Paramount and Hasbro to create shared universe with G.I. Joe & other brands

12.15.2015

The last time we heard about G.I. JOE 3, Paramount had moved on to writer Aaron Berg after giving Evan Daugherty and Jonathan Lemkin a shot. That was pretty much it, and while there were rumors about a possible TRANSFORMERS/JOE crossover, it looks like they have other plans. Hollywood Reporter is stating that Paramount and Hasbro's film label, Allspark Pictures, are aiming to create a shared universe between G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionairies, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM.

Much like they've done recently with TRANSFORMERS, a writer's room is expected to be assembled in which to make sense of all this toy-turned-movie madness. There's been no talk about an expected release date for G.I. JOE 3, or who might return from the previous films, but I think we can expect the Joes to have some company on their next mission. Meanwhile, I'll be over here, waiting for my Dino-Riders movie...

Technically, the first three Transformers movie have been Transformers/GI Joe crossovers. You might as well rename Josh Duhamel and Tyrese' characters Duke and Roadblock.

And this is what it's like when worlds collide....

Isn't ROM's and the Micronaut's origins the property of Marvel Comics? I mean, the toys were mass produced and owned by Parker Brothers, but the backstory etc. is from the Marvel think tank.

GI Joe and Transformers' origins were also mostly created by Marvel before they lost the licensing rights, so there really isn't much problem here. At worst, the ROM movie adaptations probably just won't be able to use the Dire Wraiths as the villains.

UGH

So tired of studios and their obsession with creating "universes", especially ones that nobody wants based off of bad movies. Yea... that's a great idea... said no movie fan ever.

Why does everything have to be a shared universe? It is so annoying. Instead of trying to get the GI Joe's on screen with other movies for a shared universe, why not focus on making one really good GI Joe film in theatres.
