Some Things Should Get A Second Chance

Steve Gerber's HOWARD THE DUCK was a great character and a great comic book, and no way it deserved the botched Lucas-produced film adaptation it got. That hideously- designed Duck suit didn't help any either. They should have used a more Gerber-faithful script, and if they were going to go the live-action route, at least gone to The Jim Henson company , and used puppets or full-body suits that actually LOOKED like the character, much like they did with the first TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES film. I think CGI these days would definitely make a more convincing Howard possible,
but I'm Betting Disney might not appreciate putting out a movie that seems like a parody of their OWN duck property. (Though technically, BOTH are Disney properties now)
