Cool!
Super Beast:
She basically just restated all the things said at Toy fair. hahaha. Literally.

And Chu's quote about Destro is: "You may see a glimpse of him."

So don't get your hopes up people! hahaha. He is likely the other guy in the tube like we all had said.
crock master:
yeah , but since he is gona be all CGI, i am sure thats why we havnt heard or seen anything about him. it looks like chu wants to pack as much as he can into this film.
i figure ,with all this no desto talk and all these interviews, it will just be a suprise
IIIzoeIII:
hmmm so this cobra commander isn't even rex lewis duke's brother..
I sure as hell haven't heard that one yet.Who is he then?
is he Destro?? that would be so awesome!! NOT! >:(

Who said that? "so this cobra commander isn't even rex lewis duke's brother.." HUH? I love a terrible rumor.

There has been very lil' info released regarding the plot, tone, characters, etc. All anyone knows right now is that Chu hasn't completely abandoned the efforts of ROC and that Retaliation is indeed a sequel. Also, we know that certain actors will be reprising their roles from ROC, alon with the addition of new characters being portrayed by new actors to the franchise.

I think the poster meant to write rex lewis isn't Anna's (the Baroness) brother. But this info has already been talked about. Nothing new. Except for the cute girl doing the reporting. That was worth it.

I gotcha. It's just that I can't help but question where these rumors start. Especially for a movie where very lil' has been revealed. And before anyone can assume anything about all the characters of ROC, no one knows how those characters will be handled in Retaliation. I mean we already know that the characters aren't returning, but it hasn't been revealed how Chu will go about that. All we know is that they won't be present in the sequel.

Scroll down the main page. Or at my Thread history. I've posted plenty of videos from plenty of sites, where Chu talks about things, as does the cast. Chu in one of the interviews says that CC is not the same guy.
skinny:
nothing new or confirmed here (vid was uploaded on the 17th) except that Chu posted the link to the interview, HIS interview. However after seeing Cobra Commander's re-design, I am curious to see what he does with Destro.
thairestauranteur:
They forget to mention that Justin Beiber will be doing the soundtrack music to this movie! Its GREAT!!!!

thanks super
the girl says it in the video
she says that the "new" cobra isn't the same character not acter CHARACTER..meaning rex is NOT coming back in this movie,making the new commander a different character underneath the mask
lets pay attention people they are giving us more hints in every piece of media we get.
Gun-Haver:
It's hard to believe this got front paged. This most certainly isn't a confirmation of any sort or new information, this is just some dummy reading cue cards that summarize the interview we've all seen a bazillion times already.
Raw Dog:
My guess is Destro will make an appearance at the end of the movie, maybe after the credits, which will serve as the lead into the third installment, but that is just my guess. I don't have any hard evidence to support my claim. I do think that the movie will be awesome and including Destro makes me happy.
teemu8:
Rise a crap Destro was horrible...hopefully Destro looks like Destro in this one
Fox:
This isn't news.

This is just some bimbo reading old news.
bluesparrow:
Why would Storm Shadow be breaking Cobra Commander out of deep freeze if it's not the same character? I think people are misinterpreting Chu's "not the same Cobra Commander", I think he just means it won't look or act like the ROC version at all, not that it's a totally new character.

No, it is a totally new character.

The news stories she's referring to were interviews done by Mike Ryan at Moviefone. He followed up with an interview of Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, who specifically stated that this Cobra Commander is a totally different character than the last one.

Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Producer, Confirms The Cobra Commander In New Sequel Is 'Different Guy'

Quote:

Ryan: I know Joseph Gordon-Levitt is not in this movie. But is the Cobra Commander in this movie the same character we saw in the first movie?

Di Bonaventrura : No.

Ryan: So it's a different guy?

Di Bonaventura: Different guy.

Ryan: So someone else took over?

Di Bonaventura: Someone else took over, yes.
That makes it pretty clear and specific. The hostess is essentially regurgitating news that came out of Toy Fair a couple of weeks ago...

what is going to get front paged next? Channing Tatum cast as Duke in ROC?

Fred:
I have a suspicion the new Cobra Commander in this film is Destro...
crock master:
this isnt even confirmed. she says there is a new villian(which i think is firefly)then says
destro may make an apperance, we weill have to see. but what we do know is channing tatum is returning

if you have to wait and see, then you obviously dont know and are waiting to find out.

for some reason i am thinking fire fly.im not sure why, maybe because firefly is going to be the new villian in the movie?

