It looks like the Paramount/Hasbro shared movie universe is a go as GI Joe, Dungeons and Dragons and Micronauts get release dates

December 20th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Well we’ve known for a while that the GI Joe movies we’re likely getting a reboot (here) and that a Hasbro Cinematic Universe was looking more and more likely (here).

And now it looks like the wheels are starting to turn and, despite the absolute mess that was the last Transformers movie, we’re pretty damned excited.

Paramount and Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures have revealed the release date for the first three movies to kick off the universe (we’re guessing that Transformers: The Last Knight, which was meant to be the beginning of the new universe, is no longer the starting point, although we are only speculating so far).

So the first three movies are:

G.I. JOE (March 27, 2020)
Micronauts (Oct. 16, 2020)
Dungeons and Dragons (July 23, 2021)
And also an untitled Hasbro event film which will arrive on Oct. 1, 2021.

On top of this we still have ROM, Visionaries and – most exciting of all – MASK (Mobile Armoured Strike Kommand) movies to come.

Hopefully it is handled better than Universal’s recent Dark Universe because this could be a truly epic, fan pleasing universe and we’re totally in.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
