You know what I just realized,Universal owns Dreamworks which owns Classic Media.They own the Gold Key catalog (Turok ,Doctor Solar, Magnus:Robot Fighter) They could have used those characters to build a shared universe, but they went with the Universal Monsters ?

[up] I know I don't speak for everyone, but the only one of those that I've heard of is Turok, and even then, I'm only vaguely familiar with that one. In contrast, everybody knows the classic Universal Monsters.

True ,but they basically tried the monster INTO superheroes.While that might work for some (making the Invisible Man a spy flick is kinda interesting) ,Plus after the success of stuff like Doom Patrol and Guardians of the Galaxy.obscurity shouldn’t be a factor at this point, what matters is concept.I don’t claim to speak for everyone, but I think seeing a Native American warrior fighting cyborg dinosaurs ,aliens ,and colonists would be an easy sell .

With Terminator: Dark Fate under performing, I think it's safe to say that Paramount is in crisis mode. At this point they are trying to keep whatever franchises they own afloat.

A Tarantino Star Trek film? Sure why not? It might help us recover from Beyond.

What? You didn't like the new Sonic design? Don't worry we'll do a complete redesign of the character. Please don't leave us.

The only franchises they have that are doing successfully are Mission Impossible and Transformers. Of course they can't rely only on two.

Expect them to pressure Hasbro to fast-track Power Rangers and their Hasbro Cinematic Universe with Transformers, PR, and GI Joe. They might want to shoehorn TMNT in there because why not?

Didn't most of the Transformers movies rake in cash on modest budgets? Why else would Paramount pump out so many?

They did, but it seemed the lack of quality was eventually starting to catch up with them. The Last Knight underperformed and did significantly less than Age of Extinction, and Bumblebee, despite being really damn good, ended up with the lowest gross of the entire franchise. Which is a shame, since it was easily the best of them.

[up][up][up] Bumblebee failed to recoup its budget domestically (which is where most of the studio's money comes from).

Universal is really trying to appeal to families, they have their own channel, but aside from Dreamworks or Illumination , what do they have?

What's weird is that almost all Universal's "family-friendly" programming is exclusive to Netflix. If they planned that well , that Jurassic Park show could have their flagship show.

Disney's success can only last so long. I have a feeling when the juices run out, it'll be a murky future for the studios.
