The directors of Netflix’s upcoming live-action Masters of the Universe movie seemingly backhanded Kevin Smith in a recent interview. They said that they wanted to lean into MOTU’s weirdness and uniqueness, and not try to turn it into Lord of the Rings. While promoting Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Kevin Smith *specifically* cited Lord of the Rings as one of the franchises that they wanted to emulate with the series, and that MOTU was *interchangeable* with so many other generic fantasy and sci-fi franchises. The movie could be a disaster, but it does seem like Netflix might be learning from its mistakes with fans. (Yeah, right.)
