    Hasbro shared cinematic universe

    I just read this article from Toyark:

    Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner had this to say:

    “Hasbro’s great brands G. I. Joe, Micronauts, ROM, M.A.S.K and Visionaries. Paramount and Hasbro’s AllSpark Pictures are producing these films which will develop deep stories and great characters as we imagine the future of these brands.”

    It seems as though the future of the above franchises depends on the success of upcoming movies.
    ... Hasbro will be more involved with the Live Action Movies and today’s announcement of co-production with Paramount confirms the statement...
    I like the idea of bringing back Micronauts, Rom, M.A.S.K. & Visionnares (a lot) but based on the preview art interpretation, the only one that looks interesting is Visionnares.
    M.A.S.K. looks like a cheap Hotwheels-Speed Racer mix and Micronauts seems to be "attached" to the new Transformers trilogy.

    Sadly, G.I.Joe & Transformers movies are quite poor in storytelling, so I really doubt about the future of this shared universe.
    I just wish a quite wise director that realizes about the nostalgic value of these properties and how the former public of those cartoons/toylines have intellectually evolved in order to deliver a good fun movie ( such as SW:TFA or Avengers), not a dumb "fun" movie (Bay's TF & TMNT > TMNT 2 looks more interesting though)

    I have no problems with what they are planning to do. It beats the properties just sitting there doing nothing. The only one I am slightly disappointed in is ROM. He really does belong in the MCU with the rest of his Marvel brethren. I would love to see a Marvel ROM movie that would be the first sci-fi horror one as he battles the Dire Wraiths.

    A Rom movie would be nice, but, at this point I would be content just to be able to get some collected trades of the original series

    I mainly consumed those properties through the cartoons, and I have read little to nothing regarding ROM, but clearly since its mythology has been developed through Marvel Universe, it certainly would be quite suitable to be introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy or the next Avengers: Infinity War, but not likely.

    My main disappointment comes from the Joe movies and now seeing that M.A.S.K. concept. If any director have decided to recreate some scenes from the cartoon, such as the intros (movie intro would have been out of this world) or keep some of the magic (Knuckles as brief comic relief if necessary, just a cameo of Timber or something like that) Joe movie may have been more watchable. I still think that the best Joe combat scene is in "Edge of tomorrow" beach head scene.

    M.A.S.K. seems to have the same concept artist from Speed Racer, which was a train wreck, and new movie shall lack the talent of Wachowski bros for sure.

    A Visionaries movie could be phenomenal.

    QFT wasn't Rom going to be something stupid like a Transformer??? Sell him to Marvel they MADE him the character everyone knows anyway....Either that or have Disney buy Hasbro...

    I would be happy for a standalone MASK movie but I remember a few years ago they released a Matt Tracker figure as a specialist of GI JOE implying MASK was a division of it so it could work as a shared universe - dont know enough about the other properties but wasnt visionairies on another planet (or in the past)?

    I'm excited to see what they do with these. I'm really stoked for M.A.S.K. as I love that line as a kid.

    I don't think I've ever heard of ROM though.
