Hasbro Cinematic Universe

Last December, Paramount Pictures announced the development of a shared cinematic universe based on their Hasbro properties – including G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), Micronauts, Visionairies, and ROM – similar to the one they are currently working on for their extremely lucrative Transformers franchise. The next logical step was to assemble a team of creative samurai to help them foster Hollywood’s latest attempt to one-up Marvel to the silver screen.

The studio just announced that they have put together a jaw-dropping writers’ room that includes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon (The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Wonder Boys) and Eisner Award-winning comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Saga).

G.I. Joe: Retaliation - The Rock and Channing Tatum

Everyone has or wants their very own shared universe these days, trying to mimic the success that Marvel has had. But if Paramount Pictures has their way, they’ll have at least two shared universes in the coming years.

We already know that, after four movies directed by Michael Bay and a fifth on the way, Paramount is developing a Transformers shared universe with a large team of writers and plans for spinoffs, prequels, and so on. Now comes word that Paramount is developing yet another shared universe, this time bringing together five other Hasbro properties including G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), Micronauts, Visionairies, and ROM.

Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #5 review

G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #5
Written by Mike Costa
Art by Paolo Villanelli
Colors by Joana LaFuente
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Edits by Carlos Guzman
Cover art by Paolo Villanelli & Joana LaFuente and Drew Johnson & Romulo Fajardo Jr.
IDW Publishing
Release Date: May 13, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #5 is stunning. That’s the good news. The bad news is, that’s pretty much all I can say about it without spoiling anything. Seriously, this is one of the hardest reviews I’ve ever had to writer. Every page of this book could be considered a spoiler. But, I’ll do my best.

There’s a reason that Mike Costa writes a lot of G.I. Joe comics. He’s really really good at it. So, if you’ve been keeping up on the title (which you REALLY should be), you know that Jinx and Billy are on the run from somebody’s who’s trying to kill them. This issue, we find out why and the answer will shock you and at the same time, it’s just flat out brilliant. PLUS….OK, this is impossible to keep up with at this point.

Release Date: March 25, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

In G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes, Agent of Cobra #3 we get more kick butt action than you could ask for! The mystery of why Snake Eyes is working for Cobra takes a back seat this issue, but that’s ok, there’s plenty of other stuff to keep us entertained and to keep the story moving. But, there is a little something missing from this issue. Want to find out what it is? Read on.

G.I. Joe #7 review

G.I. Joe, Volume 4 #7
Written by Karen Traviss
Art by Steve Kurth
Colors by Kito Young
Letters by Tom B. Long
Edits by John Barber
Cover art by Jeffrey Veregge and Dheeraj Verma with Sanjay
IDW Publishing
Release Date: April 1, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #7 continues the story of Cobra versus a group of renegades with what’s left of the G.I. Joe team literally caught in the middle. This book is way more than “good guys vs. bad guys,” it’s almost a political thriller mashed-up with an action movie. If you’re looking for the colorful garb of the Joes or Cobras, you won’t find any of that here.

IDW Publishing
Release Date: March 4, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #6 gives us some much needed closure. Not complete and total closure of the book, but some great wrap-ups on some storylines, and a lot of forward movement on some other storylines. And, that’s just a bonus, because the rest of the issue is pretty awesome!

Release Date: February 25, 2015

In GI Joe: Snake Eyes Agent of Cobra #2, the “Holy crap what the heck am I looking at?!?!?!” factor continues, in a big way. This book is the unexpected gem of IDW’s current output of GI Joe books, and that’s saying something, because the other ones are not too shabby at all!

‘Eagle Eye’ Director D.J. Caruso In Talks For ‘G.I. Joe 3’

G.I. Joe: Retaliation - The Rock and Channing Tatum

Eagle Eye director D.J. Caruso is in talks to direct G.I. Joe 3, according to THR.

Caruso would take the helm from Jon M. Chu, who directed the previous Joe film, 2013’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and had been expected to return for this third installment, but he eventually moved on to go work on a live-action Jem and the Holograms movie.

Over a year after Paramount greenlit a third Joe film in early 2013, it was revealed that the story, from a script by Jonathan Lemkin, would center more on Dwayne Johnson‘s character, Roadblock. Caruso and Johnson will reportedly need to meet privately before the deal is sealed. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is back producing, along with Hasbro’s Brian Goldner.

Release Date: September 24, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe #1 ushers in a new era of awesomeness for the Joe team. It’s G.I. Joe against Cobra, the…..peacekeepers. Yes. You read that right. Peacekeepers. As in people who keep the peace. Let’s see how that works out for them.

For the first time in history, G.I. Joe has a woman at the helm. Literally. Writer Karen Traviss makes the jump from military fiction novels to comics, and the one burning question that I have is, why didn’t she do it sooner?
