I'm very curious to see how this upcoming Masters of the Universe film turns out. Director David S. Goyer recently shared a couple photos of him looking at some preliminary designs for some of the characters. The one character that we get a decent look at is of He-Man's right-hand-woman Teela. The things is... she's wearing some kind of mech-type battle-suit!?
I'll be honest... I'm not a fan of it. Look, I like the design... but this in no way represents He-Man and The Masters of the Universe. Why does she need a mech battle suit? This is the first sign for me that this film is being taken in the wrong direction. I want to finally see a He-Man movie that is faithful to the classic action figure line and cartoon that many of us grew up with. No one in the He-Man universe needs a mech suit! All the characters are so much more badass on their own! In the cartoon, Teela sports that radical snake armor! That's what I want to see in the movie.
These designs come from Blade: Trinity concept artist Carlos Huante, who is also in the photos looking at the designs with Goyer. Master of The Universe is currently set for a December 18th, 2019 release. What do you think of this design for Teela?