I doubt it. James McCullen is Destro, and turning him into CC would be as bad as any of the worst ideas from ROC. CC has far more leeway in developing the character because of the inherent "mystery" of the character, and lends itself to jettisoning an idea like the Doctor in ROC for a new idea if the previous one did not work, as long as that idea isn't shoe-horning another established character into the role.

so far everyone involved seems to have been making smarter decisions than that.

Ah I hadn't seen that... how are they going to explain this? It doesn't make any sense. Why would Zartan and Storm Shadow work for a new Cobra Commander?
mav55mdash:
This is not news, we have known this for weeks, that he will be in it
Deftones1982:
Cool, can't be worse then the ROC one.
whitefox360:
Not that i disagree with all these changes, because the movie stands to be much better for them, i just hope theres not 20 minutes of painful flashback exposition scattered throughout the movie to show us why what we think we saw didnt happen in the ways we think we saw other people see it. Did...Then.

Behind the curtain.
neapolitan joe:
Oh, great.
Shin Densetsu:
Hopefully the mask won't look as stupid as it did last time. He looked like a mummy with a playdoh mask.
dbritt:
Perhaps, as someone mentioned somewhere on here, SS and Zartan are NOT serving a new Cobra Commander. The CC in this movie was behind the scenes the whole time. It would be very easy to explain that Rex simply made a power play, declared himself commander, and then was captured. Nothing in ROC explicitly ties SS and Zartan to Rex. They're all just part of the same plot, and then at the end Rex says to call him the "Commander". Explain it away as a coup that failed.

That would fix a lot of FUBAR story from the last film, one can only hope they would be that smart.
dbritt:
And while they're at it, retcon Anna Lewis out as well. She was a pawn brought in by Rex and brainwashed or whatever, not even the real Baroness; OR the real Baroness, sister to Baron DeCobray, shows up to reek some vicious vengeance. ROC could be a very distant bad dream by the time GI Joe 3 is out.

Maybe he'll also give us a proper Baroness.
crock master:
maybe its Zanzibar
SUPERVERITECH:
Wow! She made a video about new that was posted on Hisstank like a week ago. There is nothing new here.

Zartans thing in this film is that he is wondering if they love him for being Zartan!
Super Beast:
Well, Jaye says "What if the President, isn't actually the president" and there is a shot of two presidents in one room. I imagine Vosloo will make an appearance.

Also..Palicki has some nasty eye mannerisms...
Kitchen Viper:
I'm glad the real President isn't dead. ROC seemed to imply he was killed.

So the Retaliation CC was behind the scenes the whole time? Which would mean he was behind McCullen and M.A.R.S., who is what Zartan and Storm Shadow worked for.

So this mysterious CC was responsible for M.A.R.S. and pushed The Doctor to take over, and then the Doctor adopted this mysterious CC's Cobra emblem and name?

Remember, it was Rex that changed M.A.R.S. to Cobra at the end of RoC.


I'm leaning towards the new CC being Destro.




They should have just kept the original ending of RoC, which had CC escaping. That just made so much more sense.

Destro being the Commander is the stupidest thing anyone has suggested about this movie.

If Chu is trying so hard to please the fans, and corrected flaws about CC...Why in the HELL would he piss us all off by making Destro, CC?

Destro is likely just the other dude suspended in a tube. Maybe when he says "Different guy" he is implying that his personality is changed.

Otherwise, the idea that there was a phantom CC pulling the strings behind MARS is also flawed..It seemed odd that Destro was doing what he was doing (World Domination..an Arms dealer...WHAT!?!!?) even though Rex could have been told to take over, the operation, after Destro's plans blew up in his face.

But he calls himself the Commander. There are Three ice pods in that Prison it shows SS in..

I have no idea what is going on with this plot..or how they are building off the first..it's maddening.

But I found it odd, that Destro ordered Zartan in the oval office, while he tried to take over the world by nuking everything..seems unnecessary...Unless there was someone else running the show, with bigger plans in mind.

Edit: Not a personal attack Troy!

It is even simpler than that. all they have to do is create a great factory for the new CC and introduce him strongly and you don't even have to mention Red at all.
