Ever since it became clear that we would have both Transformers and G.I. Joe franchises at the multiplex, fans have been curious to see if a crossover movie would ever materialize. After all, mixing and matching Transformers and G.I. Joe toys was a staple of many childhoods, and Hasbro is behind both feature film adaptations. The former film series remains one of the more successful franchises in rotation, with Michael Bay’s fourth film, Transformers: Age of Extinction, poised to make a hefty amount at the box office as well. As for G.I. Joe, a third film is now in the works with Dwayne Johnson at the center as Roadblock.
Steve recently sat down with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura in anticipation of the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction, and he asked di Bonaventura (who produces both Transformers and G.I. Joe) if a crossover might ever happen. The producer explained that there’s no need for a mash-up movie when both franchises are going strong on their own, but didn’t rule out the possibility in the far future. More after the jump.
