Yo, G.I. Joe/Flint fans:
I just sent this out to Paramount Studios who left Flint out of their new G.I. Joe Movie (2009 theatrical release,) and they better at least use Bill Ratner the voice of Flint for the movie trailers, or I’m boycotting.
Please send Paramount your own version via snail-mail and e-mail, so we can get Flint on board.

Dear Mr. Grey & Mr. Greenstein;
I’m a life-long G.I. Joe Fan; I grew up on the tv series. For me and according to Rhino (Warner Bros.) Home Video the most popular character from the series is “Flint” played by Los Angeles voice-over guy Bill Ratner. From what I’ve read “Flint” is not in the Paramount live-action film coming out next summer, but I hope you use his very recognizable voice on the G.I. Joe trailers. (I’m pretty sure I hear his voice on other Paramount trailers.)
There are hundreds of websites dedicated to “Flint” and G.I. Joe and I’m in touch with literally thousands of Joe fans on Joe chatrooms.
Regarding movie tickets, I vote with my feet & my keyboard on the web, and I vote that you use “Flint” on the trailers for G.I. Joe.
Los Angeles CA"
And/or send emails to these guys:

I only want Flint in the movie if there's a valid story reason to have him in the movie. I don't want him there if it's just to say "here's Flint".

hey welcome to the tank to start with. I'd like to see Flint as well but I'd rather build him up for the next film. You know? I just think there will be so much going on with this one to do him justice.

I know I hadn't been online for a week, did all these hundreds of Flint websites just pop up while I've been gone?

I sympathize with you... Flint is one of my favorite characters, but this would have been a letter to send when they were filming the flick, not now that it's in post-production.
I do think it would be cool to have his voice on the trailer though... good call.
As it is though the producers/higher ups in Paramount probably get so many e-mails regarding this movie they probably just roll their eyes and say: 'ugh, got another one...' before hitting the delete button.

The film already has two 'leaders' for the Joes. Flint would not really have had a speciality beyond this role so maybe that's why he was excluded.
As with Transformers, I think most people had their 'favourites' they'd have liked to have seen in the movie, but the cast was always going to be limited and it was inevitable that some would lose out.

Last time someone posted a company's contact info and told people to call and complain the person being complained to came on the tank and verbally bitchslapped the person who started the thread. Let's hope people are more mature than when calling an alleged scalper.
This sort of thing is usually a recipe for disaster and ends up making normal Joe fans look like d-bags.
