Live-action Masters of the Universe movie has lost its He-man

May 2nd, 2021 by Marc Comments

Just a touch over two years ago we learned that actor Noah Centineo had been cast as Prince Adam/He-Man in the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe live-action movie (here).

However, it now seems he’s left the project which, since we’ve heard almost nothing about it since then, isn’t really that surprising.

The movie is being penned and directed by Band of Robbers’ Aaron and Adam Nee however, now a representative for the actor has said “He is no longer attached to that project”.

Centineo has since signed on to play, and is currently filming, Atom Smasher in the Black Adam movie with Dwayne Johnson, so he’s now part of the DCEU and he’s also signed on for a couple of big projects at Netflix, so he’s likely going to be busy for the foreseeable future.

Honestly, I would be very surprised if we saw a live-action return to Eternia on the big screen anytime soon as this is a movie that, ever since the 80s Dolph Lungren outing, has been stuck in development hell.

But I hope I’m proved wrong.

Would you be excited for a He-Man and the Masters of the Universe movie? Let me know your thoughts, gang,

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
