I don't think the writer had a clue that Paul Michael Levesque=Triple H.
Originally posted by Teppan-YakiNothing against the Rock, but him being Prince Adam/He-Man is about as believable as Van Damme being Guile in Street Fighter: The Movie.
I totally agree with this. I think The Rock rules, but he just doesn't come off as the He-Man/Prince Adam type. It has nothing to do whatsoever with his appearance, it has to do with the vibe he exudes.
As far as the case with Triple H, I had the chance to see his appearance on Conan O'Brian recently, and I was genuinely surprised. He came across very well and seemed to be a really amiable guy. The audience also seemed to be really into the interview and Trips didn't come across like a stiff. This could translate well on the big screen.
Plus, if he *DID* get the role of He-Man, it would be a great opportunity for him to demonstrate diverse acting abilities. We know he can be the intense ultra-evil guy with no compassion and the arrogant jerk. The roles he's played in WWE over the years demonstrate that. But, in my opinion, he ALSO has a gift of great comic timing. His skits with Mick Foley in 2000 were a great example of that. If he could show the ability to do drama, play the action hero, and use some of his untapped comedy skills in the Prince Adam alter-ego role, Triple H would be an EXCELLENT He-Man.
If your nose is full of boogers it's snot my fault!
I think Harry as the second Green Goblin (or maybe Hobgoblin) needs to be the logical conclusion to this story arc. Perhaps Spidey can get the symbiote in this film, face off against Goblin as the 'big bad' and Sandman is sort of a tertiary villain.
