I feel like these discussions always turn into "what's most likely" or "what's commercially viable" which is all well and good, but simply answer the question what do I want as a fan...
Well, most people have answered as fans. As a fan, I want an entertaining product. Regardless of when it is set.
Exactly. To cite my usual example, the Hammer "Frankenstein" movies are not set in the same continuity as the Universal "Frankenstein" movies. Even when I was a kid, that never bothered me . . . as long as the movies were good.
Ditto for Tarzan, James Bond, Batman . . . or Star Trek.
Series get remade and rebooted all the time. It's part of the natural life-cycle of any popular fictional creation.
