Here’s a bit of interesting news that comes to us by way of FilmDivider. According to the article, the Cobra Crimson Guard Commanders, Tomax and Xamot, are set to be the main villians in the 3rd installment. That’s not all though – Also set to make an appearance in the film is none other than Matt Trakker, the leader of M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand)!
Here are a couple of excerpts from the article –
We understand that the villains this time will be Tomax and Xamot, mainstays of the Sunbow cartoon series and the Marvel comics. This pair are, according to their original backstories, Corsican twins who worked as mercenaries before becoming merchant bankers.
Tomax and Xamot are tailor made for the GI Joe movies, hitting that same balance of modern techno-thriller plausibility and flat-out goofy. The filmmakers are looking to cast one actor in both roles, and whoever gets lucky will have the chance to really cut loose. Sam Rockwell seems to have just the experience to pull off all sides of both parts, if he could be tempted.
According to the studio’s current plans, Matt Trakker will be stepping up onto the big screen. he was the lead character of MASK, or Mobile Armoured Strike Kommand, a Kenner toy line and cartoon from the ‘80s.
I don’t know about you, but if this holds true, I’m beyond excited to see Matt Trakker or any MASK related characters and vehicles on the big screen, especially alongside our beloved Modern Army Action Figures! What are your thoughts? Sound off after the break!

According to comicbookmovie.com, the crimson twins & Matt Tracker from M.A.S.K. "may" appear in Joe 3.
Thanks for the heads up, VC! Since CBM grabbed the info from FilmDivider, I'll make sure to reference them.
I'm guessing a MASK movie could be in our future?
Tomax & Xamot says
SWEET I hope it's true!!!
Awesome! Hasbro did say they had plans of making M.A.S.K. Figures
It will OBVIOUSLY be Shia LeBoeuf cast as the Crimson Twins. Since the DJ Caruso *might be* tabbed as the director, and since he worked with Shia in two of his previous movies. OBVIOUSLY.

I could see a merging of the two properties. Sort of like MASK being the civil leg of the Global Intergrated Joint Operating whatever the E stands for.
VENOM would of course be the venom of Cobra.
My opinion: MASK has the potential to "get over" more in today's market place than Joe does so why not combine the two and milk the best bits from both.
Heck, sprinkle in a little Inhumanoids in there and set this beast on fire.
interesting but wasn't rockwell already in the Gi joe movies ?
I want to see how they handle the Crimson twins. Can't wait for 2016, we've got a lot of great films coming out that year.
WHAT…that could be epic!
