Some of the most popular movies in the world right now are based on comic books. For the kids stumbling on this, comic books are cheap magazines with illustrations and text bubbles that, when read in a sequence, create a story… Usually about super heroes punching their problems into space or whatever. Once considered to be juvenile entertainment only for children, they've now become the basis for basically anything you'll see at your local movie theater. It's not surprising then that many of the movies feature references directly to the source material-- Sometimes it's subtle, like a simple nod to a piece of artwork, and other times full storylines are adapted to the screen. Hey, while we're at it, when will Howard the Duck get another shot at the big screen? Great question. But for now we're happy with him appearing at all, even for a moment, in James Gunn's first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
