Sony Pictures has brought on Thor: Ragnarok screenwriter Christopher Yost to take a crack at the Masters of the Universe script, according to a new report at Variety. The project has been in development for years, but fans hoped that it may finally get off the ground earlier this year, when the studio released a new Masters of the Universe logo, and it was revealed that Jeff Wadlow's (Kick-Ass 2) script was complete. It seems the studio is going back to the drawing board with yet another writing coming on board.
The franchise is set on the planet Eternia, following a young man named Adam who has the power to turn himself into a mighty warrior named He-Man. Adam becomes the planet's last hope to defeat the evil Skeletor, who has devastated the entire planet on his quest to conquer castle Greyskull. It isn't known how much the plot »

James looks back at 7 previous X-Men TV shows to see what Fox's in-development series could do well to emulate and avoid...
If recent reports are to be believed, Fox is planning to bring the X-Men franchise to the TV in some form or another, doubtlessly hoping to compete with Marvel and DC's ever-growing stable of shows.
And why not? The X-Men are no strangers to television, with a surprising number of TV appearances under their belts. So what are they like, and what can Fox learn from them as it attempts to bring a new X-Men TV series to life?
This 30-minute animated short was produced as a pilot for an animated X-Men show and mostly used the 1970s Claremont/Byrne era team as its basis, though with one obvious exception. Had Marvel gone ahead, we'd have seen a team consisting of Professor X, »

(Scott’s out this week, so I’m filling in.) Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has always gone back and forth between trying to emulate the fun action of the Marvel movies while taking on a stodgier seriousness that comes from dealing with the superpowered with a kind of bureaucratic bullishness. But “One of Us” managed a balance between these two in a way that reminded me of animated superhero shows like X-Men: Evolution or Justice League. While the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are learning to become more trusting of each other, the villains are teaming up to create a gang of superpowered misfits not unlike Lex Luthor’s Legion of Doom or Mystique’s Brotherhood.We open up on a stormy night in Coney Island where Drea de Matteo (whom I last saw in New York, I Love You, back when Bradley Cooper had appropriately aged romantic partners »
