An early released product may have given a hint to a character who will be appearing in the summer blockbuster sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy. A character Monkeys Fighting Robots is very excited to see arrive. Which character may soon be helping the Guardians rock out as they kick evil alien butt?
His name is Darkhawk. The character received a 50 issue series in the 90s. After his cancellation, he showed up in the New Warriors, The Loners, and Avengers: Arena. The character also became a part of the War of the Kings crossover which allowed him to meetup with cosmic Marvel characters such the Kree, Nova, and of course the Guardians of the Galaxy. He may be arriving in Marvel Cinematic Universe on May 5th.
How did this reveal come about happen? How did such a tighter kept secret get out? Though this character has yet to be confirmed, the possibility of his appearance comes with evidence. Its another case of a product spoiling the ending to a film. In preparation for release of the new movie different merchandise appeared on the official marvel Amazon store. The following shirt was released, taken down, and the link to it from google is now broken. The item is not longer available anywhere else on the site and the Marvel part on the front of the web address means it was supposed to be on the official Marvel store.
Further evidence comes from the new Marvel Legends figure line. Darkhawk is one of the figures in this new line. Sounds like they may be preparing to have him around just in case fans want more of him right away.
