The reason is -Mister Channing Tatum-:
1) In Retaliation Duke died at the beginning of the movie so Tatum had a short part;
2) Tatum is now a star. World's sexiest man of 2012.
Paramount wanted to wait the success (or not) of
a) The Vow,
b) 21 Jump Street (a sequel in 2014!),
c) Magic Mike.
March 29 2013 Retaliation'll be around the world with Tatum The international sex symbol and movie star with a main part till the end of the movie.
It is marketing.
Rise of Cobra was not an epic movie, just a little success and Paramount does not want to risk.
But Di Bonaventura, please, do no tell us lies again as You did with Mister "Mummy-Robocop-StarshipTroopers" Sommers.
My only hope is Chu.
