'Masters of the Universe' Director Shares First Look at Teela in Battlesuit
The Masters of the Universe movie is moving forward. Director David Goyer has offered a sneak peek at Teela.
Goyer shared a photo on his Instagram page. The photo shows Goyer working with concept artist Carlos Huante. Goyer is pointing at a concept piece on a computer screen. Goyer jokes in his status that he’s looking for “more cowbell,” but the image is labeled as “Teela Battle Suit.”

Take a look below (via Omega Underground):

In the Masters of the Universe canon, Teela is the captain of the royal guard at the palace of Eternos. She both protects and trains Prince Adam of Eternia. She is unaware that Adam’s alter ego is the hero He-Man, though Teela often fights by He-Man’s side in battle.

Masters of the Universe has always blended fantasy with science fiction. The concept art seen here implies the new film will lean heavily on the science fiction side of things.
Masters of the Universe began life as a Mattel toy line launched in 1982. DC Comics launched a related comic book series the same year. The 1983 Filmation cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe made He-Man and his battle cry - “I have the power!” - a household name among children of the era.

Masters of the Universe has been adapted into a live-action feature film once before. Dolph Lundgren starred as He-Man in the 1987 film. The franchise has gone through a number of reboots in comics, toys, and television.
A reboot of Masters of the Universe has been in the making since at least 2007. The project has been trapped in development hell on several occasions. In 2016, McG was attached to direct the film but had left the project by mid-2017. Around the same time, Sony gave the film an official release date. The studio announced that Goyer would rewrite the script. Sony has not officially announced Goyer as director, but rumors suggest he is in talks.
Kellan Lutz was in contention for the role of He-Man. Sony hasn't made any casting announcements yet regarding the movie.

‘Masters of the Universe’ Hunts for a New Director as David S. Goyer Exits




Looks like Masters of the Universe will need a new master.
Sony Pictures is on the hunt for a new Masters of the Universe director after talks with David S. Goyer fell through. Goyer will stay on as executive producer and screenwriter.

Goyer had been in talks with Sony to direct Masters of the Universe since December, but was forced to drop out of the running due to other commitments, Variety reports.
The Batman v Superman writer originally came on board the project as the screenwriter in April. The draft that he turned in reportedly excited Sony so much that they hoped he would take on directorial duties as well, but Goyer passed due to his work on Foundation, an upcoming HBO miniseries adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s science-fiction novel series. Faced with the tight timeline for the movie’s production — Sony is aiming for a December 2019 release — Goyer wouldn’t have been able to juggle both projects.
Goyer’s script will still be used, even as he moves on to other commitments. Variety notes that Sony has been holding meetings with other candidates for the director’s seat. While it’s possible that a new director could scrap the script in favor of their own, the impending release date means it’s likely that the script is set in stone.
Masters of the Universe is a fantasy property based on a Mattel toy line about the warrior hero He-Man, who is tasked with saving the magical land called Eternia. It became a successful animated TV series from 1983-1985 before being adapted to the big screen as a 1987 film starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as the villainous Skelator. It’s a daunting task to don that furry loincloth and sword, but Twilight star Kellan Lutz was up for the task when McG was attached to direct. However, it seems likely that Sony will hire an entirely new cast. The studio was reportedly ready to begin talks with actors before Goyer fell out.
Masters of the Universe has been master-less for nearly two years now, after McG stepped down from the director’s chair in 2016. But the project has had a long, troubled journey to the big screen that began in 2009, when Warner Bros. dropped the property and Sony picked it up with Kung Fu Panda director John Stevenson attached to direct. After Stevenson left, G.I. Joe: Retaliation filmmaker Jon M. Chu came on board. The film fell apart, and the script was given a series of rewrites until McG came on board. And so on.

Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow

The director was attached to Masters of the Universe in 2014 and that's another project which has since gone through a few different filmmakers as the studio behind it struggles to find a tone that will work today. Wadlow's version was going to be more in line with Guardians of the Galaxy but the studio wanted a more straightforward fantasy tone which they believed would have worked better.
"I had a really irreverent take on Masters of the Universe, and the studio, at the time, was very focused on a Game of Thrones/Lord of the Rings take. I love He-Man. I still have all my original figures from the ‘80s. That’s how I got the job. I brought them in and put them on the table and was like, ‘This is why I’m a director!’ I wrote a scene where Prince Adam meets Ram Man and says to him, ‘So, they call you Ram Man, huh?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah.’ And he goes, ‘Do you like that name?’ And Ram Man goes, ‘I’m owning it.’ So, there was an irreverence to it, but at the time, that just didn’t gel with what they wanted to do.

"It’s interesting now, with Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy. I think that’s sort of what I was trying to do, but either I was too early or they just never saw it that way. That’s the weird thing about making movies in the studio system. You can have a take and a real point of view, but if it doesn’t line up with the point of view of the people who are writing the checks, it doesn’t matter. That’s why working with Jason [Blum] has been so fantastic. He’s changing the way that movies are made. He’s basically saying, ‘As long as we keep the budget down, it doesn’t matter what I think. I want you to do what you think is best.’"

‘Masters of the Universe’ Movie to Be Helmed by The Brothers Nee




He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is sure taking its sweet, celestial time in getting a live-action, big-screen reboot off the ground. You might even say it feels like an Eternia since we last got an update on Sony Pictures / Mattel’s planned production. The script for this reboot, once known as Grayskull, has passed through the word processors of such screenwriters as Justin Marks, Evan Daugherty, Mike Finch and Alex Litvak, Richard Wenk, Jeff Wadlow, and Christopher Yost to name a “few.” Such notable names as Jon M. Chu, Harald Zwart, Chris McKay, Mike Cahill, McG, and most recently, David S. Goyer were tapped to direct. But when Goyer passed on the project, the director’s chair was left vacant once more … until today.
Variety reports that the directing duo The Brothers Nee, otherwise known as Aaron and Adam Nee, will be at the helm of the sword-and-sorcery-meets-sci-fi adaptation. Goyer is currently credited as a screenwriter and executive producer on the project, which will be based on the popular 80s toyline from Mattel. The write-up also stresses that Goyer is “extremely involved” with the film’s development and only passed due to prior engagements, but little other information is available. The reboot currently has a December 18, 2019 release date, so obviously the plan is to get the cast into place soon so that it can enter into production and stay on schedule.

If you don’t know the Nee Brothers, you’re not alone. This project offers a major chance for the “rising stars” to capitalize on their critically acclaimed 2015 indie thriller Band of Robbers. I remain cautiously optimistic for this one, at least until I can get a handle on just what Goyer’s script and the Nee Brothers’ interpretation of it is going to look like. Let’s give Masters of the Universe a shot before we write it off completely, shall we?
Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will produce with DeVon Franklin. Matt Milam oversees for Sony. Fingers crossed!

MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: Surprising New Plot Details And Character Breakdowns Have Been Revealed

Some plot details and character descriptions for the upcoming Master of the Universe reboot have come our way, and fans should be prepared for a few major - and sure-to-be divisive - changes to canon...




We recently found out that Sony's upcoming Masters of the Universe reboot had gained a pair of new directors, and now thanks to That Hashtag Show we have a much better idea of which classic characters will appear, as well as some fairly surprising new plot details.

HELLBOY Concept Artist Unveils Horrifying Interpretations Of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Characters
The biggest alteration to the established animated series and comic book canon re-imagines He-Man and Skeletor as brothers!
In the upcoming film, King Randor will be presented as the great warrior-king of Eternia, a descendant of the Grayskulls, and the father of two sons: Adam and Keldor! As the film begins, Keldor is the chosen heir to the throne and his brother, Adam, is young, unfit and a bit of a black sheep.

Where Adam's relationship with his father is strained, Keldor is the epitome of a perfect son, beloved by his father...until the fate of Eternia is put on the line. With his kingdom on the line, Randor puts his people first, betraying Keldor, inciting the series of events that leads to him becoming the iconic Skeletor!
Apparently, Adam then sets out to assemble a group of warriors to take down his bro. There's no mention of the Power Sword that turns the prince into He-Man, but we assume it will come into play.

