New rumours have suffused suggesting that The Dark Knight Trilogy’s David S. Goyer is in talks to helm the Masters of the Universe reboot.
OK. So, I’m going to be completely honest with you here. I have never watched 1987’s Masters of the Universe and I have only ever watched brief snippets of the show, mostly on YouTube. It’s not really something that grabbed me. I was never really interested in watching a really buff guy run around the pace in minimal clothing, which is surprising since I love comic books and comic book movie.
That said, I have been intrigued by the idea of doing a reboot. there was a time that McG was attached to direct the Masters of the Universe movie, which sounded pretty bad but had the potential to be absolutely hilarious. However, nothing ever seemed to progress on that front, until now. According to The Wrap Sony Pictures is in talks with David S. Goyer to direct the picture.
One thing’s for certain, Goyer is a much better choice than McG, yet his previous movies have been rather lacklustre. Blade: Trinity, The Unborn, and The Invisible were all pretty mediocre at best and since working with Christopher Nolan on The Dark Knight trilogy he did write a real stinker in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That said, Goyer’s done some sterling work in the past having helped write the screenplays for Dark City, Blade, Blade II, Jumper (which I think is OK) and of course, The Dark Knight trilogy.
Goyer has already written the last draft of the Masters of the Universe script and it looks like Sony is confident that he has what it takes to direct the movie as well.
Masters of the Universe is set for a December 18th, 2019 release date. Are you excited about this reboot and do you think that Goyer is the right guy for the job? Let us know in the comments below.
