10 Dream Castings For The Upcoming He-Man Movie

By the power of great casting...


As the last decade shows, there's been no better time than the 2010s for live action superhero movies. The MCU and DCEU remain the reigning titans of the genre, while other equally beloved characters such as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have also seen big-budget blockbuster outings in recent times.

So, where does the "most powerful man in the universe" fit into all this? With today's CGI and motion capture technology, not to mention the ever-growing pantheon of stellar actors out there, isn't it time to pay another visit to the land of Eternia, maybe pop into Castle Grayskull for some tea and scones with Prince Adam? Thankfully, as Sony will confirm, the answer is yes.

Noah Centineo has already been cast as He-Man himself, but the rest of the ensemble is still unknown. There's certainly no shortage of the classic Mattel characters that could show up in the movie, and if the casting directors play their cards right, the new Masters of the Universe could even pave the way for its own cinematic universe, rivalling Marvel and DC with its time in the spotlight.

No-one wants another mediocre Hollywood reboot. Cinema relies on its actors as much as its writing, and so, here are this humble writer's ten dream casting choices that could ensure the film's success. If you're watching, Sony, take note.
