MADRID, May 26. (CultureOcio) –
With the first images of the new animated series of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, a direct sequel to the original story from the ’80s, have reactivated interest in the live-action reboot of the franchise. And if the latest rumors are true, Henry cavill (DC’s Superman) and Chris Hemsworth (Marvel’s Thor) will “fight” to give life to He-Man in the film.

Chu, Jeff Wadlow Y McG trying to make his own version of Eternia’s adventures, all of them failed. The last of these unstarted projects was the film he was going to star in Noah centineo and directing brothers Adam and Aaron Nee, who also got bored.
It is precisely this last version, which did not start production because Centineo himself left the project -and that even had a release date scheduled for March of this 2021- which according to rumors is trying to retake in Hollywood. The strongest-sounding name for He-Man is Hemsworth, but apparently it is going to have fierce competition.
