troll to all the fans who stuck around until the end of the credits, hoping to see a direct set-up for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

If you knew who Howard was ahead of time, you probably chuckled at the madness of it all, but if you had no idea, you were most likely just left baffled and annoyed that you "wasted" like 8 minutes of your life.
