Kyle Allen, who has tasted fame for ‘West Side Story’, has been chosen to play He-Man/Prince Adam in the live-action based on Mattel’s ‘Masters of the Universe’ franchise. The company Mattel has signed a deal with Netflix to produce the film and production is expected to begin this summer. In ‘Masters of the Universe’, an orphan named Adam discovers that he is actually a prince whose destiny is to save his true home from an evil force using the powers he possesses, yet to be revealed.

    Robbie Brenner, Executive Producer for Mattel Films, said: “‘Masters of the Universe’ is an iconic property that shaped the imagination of an entire generation of children thanks to the message of becoming the best version of themselves. With our partners at Netflix, we look forward to showing audiences that anything can happen in Eternia. We continue to develop this global franchise in new ways, and We look forward to seeing Kyle battle Skeletor in this epic live-action saga.”

    The producers Todd Black Jason Blumenthal Y Steve table have said that they were inspired by the world of Eternia and that they are “excited to tell a whole new story for ‘Masters of the Universe'”. Mattel’s original toy line launched in 1982 and was fueled by the launch of the ‘He-Man and the Masters of the Universe’ animated series, which has spawned subsequent movies, cartoons and toys.

    This isn’t the first time He-Man has appeared in a live-action movie. In 1987 we already had a disastrous adaptation (it was a total box office disaster) with Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella like Skeleton. Allen comes to the project fresh from his success in ‘West Side Story’ Steven Spielberg playing Balkan, one of the Jets. Previously, he first got a taste of fame on the Hulu series ‘The Path’ alongside Aaron Paul Y Michelle Monaghan, and then appeared in ‘American Horror Story’.

    Sony Pictures bought the rights to the characters from Mattel back in 2009, and until 2019 it seemed that the studio and those responsible for the film had already chosen their next He-Man: Noah Centineo. However, in April 2021 Centineo left the project and the Nee brothers (Aaron and Adam Nee), who had to direct the film, did not give more details about the future or the viability of the project. With the new movie, from Netflix, perhaps the gap left by Sony’s would be covered.

    In addition to these two new ‘Masters of the Universe’ movies‘, too Kevin Smith prepares his series on the franchise, ‘Masters of the Universe: Revelation’. But Netflix brought to the screen five seasons of ‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’ and, as reported Joblo, they are already preparing a new animated series based on the famous Mattel toys. They don’t get tired, so We predict He-Mans overload soon.
