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.

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

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.

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.

"Those are probably not likely to see the light of day, unless they’re moving on separate from us," said Goldstein. "It’s a funny thing. We spent three weeks in a room with a lot of talented writers. We broke 11 or so movies and, I don’t know. It just kind of went into the vortex. There’s been some leadership changes at Paramount, so it’s hard to say. Nobody’s contacted us about those."

Rated X wrote:Mask was kind of far fetched anyways. To think some pop up Lambo doors could act as wings is ridiculous. Plus a helicoptor that can turn into a jet in mid air was also pretty far fetched. I did own the motorcycle sidecar thing as a kid because I thought it was kind of cool. But as I look back, I can see why the producers and writers just said no...
1) It was a Camero, not a Lambo.
2) Because super hero's and boy wizards aren't far fetched at all.

Rom I've really come to love, but should probably justbe sold to Marvel - Dire Wraiths have tied into Skrulls before, or they could be adapted to tie into the Brood or Klyntyr - either way Rom and his enemies make good elements for post-Thanos GotG/Cpt. Marvel.
