    Thats really what I think the problem is. They want More Now instead of later, but the thing about that is that you have to earn it.


    Marvel didn’t make the MCU in one film, it took them years before we got the first Avengers. These days studios want the cinematic universe money but don’t want to put forth the work and they fail every time. You have to make audiences care first otherwise it means nothing.


    What they should have done is a “soft remake” of the 2007 film with a group of soldiers pulled into the Autobot and Decepticon war as it makes it way to Earth, have those soldiers be Duke, Scarlet, Roadblock, etc. Then at the end have them be recruited into GI Joe and have that lead to it’s own movie. Then have the team up movie.


    Really, the idea is perfect and works really well. The problem is that they can’t hire competent writers and want to rush straight into a massive crossover blockbuster becuase they think they’ll just instantly rake in Avengers money.

    Lorenzo and Bay are the wrong people, and have been the wrong people for a decade. Those two names should strike fear in the hearts of any franchise fan.

    "Dude it looks like a Gundam movie is in production!" "wow who's producing / directing?" ...."Lorenzo and Bay" "oh F@#$, guess I'll never see a good Gundam movie, at least there's quality anime to watch..."

    Madame Web should be a red flag for Hasbro. As should Transformers Last Knight, GI Joe Retalirion, Rise of Cobra and Snake Eyes.

    I feel like Michael Bay is exactly the director for G.I. Joe. His love for military and human action is ideal for G.I. Joe. We've met him during TF movie production and he is a cool dude to meet. He's very passionate about what he does and sure loves to talk about it as well. TFw2005 site owner Tony B. said they had a great time on set with him.

    On paper he feels like a director who's better suited to GI Joe than he ever was for Transformers.

    I'm skeptical he could make it a success though, I look at his films and think "he could put his visual style onto the concept, but would he add/do anything that would attract people?" I'm not saying Bay can't make a successful film (he's done so in the past), but would his film be significantly different from, and better than, the last two GI Joe films, enough to attract an audience? I have my doubts. At best, we'd end up with something like GI Joe meets The Rock (which wouldn't be bad, but I don't think would be a monster hit for today's audiences), and at worst we'd see something that has the weakest parts of previous films from both franchises so far.

    Cool to see they learned absolutely nothing from Rise of the Beasts, not that I'm surprised.
    Found this particularly amusing
    Exactly like what people who wanted a G.I. Joe crossover were hoping for, right?

    Can we not have G.I. Joe anywhere near Transformers?

    Thanks.

    I'll be amazed if this actually ever happens.

    G.I. Joe and Transformers crossover is most likely to happen

    As bad of a horrible train wreck of a film as that would be, having Char going around citing all the legal reasons why his relationship with his underage teenage subordinates isn't at all inappropriate according to the various Zeon statutes (which he could've written himself depending on when the movie takes place) would be 100% on brand for both.
