Even if that’s what that person believes the movie Hercules had Hades as a villain and he is basically the Greek version of the Devil :shock:

Hades was just the brother who drew the short straw. He's certainly not as evil as the devil.
He oversees a shadow realm rather than a type of hell.
The greek equivalent is Tartarus were people are punished such as Tantalus etc. They've villainised Hades slightly unfairly. :D

My bad, so he is the equivalent of Death then is what you’re saying, except with more pathos? :?

Nope . That was Thanatos. Hades was in charge of the region of the dead but not the moment as Death in discworld is.

Okay so not Burton but still not a bad combination. If its going to be Disney its never going to be as satirical and dark and it could be and in the absence of Burton those 2 don't seem bad choices. all of those Disney films I like :D
