After its impressive debut at the worldwide box office, it didn't really surprise anyone when Paramount gave a third instalment of G.I. Joe the green light. Talking to IGN Movies, G.I. Joe: Retaliation writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick reportedly told the site that they are "actively in the process of breaking the story for the third film" despite not having officially been signed up to return...that we've heard of. When asked what they're planning on bringing to the follow-up, they stressed that Dwayne Johnson's 'Roadblock' is a must, but also let slip the fact that both Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes are "also likely to return". Additionally, the duo would like to give the Baroness another chance (the villainess was played by Sienna Miller in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra). As for the financial performance of Retaliation, they finished by telling the site: "It was made for $50 million less and is projected to make $100 more, so I’d call that a success." Expect more details on part three very soon and sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

Sienna Miller is a sexy chick,not her fault that writers of first movie didn't allow Baroness to live up to full potential.
Forget the lovey dovey crap & make her the ice queen Cobra dominatrix she is.
bluedude - 4/24/2013, 4:17 PM

MJPETTY7 - 4/24/2013, 4:17 PM

Tony93 - 4/24/2013, 4:19 PM
WHAT SUCCESS?!?!?!?
nowtheresaBATman - 4/24/2013, 4:19 PM
I thought she got carried away by ants the last time she went on a picnic w/ Fluke?
Wildaniel - 4/24/2013, 4:20 PM
With Duke dead, I guess no one really cares about Baroness. I do, I hope they bring her back!
ahhmynuts - 4/24/2013, 4:22 PM
i want rachel nichols back! tits and all!
InfiniteMonkey - 4/24/2013, 4:22 PM
Now that Channing Tatum is gone, this should be quite a transition because they have more erm...talented writers.

Just focus on the script. Technology is not the problem, the script is. Just focus on that. And more femme Joe's and villains.

If they bring Baroness back, they need resurrect Duke. Cobra founds and took Dukes body in Retaliation.
nowtheresaBATman - 4/24/2013, 4:37 PM
^the casting of Channing Tatum was blasphemous
LAXtremest - 4/24/2013, 4:39 PM
Schmoesknow broke this a week or two back.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 4/24/2013, 4:41 PM
Retaliation was a step up from Rise of Cobra, but it was not a "success"
JayJayCAW - 4/24/2013, 4:46 PM
bring back Duke, he was actually likeable in this one, hell if he Tatum acted the same way in the first movie it might have done better (highly doubt it, but who knows)
repulse93 - 4/24/2013, 4:51 PM
I say bring her back... then let her learn about Duke's death. Let it seem like she's really gone to the dark side this time.

Then at the climax, she backstabs her brother and Destro to avenge her beloved's death.

This allows the film to give us the badass Baroness we wanted WITHOUT destroying her character from Rise of Cobra (which I thought was good).

Recast Duke! Chris Evens would do nicely!
SamWinchester - 4/24/2013, 4:54 PM
They should bring Ripcord and Scarlet back then too.
Cosmic1 - 4/24/2013, 4:55 PM
Bring back destro too can't have baroness withou destro.
CherryBomb - 4/24/2013, 4:59 PM
The writing for the Baroness was TERRIBLE.
But Sienna Miller was amazing. So bad-ass and looked so sexy.

Bring her back!!!!!

<3
beane2099 - 4/24/2013, 4:59 PM
@ Gusto I agree. 21Jump Street raised him up in my eyes.

I actually liked Retaliation and I actually hope they bring back Duke. They can feel free to recast Baroness though.
CherryBomb - 4/24/2013, 4:59 PM

it's also a shame Cover Girl was killed off :( would've loved to see her as one of the main G.I.'s in the next film.

