Noah Centineo In Talks To Play He-Man In Sony's MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Movie

It looks like Sony Pictures and Mattel Films' Masters of the Universe movie may have found its He-Man, as To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before actor Noah Centineo is in talks to play the muscle-bound hero...

According to The Wrap, Noah Centineo (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Sierra Burgess Is A Loser) is in talks to play He-Man in Sony's upcoming Masters of the Universe reboot.

We recently found out that David S. Goyer had stepped down as director (though he'll remain on as exec producer and screenwriter), but it was then announced that the project had found a pair of replacements in the Nee brothers, Aaron and Adam. Goyer worked on the latest draft of the script with Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.

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.

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.
