Marlon Wayans Tweets Why He Isn't in G.I. JOE 2

Funny man Marlon Wayans tweets what exactly happened to his character Ripcord in the the "G.I. Joe" sequel film.

I'll take his word for it! Looks like Wayans is not at all distraught by his disappearance from the series.

Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock
Bruce Willis as General Joseph Colton
Channing Tatum as Duke
Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye
Ray Park as Snake Eyes
RZA as Blind Master
Arnold Vosloo as Zartan
Lee Byung-hun as Storm Shadow

they should have the whole original cast except snake eyes killed at the begging of the movie

I'm looking forward to this film and I'm glad they're bringing in a new cast and characters, as the first film and most of it's portrayals left a lot to be desired.

But, because this series is continuing as a sequel instead of a reboot, that means the characters of Duke, Hawk, Scarlett, Heavy Duty, Destro and The Baroness won't/can't be used in any future films.

Those are key G.I. Joe characters and it's disappointing we won't see better portrayals of them in this series.

I'm just glad Snake Eyes is back without the stupid mouth mask.
HulkbusterNYC - 2/6/2012, 10:24 PM
Good. He sucks anyway.
CPBuff22 - 2/6/2012, 10:27 PM
The real reason Ripcord doesn't return is because of Government overspending. They had to cut the budget some how in order to pay off those Mech Suits from the first movie.

Funny stuff. Great news, as well.
TheRationalOne - 2/6/2012, 10:34 PM
Marlon Wayans makes me miss movies with Damon Wayans.
misner89 - 2/6/2012, 10:37 PM
thats a shame
Destroyer14 - 2/6/2012, 10:39 PM
Yeah, who the heck is playing Cobra Commander? Maybe they'll keep it secret until the film releases.
TheRationalOne - 2/6/2012, 10:40 PM
Duke is in this one, by the way. Its just not known whether he'll be killed off at the beginning, or taken captive. With the amount of talk Channing Tatum has been doing about GI Joe lately, I would think he just gets captured and pops back up toward the end. Otherwise, he's promoting the movie just so people can watch him die in the first 20 minutes. No reason Destro, Hawk, Heavy Duty and Scarlett couldn't pop back up sometime in the franchise as well. Joe has a LOT of characters. You cant fit them all in every movie. Its like Xmen. Somebody will always bitch about a character getting left out, when its dumb to assume they can fit them all in the first place.
Cheesehead - 2/6/2012, 10:40 PM
Good cause you may have been the worst par-.... Actually Cobra Commander was the worst part....
TheRationalOne - 2/6/2012, 10:42 PM
@Scorpion, have you seen the first trailer that came out for this one? Not the superbowl spot. That Jay Z line Rock says is dumb. But the other one looked pretty friggin cool. WAY better than the other. I'm game.
TheRationalOne - 2/6/2012, 10:42 PM
The other movie I mean.
masterhater - 2/6/2012, 11:05 PM
He ruined that movie!
PreparationH - 2/6/2012, 11:10 PM
Ya he can get pretty corny but I did like him in Requiem for a dream & scary movie
DaneE5R - 2/6/2012, 11:18 PM
Shame. He was the best part of the first one and is easily the most talented of the Wayans'.
thewolfx - 2/6/2012, 11:26 PM
anybody who thinks hes the least funniest wayans is a pure idiot

Yasn7 - 2/6/2012, 11:28 PM
@prepH He was great in Requiem and the FIRST scary movie was great. Also dont be a menace to south central while drinkin.... was hilarious back in the day.
acidbath - 2/6/2012, 11:39 PM
Do you all even remember the cartoon. This movie should be super cheese mixed with an 80s psa. It should not be what anyone would call good anyways. Never read the comic but I know it started with a scrapped marvel story so I can't imagine it being very good either.
Aelifax - 2/6/2012, 11:44 PM
He was suppose to be Robin right?
TheRationalOne - 2/6/2012, 11:45 PM
@thewolfx - sure, he's not the least. That would be Shawn. But he isn't nearly as funny as Damon. For that matter, he isn't nearly as funny as Damon's son is either. That kid had me rolling on Conan.

I think this one looks like a cool action flick. It might not get my box office money cuz its got stiff competition this year, but I'll definitely get the blu-ray.
gabenorris - 2/6/2012, 11:59 PM
Sad truth 3 Waynes Brothers in an orgy, cant make one good actor. Sad Truth.
DaneE5R - 2/7/2012, 12:19 AM
Watch Requiem for a Dream, and tell me that Marlon Wayans can't act. Please.
MasterApoc81 - 2/7/2012, 12:23 AM
the baronness brother is the cobra commander ......obviously lol.......joseph gorden lovett dude
DarthTesla - 2/7/2012, 12:28 AM
Honestly, is anyone expecting Iron Man, or The Dark Knight here? If you are then you are just confused.

I liked the 1st GI Joe movie. I realize it was retarded and the supersuits were just dumb, but I like watching movies like this some times.

The new one is gonna be just as ridiculous as the first one was and everyone here is still going to watch it regardless.
Ceejay - 2/7/2012, 12:41 AM
@DaneE5R - You're spot on, his performance in Requiem for a Dream was pretty damn solid, I was questioning myself all through the movie if it was actually him or not, that's how impressive it was!

This G.I Joe franchise has shot itself in the foot with the drastic continuity severances. This movie feels practically like a reboot already!
NeoBaggins - 2/7/2012, 2:38 AM
He got shot in the face and his last words were "ouch bitch!". That's not even funny.
nikgrid - 2/7/2012, 3:12 AM
The movie will not suffer for his loss.
13echo - 2/7/2012, 6:01 AM
I thought Ripcord died because he SUCKED to death! Oh well......
Minghagz - 2/7/2012, 6:23 AM
Honestly, as bad as Marlon Wayans is... I think I'd rather have this guy back in G.I. Joe 2 over Channing Tatum.
Here's to hoping that Duke dies. Channing Tatum is a bitch.
Digitaria51 - 2/7/2012, 6:41 AM
Hey do you guys remember when Marlon Wayans was relevant? (*crickets chirping*)
JackBauer - 2/7/2012, 7:26 AM
Good ridance. He was a piss poor Ripcord. He should have read this story to understand the character:

hoodedjester - 2/7/2012, 7:32 AM
good. Bad actor and he isn't even funny.

I'm hoping this next one is better than the first but I don't have high hopes.
kenmac718 - 2/7/2012, 7:36 AM
Damn, why people dogging this man out? I thought the first movie was fine and I felt like he did good. To me the weak link was the actor portraying Cobra Commander. JGL is a good actor just not the right one for this role. Also most people are overlooking one of the biggest problems, the replacing of major charactors from GI Joe stories with secondary ones. I'm a fan of Dwayne Johnson, but I would have like to see at least most of the first movie's cast back as well.
