In the latest installment in Disney's live-action remake frenzy, Hercules has been announced as their next project, and everyone is saying the same thing about the cast...

Hercules is a Disney classic.

First released back in 1997, the animated movie retells the historic tale of the Roman hero and god, Hercules.

The ancient tale of Hercules was spun into a feature-length animated movie...

And showed the Roman god, Hercules, rescuing the love of his life while defeating the evil lord of the underworld, Hades.

Ancient Greek mythology was expertly brought to life...

And today, it remains one of the firm favorites of the Disney Renaissance period.

Now, as most of you will have noticed...

In the last couple of years, the minds over at Disney have been revamping their Renaissance masterpieces. Several of their classics, such as Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, and The Lion King have been reworked into live-action movies, and they have been a roaring success.

People are loving these live-action remakes...

And their latest project has got Disney fans very excited.

Last week, Hercules was confirmed as their next live-action venture.

And Anthony and Joe Russo, the brothers who directed Avengers: Endgame and a handful of other Avengers movies, are officially slated to produce the live-action remake of Hercules, the Hollywood Reporter confirmed.

People are undeniably very excited for a Hercules reboot...

And there is so much room for discussion regarding the cast.

People have been incredibly vocal on who they want to portray their favorite characters...

The matter has been taken very seriously.

For the role of Hercules?

Well, Twitter users are currently bickering over Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Tom Holland.

And for Hercules' love interest, Meg?

The vast majority of people are screaming for Ariana Grande to step up to the role... Though it's a massive no from me. Pop stars just don't make good actors, will we never learn from our mistakes?

And as for Hades?

Many believe that Johnny Depp will provide the perfect gothic, yet slightly comical portrayal of the lord of the underworld.

Hades' comically demonic sidekicks, Pain and Panic have also been cast in the minds of Twitter users...

I have to admit, Jonah Hill and Michael Cera would be perfect.

And, of course, Lizzo just has just be on the bill.

Someone will have really missed an opportunity if she isn't.

But there is one resounding theme amongst these cast discussions...

Will Danny Devito be making his come back?

Hercules fans far and wide are hoping and praying that Danny Devito will reprise his role as Phil.

The half-human, half-goat Satyr, Phil, was voiced by Devito in the 1997 original, and people cannot imagine his character any other way.

Devito has an undeniably unique voice...

And people are having a hard time imagining the character of Phil without Devito's husky New York accent.

It is of the utmost importance that Devito returns to the role of Phil.

Because, if not, people will riot.

And people are so passionate about the cause that Devito has been trending on Twitter...

Among the other famous figures in Greek mythology. 2020 is strange.

Though some people have slightly different ideas...

Devito as the lead role of Hercules? Heck, I'd pay good money to see that.

Devito himself is yet to comment on whether he's interested in returning to the role or not...

So for now, we can only hope. But there is a movie that the beloved actor is interested in remaking... Keep scrolling for the full details.
