For many folks that grew up in the 80s, one hero most adored was that of He-Man the hero of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. An animated series following the adventures of Prince Adam of Eternia, who through the power of Greyskull was bestowed superpowers and became He-Man.
Dolph Lundgren starred in a mediocre live-action adaptaion of the series in the late 80s, but the franchise hasn’t really been heard from since then. David S. Goyer, who is well-known for his work on multiple DC comics projects was set to bring a new version of Masters of the Universe to the screen, but has since left the project.
Carlos Huante, worked on the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon, and was involved with Goyer’s project recently spoke with HN Entertainment, and said what Goyer had planned was going to be an epic adventure. You can check out what he had to say below.
“I’m not going to talk too much about it, I know they’re making it still. But I’ll tell you it was… just the story of Greyskull and that sort of thing and there was some really cool stuff in there. I don’t think they’re gonna make that version. I know they’re not going to. It was like a Lord of The Rings film, it was huge! And there was all kinds of stuff in there, you could have divided up that script into three movies and it would have worked. That’s how big it was.

“It was a more fantastic version of Lord of The Rings, is what I’ll say. It’s a more colorful and fantastical version of Lord of The Rings, but it felt as real as Lord of The Rings. It was very real but very far-out. It was a final return to science fiction fantasy where we’ve only had one: Star Wars.”
I think this is a franchise that needs to be brought back, and it sounds like Goyer’s vision was just what it needed, unfortuantely it doesn’t appear we’re going to get that version of the story. A film is still being worked on with Adam and Aaron Nee set to direct a script being touched up by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.
