Wait, Noah Centineo is being cast as He-Man/Prince Adam?!

April 12th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, we may be on the verge of having a new He-Man…

Word is that To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before star Noah Centineo is in talks to play Prince Adam/He-Man in the in production movie.

Now, we’re just going to be blunt… Centineo (below) doesn’t exactly scream He-Man to us as he’s not the big, muscular, intimidating figure the hero should be… so we’re guessing he’s playing Price Adam and through motion capture ala Hulk he will become He-Man.

Or perhaps they’ll have another actor as He-Man himself.

Who knows. It’s a bit mental though.

Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum are currently rewriting Aaron and Adam Nee’s original script for the movie.

Based on Mattel’s hugely successful 1980s toy line, “Masters of the Universe” follows Prince Adam, heir to the throne of planet Eternia, who uses the magical Power Sword to transform into the heroic warrior He-Man. With the help of his allies Teela, Man-at-Arms, Orko and The Sorceress, He-Man defends the kingdom from the evil wizard Skeletor (so-named because his face is an exposed skull), who seeks to gain control of Castle Grayskull, source of He-Man’s powers.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. 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….
