No offense to Dolph Lundgren but isn’t it time to have a legit He-Man and the Masters of the Universe film? Kung-Fu Panda director John Stevenson thinks so.

El Mayimbe, who always does a kick ass job at Latino, brings us news that Stevenson went to Silver offices and gave a presentation that blew away the powers that be, so much so that Stevenson now will be directing the animated film. This is good news for He-Man fans as Stevenson has received tons of credit for his job on Kung-Fu Panda.

I have a special nostalgic place in my heart for the old He-Man cartoons. I could even be talked into watching the awful Masters of the Universe film that Courteney Cox starred in if I was drunk enough. I still can’t believe Frank Langella played Skeletor. I could have sworn Joan Rivers won the role. But look at Langella now – all that time as Skeletor prepared him for playing Richard Nixon.

We will keep you posted on any official developments. Until then, practice your, “I have the power,” battle cries.

What do you think of the news that He-Man found a director? What 80s cartoon do you want to see re-made?
