“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” director Jon M. Chu is in talks to direct a new “Masters of the Universe” film, according to a report at MTV Geek.

The film would be based on the toy property, which features He-Man and his musclebound friends who defend the land of Eternia from the evil Skeletor.   The property launched a 1980s animated series and a 2002 remake.  DC Comics recently launched a new comic-book miniseries based on the property.

Are you excited to potentially see a new “Masters of the Universe” film?  What characters or situations should be included?
