The name and release date for the G.I. Joe sequel have both changed over the summer. The new official title (formerly G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes) is now G.I. Joe: Retaliation and the release date has gone from August 10, 2012 to June 29, 2012. Sounds good to me.
One thing that hasn’t changed (yet) is Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock (are we still calling him that?) playing the part of Roadblock. Here is a picture of Johnson as Roadblock:
Here is another side-by-side picture of Johnson as Roadblock and the old action figure’s cardboard data file image.
Johnson looks good as Roadblock but I hope they plan to CGI in the facial hair.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 29, 2012.
