Marvel Studios released its Christmas and Halloween-themed specials last year, and given that it's the new year, fans can expect that DCU will do the same. It’s February, and it’s almost Valentine's Day. One of the DC offerings that were promised in 2022 is the release of Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day Special this year. If you are a big fan of Harley as well as Poison Ivy, you need to tune in to this one. To make it more exciting, an actor from the MCU has been announced to appear in the upcoming DC special.
Thor: Love and Thunder were one of the MCU Phase 4 projects last year, and one of the memorable scenes from the movie is Ted Lasso’s Brett Goldstein huge Marvel cameo as Hercules. Goldstein’s Hercules appeared to threaten Chris Hemsworth’s Thor as a promise to his father, Zeus (Russell Crowe), who’s still upset with the God of Thunder.
Marvel has an endless list of projects that will remain committed to the comics, and given that Hercules is part of the Avengers in the comics, he is most likely to pop up in future MCU offerings. For now, as fans wait to see when that will be, Goldstein is expected to grace DC’s upcoming Valentine’s Day Special.

According to Gizmodo, which shared an image from Entertainment Weekly, the Ted Lasso star will be making a topless appearance in the DC special, not as Roy Kent himself but as his real self, Goldstein. Fans hope that the actor’s upcoming cameo in Harley Quinn will open opportunities for him to play any major DCU roles in the future.
Given that James Gunn is currently rebuilding the DC Universe with new actors as he recently unveiled his plans for Chapter 1 of the franchise, Goldstein might have a spot on the roster if he or fans campaigned for him enough.
The Valentine's Day special’s official logline wrote, “The special will feature Harley and Ivy celebrating their very first Valentine’s Day together, while also revealing how the rest of the ragtag crew spends the gushiest, mushiest, most romantic day of the year.”
