The guys at Film Divider have been busy as of late. Once again, take these rumors with a grain of salt becasue its still very early in the process, but apparently the villains for the tertiary G.I Joe film have been chosen. And we may get a freakin awesome crossover as well!
It’s being reported that twin bad guys Tomax and Xamot will be raising hell against the Real American Heroes on the big screen. As has been happenng for the franchise across the board, I’d expect the brothers to get a nice “real world” style update before gracing movie theaters.
But that’s not the best part. The Crossover. A lot of hardcore geeks have asked for a possible crossover with Transformers, much like thire comic book and cartoon counterparts. Even though both properties are owned by Hasbro and the films are released by Do Bonaventura Pictures it seemed like the two properties melding in the movies today would be a pipe dream…and you’d still be right. G.I. Joe will not be meeting Transformers.
But they may be teaming up with M.A.S.K.!!!
That’s right, the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, or M.A.S.K. for short, may have a home in the G.I. Joe universe. Word is that Matt Trakker, a main charcater from M.A.S.K. may have a role in the third G.I. Joe movie.While M.A.S.K. was based on a Kenner toyline, Hasbro did buy Kenner. Did they think that this would be an easier meld than Transformers? It’s possible. I think M.A.S.K. melds alittle easier as an unknown commodity than the already continuity heavy Transformers.
I’m just really excited. The little kid in me is jumping up and down like it’s my birthday and I see the bounce castle being inflated in my backyard. I loved M.A.S.K. when I was a youngster. Sure I’m probably looking at it through rose colored glasses, but that’s what being a fan of something is all about.
Could this lead to a possible spinoff film for M.A.S.K.? What will Tomax and Xamot do to earn the ire of the Joes? Is this all just wishful thinking? Hopefully some concrete evidence will come out soon.
What do you think? Should G.I. Joe go wth another villain? Perhaps Zartan and the Dreadnoks? Do you want to see apossible MA.S.K. crossover? Sound off in the comments!
