It's been a very long while since we heard anything about Paramount's shared live-action cinematic universe - which would expand the mythology surrounding Transformers to other franchises, much like is currently happening in IDW comics (since Revolution and more recently First Strike) - but we now have something happening on the horizon.

According to entertainment online outlet Deadline, 2020 will see the arrival of the third instalment of the GI Joe series, after Rise of Cobra and Retaliation, and the first feature for Micronauts, with a third unnamed project for the following year. You can read the news in detail below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub - what do you make of this potential, eventual converging and merging of the various franchises? Will you give the new movies a shot?

The long-awaited third G.I. Joe will march into multiplexes on March 27, 2020. Lorenzo di Bonaventura produced the last two movies G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation based off the Hasbro toyline/Marvel published Comic-Book which both grossed in total over $678M at the global box office.

The feature adaptation of late ’70s Mego/Takara toys spaceman line Micronauts will blast off on Oct. 16, 2020. The toyline was centered around robotic/human future men, and the playsets were elaborate with various easy-to-assemble parts.

Currently for 2020, both G.I. Joe and Micronauts are the only titles scheduled on their respective release dates.

Dungeons & Dragons will open on July 23, 2021. New Line made a go at a feature version of the popular 1970s/1980s role-playing game 17 years ago making only $33.8M. There was also a Saturday morning CBS animated TV series which ran for 27 episodes from 1983-1985. Currently, it’s the only title on the calendar on that date.

An untitled Hasbro film has also reserved Oct. 1, 2021 on the calendar. No other titles on that date.

Hope it’s good! I wasn’t a a fan of the first one but I did enjoy the the second one just fine. You could tell the director was a fan and did what he could with it with trying to bring some faith to GI joe

Didn't help that the first one also seemed to take some inspiration from the G.I. Joe: Sigma 6 series.

Even though I have little faith in a 3rd Joe movie, let's hope it will be good and successful enough to revive this dead franchise.

....For the love of God! Who's still giving this Studio greenlights?????!

Seriously! The last 2 years have resulted in flops to barely breaking even. Just look at Paramount's 2017:

2016 they had about 3 successful films who's profits swallowed up thanks to 12 flops!

Then again this crap explains why the Transformers IDW-verse has been compromised with crappy crossovers in hopes of building up hype for these films. So at this rate I wouldn't mind Disney buying Hasbro, Paramount and IDW since they all wanna half@ss the MCU's methods anyway.

SO am I the only one here who is geeked about a big budget D and D movie???? Because everything else was expected, but I didn't know anything about Dungeons and Dragons coming back! Here's hoping it's better than Warcraft... :POPCORN:

I would like to see them do a combine universe with these series, but I really think you need to start over with GI Joe. I didn't care for either movie.
The idea has potential, but they need to be more serious about it, and not just do so many things on what seems to be a whim.

There was never a direct face off. He took on Firefly directly, but no Cobra Commander.
