Paramount Slates ‘G.I.Joe’ and ‘Micronauts’ for 2020; Hasbro Crossover Event in 2021?!
Today, Paramount Pictures announced a slate of several of their upcoming franchises. They announced another G.I.Joe film is in the works and will hit theatres March 27th, 2020. It’s unknown if this is a reboot film or a sequel to G.I.Joe: Retaliation with Dwayne Johnson. They also went on to announce that the long-in-development Micronauts movie will hit the same year October 16th, 2020.
Finally, it was announced that an Untitled Hasbro/Paramount Event film will smash onto theaters October 1st, 2021. It’s unknown what this film could be but many are speculating the long rumoured Transformers/G.I.Joe crossover comic may be adapted for a film. With Paramount creating their own cinematic universe with Transformers it’s only a matter of time until the Joe’s meet Optimus Prime. However, this is just pure fan speculation.
It should be noted that in 2014 long time Tranformers & G.I.Joe producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura did confirm that Paramount has at least considered a crossover movie. “No doubt somewhere in the future we’ll figure that out, but I think it’s a while in the future.” It could end up being a G.I.Joe, Micronuts crossover with ROM and M.a.s.k. A cinematic universe was announced back in 2015.
