In January 2018, Paramount announced that ''M.A.S.K.'' had been dropped from the Hasbro cinematic universe--but in April they revealed that there would still be a ''M.A.S.K.'' film, which would be directed by F. Gary Gray (''Film/{{Friday}}'', ''Film/StraightOuttaCompton'', ''Film/TheFateOfTheFurious'') and developed as "a contemporary subculture movie with a youth empowerment angle".

Not to be confused with ''Film/TheMask'', or the docudrama ''[[Film/{{Mask}} Mask]]'' starring Cher (it doesn't help that the latter film came out the same year).

December 2015 saw Hasbro and Creator/{{Paramount}} announcing the formation of a shared Hasbro movie universe (using the ''G.I. Joe'' movies as a starting point), which will include this series, as well as the ''Toys/{{Micronauts}}'', the ''WesternAnimation/{{Visionaries}}'' and ''[[ComicBook/RomSpaceknight ROM]]''. 2016 had Creator/IDWPublishing announcing a rebooted comic based on the series, to be part of the new ComicBook/HasbroComicUniverse, starting with the crossover ''[[ComicBook/Revolution2016 Revolution]]''; Miles Mayhem here [[CompositeCharacter was previously a member of]] [[Franchise/GIJoe Joe Colton's Adventure Team]], and parts of the M.A.S.K. tech was reverse-engineered from [[CanonWelding Decepticon Triple-Changer Blitzwing]] (M.A.S.K. having started as an anti-Transformer initiative operated by the Earth Defense Command as a subdivision of the GI Joe Team); after the events of ''Revolution'', a ''M.A.S.K.'' ongoing started, with Matt and the rest of M.A.S.K. now on the run, trying to track down Mayhem ([[spoiler: who had turned traitor and been working with [[ComicBook/MicronautsIDW Baron Karza]]; when that went south during the Revolution, Mayhem vanished, but has now reappeared with several former M.A.S.K. agents, now operating as V.E.N.O.M]]). Tropes for that adaptation can be found [[{{ComicBook/MASK}} here]]

In 2011, Creator/{{Hasbro}} released a one-off comic titled ''[[Trivia/Revolution2016 Unit: E]]'', which attempted to crossover Hasbro's more famous lines such as ''G.I. Joe'', ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'', and other, not-so-famous (or even out-of-left-field) properties like ''Toys/{{Micronauts}}'', ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan'', ''Stretch Armstrong'', and even ''TabletopGame/CandyLand''. [[http://www.oafe.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UnitE2.jpg Here]], it seemed to have been [[CompositeCharacter roughly merged]] with another Hasbro property, ''WesternAnimation/{{COPS}}''; it took place in a futuristic, (even more) dystopian UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}}, where the government has left the Motor City's people to fend for themselves, resulting in widespread chaos. An ancient workshop belonging to the "League of Ancient Wheelmen" was found and used by Matt Trakker (now a police officer) and a new team of civil servants, who use the tech they found to help Detroit's citizenry and combat the decay, as M.A.S.K.

* ILied: In "Assault on Liberty", V.E.N.O.M. threatens to destroy the UsefulNotes/StatueOfLiberty unless it's paid a huge ransom. Near the end, Mayhem smugly says "I would have blown the statue up anyhow, just so they would know who they're dealing with." [[spoiler:This is immediately followed by M.A.S.K. pulling a BigDamnHeroes moment.]]

**In one of the AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle segments, Scott positions a ladder on T-Bob's foot. The robot complains about feeling pain. Both Matt and Scott find this amusing and burst out laughing.
