'Hercules' Is Getting a Live-Action Remake, and Twitter Already Has Predictions for the Cast

Need something to boost your mood? Look no further, because you’ve come to the right place. As of like, today, Disney announced that Hercules—aka the gem of a movie that gave us the bops “Zero to Hero” and “I Won’t Say I’m in Love”—is getting a live-action remake, meaning you can once again see a fave childhood classic come alive on the big screen. And just when I thought I could give my Disney+ subscription a break!

All we know about the new Hercules so far is that Joe and Anthony Russo, the filmmakers behind the masterpiece that is Avengers: Endgame and Infinity War, are set to produce it. But since the internet is already spiraling over the news, people are letting their opinions be KNOWN for who they want to be on the cast list.

Of course, Ariana Grande is a huuuuuge front runner for playing Meg since she literally just performed “I Won’t Say I’m in Love” during The Disney Family Singalong two weeks ago, but we shall see!

Without further ado, here are Twitter’s best (and funniest) predictions for who will be in the Hercules live-action remake. Place! Your! Bets!!


From what it looks like, people online can’t seem to reach a consensus on who they want as their Hercules yet. Some want KJ Apa, some want Zac Efron, some want a Hemsworth brother, and I just want answers.

Dear Disney,

Please cast @ZacEfron as #Hercules in the Live Action movie.

Thank you in advance. pic.twitter.com/wo0LeIm7ai

Hey @Russo_Brothers I found your Hercules for the #Herculesliveaction ๐Ÿ™‚ pic.twitter.com/v27V7evh4o


Yeah…people are debating this one HEAVILY. Obviously the stans want Ariana to be Meg for how amazing she did in the singalong, but Liz Gillies (Ari’s Victorious costar who played Jade) actually looks a lot like the character. Plus, she can sing!

Okay but @LizGillies as Meg would be perfect. #Herculesliveaction pic.twitter.com/TxeLbkyejX

Twitter’s basically like, “Give me Danny DeVito, or give me death.”

Everyone is debating about who The Muses should be in the live-action Hercules, but the only casting choice I care about is pic.twitter.com/75C8UlW2Ru


Jeff Goldblum? Willem Dafoe? Tom Hiddleston??? The possibilities are endless, really.

All this talk about the live action Hercules and all I care about is Jeff goldblum playing hades pic.twitter.com/HfhZOIz8hi

If they do a live action Hercules, can we petition Willem Dafoe to play as Hades??? pic.twitter.com/xUy8reCNZ2

Tom Hiddleston will play Hades in Hercules

Pain and Panic

(I *personally* would love to see Michael Cera and Jonah Hill play these roles, so I’m throwing that out into the universe, TYVM.)

someone said Jonah Hill and Michael Cera should play pain and panic in the new Hercules movie and I can’t think of better casting pic.twitter.com/S7eKgoP8B8

If this live action Hercules nonsense is true… then hear me out… #Hercules pic.twitter.com/aGMmLymKn2

The Muses

These parts are arguably the soul of the entire movie!!! People have thoughts on this one, but the main one is that these girls need to be able to SING.

Since Hercules is being made into a live action film (and it’s my favorite Disney movie) here’s my casting choice for the Muses:

Amber Riley
Kelly Rowland
Jennifer Hudson
(Hear me out) SZA

If @Disney does make a live action remake of Hercules. These talented ladies would be my picks for the iconic muses:@MsAmberPRiley – [email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected] – Clio pic.twitter.com/vKPUi7wjzL
