    If nine hundred He-Man.Org members get eaten by Thundercats fans, but neither of them has a toyline, does it still count as a fan movement?

    I have to agree with the others here who think it's rather good news. It always sounded like it was being thrown together. I didn't like the fact that John Woo was attached to the project (I thought the HULK movie was VERY cool to look at, but the script was AWFUL).

    Better to wait.

    The HULK movie was directed by Ang Lee who also did Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Brokebakc Mountain, John Woo has made rubbish like Mission: Impossible 2 and Face Off.

    I'm glad the movie was passed on, I wasn't keen on John Woo directing and I'm now hoping Mattel realises they should release the 200x series on DVD and allow MVC more creative control and freedom in making a comic series.

    Do you hear me Mattel?

    But if Mattel still want to do the movie are they still attached with John Woo? I mean does he even want to do the movie anymore? They should just look for someone else.

    Well I cant say I'm really shocked by it. dont get me wrong I would love to see this done...right. The last live action was a crap fest in my opinion. I'd love to see a good movie done properly.

    Well, I'm sure we havent seen the last of he-man in one form or another. He may pop up again in another 10 years or so.... maybe?

    Eh, it'll happen, look how long it took X-Men and Spider-Man. Heck, Punisher got two bad movies out of Hollywood.

    Is this really a surprize?

    Live action movies based on cartoons seldom turn out good and just end up making the cartoon and the movie look bad. The original MOTU had a few positives items but overall the movie was pretty bad IMO.

    The Transformers movie looks horrible beyond relief.

    I wish Mattel would have just made a few animated direct to video movies instead.

    Hey guys this saddens me as does you, I have collected both he man and transformers for years as these two franchises have been my love since i was like 2 yrs old when he man started. The hopes on a he man movie now rest on what tftm 2007 does has me down. the way that michael bay has gone with tf is scary and no its not like a carbon copy of g1 was what was needed as i understand you have to appese everyone, but in that saying u don't turn your back on your fan base that got you there in the first place. I am holding out hope that the fan base cries over the movie sketch leaks of the tf movie is heard cause right now this movie looks nothing like tformers but in name and now that a he man movie rides on it. michael bays direction of tftm 2007 has me scared a little more.

    I think there will be a new He-man movie that fits better to the 80's cartoon, but I think mattel could try paramont to make it, cause Fox cant be the only people.

    also I think what's his name who stared in wedding crashes should play He-man, while he girl freind should be she-ra.

    I don't think a MOTU needs to be some gradiose serious epic nor some big shot director.
    As long as it a solid story and looks good. I'd be happy.
    If ya had the same team as Chronicles of Riddick for instance with a snappier script, that would be great.

    So, John Woo is still interested then? A few weeks ago there were reports saying that we would see a MotU film one day, but that the project was far down on John's list of things to do.

    I don't wanna turn this into a HULK thread but....

    I agree that John Woo would have been a poor choice as director. I'm yet to see one of his movies that is actually any good.

    Anyway, the HULK script was not awful. I consider it to be one of the best comic to film adaptations yet. And I say that as someone who was never a HULK fan or a Marvel fan for that matter. (DC all the way, man) The script for HULK was multi-layered, strong on character development and just the right amount of action. I really struggle to understand the amount of criticism that this film receives. I felt like I was watching a comic and that's what you want from a film like that.

    If you want BAD comic to film examples see: Daredevil, Elektra, Fantastic Four, Batman and Robin.

    Anyway, it's probably just as well a MOTU film is shelved.

    Look at the hack job Speilberg, Bay and Dreamworks are doing on Transformers. I'd say I'm more of a Transformers fan than a MOTU fan and I'm telling you: the TF film has got me nervous. The designs for the TFs are rubbish. Speilberg claims he's a G1 fan but I doubt he could even name one of the G1 characters.

    The way Hollywood is going today, I think you can say with a fair degree of confidence that anything that is remotely cool in one medium (such as comics, toys or Video Games) will become utterly screwed once it hits the screen.

    I'd rather see a live action MOTU TV series. TV is where its at now. There's better ideas, better stories and more room for story development on TV. Screw films.

    Hulk was Ang Lee, not John Woo. Ang Lee recently film was Brokeback Mountain.

    That's because none of his American films (and none of his more recent Asian films) have been any good.

    None of them.

    He peaked with Hard Boiled and The Killer. And you're looking at ~15 years ago...

    I'm actually glad that the project went back to Mattel. That lineup of names on the creative side just didn't look good.

    Maybe now Mattel could just concentrate on trying a few direct-to-video movies and see what happens from there.

    Personally I think the 2007 Tranformers film will do excellent, money-wise, even if it's not that great. So if some of our chances of getting a MotU film rest on the sucess of Transformers, then I'm pretty sure we'll get something.

    I say this because Transformers: The Movie DVD is doing VERY good on the Billboard charts. It debuted at #10 on the overall chart and that position is even better than that of the original release. Plus, it's holding at #30 in it's second week. This is on the overall chart. To my knowledge no other 80s cartoon has been able to stay in the top 40 two weeks in a row.

    Yeah, that works for me.

    I disagree. The movie would be another reboot if you will. We will need different designs, hopefully ones that are shifted to be classic yet still fit on the motion picture screen. Face the facts, most people are familiar with He-Man's classic look. However, this would actually result in probably using more of the 4H color schemes. But remember, Mattel is going to need to be able to market new toys and merchandise.
    Just because the story is a reboot, does not mean they can't use designs like or extremely similar to the 4H designs, which are already highly faithful to the classic. The story needs to be a reboot, the costumes do not necessarily need to be. The recognizeability of the classic is irrelivent here. Anyone who looks at a 200X MotU character, instantly knows who it is supposed to be if they were familiar with the classic, even a little. The bottom line is that the 4H are very good, and very faithful to the classic. I would be very disappointed in a film if the characters looked a lot like the classic toys/toon. I, personally, love the old stuff for nostalgic reasons, but I don't want to see it all rehashed any more than I'd want to see a Batman movie with Batman in the 60's TV show costume, or anything even remotely similar. I want MotU to be treated as a fantasy property, and i think that is how it can attain lasting success, rather than just another flash in the pan cash in on a children's property...which is basically what you're proposing if they went back to classic-looks.

    Plus, they absolutely need to use a sword design that is as close to the classic toy or Filmation as possible. We didn't get it in the Dolph movie and we didn't get it in the 4H line. That sword, to me, is He-Man. Same with She-Ra. It is one of the coolest sword designs ever and I would love to see it in action on the big screen.
    I agree on that as well. i never said that the movie versions should be identical without variation from the 4H design, but i do think they should be very very close. But, He-Man's classic sword was tough to beat.
