Why The Cast of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra Isn't in G.I. Joe Retaliation

Why aren't the Joe's returning? I may have found the answer.

So I was watching G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra last night and after the Paris scene General Hawk says that all the Joe's from the incident can be released by the French Embassy on one condition, they are out of G.I. Joe. The Joe's he's addressing are Heavy Duty, Scarlett, Ripcord, and Breaker; Duke was captured by Cobra and Snake Eyes managed to sneak away. General Hawk says that they need to go back to The Pit before they're out but that they could take a "northern route" to go get Cobra. He also says to Joe's back at The Pit that his orders go agains all protocol. Duke and Snake Eyes return but not the rest of them. Could it be that the French Embassy wanted those Joe's gone but missed Duke and Snake Eyes? And that General Hawk was fired for going against protocol? It may not be the explanation in Retaliation but I do think it's a pretty good possibility. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Nope. At the end of the movie they are all still together as a team in the pit on their way on a new mission. Change as nothing to do with storyline just a change in direction as far as cast goes.

Yeah they are walking away at the end, but since they never explained why they're just fine and dandy after they were supposed to be out they could pick up the plot hole this way.

Well if you look at the beginning if the new trailer all of the Joes besides Duke and Road Block and that other girl were killed. That may explain that
AlexRival - 12/16/2011, 12:37 PM
Yeah but you don't directly see the characters killed off.

I think a lot of the actors were just smart enough not to return.

will Cobra Commander return?

Umm because there dead I thought President Zartan made that pretty clear in the trailer, and yes they were still Joes, as the attack was on on the Joes so your theory kinda fails. And I seriously hope tatums dead

they didnt say all of them were not allowed to be joes,they said they were never allowed to come back,meaning never allowed to come back to france

Jessepostal is right they were told they could never return to France. So... good effort. I just think they killed off the cast from the first movie as a way to distance themselves from Rise of Cobra but hey what do I know mothaf*cka!

Its just like an episode of the cartoon this "episode" simply focuses on Flint Lady jaye and roadblock. Plus snake and jinx. So im goin aling for the ride. They should introduce the M.A.S.S. device!

I think it's so we can more easily forget that sh!t movie ROC. Plus, those actors sucked.

The best part of the first movie was Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. And even that was disappointing....

No Marlon Wayans no Gi Joe Movie screw this POS Marlon Wayans needs to come back hes a genius!
Drizzy0503 - 12/19/2011, 1:54 PM
the cast left cuz the first gijoe was shot and it didnt deserve a sequel. easy explanation
ellispart3 - 12/21/2011, 12:44 PM
from what it looks like, they are going to be killed off to make way for a new team. marlon wayans apparently spoke about Ripcord being offed in between movies and then having the funeral in gi joe 2.
