According to The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that Toy manufacturer Hasbro wants a slice of that Movie Pie that Marvel has been reaping tons of revenue from thanks to their hugely successful films. Hasbro has assembled writers for their very own Cinematic Universe which consists of their toy intellectual properties; GIJoe, ROM, Visionaries, MASK and The Micronauts. (Fucking, Yes!!)

 

“Michael Chabon, who wrote the novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and worked on Spider-Man 2; Brian K. Vaughan, the creator of seminal comic works Y: The Last Man and Saga and showrunner of Under the Dome; and Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel co-writer Nicole Perlman, will help develop a plan for the creation of an interconnected onscreen universe featuring Hasbro’s G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM brands.”

 

Allspark Productions (Named after the Macguffin, “Allspark” from the Transformers Movie) has recruited Black and Women artists to that will offer diverse perspectives as well as honoring female empowerment. This is a bold move that may help to set the precedent for Minorities and Women who are known to have less opportunities within the field as compared to their Caucasian male counterparts.

Personally, I think Allspark should reach out to Storyboard artist Larry Houston who was responsible for one of the best animated intros in film! It seems that my article actually came true.

Now if only Allspark will produce a really good G.I.Joe Movie that will not only treat this IP with care and utmost respect, but also make everyone forget about the bastardized Rise of Cobra. Yo,Joe!

    I’m waiting for these shared universes to share other universes. I’m also glad I’ll be dead soon…

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Never in a bajillion years would I have thought I’d see a “Visionaries” movie.

    Also, “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay” was a great book.

  • Stalkeye

    Ouch! I really hope that this comes into fruition within my lifespan. X)

  • Stalkeye

    I think i was in the minority when I said that Visionaries was a great concept.
    it was Hasbro’s answer to MOTU but unfortunately, the toyline and animated series failed to impress the younger demographic.
    Perhaps, the Movie will revitalize the franchise. I also pray for an Inhumanoids film.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    This would make for an awesome movie. One of the best cartoons/toys of the 80s.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    I don’t see the need for this, quite frankly. Some of these properties might make good movies on their own, but why do they have to be in a “shared universe” (yeah, yeah, I know: profit)? There’s no connection between any of them other than the Hasbro brand.

    Also, I’m annoyed that ROM and Micronauts aren’t part of the MCU. They should be. It was Marvel who expanded the mythology of those IPs and made them great, not the toy company!

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    I remember that one. It got a lot of flack from parent groups for scaring the kiddies. Especially with freaky scenes voiced by the legendary Chris Latta (Starscream), like these:

  • Stalkeye

    The man was a true legend. RIP

  • Stalkeye

    Loved the series and manged to grab the DVD!
    30 Years, wow!!

  • Stalkeye

    X)

  • Stalkeye

    Agreed, but you can thank Lawyers for Marvel losing the IPs.
    If only Hasbro can secure the concept created by Bill Mantlo/Marvel, we would get some really cool shit down the pipeline!!

  • Sagamanus

    Hanna Barbara is ramping up their uni too from what I read. It means Herculoids, and Galaxy Trio.

  • Stalkeye

    No Birdman or SpaaaaacccccceeeGhoooooooossstt?

  • Sagamanus

    Ahh Space Ghost is probably their flagship. So I would assume so.

  • Bop

    A M.A.S.K movie? Bring it on. T-Bob ‘d better be in it.

  • Bop

    If there is one voice I will always remember it’s Latta’s. It is so unique.

  • Bop

    True

  • KilliK

    Wouldnt mind this but it will fail miserably.

  • KilliK

    loved that show and yeah, Visionaries has a cool concept.

  • Stalkeye

    No one does a better Cobra Commander or Starscream than Latta! BTW Its good to see Eliza Dushku in Banshee. (Yummy!)
    I’m just disappointed that the movie based on the game, WET didn’t happen. https://www.vg247.com/2009/10/08/eliza-dushku-may-work-on-movie-version-of-wet/

  • Stalkeye

    Unless JC could produce or direct at least one of the IP based films. But he’s too busy nowadays. (;’

  • Bop

    So you saw it? I was disappointed with this ep and seeing Dushku doing dope was not cool.

  • Stalkeye

    Yeah, but seeing her suck on the “Glass Dick” like that. WHOA! x)

  • Captain Genius

    this makes me wish i had illustrated my Great Sunbow War comic book cover idea years ago. maybe i could have gotten into the writers room for this.

  • Captain Genius

    fucking ideas for days