Below, we've listed some of the main and supporting characters that are expected to feature in the movie.

To view all of the characters at once, simply click on the VIEW LIST (ONE PAGE) button below!

Duncan/Man-at-Arms



The King's right-hand man and weaponeer becomes one of He-Man's most loyal allies in the animated series, and it looks like the upcoming reboot will follow-suit.

Duncan is also expected to "serve as a main source of exposition due to his knowledge of Eternia's history."
Zodak



One of the franchise's most intriguing and popular antiheroes, Zodak was originally envisioned as a powerful immortal warrior, but it sounds like the movie plans to strip away some of the more fantastical elements associated with the character.

Here, Zodak will be the King's Minister of Technology, as is expected to take on a mentor role to Adam.

Teela



Daughter of Duncan, Captain of the Royal Guard, and Adam/He-Man's love interest; Teela is an integral part of pretty much all incarnations of Master of the Universe.

We don't know a whole lot about the movie version of the character, but she will serve in Eternia's military, anyway.

Orko



Orko fans should prepare to be disappointed, because it sounds like the reboot will take some major liberties with this little fella.

In the cartoon Orko was a floating alien magician, and served as comic relief. However, the live-action version of the character will be depicted as "a small man whose self-doubt holds him back from being a reasonably mediocre wizard."

Stratos



Stratos is generally depicted as the leader of a race of Bird People known as the Avion, and an ally of He-Man. However, it sounds like the movie will be giving the character a bit more of an edge.

For one, he'll be nicknamed the "Angel of Death," and will rule over the Sky Guards of the Iron Gate Prison "where Skeletor and his crew are imprisoned at one point."
Beast Man



Another classic character that'll be getting quite an extensive makeover for the movie is Skeletor's muscle, Beast Man.

It seems this ferocious villain will now be a shape-shifter with the ability to change into any animal that takes his fancy, "making him a useful spy for Skeletor as well as a formidable fighter."
Evil Lyn



Thankfully, it doesn't sound like they'll be taking too many liberties with Skeletor's wicked sorceress.

Just like in the cartoon/comics, Evil-Lyn will be "a powerful and intelligent witch who uses her power to help Skeletor reconstruct the Havok Staff." She's also described as the "femme-fatale" of the film.
Trap Jaw



Originally introduced as a mass-murdering psycho from another dimension, Trap Jaw was toned down considerably for the animated series and basically became the bad guys' bumbling comic relief.

Details on his upcoming big-screen appearance are sparse, but we do know that he'll still be a cyborg of some description.

Plot Details for ‘Masters of the Universe’ Movie Connect Skeletor and He-Man as… Brothers?!

As announced last month, Sony Pictures and Mattel have tapped Aaron and Adam Nee to helm the long-gestating live-action reboot of the Masters of the Universe property, which previously had David S. Goyer on board to direct. Goyer, meanwhile, wrote the script, and he’s also set to executive produce He-Man’s return to the big screen.

While we must note that scripts always go through various revisions before filming begins, the folks over on That Hashtag Show just brought something interesting to our attention that we thought was worth sharing. They got their hands on character breakdowns for the new film, along with some pretty interesting early plot details.

Most notably, the info they scored reveals that Skeletor and He-Man may actually be brothers in this version of Masters of the Universe, which would be an interesting new wrinkle for the franchise; previous storylines have tied the two together with a family bond, with Skeletor being revealed as the brother of He-Man’s father.

The site explains, “Our source has indicated to us that in the upcoming film, King Randor will be presented as the great warrior-king of Eternia, a descendant of the Grayskulls, and the father of two sons: Adam and Keldor! As the film begins, Keldor is the chosen heir to the throne and his brother, Adam, is young, unfit and a bit of a black sheep. Where Adam’s relationship with his father is strained, Keldor is the epitome of a perfect son, beloved by his father…until the fate of Eternia is put on the line. With his kingdom on the line, Randor puts his people first, betraying Keldor, inciting the series of events that leads to him becoming the iconic Skeletor!”

They continue, “The film will follow the meek and uncertain Adam as he assembles a group of heroes to take on his fallen brother and his collection of cronies. As you might expect, some familiar faces will be joining Adam in the fight.”

