Your GI JOE codename is now Captain Obvious.


I hope this doesn't mean I have to forfeit "Cleo".

Maybe they're having Ripcord as team lead so they can off him to show that the enemy is a genuine threat, and promote Hawk, Duke, or Flint to team leader at the end of the movie.

Are you suggesting that every explosion will not be preceded by a seat ejection and parachuting pilot or driver??

That's just crazy talk.

Marlon Wayans as Ripcord is freaking hilarious and nearly as bad as "Dungeons and Dragons". The pansy they want for Cobra Commander is also funny. The whole casting is retarded, even director. The man from AVPR Steven Pasquale couldve played a great Duke.

This movie will SUCK!

*Say what you like about the "Street Fighter" movie, at least the casting was far superior than this piece of crap disgrace of a movie.

Reportedly, the casting of Duke for the live action Joe movie is down to three choices:

Matthew Fox (LOST)
Chris Evans (Fantastic Four)
Channing Tatum

More info and pics of the three at the linky.

IGN has an article up summarizing the casting news so far, as well as some speculation on the movie.  Some of the case looks pretty good, some doesn't to me, but I'm really hoping this will be a "fun" movie like I found Transformers to be.  I'd still rather see someone like Duke or Flint running things though, so I hope the Ripcord thing is a rumor.  More info at the link.

I love how they put the Baroness comic image up next to Sienna Miller... but didn't for Wayans.....
Ripcord

I still don't get this....    Ripcord was featured in a few of the comics but nothing like Stalker, Duke, or Flint.....

What's to get?  They want a black guy in charge.  Just like they want them to be a UN force.  They don't care what's canon, they're making decisions based on global market research.

Or for Scarlett.  Or for Storm Shadow.

Yep.  Seems as though they're doing whatever they can to get away from the traditional image of GI JOE.  Which makes me not want to even see it.

This is getting bad. Duke's best friend, Rex, maybe go bad and become Cobra Commander.  ::)

They look the part... Wayans as RipCord just doesn't.

It sounds like Duke may have been cast in the G.I. Joe movie.  According to this report, its an actor by the name of Channing Tatum.  I don't really know who he is, but do remember the commercials on for the lame dance movie he starred in, "Step Up".  Other than that, not sure who he is, or quite sure of the direction of this movie.  We'll see I guess.

A couple more castings in the Joe movie:  Dennis Quaid as General Hawk and Arnold Vosloo as Zartan.
