Transformers & G.I. Joe Crossover Still Happening, Snake Eyes Star Teases ‘Grand Plans’


Summary

  • Snake Eyes
    star Henry Golding hints at grand plans for the
    G.I. Joe
    and
    Transformers
    crossover movie.
  • Paramount still wants a crossover, but timing is uncertain.
  • Originally set for 2025, a
    G.I. Joe/Transformers
    crossover film was delayed due to strikes, potentially now aiming for 2026.



Though 2021’s Snake Eyes was set to kick off a new beginning for the G.I. Joe franchise, Robert Schwentke’s film ended up being a box office flop that didn’t even bring in half its budget. That didn’t stop Paramount from teasing a long-awaited crossover between the elite Special Forces unit and the Transformers, as 2023’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts saw an ending that hinted at a possible union between the two. There hasn’t been much in the way of news since, but Snake Eyes star Henry Golding has offered somewhat of an update that promises a joint venture is still to come.


Speaking with ComicBook.com to promote his new film, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, Golding told that outlet that he believes Paramount still has “grand plans” to bring the two franchises together once and for all. However, he doesn’t know when that will happen, given that producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is a busy man. Check out Golding’s full comments below.

“I mean, Lorenzo di Bonaventura is a busy man and a phenomenal producer, and it’s in safe hands. Whatever happens, I think it’s going to be a combination of what has come and what is to come. I think Paramount have some grand, grand plans.”

Snake Eyes

A G.I. Joe spin-off centered around the character of Snake Eyes.

Release Date
July 23, 2021


For his part, di Bonaventura also spoke to ComicBook.com back in February 2024 and echoed Golding’s sentiments on a potential G.I. Joe/Transformers crossover, but at that time, the producer admitted he had no idea what its current state of affairs was, and could only promise that it will eventually happen.

“The honest truth is I don’t know. I know we are going to deliver on the promise we made.”


A G.I. Joe/Transformers Crossover Was Tentatively Scheduled for 2025

Though at the moment no one seems to know what’s going on with a G.I. Joe and Transformers shared universe film, back in mid-2023, di Bonaventura revealed that a script for the movie was about to be written, which could have meant a 2025 release for the film. Unfortunately, the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes happened before everything could be put in motion, and plans at that time were scraped. Check out his comments on the matter below, which he hints at a potential 2026 release instead.


“It’s a good question. We were about to start a script when the writers’ strike happened. So, our hope was we were going to have it for 2025, but I think the longer the strike goes on, the more it puts it in 2026.”

The director of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts explained that wild crossover ending, how it came about, and the potential Hasbro Cinematic Universe.

With no news being offered by Paramount, and di Bonaventura himself seemingly in the dark at the moment as to what’s going on, it appears as if fans of the Hasbro creations will have to wait even longer now to see their beloved franchises share the screen for a feature-length film. However, fans of Transformers won’t have to wait long for another installment in the long-running series, as the animated film, Transformers One, which stars Scarlett Johannson, is set to hit theaters on September 13, 2024.


Snake Eyes
and
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts
are both available to stream on Paramount+.
