God damn you all to Hell! Kevin Smith has announced that he’s going to showrun a Netflix revival of the original Masters of the Universe cartoon from the 1980s. Not a reboot, but a continuation of wherever that original He-Man cartoon left off. Ridiculous.
It’s going to be called Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
First of all, what a dumb name. Could you be any more generic? Did someone not like Masters of the Universe: Vengeance?
Second of all, who really cares or remembers how the original 1980s cartoon left off? I watched that cartoon as lovingly as I watched all the other 80s cartoons and I don’t care one lick! I know that original Masters of the Universe fans still exist, but come oooon. Are those few people really so passionate as to catch Netflix’s attention? So much so that it has to be a continuation and not a reboot?
Third of all, I’m just really salty that this garbage is probably going to supersede He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cast joining the amazing She-Ra and the Princesses of Power cartoon. I just did a List of Six about this, people! That’s supposed to be part of the She-Ra endgame!
The best, easiest way for me to share the geeky joy coming out of Comic-Con is with movie trailers. They’re easy to post on this blog and require little work on my part. So how about we check out a bunch of them?
First up is the trailer for the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which looks insane and potentially awesome! I was a big Kevin Smith fan back in the day, during his good movie years. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was the first movie I went to see when I moved away to college. So I’m excited for this new film.
It’s probably not going to be very good. But it looks like Kevin Smith is just gonna go nuts, reflecting on his entire life and career. That should be more than enough to be weirdly awesome!
How about the new trailer for It 2!
Looks confidently scary and spooky. The first one was really good. Did I ever tell you henchies that I saw It twice in theaters? I saw it at the same theater a week apart with two different dates. It was weird, but funny in hindsight.
Next up is Top Gun: Maverick, a super weird return.
I was never super into the original Top Gun. It’s a fine film, and I saw it as a kid, but it wasn’t life changing. So to bring Tom Cruise back for a sequel some 30 years later? Yeah, sure, I suppose that’s what people are doing these days. The trailer looks alright. Here’s hoping it’s worth watching.
Stay tuned to my blog over the next couple of days for even more trailers and any other news I can squeeze out of Comic-Con!
