Maybe, As Long As There’s No Dolph Lundgren…

Variety reports new live-action He-Man movie in development.


Okay, this might not suck.

In the beginning, before there was a cartoon, Masters of the Universe action figures had little story books that were a hell of a lot cooler than that crappy show or movie ever were. The books (dubbed “Mineternia” by fans, were a pretty cool mish-mash of pulpy concepts: a heaping dose of Robert E. Howard’s Conan, another dose of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “John Carter of Mars” books, a dash of Jules Verne, a bit of steampunk, and voila!: the coolest concept in toys in a long time. That show ruined it so bad…

Maybe, with the success of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, “300”, etc, just maybe this could be worth waiting for.

  1. The DC Comics ver. was FAR superior (as always) to the Marvel title run. In the DC Ver. it was exactly as you had explained it. Low fantasy, sword & sorcery, super science. It was an influenced by that awesome cartoon Thundarr.

    But about the old live action movie. Two things..
    1 – Frank Langella rocked as Skeletor
    2 – I REALLY want to bang the hell out of Evil Lynn in the movie……

  2. 1- Not too bad, yeah.
    2- Ditto (when I was young).
