It has been announced that Rom-com star Noah Centineo has pulled out of the Sony ‘Masters of the Universe’ film. Maybe it’s because he’s going to be in the DCEU as Atom Smasher, acting with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in ‘Black Adam,’ and simply doesn’t have time?

From the information about his exit we have learned that it’s probably for the best because they will likely ruin the MOTU franchise as they are “rebooting” the Master of the Universe….universe.

According to Collider, Centineo is not longer playing the character of He-Man, and his counterpart Prince Adam, in the upcoming film. Now writers/directors Aaron and Adam Nee will be forced to find someone else to play the character in their re-imagining of a brand with a fandom spanning over 35 years.

In a previous interview Centineo has said:

It’s a new universe and it’s a new studio and their take on a universe. The Nee brothers, Adam and Aaron Nee, they’re directing it, and they’re the filmmakers in charge of the story, and they are doing one hell of a job developing the world and all these things, so. I can’t tell you what tone they’re going for, but they’re genius, so.

Well maybe he lost faith in their “genius” or maybe he’s busy, or maybe this is just God telling them to stop “rebooting” everything and leave it alone.

The window for the Netflix release on this was late 2021 or early 2022. Now that will likely change if they move forward on it.

Who knows.
