D23 Expo '22: Walt Disney Studios Panel LIVE Blog - Could A HERCULES Cast Announcement Be Imminent?

We're at the D23 Expo and with Disney Studios about to get started with their big presentation, there's a lot of buzz saying we could be on the verge of getting a formal cast announcement for Hercules!

For the first time ever, ComicBookMovie is in attendance at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, where we're expected to receive major updates regarding the future of Walt Disney Studios. 

The exclusive event is highlighted by two major studio presentations, the first of which will shine a spotlight on the highly secretive Disney Live Action, Pixar Animation Studios, and Walt Disney Animation Studios slate. 

While we don't know what to expect, there's a strong probability that we'll get updates and possibly new trailers for Hocus Pocus 2Strange WorldDisenchanted, Haunted MansionThe Little Mermaid, and Elemental. As for any major reveals, expect to get some sort of first look at Rachel Zegler as Snow White and there's a good chance they'll unveil who will be playing the title role in Guy Ritchie's upcoming Hercules

There isn't much known about the live-action Hercules, but in addition to Guy Ritchie directing, the film will be produced by Avengers: Endgame director Joe and Anthony Russo, with David Callaham penning the script. It's also expected to feature songs from the original 1997 animated film, albeit with a modern twist.
