G.I Joe Reboot Can Crossover With M.A.S.K And Transformers

2984

We had learned that the twins, Tomax and Xamot might be the main villains for G.I. Joe 3. This report, which had originated at Film Divider claims that Hasbro and Paramount are now looking to re-launch the M.A.S.K. property on for big screen as part of the sequel.

The plan is to feature the M.A.S.K. leader, Matt Trakker in a vital role. M.A.S.K. was the animated series which had launched with a toy line in 1985. This show was about vehicles that could transform into other transportation, and these characters wore cybernetic masks which gave them new abilities. The roots had been set in an espionage thriller, Mission: Impossible and featured muscle cars, with stunts to match. This had lent an element of Fast & Furious to the sequel, and with Dwayne Johnson in the lead roles, this surely does make sense. The Rock is known as a returning cast with Roadblock to be the main character.

By having introduced Matt Trakker, it is not known if Paramount is now setting up a character for many more sequels or just trying to establish a spin-off for the new franchise. When Hasbro had bought Kenner, the MASK had folded into G.I. Joe, and Matt Trakker action figures were released under G.I. Joe’s title.

Film Divider has speculated that G.I. Joe 3 might pursue the MASK concept by having the characters become private contractors. With a sequel in production by spring, we may get more details soon.

Under the supervision of Michael Bay, Hasbro’s movies based on “Transformers” are the most successful movies ones and have grossed $3.7 billion. While many have thought this company’s adaptation of “GI Joe” action figures will be a hit and the entries released in 2009 and 2013 produced pretty modest returns and are not near the same fandom which was generated by Optimus Prime and his crew.

“The world has changed, and I think you’re going to see G.I. Joe changing with it,” Simon Waters had said.

“There’s going to be a much more contemporary approach to the whole franchise, and that will allow us to develop different characters.”

Waters then elaborated that they will take “a more millennial approach” for this reboot and Steve Davis, the chief content officer at this company had explained the idea of modernizing “Joe.”

“We hope to create a head snap. It’s a different kind of ‘Joe’ — one that still resonates with ‘Joe’ fans but brings in an uninitiated audience and expands the audience internationally and domestically,” he had said.
