Thor scribe trades in Asgard for Eternia to pen Masters of the Universe

08.20.2015

After living in the world of Asgard for the past few years, screenwriter Christopher Yost (THOR: THE DARK WORLD) is ready to head to another brightly coloured mystical land; per Variety, Yost has been tapped perform a rewrite on Sony's MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE reboot.

You all know what MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE is about, but lets take short refresher together shall we?

Set on the planet of Eternia, the story follows a warrior named Prince Adam who has the power to transform into the heroic He-Man. His nemesis is a villain named Skeletor who seeks to conquer a fortress known as Castle Grayskull in order to learn the secrets held within.

Previous drafts of the film were written by Terry Rossio and Jeff Wadlow, the later of whom was also said to be taking on directing duties for MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE but at the moment there's been no official announcement. Christopher Yost won't depart Asgard for long, as he's already set to pen THOR: RAGNAROK with Craig Kyle. RAGNAROK is scheduled for a July 28, 2017 release.

With all due respect...NO!

The fact that I was allowed to be 15 minutes late to school every day so that I could finish watching He-Man, because it was the best cartoon ever made....and the fact that the two Thor movies were absolutely terrible...I am strongly against this. Bring in someone who wasn't partly responsible for the worst of the Marvel Superhero movies, please! This is a property that should be done correctly...for 80's-Me's sake!!

I won't believe this is actually happening until either I get cast as Skeletor or I see a trailer.
