Disney Adds Tom Hiddleston To Casting Wish List for Hades in Live-Action ‘Hercules’. According to a source close to WeGotThisCovered.com, Disney is not only making plans for a live-action Hercules, but has already started compiling a casting wish list and eyeing some actors from Marvel Studios.
Already rumored to be looking at Alexander Skarsgard to play the mighty Hercules, Disney seems to also be interested in several actors to play his nemesis, Hades. The latest rumored casting hope goes to the God of Mischief himself, Loki, aka Tom Hiddleston. It is currently unknown if Disney has approached Hiddleston about the role, but if they have, it is being kept out of the public eye.
Tom Hiddleston is not the only star they are eyeing for the role, and it seems the House of Mouse is very interested in seeing Hiddleston move from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and join the Disney Universe in the live-action remake.
Rumors began swirling a little over a month ago that both Benedict Cumberbatch and Trevor Donovan were on Disney’s wish list to portray the Lord of the Underworld, with Donovan sharing that he is secretly up for the role, but “isn’t supposed to say anything.” It now appears Disney is also adding Hiddleston to the roster of potential badies.
Until the role of Hercules is cast, it is likely Disney will wait to cast any of the supporting roles. There is no word yet who may play characters such as Megara (Meg), Phil, Pain, Panic, The Muses, or Zeus and Hera.
What would your dream cast look like for a live-action Hercules? Do you think Tom Hiddleston would be a good choice for Hades? What other Disney Movies would you like to see made into live-action films? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
