Like so many kids playing together in the '80s, Paramount and Hasbro are going to pretend that G.I. Joe, Micronauts, M.A.S.K., ROM, and Visionaries toys make sense in the same world. THR reports that the companies have announced a deal whereby a series of films will create "an interconnected, cross-property onscreen universe" based on the aforementioned, largely-forgotten properties, finally building a cinematic Island of Misfit Toys. Should that not find an audience, the companies have plans to instead introduce a franchise where it's just 30-somethings directly addressing the camera to say, "Hey, remember Rock Lords, Supernaturals, Sky Commanders, Sectaurs, and shit? How about those things?"
