There’s been talk of a Masters Of The Universe reboot for some time. I’m actually quite keen on the idea, as the 1987 Dolph Lundgren’s starrer wasn’t really very good, was it? A while back it was announced that David. S. Goyer, best known for writing the Dark Knight trilogy, was going to write the script, and now it seems that he’s been promoted to director according to Screen Rant, though this hasn’t been confirmed, and Goyer has DC’s Green Lantern Corps to get out of the way first.
A few months ago The Tracking Board’s Jeff Sneider claimed earlier:
“David Goyer is responsible for this entire DC Universe, he wrote Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. He wrote Man of Steel. He is the architect, if you will. This is one of those] situations where he could be like, ‘Listen, I think I may be the best guy for the job, nobody knows this like I do’.”
Considering how poorly the DC Universe pictures are turning out with the exception of Wonder Woman, I’m not sure that being “responsible for this entire DC Universe” is something to be proud of. But Goyer has directed before, albeit with mixed results. The Invisible was rather good, and I don’t find Blade: Trinity to be as bad as all that, but The Unborn was pretty lousy. So who knows how it’ll turn out!
