Chris Hemsworth Transformers GI Joe Crossover Movie

Marvel star Chris Hemsworth is currently in discussions to lead the cast of the upcoming crossover film featuring the Transformers and G.I. Joe franchises, as reported by Deadline.

The Transformers and G.I. Joe project, under development at Paramount Pictures, is currently untitled but promises to blend two of the most iconic franchises from the 1980s. Hemsworth’s involvement would mark a continued collaboration with Paramount, following his lead role in the highly- anticipated Transformers One, which is currently set to hit theaters in September 2024.

Transformers One has already demonstrated promise, being one of the highest-tested titles in Paramount Animation’s history. The crossover film will see Hemsworth expand his footprint in the cinematic universe that Paramount is eager to develop.

What to expect from the Transformers and G.I. Joe crossover movie

Paramount’s intent to intertwine the Transformers and G.I. Joe worlds was hinted at in the post-credits scene of 2023’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, which successfully rejuvenated the franchise with a global box office haul of $439 million. The crossover potential was initially teased in Marvel Comics during the 1980s when G.I. Joe and Transformers characters first shared adventures.

The groundwork for the crossover was laid in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts with a post-credits scene featuring Noah (played by Anthony Ramos), who, after saving Earth with the Autobots and Maximals, returns to New York. Noah’s quest for a new job leads him to an interview with Agent Burke (Michael Kelly), a character revealed to be associated with G.I. Joe rather than the previously expected Sector 7.

With Chris Hemsworth at the helm, the Transformers and G.I. Joe crossover is poised to be a major cinematic event. As demonstrated at its CinemaCon presentation, Paramount Pictures is determined to leverage its extensive portfolio of IP — despite ongoing speculation about potential mergers with major entities like Skydance or Sony/Apollo.