UltimateWarrior - 4/24/2013, 5:13 PM
I really like the first one, and enjoyed the second even more, and I'll go watch a 3rd. I was hoping the reshoots and delays were to change it so Duke didn't die.They could bring back Duke by saying he wasn't killed, but taken by Cobra soldiers, and the dead body was a decoy. Have him be brainwashed and then saved in the end of 3. That would make bringing the Baroness make more sense. Also I wanna see Destro back, I was unhappy he didn't come back, even if the got a different actor.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 4/24/2013, 5:48 PM
hrrmm sounds good .only if they write a scene where she breaks into my bedroom demanding me to have my way with her. After our intense love scene she recruits me as one of Cobras top Mercenaries.
nowtheresaBATman - 4/24/2013, 6:07 PM
@EastcoastAvenger Have you ever seen the trailer for Modern Warfare 3 w/ Sam Worthington? That's Duke right there.
CapFan79 - 4/24/2013, 6:20 PM
Retaliation could have been much better with better editing (i.e. less stuff cut) a better actor for Flint and no Rza. Overall was a Joe movie though.

I'd welcome a 3rd film with a better Destro, Baroness and maybe Gung Ho, Shipwreck and Quick Kick.
tkiv18 - 4/24/2013, 6:29 PM
They want to bring her back because they *spoiler* killed off all the other iconic Cobra villians apart from CC.
kemuael - 4/24/2013, 6:56 PM
Rachel Nichols please.........
exe - 4/24/2013, 7:17 PM
Why? Rachel Nichols is much hotter than the Baroness.
mgeoff88 - 4/24/2013, 7:21 PM
I think Sienna Miller is sexy, but I thought she was alright as Baroness, which I blame on the terrible writing.

If they make her full-on badass like she is supposed to be, Sienna Miller has the potential to be great.



@IIIAdamantiumIII If you're an amazing enough lover, you get could get her to join the G.I. Joes instead. ;)

That's what I would do. After being the most amazing lover she has ever had, I would get her to turn.

@sameoldthing Lol! Baroness is a dominatrix? I don't remember that in any of the G.I. Joe cartoons. ;P
IIIAdamantiumIII - 4/24/2013, 7:26 PM
LOL!!
Mahoney - 4/24/2013, 7:31 PM
@DarthJericho I agree. The reshoots were supposed to keep Duke alive. He's too big a character in Joe to leave him dead. I hope they find a way to bring him back.
RPD - 4/24/2013, 7:33 PM
Baroness was one of two good things about the first movie. The other was Snake Eyes...
Stumblin - 4/24/2013, 7:45 PM
There was nothing good about either GI Joe movies, literally nothing.
UltimateWarrior - 4/24/2013, 8:21 PM
Mahoney: Well I posted my idea of how to bring him back. I know there's a lot of hate for Channing Tatum among CBM followers, but I think he's grown as an actor, and has progressed in skill. He's not the best actor ever, but I enjoyed him as Duke.
mgeoff88 - 4/25/2013, 5:35 AM
@bropous So I assume you're one of the few people that actually enjoyed the first G.I. Joe movie. ;)
SuperSomething616 - 4/25/2013, 6:05 AM
And I know some may disagree with me but bring back Duke....we never actually saw his body...only his dog tags!!!

If Storm Shadow was brought back (as he was supposed to have died in Rise of Cobra) Duke can come back...

Just say he never died and was captured....
dnodwo - 4/25/2013, 6:15 AM
i want to see fumbles
lanternstorm - 4/25/2013, 6:33 AM
Personally, I thought Retaliation was shit... the only saving grace for that movie was that they followed the comics and early 90's cartoon by turning Storm Shadow good in the same way. Roadblock shouldn't have been in charge after Duke was killed, that was suppose to be Flint's role. And Bruce Willis stayed true to all of his recent films by once again becoming a side kick, The guy was even the side kick in the latest installment of a film franchise he made popular (Die Hard) for christ's sake... All they did in G.I. Joe, was make up for a horrible storyline by throwing in explosions and putting The Rock and Bruce Willis in there. That's the only reason people like the movie period... "Anything that shows the Rock flexing his muscles is automatically guaranteed to hit #1 at the box office, and anything that has Bruce Willis blowing shit up is automatically guaranteed #1 at the box office so hey why don't we throw both of them into the same movie to make up for our shitty ass script, no one will even notice that the movie sucks... HAHAHA stupid movie goers!"
