I HAVE THE POWER!!!!… to be once again delayed.

Having spent what feels like an age spinning its wheels in development hell, Sony’s long-gestating Masters of the Universe movie has yet again stalled.

As part of a rejigged release schedule from Sony, Masters of the Universe hasn’t just been pushed back by a few weeks or a few months, but currently the picture has been completely removed from Sony’s schedule.

If you remember, this is a project that has been in some sort of development since as far back as 2014. Since then, McG, David Goyer, and Justin Lin are just three of the directors who have at one point been associate with Masters of the Universe. At the last count, Band of Robbers’ Aaron and Adam Nee were signed on to direct the movie from a script by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum – with The Fosters’ Noah Centineo on board to play He-Man.

Following this further blow for Masters of the Universe, there’s even rumblings that Sony could ultimately end up selling the film to Netflix. That’s merely online scuttlebutt right now, yet that could well be one avenue to explore – particularly with Kevin Smith currently overseeing a Masters of the Universe animated series for the on-demand streaming service that will serve as a sequel to the original carton, plus a CGI-driven He-Man show also in development.

As ever, expect more on all things Masters of the Universe as we get it.
