G.I. Joe And Transformers Crossover Film Delayed Until 2026

Snake Eyes failed to meet box office expectations.

In 2021, the release of Snake Eyes was anticipated to mark a fresh start for the G.I. Joe franchise. However, the film directed by Robert Schwentke failed to meet box office expectations, falling short of recouping its budget. Despite this setback, Paramount hinted at a potential crossover between G.I. Joe and Transformers in the future.

The conclusion of 2023's Transformers: Rise of the Beasts teased a potential collaboration between the elite Special Forces unit and the Transformers, sparking excitement among fans. While concrete details have been scarce since then, Henry Golding, the lead actor in Snake Eyes, recently provided an update suggesting that plans for a joint venture are still in the works.

In a recent interview, Golding expressed confidence in Paramount's 'grand plans' to unite the two iconic franchises. However, the timeline for this crossover remains uncertain, as producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is currently occupied with other projects.

Di Bonaventura also acknowledged the potential for a G.I. Joe/Transformers crossover in a previous interview, affirming the commitment to fulfilling the promise made to fans. Despite the enthusiasm surrounding this collaboration, the producer admitted to being unaware of the current status of the project.

While a script for the shared universe film was reportedly on the verge of being developed in mid-2023, progress was halted due to industry strikes, delaying the anticipated 2025 release. Di Bonaventura hinted at a potential 2026 release date, depending on the resolution of the strikes.

With updates on the G.I. Joe and Transformers crossover film currently scarce, fans may have to wait longer than expected for the beloved franchises to unite on the big screen. However, Transformers enthusiasts can look forward to the upcoming animated film, Transformers One, featuring Scarlett Johannson, scheduled for a September 13, 2024 release.

For those eager to revisit Snake Eyes and Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, both films are available for streaming on Paramount+.
