Hasbro Cinematic Universe

Go To

Dec 19th 2015 at 3:39:32 PM

Hasbro and Paramount have gotten together to create a cinematic universe. It will consist of GI Joe, Micronauts, Visionairies, M.A.S.K. and ROM Spaceknight.

I assume the Transformers films won't be included, since they're also apparently doing their own cinematic universe?

No, which is sad because I think the one movie everyone wanted to see was GI Joe vs. Transformers (which is an awesome comic).

This sounds like the worst thing in the world.

No My Little Pony? I am disappoint.

There's always cross-universe crossovers. tongue

Although really, this feels like the singularity at which all movies disappear into a black hole forever. Forget comic book universes. Now we have a toy movie universe.

Maybe we should burn Hollywood to the ground and start fresh. Let's watch nothing but French movies for ten years.

I don't think any of the characters mentioned as being a part of this are from board games, actually.

That's too bad, because I would have loved a Clue crossover.

In the modern age, My Little Pony and Transformers are the only two Hasbro franchises that make any sense to crossover, so naturally those two are absent.

I mean, GI-Joe doesn't work with Bayformers because NEST makes them obsolete. You could still have Cobra, but if you're not using THE Joes, you might as well use an original antagonist or drag something out from the Transformer library instead.

Of course a My Little Pony Transformers crossover is best served by an animated movie rather than a live actor one, but then again any Transformers anything is better served by animation or stop motion and that didn't stop Hasbro from licensing a live action one anyway.

That's why he wants you to have the money. Not so you can buy 14 Cadillacs but so you can help build up the wastes

"Oh noes! This new COBRA organization just destroyed NEST!"

"Well, what if we commision a new organization to stop them? We could call them GI Joe!"

"... okay, sure, whatever."

So long as the M.A.S.K crew aren't racing, I'm down with that.

I love Rom: Spaceknight. But I don't know what they can do without the rest of the Marvel universe.

I heard that James Gunn wanted to put ROM in Guardians of the Galaxy, but he couldn't because Marvel didn't have the rights to him. I do known that Marvel has the rights to everything else except ROM himself. I don't know how the film rights to the characters work, but I have a feeling a ROM movie would be an In Name Only adaptation.

And then Marvel could just do Rom by another name? smile

How could Visionaries fit in? It takes place in a world where technology has been destroyed and the new power is magic. Cant see that working with any of these other characters, all of whom are technology based with no magic elements in their franchises AFAIK.

There was a expy of ROM in the Rocket & Groot: Steal the Galaxy prose novel. A Character called Roamer the Space Knight, one of the main antagonists, a Implacable Man Anti-Villain who was a disgraced Space Knight from Galador (like ROM), trying to find his place in the universe. In the novel he basically cuts through entire armies, withstands the temperature of the sun and manages to fight Gamora to a standstill.

So I'm on board with him in a future movie.

There's Ikon, who's the "Greatest Living Spaceknight, save for the guy we can't mention for legal reasons." She's got similar armor to ROM, but sleeker and updated, and she wields a pole-axe instead of the neutralizer. She also led a group called the Annihilators based out of Knowhere.

Watch ROM legally get resolved when Disney inevitably just says "Fuck it" and buys Hasbro on their path to buying and owning everything.

I've said this elsewhere, but does anyone think a Cobra Commander origin film could be good? As long as they keep bug-people from the Himalayas away from it, it could be pretty interesting.
