Hasbro & Paramount to Turn a Bunch of Shit into Shared Cinematic Universe


Everything has to be a fucking franchise now, doesn't it? It's getting borderline ridiculous, between the comic book movies, Star Wars spin-offs, Universal's stupid plan for a monster shared universe, and now Paramount and Hasbro are teaming up once more to create a new shared cinematic universe that features such properties as G.I. Joe, Transformers, and a whole bunch of shit you don't remember unless you're over 35.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (link below), the deal would first see future G.I. Joe sequels featuring characters from such beloved dead properties as M.A.S.K., Micronauts, Visionaries, and ROM. Hasbro and Allspark Pictures—which is overseeing the Transformers sequels currently in development—will team up to draw out a roadmap for potential crossover films. All of this leading up to what would presumably be the unification of the two franchises in some big blow-out epic bullshit movie.

Is it me or are all of these disgruntled fans that love this shit are suddenly all in charge of bringing it to the big screen and they just want to do as much as humanly possible. I'll allow Ian Malcolm to further explain my theory on these shared cinematic universes. Simply replace the word scientists with the word producers...
