He-Man Fans Are Happy, Sad, Baffled By Netflix's Masters of the Universe Movie Reboot
Netflix's new Masters of the Universe movie will be bringing He-Man back to live-action movie screen for the first time in over 35 years. West Side Story star Kyle Allen will be playing He-Man in the film, and the Nee Brothers (who were once set to direct a He-Man reboot for Sony) will be at the helm of Netflix's version of the movie. The Masters of the Universe franchise has been in development limbo for years as a live-action film, and somewhat divisive in its numerous attempts to reboot the animated series over the last few decades.
With all that on the table, He-Man fans are feeling a range of emotions about this new Masters of the Universe Netflix movie – with some even wondering if the franchise is still relevant enough to even be a film!

We've been burned by the Master of the Universe franchise so many times before... A lot of fans won't believe it's true unless they see it for themselves onscreen.prevnext
Langella Or Nothing
Bring back Frank Langella as Skeletor or NO DEAL.https://t.co/Pg35hsKXKV— Evan Valentine (@EVComedy) January 28, 2022
A lot of fans want acting legend Frank Langella back as Skeletor, a role he played in the '80s Masters of the Universe movie. We endorse that idea wholeheartedly!prevnext

Any Allen Will Do...
I don't know this Kyle Allen but Josh Allen would actually be a good He-Man. pic.twitter.com/1CCngdsbUY— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) January 28, 2022

Got A Bad Feeling About This...
I read some of the story synopsis of this movie, as well as the other details... and looking at this casting of Adam/He-Man after that...
I've got a bad feeling about this... #HeMan https://t.co/HmnxZI2rX3— Jakejames Lugo (@jakejameslugo) January 28, 2022
It didn't take long for the negativity to creep in. EONS by Internet standards.prevnext
Stop, Stop, He's Already Dead...
Can Netflix please stop pissing on the corpse of He-Man? That would be grand.— Collin Hume (@CollinPH) January 28, 2022
Some fans don't want He-Man to become a thing again. See above for why.prevnext
At Least He's Alive!
I saw He-Man was trending and thought maybe he had died. o_O pic.twitter.com/CdEpjo8y5L— Krud™ (@Krud) January 28, 2022
Then there are the fans who are just glad that He-Man (and his franchise) are still alive!prevnext

But What About the Cartoon Guy Tho?
Dk how I feel about this because can animation please just be kept that way😭 also… I would’ve preferred Chris wood (the actual voice of Netflix’s currently he-man adaptation) https://t.co/60XRNHjKAZ— gee ♡’s aurora (@thecartoonhots1) January 28, 2022
Supergirl star Chris Wood voices He-Man in Kevin Smith's Masters of the Universe animated series on Netflix. Get ready to hear it from all those fans who want him to play the live-action He-Man.prev
