Looks like trouble’s brewing in paradise. The latest development at Paramount suggests that Hasbro Cinematic Universe will ramp down by omitting M.A.S.K. and ROM: The Space Knight movies from the proposed series.
“Those are probably not likely to see the light of day, unless they’re moving on separate from us,” said Jonathan 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.”
However, G.I. Joe and Micronauts movies will go ahead as planned. Rather than take place in the same continuity as the previous two G.I. Joe movies, the new entry will be a reboot that hits theaters on March 27, 2020. As for Micronauts, it will be released on October 16, 2020.
Speaking to the press ahead of UK Toy Fair 2018 tomorrow, Hasbro Vice President Stephen Davis stated that G. I. Joe will see “the action hero and his crew team with other Hasbro properties“.
We await for further development.
