If the Marvel Cinematic Universe needs an oafish roustabout like Anchorman’s Ron Burgundy, then Hercules is the guy to go to. Marvel’s take on the demigod Hercules is a hero that takes carousing and imbibing as seriously as he does saving the day. While he’s definitely not as big of an egomaniac as Burgundy (and he probably can’t play jazz flute as well as the Will Ferrell character), any live-action adaptation of Hercules needs to have unearned gravitas and over the top confidence — and that film needs big gags to put the leading man in its place. Of course, McKay would need a Hercules that could alternate between being jovial and intimidating; if Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt give his Parks and Recreation co-star Nick Offerman some tips on how to develop abs on abs on abs, there’s your Hercules. And really, any movie starring Ron Swanson in a green mini skirt needs a comedy master like Adam McKay behind the camera.