The breakdowns further suggest that the film will feature Man-at-Arms, Zodak, Teela, Orko, Stratos, Beast Man, Trap Jaw and Evil-Lyn.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Movie Taps IRON MAN Scribes For Script Rewrite

Sony is moving forward with a big-screen take on classic animated series He-Man and the Master of the Universe, and the studio has now hired
Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway to pen the script.





We recently found out that David S. Goyer had stepped down as director on Sony Pictures and Mattel's planned Masters of the Universe reboot (though he'll remain on as exec producer and screenwriter), but it was then announced that the project has found a pair of replacements in the Nee brothers, Aaron and Adam, who will get to work on the sci-fi/fantasy adventure soon to ensure it meets its Dec. 18, 2019 release date.



ow, Collider reports that the writers of the first Iron Man movie, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, have also come aboard to pen a new draft of the script. The duo's other credits include Transformers: The Last Knight and Punisher: War Zone, so He-Man is in good hands!

We're still not sure what to expect from this take on the classic animated series, but there's a good chance it'll be a fairly light-hearted affair - especially given the recent success of Warner Bros. and James Wan's campy Aquaman movie.

We recently reported on some character descriptions via That Hashtag Show which you can see below, but keep in mind that a new script may mean that all of these details are subject to change.

David S. Goyer’s ‘Masters of the Universe’ Would Have Been a ‘Lord of the Rings’-Sized Epic




Sony Pictures is still trying to make a Masters of the Universe movie despite a decade of development hell. The power of brand recognition is strong in Hollywood, and the studio has their eyes on making a fantasy action blockbuster franchise out of the popular He-Man toyline and cartoon. However, the vision that writer/director David S. Goyer had was too expensive for Sony to bring to life, and one of the creature designers hired to work on that iteration of Masters of the Universe has recently teased some details about what we’ll be missing out on.
Carlos Huante is a creature designer and former artist at Industrial Light and Magic. He’s worked on films like Men in Black, War of the Worlds, Prometheus and more. Coincidentally enough, before he got into creature design and visual effects, Huante worked as a runner at Filmation on the original He-Man cartoon series. And then he was enlisted to help make David S. Goyer’s Masters of the Universe happen. Unfortunately, it sounds like we won’t get to see the full force of what Goyer intended to make.
Huante sat down with HN Entertainment to briefly discuss the Masters of the Universe project he left behind once Goyer walked away from the project. He was working behind the scenes for several weeks on the film and thought the script was really good, “This one was fun and it made the world more fantastic than I thought it could go. It felt arty and fantastical at the same time.”
And the scale of the project sounds like it would have been truly epic. Huante explained:
“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’s easy to shoot for the moon and compare the vision of a prospective project to Lord of the Rings, but Huante clarified a little bit:
“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.”
It’s hard to tell whether David S. Goyer would have been able to pull off something that Huante clearly built up in his mind as something amazingly epic. After all, Lord of the Rings was a miracle of a project, a once in a lifetime kind of fantasy epic. Those kinds of projects are difficult to realize on screen in a satisfying way, no matter how grand a filmmaker’s vision may be, which is probably one of the reasons Sony Pictures has had such a difficult time getting it off the ground.
Adam and Aaron Nee, who helmed the quirky indie flick Band of Robbers, have been hired to direct the current version. They’ll be working from a script that is being polished by Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, so maybe some of Goyer’s ideas will still make it to the big screen.

‘Masters of the Universe’ Reboot Wants Noah Centineo to Play He-Man




Noah Centineo, the internet’s boyfriend who may or may not be a young clone of Mark Ruffalo, might be headed to Eternia. The To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before actor is being sought after to play He-Man in the Masters of the Universe reboot. This would certainly be a far cry from the last live-action version of He-Man, played by Dolph Lundgren in 1987.

