James Gunn has been teasing something truly insane for his after-credit scene in Guardians of the Galaxy, and if this leaked clip is real, heâs truly outdone himself. Seriously.
Beware of potential spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy!
Still here? A leaked clip allegedly recorded during a preview screening of the film has popped up online, showing a truly bizarre bit of footage that may or may not be the âpure joyâ after-credit scene that Gunn has been hinting toward the past several months. If it is, we could definitely understand the description.
Fair warning before you go in, though. The quality is sub-par, and thereâs a guy screaming and having what sounds possibly like a very awkward orgasm in the background ... but the footage is still quite legible.
We wonât spoil it before you watch, so check it out below:
Yeah. Go ahead and watch it again. Thatâs right, the footage apparently shows Benicio Del Toroâs beaten Collector with (what appears to be) Cosmo the dog licking his wounds. But who else is he talking to? Howard the Duck, one of Marvelâs long-forgotten characters that we honestly thought would never pop up again. But this is a film with a talking raccoon and warrior tree, so itâs about the only place a WTF cameo from Howard might actually fit.
Weâll go ahead and throw in the disclaimer that there is some pushback as to the legitimacy of the clip, with some folks even saying Marvel mightâve purposefully leaked the footage as a fakeout (since the after-credit scenes were not included in press screenings).
What do you think? Is this legit?
