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.

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:

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/studio/cha ... amount.htm

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

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/studio/cha ... amount.htm


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.

Maybe we will finally get The Rock and the Transformers in the same movie.

It's been some time since we heard any news regarding the Hasbro/Paramount cinematic universe. While your dreams of seeing G.I. Joe and Transformers in the same live-action movie universe may still happen, it appears that certain properties may not see a live-action big screen adventure after all. Scotty P pointed us to an article on IGN's website that features an interview with John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, writers on the well-received Spider-Man: Homecoming movie, regarding the shared cinematic universe, and for the ROM and M.A.S.K properties in particular:

"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."


How does this news strike you? Were you hoping to see ROM battling the Dire Wraiths on the big screen? You can read the full interview by clicking here. Please let us know your thoughts on this new development (or lack of development, rather) below!

He's just a writer from the writers room, there's no guarantee he was going to be asked to write anyway.

Disappointing, I'd much rather see a M.A.S.K. film over transformers at this point.

IDW failed with the M.A.S.K. comic. They changed too much from the original, loosing what made it work. The editor in charge should be fired and black listed from comics.

I wonder how much of this is to do with TLK's failure. Still, not like Im particularly sad- I have zero attachment to Rom or M.A.S.K (though I will admit the 80s toyline for the latter looked pretty sweet) and I can't see reboot movies working all that well. Transformers worked because it has a history of being rebooted and reimagined every five minutes. M.A.S.K and Rom don't have that.

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.

M.A.S.K. could really just be folded into a G.I.Joe reboot; they mesh so well there's not much reason to keep the stories separate.

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.
