Masters of the Universe Header

Big screen adaptations of cartoon nostalgia aren’t completely out of the norm these days, Transformers being one of the most popular ones having four films already released, with a fifth and spinoffs on the way. Now, another animated series is being turned into a live-action film, although this one is more of a reboot of the original live-action film.

Sony has been developing He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, a reboot of Masters of the Universe, the 1987 live-action film, which was based on the popular 1980’s He-Man animated series. After going through a number of writers and directors, the studio has finally settled on a writer. According to a new report, Thor screenwriter Christopher Yost has been tapped to pen the script. More on this story below.

The Art of He-Man review
The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
Written by Tim & Steve Seeley with James Eatock
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: April 28, 2015
Cover Price: $39.99

The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is, at its core, a love letter to the best toy franchise in the history of the world. Yes, I am a HUGE He-Man fan, and yes, I’m biased. But, at the very least, you have to respect a toy line that didn’t come from another medium, took on a life of it’s own, and made literally BILLIONS of dollars for the Mattel toy company and has continued on, in one form or another, to this very day.

‘Masters Of The Universe’: Rian Johnson, Joe Cornish On Rumored Shortlist To Direct

Masters of the Universe

Sony Pictures’ long-in-development live-action reboot of Masters of the Universe recently lost its latest director when Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), who had signed on to the project in the summer of 2012, departed to make the next G.I. Joe sequel. Back in October Pirates of the Caribbean and The Mask of Zorro co-writer Terry Rossio was hired to pen a new draft after a previous effort by Alex Litvak (Predators) and Mike Finch didn’t pass muster with the studio.

This reboot is apparently of great importance to the franchise-famished Sony because they have put together a list of potential directors to take over for Chu, and if this list is genuine, then Masters of the Universe could turn out to be pretty damn great after all.

Masters of the Universe

We’ve been hearing about a new He-Man movie for longer than I care to remember, with seemingly countless names shifting in and out of duty trying to make it happen. Columbia Pictures is still determined to make Masters of the Universe a reality, and so they are now enlisting the help of someone with big time blockbuster and franchise experience on their resume.

It’s being reported that Terry Rossio has been brought in to work on the He-Man script, following the many others who have tried their hand.

Funko Skeletor

In the coming months, Funko will be releasing tons of ’80s-themed vinyl POP! figures to decorate the shelves of your geek lair. From He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra: Princess of Power: He-Man, Skeletor, She-Ra, Hordak, and a personal favorite of mine, Spikor. I’m going to go broke buying up these endlessly cute, absurdly awesome vinyl toys!

In addition to the Masters of the Universe gang, we’ve got collectables of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and ’80s pop culture mainstays for RoboCop, Aliens, and Predator. Hopefully they come out with additional Aliens designs for Ripley, Hicks, Newt, Hudson, and Vasquez! Not to mention, a POP! version of a power loader would be pretty epic.

You can pre-order Funko’s latest vinyl collectables (or check out what’s currently available) at the Entertainment Earth links here below; check out the designs here below too.

He-Man Image

A new movie based on the popular Mattel toy He-Man has been in the works for more years than anyone who’s been excited to see the movie cares to admit. For a number of reasons things just haven’t worked out, whether it was budgetary issues, script/story problems, and so on.

Last we heard, G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon Chu was in talks to be the next to take a swing at making a new He-Man movie, titled Masters of the Universe, a reality. Now Chu is talking about his excitement and plans for the movie, and you can read what he’s saying below.

‘Captain Power And The Soldiers Of The Future’ May Return To Television As ‘Phoenix Rising’

Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future

From time to time I find myself revisiting television shows and films that were integral parts of my childhood, but I haven’t actually sat down and watched in many years. For example, last week I watched The Monster Squad on a Blu-ray I had to bid $30 for on Ebay because the disc is no longer in print and it came as no surprise to me that the movie still holds up as charming, kickass entertainment for kids and adults alike 25 years after its less-than-stellar theatrical release.

My latest nostalgic obsession is a TV show that made its debut the same year as The Monster Squad and also suffered an unjust fate before it had the chance to grow into a beloved hit, a reputation that – like many movies and shows before it – has been redeemed over time thanks to an ever-increasing cult following.

I am speaking, of course, about Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future.
