Masters Of The Universe Reboot: Still A Thing
Oh, Sony Pictures. Will you never learn?
According to The Wrap, David S. Goyer is in talks to direct the movie he helped to write, Masters of the Universe.
For those unfamiliar, Masters of the Universe is based on an a wildly popular line of toys and animated series from the 80s (Ask your parents) called He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. On Eternia, the forces of evil lead by Skeletor, a fairly beefy and muscular skeleton-man, set out to conquer Castle Grayskull and rule the world, and it's up to Prince Adam to stop them. Fear not, because the good prince has the ability to magically transform into the even beefier hero, He-Man, who rides an also magically transformed giant green tiger and together they will defend the good people of Eternia from said evil.
As a writer, Goyer is either hit or miss and never between the two shall meet. He's written such movies and TV shows as The Dark Knight trilogy, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Constantine (TV), Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. Quite the list, I know. As a director though, this would arguably be the biggest project to his credit, as he previously directed Blade: Trinity, which he also wrote. Apparently, he's the writer Eternia deserves, but maybe not the one it needs right now.
As long as Dolph Lundgren plays King Randor aka Prince Adam's father, I'll be able to deal with whatever else is in movie. Afterall, it can't be as bad Masters of the Universe '87. Forgive me, Dolph.
Masters of the Universe hits theaters on December 18, 2019
