"A Real American Hero"
Join Date: Jul 2007
During the 2008 SDCC there was a Q&A for the movie and Resolute, and seeings how so many of these questions keep popping here on the boards I wanted to put this back up for all to see.
Q: Why have Heavy Duty instead of Roadblock?
A: They just picked him because that felt right.
Q: Any concern that G.I. Joe is now a national force, instead of an American force?
A: There is a mix of the cast, to have a combination of the chemistry between the characters. They wanted to make it as accurate as it would be today, with characters regardless of their nationality.
Q: Why the relationships? Why not the relationship between Snake Eyes and Scarlett?
A: There will be a relationship there, but it's hard to have Snake Eyes react because he doesn't talk. Snake Eyes will be blocking Roadblock's efforts to swoon Scarlett. There will be lots of action, so the romances will not take the center stage.
Q: Will there be a balance between the animated/live-action merchandise?
A: Next spring, there will be more animated style designs, but by summer, the live-action will take the center stage. By 2010, they will thrive to find a balance between the two. Tomorrow, there will be more G.I. Joe toys shown at the booth.
Q: Will the movie toys be like the 25th anniversary line?
A: that will be the format, because fans have shown their support. Safe to say that there are similar styles, but they will add in as much kid-oriented stuff as they can. Bright colors may be brought in on a limited basis.
Q: How did Warren Ellis get involved in the series? He's not an obvious choice.
A: There's no cursing or blood spurting scenes, but the action is very Ellis.
Q: Why the release date change?
A: Because of Transformers 2...they want to have them 6 weeks apart.
Q: Will Cobra Commander be in the move?
A: Yes, he will be.
Q: Will the show be watered down if they get picked up by a network?
A: No, they would keep it and it would be a later show.
Q: New comic book license?
A: IDW is the new comic partner. Trying to establish a new fan base. They will be creating a new jumping on point for the franchise for new fans brought in from the movie's release.
Q: The fight sequences are action-packed and long, how was the fight coordinated? How much did they have to train?
A: Ari Rindell was the stunt coordinator (he worked on The Matrix) but both men were in top form training-wise.
Q: What sort of vehicles will we see in both Resolute and the movie?
A: There will be lots of vehicles in both, although they don't want to reveal them yet. What about the USS Flagg? What about it?

Just a little correction but it's Ripcord that Snake-Eyes will be "cock blocking" not Roadblock.

Haha, they asked about the flagg?
Come on now. A new flagg will never see the light of day.

Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.
