    What would He-Man have to look like today?

    Although I'm still a fan of the classic He-Man look, what would He-Man have to look like today to be accepted in a movie? I'm sorry, I just don't think the strap like armor and furry underwear would work like they did in 1982 for a new movie.

    Personally, I'm a huge fan of the silver edition of Battle Sounds He-Man. Maybe they could use some sort of chain mail where bare leg and arm is showing. Or maybe they could take a little inspiration from Snake Armor He-Man and and have the strap armor molded into the full body armor. And of course, any He-Man would have to have the cross, not the stupid 2002 logo.

    What do you think?

    2002 he-man with more bulk, essentially the 4hm sketch prior to the focus group changes. its not the look so much that will sell this movie, it's how its done.

    Chris Hemsworth in the Snake Armor would be fine with me. Add the sword from the '87 movie and give him a pet tiger!

    That goes without saying. But if you had put Adam West Batman in the current Batman trilogy, it wouldn't work no matter how well the movies are done.

    King Grayskull would be my guess. I mean, when 4H re-designed He-Man they came up with him.

So to try to answer the original question, I think more tasteful armour in the right places like in the illustration. I definitely want to see muscle though. Given the situation a pumped bicep is just as important as an expression on an actors face.

    What do you think?
    I think that the 2002 logo is not "stupid" and it fits him better than the cross. A cross has been used for lots of different things, while the 2002 logo is unique to him.

    For the armor, i would like to see horde armor or snake armor.
    As for the actor, it should be a wrestler like Dolph Ziggler ( another Dolph lol ) and Triple H for Randor !
