It seems an Olympian will soon be added to the Marvel Cinematic Universe's roster of heroes!

In a new report from The Cinema Spot, Hercules is reportedly coming to the MCU in the near future. It's currently unclear whether the character will have a lead role in his own project or a supporting role.

This isn't the first time Hercules was involved in such rumors. It was previously speculated that he'll appear in Marvel's Eternals as the lead. However, this has since been debunked because Richard Madden will play the role of Ikaris.

Adapted by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965, Hercules made his debut in Avengers #10 in 1964 as Immortus' minion. His first formal appearance was in Journey into Mystery #1 in 1965. Hercules has been a long-standing character in Marvel Comics ever since, having regularly appeared in Thor and Avengers comics.

The outlet thinks Eternals, Loki, and She-Hulk would have "the most space" to introduce Hercules, given that he's a major character. The Eternals have superficial ties to the gods of Olympus, while the Loki series is expected to explore different parts and times of the multiverse. Hercules has a partnership with Amadeus Cho who later became Hulk. Should the latter appear in the She-Hulk series, there is also a possibility for Hercules to make an appearance.

Of course, this is just a rumor for now so fans should take this with a grain of salt.
