We weren't looking forward to the new Masters Of The Universe movie to begin with, but now that we know that the movie will show why magic is better than science? Now we're dreading it.
The revelation came in yesterday's Hollywood Reporter story about the movie getting a new writer, as the paper explained the studio's take on the franchise:
Warners sees the big-screen version as a gritty fantasy and reimagines Adam as a soldier who sets off to find his destiny, happening upon the magical world of Eternia. There, Skeletor has raised a technological army and is bent on eradicating magic.
There is so much fail in those two sentences that I don't know where to start. A gritty He-Man? A guy with a skeleton for a head "bent on eradicating magic"? The whole "magic versus science" thing in general? It's all so wrong, and that's coming from a movie that was destined to be pretty wrong in the first place. Is it too late to stop this monstrosity?
