    I wasn't really too keen on him playing He-Man, so this is good news to me.

    It would be pretty neat if Hemsworth played a villain in the MOTU movie though. I'm not quite sure which villain though maybe Tri-Klops, or perhaps Trap Jaw.

    That's not too surprising. He-Man damn near IS Thor and even has much of the same beats. It would be like acting in the same movie.

    Too bad, I thought he would have been a great choice.

    Yea I'm not sure if he would be my first choice but he would draw a lot of people to see the MOTU movie if he played he-man so I can take it or leave it

    I've been saying that he would be perfect for He-Man ever since I saw the fist production pics of him as Thor but I always doubted he would do it as it's too similar of a character.

    I still think Kellan Lutz could pull off He-Man well. He sort of has Prince Adam's dorky, soft, features. They can spray tan him and make him look rugged like He-Man.

    I totally agree.
    My other choice would have been Alexander Skarsgärd, but movie should have made 5 years ago and he should have done quite some heavy lifting exercises

    I´ve heard a so long time about, so many years, the new he-man´s movie that I don´t like discuss about who would play He-man.

    In my opinion they would use the same actor to play Adam and He-man, and not a boy to play Adam, it´s too close to Shazam!

    "Chris would be perfect", it´s the major opinion today because he played Thor well, but 10 years ago Brad Pitt was "the" man to play He-man because Aquiles in *****.

    What I really don´t want is a westler playing He-man!!

    Captain America was arguably "too similar" to Human Torch, but Chris Evans played them both anyway.

    Good lord, if playing similar characters were a problem, none of the guys in the Expendables movies would have had a career.

    I always used to think The Rock would be a pretty decent He-Man if you could get a realistic sandy-blond wig on him. I think he's getting a bit old for it now though.

    Switch those two around and you'll be on to something. Dolph is too short, too lean, and has way too high pitch a voice to be taken seriously as He-Man. Dwayne on the other hand is tall, imposing, muscular, and has already proved he can play the barbarian/warrior role well.

    I think Channing Tatum is a great candidate, he is very popular right now + connection with jon chu .

    I'm sure if Duke dies in GI Joe Retaliaton ,channing tatum will play He-Man .

    It sucks, he would have been a great He-Man, especially if they also got his lil brother to play Adam. But I totally understand his position - he wants some variety.

    I too hope they don't get some wrestler. I'd rather have a skinnier actor who can act, then a huge wrestler/body builder who just walks around with a dumb look on his face.

    Oh Good Lord Please No! He has the acting skills of wooden plank from Ed, Edd & Eddy cartoon show! He has ruined Duke already.

    Sorry, IMHO, that Dolph Ziggler looks like a moron to play He-Man

    Well, he’s right really. It would have taken type-casting to a whole new level. I say give it to his younger brother, Liam. He hasn't got a franchise of his own yet. He's got the looks and the acting chops. A no brainer, IMO.

    I'd much prefer Helmsworth to Tatum. I swear on Grayskull's grave if Tatum plays He-Man I will give up on this thing before it starts.

    I thought it was universally agreed on these boards that until we hear otherwise, Jesse Palveka is the best guy to play He-Man?!

    I would prefer an animated movie over live action. There's more you can do with it, both effects and casting wise, plus an animated movie would appeal to kids.

    With that said, for live action, you have to have someone physically imposing, in great shape, but gentle too to pull off the character. I hate to say this, because I hate his character on TV, but John Cena might be a good fit. He meets those qualities. Never saw "The Marine", but Cena might have enough acting ability to pull off the role of He-Man. Just needs to grow some hair.

    That's so true. It's be like the original Conan movie all over again!

    I think he (Hemsworth) is right, personally. He's got all the right qualifications, but, particularly given the massive fan-base crossover, I think with the sheer volume of similarities you'd look at him as He-man, and see Thor in the back of your mind. For a lot of people it'd be difficult to 'switch that off' and concentrate on the movie.

    Certainly pull in the punters though.
