Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt may be the next "most Powerful Man in the Universe".

The Troy star could gain the famous title of the Master Of The Universe by playing He-Man in the next evocative movie remake.

Legendary Pictures, the group responsible for Superman Returns are finalizing plans to reintroduce the Eighties heroic fictional character in a 2007 avatar.

"They are very keen on Brad for the role. He'll have to bulk up though, he's very fit but not to He-Man proportions," The Sun quoted a movie source, as saying.

However, if Brad does not approve of building up his physique, film bosses have a back up in mind.

300 star Gerard Butler, is reported to be under consideration to play the part in the remake.

Last time He-Man hit the big screen was in 1987, when Cannon films produced a live-action film, Masters of the Universe, which starred Dolph Lundgren.
