*Now that Ariel has been cast in Disney’s live-action reboot of “The Little Mermaid,” social media is debating about who should tackle the role of King Triton, the patriarch in the undersea adventure. 

With Halle Bailey of Chloe x Halle announced as the film’s star, Terry Crews says he’s the perfect pick for the role of Ariel’s dad.

The 50-year-old posted a hilarious image of himself photoshopped with a tail and fin while holding a trident and floating in front of the kingdom of Atlantica. He added the hashtags: #ArielsGotTerry and #AmericasGotTerry (see the Instagram embed below)

Meanwhile, a rather convincing new poster from BossLogic imagines Idris Elba as the king of the oceans, per comicbook.com

The poster shows Elba sporting a golden crown with long white hair and a beard, and holding the golden trident.

BossLogic posted the poster on Twitter, with the caption: “So are we getting @idriselba as King Triton now? #TheLittleMermaid” — see the art below:

Elba is not rumored for the role of King Triton, and the only confirmed cast so far are Awkwafina as Scuttle and Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, with Melissa McCarthy reportedly in talks to play the villain Ursula.

Disney’s live-action “The Little Mermaid” currently has no release date.
