I like your idea. Butler would be a good choice to play Marvel's Hercules.

I was actually coming in to this thread to recommend that but for the life of me I couldn't think of his name...I just kept picturing the dude from 300 in my head

That makes sense.

Did you know that Leonidas (the character Butler played in "300") was supposed to be a descendant of Hercules?

Maybe so. If Butler were to play Hercules it would certainly explain the resemblance.

I think that Joe Mangilew/e is better, he must bulk up a little though.

@bigcimmerian: yeah bulked up... so long as he is bigger than Thor i think its important that if they were to bring herc into a film that his very presents illustrates strengths and power that when others look at him they go 7&$%... Thors got the hammer and lighting let herc take the spotlight for strength and power

I agree.

Whomever would play Hercules can be of approximately the stature as Thor but should be physically bigger/more muscular to emphasize his superior strength.

If Hercules does show up in a Thor movie then he'd better give Thor his customary Prince of Power greeting of a super powered fist to the face, haha

anyone can play Hercules these days. The special effects in films are at a stage it could amend the physicals. Look at Hulk, Planet of the apes and so on.

Since Hercules essentially looks human (unlike the Hulk and the apes in "Planet of the Apes") it wouldn't make sense to use CGI/special effects in place of an actual actor. The actor should, imo, physically and facially look the part while any feats of strength or demonstration of power could/should be presented using CGI/special effects.

What about Brad William Henke

No, not Henke. He's not handsome enough.
