Like it or not, it looks like the Hasbro "cinematic universe" is starting to take shape. So far only the next G.I. Joe and Micronauts movies have been dated, but we know that the company also intends to make movies based on other retro toy properties such as ROM (maybe), Visionaries, and M.A.S.K.
It's that last property, M.A.S.K., that is in the news today. M.A.S.K. told the adventures of the underground Mobile Armored Strike Kommand who fight against the V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem) in their transformable vehicles via toys, cartoons, and a comics back in 1985. Well, the M.A.S.K. movie took a step forward today with the announcement of a director for the film.
F. Gary Gray has been reported to be the director attached to the movie.
