Thor Love and Thunder Confusing Hercules Scene Explained by Writer
Remember Hercules from Thor Eleven, Thunder. Somehow Marvel Studios forgot to give him a poster, even though tons of other characters from everything else are literally pointless. Skip posters. Yeah. Let’s talk about Hercules.
Legitimately forgot Hercules was in the post-credits up until well, I saw this interview, I was like, all right, Hercules.
Yeah. So this comes at us from the director of Thor Love and Thunder, Tika White TD, who talked to up rocks, and he specifically talked a little bit more about Hercules.
Once again, he reiterated that he did not know who Hercules was or that he was even part of Marvel Comics prior to being asked to, well, add the character to the film.
But then this was followed up by the writer of the film talking a little bit more about it as well. And essentially what the writer revealed was that this thing was kind of kept from everybody up until they decided, hey, Hercules is going to be in this.
And it was Kevin Feige that decided it way late in production and that they had an actor in mind and hey, just write this in there, put Hercules in. And everybody kind of stood there staring at each other, looking a little bit confused because as it was stated before, they did not know that Hercules was going to be in this thing.
Like, nobody legitimately knew. The producer, the writers, the director, they didn’t know up until they were told in like the 11th hour.
Then the writer also revealed that when it comes to including Hercules, they just did what they were told. They have no idea what the character is all about.
They just did what Kevin told them because they believed there might be an idea for this character, but they weren’t told about a direction or what really the plan is, or even if they were going to be involved with it at all going forward.
So it’s one of those things, and they just hope that it came out well in the final product. Tyre then also added that this is one of those things where he just hopes that the character in the MCU opens up a whole other world of things that come along with him because, well, he’s Hercules, so who knows what that means? Maybe Aries, maybe more Zeus, and more Greek gods. I mean, take a pick. It’s the pantheon of gods from Greece.
There are so many of them. It’s like endless. I mean, you could tie this even to the eternal. You can do so much that you can really do something interesting with it. Let’s just hope that the next time they decide to drop Hercules into something, the people actually know that it’s going to happen, so it doesn’t come out of anywhere. And then Marvel forgets to actually release posters or materials on him.
