Confused? Understandably. But Super7, purveyors of all sorts of nerdy nostalgia, have clearly done a shocking amount of work to make this as authentic a version of the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series as possible, right down to Skeletor’s insults of his minions.

While Sony’s Masters of the Universe movie seems no closer to actually getting made now than it has for the last dozen or so years, at least we know one actor has had an actual conversation about the film with its current director McG: Kellan Lutz.
The grown man who continues to identify as McG is in talks with Sony to direct the long, long, long in development Masters of the Universe movie.

Multiverses! Don’t you know the key to comic book superstardom is an interconnected mess of alternate realities? Everyone has one, whether they’re tearing them up into a zillion pieces or slowly stitching them back together for the umpteenth time. The latest Comic to jump on the bandwagon?
