After years of ups and downs, it looks like Sony’s reboot of Masters of the Universe may finally be moving forward. The Wrap is reporting that Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) is in final talks to portray He-Man. The report doesn’t mention if he will also portray Prince Adam, but it’s likely. Centineo has a role in the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot, which has supposedly impressed Sony enough to offer him the role.
Masters of the Universe is being directed by Aaron and Adam Nee, from a script by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. There is currently no production date set for the film.
As strange as it seems, Square Enix has partnered with futuristic ice cream brand, Dippin’ Dots, for its upcoming title Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy!

The partnership even introduces a few “specialty” flavors, which actually equate to renaming the chain’s everyday flavors. This includes White Mage’s Healing Vanilla, Red Mage’s Sweet Strawberry Spell, and more. Head over to the site, and try your luck!
