Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

The Guardians of the Galaxy have become Thor’s friends since they first met Avengers: Infinity War. Given how much Thor overshadows them in terms of power, the MCU needs to find creative ways to tell them apart. in the Thor: Love and Thunder, the Guardians of the Galaxy split off early on to deal with various emergencies across the universe, potentially leaving them occupied with threats as large as Gorr the God Butcher. But eventually, it’s possible that Hercules, on his quest to find the god that almost killed his father, might stumble upon the Guardians that he can use as bait to lure Thor in. This would flip the plot of Dark Olympians from the comics a bit. where the Guardians of the Galaxy released a captive Hercules and hunted down the corrupt family of Zeus.

Hercules Disney+ series

Perhaps an easier option for Hercules’ next appearance is via his own Disney+ series. Greek mythology is an ideal source of material as it is as vast as Asgard and remains unexplored by the MCU to this day. A Hercules The Disney+ series could follow the title character on his crusade to make the gods relevant again, but it could also take a look back at the early years of Hercules and reinterpret the mythical hero’s classic stories. It could therefore feature Russell Crowe’s Zeus, as well as other popular gods such as Ares and Hades, and show how Omnipotence City came into being or how the Olympians first interacted with the Celestials.

Alternative, Eternal 2 could show the same meeting between the Celestials and the Olympians, but from the perspective of the Celestials and the Eternals. In the comics, the Olympian gods and the Eternals agreed to coexist in harmony despite their similar characteristics. In the MCU, they could instead get into brawls, with Zeus and Hercules leading the Olympians against the beings they see as a threat to their divinity. The conflicting ideals between the Eternals and the Olympians are a major source of conflict, as the former vowed never to interfere in human affairs and the latter seemingly seeking nothing but admiration. Undoubtedly, their fight could be one of the most visually striking in the entire MCU.

The most obvious implication for Hercules’ next appearance is an eventual sequel to Thor: Love and Thunderwhich could focus on the staged one-on-one battle between Thor and Hercules. Thor: Love and Thunder In the first post-credits scene, Zeus orders Hercules to specifically hunt down Thor, suggesting that it won’t be long before Hercules finds Valkyrie, Thor, and new MCU character Love in New Asgard and demands a fight. The MCU has already used up most of Thor’s main villains, so pitting him against another god would be a good way to shake up Thor’s solo franchise.

However, there is also a possibility that Thor and Hercules will become allies once they meet. Together they could face enemies like the Midgard Serpent or Cul Borson or even a villainous Beta Ray Bill trying to take Thor’s place gate 5. Anyhow, Hercules may not remain Thor’s enemy for long, as the Olympian hero tends to side with the heroes in most realities of the Marvel Multiverse.


The Avengers 5

If there’s one movie that allows every Phase 4 character introduced so far to return, it’s the eventual sequel Avengers: Endgame. Even if it remains unconfirmed The Avengers 5 is one of the most anticipated events in the MCU’s new saga. An event that brings together all new and established heroes is only a matter of time, and Hercules is a good candidate for the superhero team that has joined many iterations of the Avengers in the comics. However, Thor: Love and ThunderThe Hercules post-credits scene suggests that Hercules is the perfect dark antithesis of Thor, which would make him an equally ideal member of the MCU’s Dark Avengers.
