WWE's John Cena To Be In M.A.S.K. Movie?!?

by Jay Cochran
July 02, 2020
WWE's John Cena seems to be trying to tell us something with his latest post on Instagram.



Cena is no stranger to Hasbro based movies has he appeared in the last Transformers live-action film. Back in February it was announced that Paramount and Hasbro had hired writer Chris Bremner to develop the screenplay for M.A.S.K, the action-adventure project based on the 1980s toy line. It was also said that attached to direct the project was F. Gary Gray, who helmed The Fate of the Furious and Men in Black International. Gray would also be producing via his Fenix Studios banner along with Hasbro’s production arm, Allspark Pictures.

As I have said many times, the best chance for seeing Hasbro relaunch the M.A.S.K. toyline which would likely include a new 6" line of action figures would be for a movie to happen. We won't count our chickens before they are hatched, but it seems like things are moving forward if Cena is on board.

Part of me would really like to see 6" (marvel legends/ SW Black Series/ Gi Joe Classified) Hasbro style figures just as figures to display with removable helmets (or better yet interchangeable heads) of the classic styled characters, but part of me thinks properties like these where vehicles play such an integral part of the story/lore the vehicles kind of need to be made as well and I dont see that happening with 6"figures. If I could choose or give some input to Hasbro (if youre reading this) give us 2 lines of figures.1)a collectors line of 6" figures (just the characters, maybe if the property does well a couple of the smaller vehicles like the bikes or something like that) and make these in the Classic Cartoon Designs (maybe have a couple of the movie characters in 6" form but mainly focus on the classic designs)2) a more kid friendly 3 3/4" figures with vehicles (these based on the movie designs)

Both good ideas. I am with you!

This is actually very cool news, I really hope this comes to fruition , because most importantly as many of you are saying it would be great to see a new line of M.A.S.K. toys

but I'm in for a movie absolutely

Just don't mess the movie up!!! That is all I'm saying!

Cena was pretty good in Bumblebee. If he's in M.A.S.K. then fine.

You are probably right but wouldnt it be better to have good MASK toys than just any old MASK toys?

It will definitely need to be in a smaller scale. Can you imagine how big the vehicles would have to be if it were a 6 line?

I couldn't care less about that goon being involved or about the movie for that matter, see some new toys would be nice, IDK if I would be interested in just another 6" line since we might not see many vehicles (the main element in M.A.S.K.) in that scale, but is all too early, so let's wait and see what happens.

This was not expected...

Nice!

Only problem is toylines based on crap movies don't last long . . . and is a short lived toyline really worth another Bay-Turtles or Seth Rogen's Green Hornet being added to the pop-culture zeigeist?

That's true but I don't see MASK toys returning any other way.
