It might be the “unflattering” 2013 Superbowl Halftime Show that made everyone ponder, but should America’s most beloved pop diva Beyoncé consider starring a new He-Man and the Masters of the Universe movie remake?

Even though the pop diva had been requesting her fans on Facebook not to further share her “unflattering” photos of her 2013 Superbowl Halftime Show performance – i.e. that leather bodysuit that made her look like the villainess Evil-Lyn of Mattel’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon of the early 1980s - should Beyoncé star in a new He-Man and the Masters of the Universe movie remake? After all, she really looks the part, right?
Even though He-Man’s original creator, Roger Sweet, only got scant credit after the gargantuan U.S.-based toy company Mattel got the distribution rights when it first aired back in 1983, the 1987 live action movie of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe that starred the up-and-coming action star Dolph Lundgren and a then newcomer named Courtney Cox who would later burst to stardom in the 1990s friends, never appealed to the fan of the original 1980s era TV aired animated series. But will a new movie remake that stars Beyoncé Knowles be the brilliant solution for blockbuster success? By the way, in the 1987 Masters of the Universe movie, Evil-Lyn was played by Meg Foster and despite a catchy soundtrack by Living in a Box, the movie was only moderately successful in box office terms.
Though the villainess Evil-Lyn in the original animated TV series of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe might have been probably “inspired” by one of Roger Sweet’s ex-girlfriends – maybe named Evelyn – whose break-up was never amicable is one of the most notable main characters of the original animated series to the hearts of fans who’ve seen the show first hand during the 1980s. But will Beyoncé feel comfortable playing the villainess, if Halle Berry is cast as the Sorceress?
