    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.

    He-Man needs to look like Adam,, and he needs to look like his twin sister,, and he should look like the king and queen.

    ..and if he doesnt look like the filmation He-Man ..I will never pay money to see it.

    I don't know. But I don't expect him to look like the toy necessarily. (But then, who could look like that?)

    You would need to do a lot of casting and reveiwing people for Masters.

    ..I could do it, if those people in hollywood are tooo busy..

    He'll probably be more armoured in the film. Flesh will be on show, but no way near enough as we're all used to with He-Man. I'm thinking snake armour look.

    Snake Armor look, but with the 200x Symbol and not the Iron Cross.

    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 !

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 if He-Man was capable of wearing more than one outfit??

    What if he just got up ..and Seletor was like shooting freeze-rays at the palace,, ..so He-Man throws on his gonch and goes out there all like smell my feet bone-brain!!!!

    Skeletor only ever wears a gonch anyways so he'd be like smell this mighty-mouse-man.

    ..or even Teala could be in her gonch.

    Awesomeness.

    I think a film version could still provide a fairly faithful adaptation of He-man's look without too much deviation. I'm not against an armoured look either, but I think I would leave that either for a final confrontation or a sequel where he's confronting Skeletor as a sort of 'Battle armour' He-man because he's learned more about the power of Grayskull.

    Truthfully, He-Man has such a boring design that I can understand the need to jazz it up for the big screen. That said, I say keep him to his roots. No fancy armor, no capes etc. The only other problem is finding a good actor with the right build. The guy who played Thor might work but even he seems kind of slender compared to how I imagine He-Man would look in real life.

    I would like to see he-man with out armor on he just looks better, with armor he looks to much like a night in the royal guard instead of a barbarian look which makes him look a whole lot more impressive. And i always wanted to to see a guy that was built like arnold when he played in conan the destroyer. Not some little guy like doph was in the first masters of the universe film. he didn't look impressive at all in that movie i always pictured he-man built like conan

    He-man outfit is too iconic and doesn't need too many changes. The new Dc comics look is perfect, just add a longer haircut ( please no fringe!) and it's done!

    This is some concept art that Mattel did for a more armoured take on He-Man. These were done when the rights were at WB:

    Keep his look similar to what it's been. For all the complaints John Carter got I haven't seen any about the outfit he wore which was similar to He-Man's so I don't think people will mind as long as the script and acting are solid.

    Also, this is by a concept artist who was working on the film when it was at WB. I have no idea what’s going on here, but I have to confess I do like whatever it is:
