This episode, we tap into the red-headed step-child of Marvel Comics movies: 1986's Howard the Duck. The first full-length movie based on a Marvel character, the movie was a box office and critical disaster. But have its feathers been unjustly ruffled? Jamie Williams joins us to discuss the movie's reputation, how it affected stars Lea Thompson and Tim Robbins, and the behind-the-scenes drama. We'll even explore if Marvel Studios should give Howard the Duck a second shot at the big screen.
