It was about a year and a half ago when Hasbro laid out their public plans to build a "cross-property interconnected onscreen universe featuring the brands G.I. JoeMicronautsVisionariesM.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM." In the comic world, IDW has already brought this to life with REVOLUTION, a crossover comic that also throws TRANSFORMERS into the mix, and at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, fans will be able to purchase the first toys based on the series in a massive "Mega-Set." This is right up my alley...

Last year, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro revealed their plans to build a "cross-property interconnected onscreen universe featuring the brands G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM." When you hear about such an "interconnected universe," it's not hard to see a line drawn back to the success of what Disney has done with MARVEL, and how other studios (including the folks at Warner Bros. with their "DC Extended Universe") are trying to capture some of that magic. In particular, the Hasbro universe is of great interest to me... a kid (albeit a big one now) that has grown-up with these properties over the past 30+ years and hopes to see them fully-realized in all their potential on the big screen -- especially G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K. Yesterday morning, the players in the "top talent writers room" responsible for bringing these stories to the screen were revealed, and there's some heavy hitters in the mix.
