New G. I. JOE: RETALIATION Poster Hits The Web

Well technically, it isn't necessarily new. It is a previously seen poster with a few added features, such as Channing Tatum as Duke and a '3D' designation added to the title. See the poster for the Jon Chu-directed sequel after the jump.

Wow, same design as all the others. Creative

Was Channing Tatum in the last version of this poster? I heard that part of the reason the studio pushed back the movie's release (aside from the unnecessary 3D conversion) was to write a dead Duke back into the story.

No he wasn't in the previous foreign version. That is one of the differences in this one.

@santo, I don't think he was, I heard the same thing. Tatums a big name draw and there gonna market that.

Lets hope the movie is better then the poster, lol. I loved the first one, except for a few scenes, I thought it was good. I really loved Sienna Miller as The Baroness and Rachel Nichols as Scarlett. The two of them plus Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes were the best parts of the movie.

I cant wait for the second movie, I hope it doesnt disappoint. Wish it had Destro, Baroness, and Scarlett. Cobra Commander looks awesome



And I just bought this shirt to get ready for the movie, lol.

Here's the original version of this poster FYI (albeit in Portuguese):

This shit ain't over yet? Hurry up so I don't have to hear about this any more.

i guessing that 'duke' was offed in the initial take of this film. but after tatum blew up from 21 jump street, those re-writes & re-shoots resurrected him & somehow found a way to keep him alive.

not that im complaining at all, i'd just have been curious to see how it all unfolded behind the scenes.

Why did they move Jinx to the cobra side of things....
SHe always was a GI-Joe. Never went to Cobra or back and forth like Snake Eyes...

I wonder if this is a plot giveaway? she joins cobra...

I can't believe they halted a movie production for one actor. Channing Tatum was one of the reasons the first movie was bad.

Bruce Willis and The Rock are big enough box office draws. Filming more scenes of Channing Tatum is completely unnecessary.

At mgeoff88 truer words have never been spoken.

Is The Punisher part of this Universe to?

I really hope Cobra Commander is as badass as he looks. Not a big fan of the whiny bitch he was in the cartoon. Especially without Destro or Zartan around. Violently killing Tatum, even if he has to come back somehow, would be a good start. Also, I wish Ray Stevenson was playing Zartan instead of Firefly.

@ vontstallin Was wondering about that (Jinx and Cobra). Interesting move, I think. As long as Snake Eyes gets enough screen time. Would be nice if we haven't seen all his big moments already.

dont know why everyone saying this is second movie cause the one before doesnt matter that was the prequel, this is the reall movie.
HulkSmash87 - 12/21/2012, 4:13 AM
ummm kemuael...that makes no sense...if the first was the prequel then wouldn't the new one be the second anyways??

Punisher is in the Marvel Universe? :P

Think the poster be better just showing the Cobra part!

Damn, be great to see REAL Cobra this time and not that joke of a Cobra Commander from movie one.

Oh yeah awesome Storm Shadow's back, knew he would be. Him and Snake Eyes could be the only ones in the movie and I'd watch it, damn love them two characters!

As I understand it, one of the things test audiences rated the highest was Duke and Roadblock's friendship. I've actually grown to like Channing Tatum these days. He was great in 21 Jump Street and (I cant believe I'm going to say this) in The Vow. He reminds me of how Marky Mark was when he first started acting.
CharlesLord - 12/21/2012, 8:31 AM
they just HAD to put for tatum in this thing huh? havent they learned sometimes test audiences are idiots?
DennisNedry - 12/21/2012, 9:15 AM
Cobra Commander looks solid.
