I believe all the rhyming is why Roadblock may have been shelved. Funny thing is, I don't believe there is a fan on this site who would expect Roadblock to be speaking in rhyme anywhere in a live action film!
Roadblock was the HNIC in the comic. A stand up hero. A man who could kick Shaft's ass!
As for Heavy Duty, who is that guy? One of those Joes that came out after '87. Didn't buy him! Dumb character.
Roadblock is as well known as Duke or Snake Eyes. To blatantly circumvent all that and use "Heavy Duty" is inane. Its been covered enough already but it is the same kind of senseless and inexplicable baloney as using a black Ripcord and not use Stalker.
Stalker is as well known as Duke too. How did they come up with ripcord. They could have used the name Blowtorch for all I care!
To answer your final comment about why people are complaining about the film before seeing it can be sumed up with one word.
I think people are scared as to what they will see when this show starts.
There have been so much creative wrangling from what the original was. It distorts what was Joe into something Lorenzo Di Bonaventura believes is the modern world view of some kind of UN/NATO special forces squad.
Too contrived for me. I will see it but I too am scared.
Please don't hold my fear of what they have done to the Joe universe against me.
In my opinion, I don't think anything they have done will be an improvement over what was originally set.

I strongly disagree with all of you calling this man a "tool". Tools are useful. This man is not.

Think they are missing the letter "s' for "stool" as in a little shit that he is.
