    I would watch buddy movies between Thor and Herc or Wonder Man and Beast.

    But I don't think Herc and Wonder Man have ever had much to do with each other.

In the comics. But in the movies, a new mythos is being forged. In the comics, Simon's brain patterns were used for the Vision. In the movies they weren't. There are many important differences between the comics and the movies. I'm OK with these differences because in most instances I know why they exist. In the comics, Hank Pym created Ultron. In the movies, Tony Stark and Bruce Banner did. In the movie universe, Hank Pym just isn't prominent enough and also is retired. Bringing him into the story to create Ultron when Tony and Bruce are very prominent, very active, and very available would have been silly. I accept these differences because they make sense to me.

    If the X-Men movies can use Wanda and Pietro I think the MCU should be able to use Hank McCoy.

That would be nice. But I don't think Marvel can use the Beast. They couldn't even acknowledge Wanda and Pietro as mutants.

However, I guess Marvel and Fox could work together to create a Wonder Man/Beast film. I'm just doubtful they have the requisite maturity and wisdom.

    All that said...I want Herc to get a movie. He's just a fun character.

Hercules needs to appear in something. There have been a couple recent Hercules films and all they did was make me yearn for Marvel's Hercules to stride onto the big screen.

But Wonder Man is cool too. Plus Marvel is easily juvenile enough to get a charge out of putting a "Wonder" character on the screen after the Wonder Woman movie made such a splash. ("Go ahead and tell us we don't have the right. We've been using him for decades.")