The Wrap broke the news about Noah Centineo joining the Masters of the Universe reboot cast as He-Man. Centineo is in talks to join the film, which is being directed by Aaron and Adam Nee. The filmmaking brothers co-wrote the script with Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. At one point, the script was being handled by David Goyer.
Traditionally, Masters of the Universe follows Prince Adam of Eternia, who is able to transform into the mighty He-Man with his Power Sword. He-Man does battle with the evil Skeletor. The material was previously adapted into a 1987 Star Wars knock-off starring Dolph Lundgren as Adam/He-Man, and Frank Langella as Skeletor. Hollywood has been trying to launch a reboot since at least 2007, when John Woo was set to direct.
Since then, the reboot has changed hands several times. At various points, Jon M. Chu, Joe Cornish, Rian Johnson, Andrés Muschietti, Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and McG were all named as potential helmers for the film. In 2017, Goyer was hired to write the script, and eventually entered talks to direct as well. But he ultimately left to work on other projects.
In April of last year, Aaron and Adam Nee were hired to direct. The announcement came as a bit of as a surprise, as the duo were mostly known for their very small indie comedy Band of Robbers. The hiring of the Nees – and the past potential hiring of Phil Lord and Chris Miller – suggests that Sony might be taking a comedic approach to the material here. Hiring Centineo to play the part might suggest that as well, as he doesn’t exactly seem like typical He-Man material. A comedic approach would make sense – after all, the character is named He-Man and he fights someone named Skeletor. That’s not exactly serious stuff.
It was previously reported that filming on Masters of the Universemight start as soon as July of 2019.

Masters Of The Universe: Noah Centineo Confirms He's Playing He-Man In New Movie

Noah Centineo is a hot commodity at the moment, and his latest project is one that is close to many fan's hearts. The Masters of the Universe movie has been in development limbo for what seems like forever, but the film appears to be moving closer to actual production. It can't move forward until it gets a cast, and on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the actor, who had been rumored for the role, broke the news that he will be playing the icon and hero known as He-Man.


After Fallon and Centineo compared Calvin Klein campaigns Fallon asked: "is this a true rumor I heard that you might be...are you playing He-Man?" Centineo replied, "Yes...yeah yeah yeah." Fallon was excited by the news, exclaiming "Masters of the Universe?!" Centineo responded in kind, repeating "Masters of the Universe!" and adding "I have an affinity for being in my underwear, I don't know what it is".
"He-Man is one of my favorites. I grew up with all those toys. I was probably too old to be playing with them but I still was. That's going to be giant, congratulations on that."
This is great news for fans of the property, as attaching a lead is a promising next step for a film that has gone through several writers and directors. The film has been in the works since 2007, and in that time has had names attached like Joel Silver, McG, Jeff Wadlow, and David S. Goyer, though Goyer will still have an executive producer credit on the finished version whenever that happens.
Now the beloved 80s property is in the hands of Adam and Aaron Nee, who seem to have the guy they want to portray Prince Adam, aka He-Man. The film is set to debut sometime in 2020 and is aiming at a production start date of July. We'll have to wait and see if that happens, but a few more castings would indicate the film is on track sooner than later.


For those unfamiliar, Masters of the Universe tells the story of Eternia, a realm that He-Man protects from the evil Skeletor, with a cast of colorful and entertaining supporting characters battling alongside them. The original live-action adaptation came out in 1987, and since then the franchise hasn't set the movie stage on fire, so hopefully, this film will change all that and reignite the franchise.

MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Shifts Its Release Date To 2021; Noah Centineo Still Attached

Though this new iteration of Masters of the Universe has been in development hell for a while, it seems as though things are picking up with a cast lead (Noah Centineo) and a firm 2021 release date.




Little is known about Sony's latest Masters of the Universe adaptation. Knowledge is limited to who the lead character is, He-Man, the actor portraying him, Netflix hearthrob Noah Centineo, and the writers and directors behind the film. Now, latest development show the film debuting early 2021.

According to Deadline, the Aaron and Adam Nee-directed adaptation will be hitting theaters March 5, 2021, a far ways off from in previous Christmas 2019 release date. This all seems like a logical play, due to the fact that production has not even started on the beloved property.

Written by Iron Man's Matt Holloway and Art Mercum, Masters of the Universe will no doubt be a curious project to follow up on. Who knows if the 2021 version could live up to the 1987 camp classic?
