This idea just came up and I'm all like "make a post, see what peeps think". I wouldn't mind a Marvel Hercules. He'd have to appear in Thor though. Just gonna throw it out there that he joined the Secret Avengers in Civil War.
I'm open to the idea. I don't think it would be bad at all. It would be a good way to expand Marvel's mystical universe. I know we just came out with two Hercules movies this year though.
The Legend of Hercules - Kellan Lutz
Unfortunate for him though, he had signed on to audition for not one but TWO Marvel heroes. He was turned down for Thor and Cap. They just didn't see him as the whole package. Sorry bruh.
Hercules - Dwayne Johnson
I chose this picture because he looks like Black Adam, the DC villain that he will be playing.
If Marvel made Hercules, I'd imagine they would need another actor, but could they ask Dwayne or Kellan if they wanted their Hercules in the MCU? I highly doubt though, that after they just made a Hercules movie, that they'd do another one, but Marvelized.
Off the top of my head....
Gerald Butler would be my choice if Marvel did a Hercules movie and wanted to get an actor. 300! Yea boi!! This man was Leonidas
This man would smash a Hercules role! Only problem is that Marvel couldn't pick him. He's got Gods of Egypt, London Has Fallen, and Geostorm coming up. His schedule wouldn't be free.
I think this could be a potential story if Marvel wanted to take this route.
I did read an article about how Thor 3 could be the clone Ragnarok.
Hulk vs Hercules would be fun to see too.
Problem is I'm not sure how Hercules could be introduced into the MCU. He ain't just gon pop up like "Hi I'm Hercules! #IwillwhoopHulkandThor'sasses!Toodles!" hahaha
Haha well, I do have one idea. This would be a one-shot or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode. After the events of Age of Ultron, whatever they shall be, Thor is walking. Feeling broken, angered that mortal technology almost got the better of him. "THUNDERER! I WOULD HAVE WORDS WITH THEE!" Thor hears these words and recognizes the voice of Hercules. Norse, Greeks, and Egyptians can crossover. If you read Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson books and Kane Chronicles books, you'll know what I mean. The two would fight because that would be awesome!!!
Also, if Cap forms a new team, I know this is highly unlikely but say he replaces Thor with Hercules. Cap would know about Hercules I'm sure. S.H.I.E.L.D. has a file on him and Thor most likely told him about the Greeks.
Or a spiced up West Coast Avengers: Hawkeye, Mockingbird, War Machine, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Hercules. I know highly unlikely.
Or for some reason the Hulk finds himself in Greece, outside of Banner's control, destroying artifacts. Hercules ain't down wit dat.
Those are the ways I think Hercules can appear in the MCU should Marvel want to add him.
