Joseph Gordon Levitt and Sienna Miller have said outright they won't be back.

Yeah, I did read that at some point... I'm kind of let down by that.  They both did a pretty good job, I thought.  Especially JGL.

Sounds like Flint and the Blind Master are in the sequel, played by DJ Cotrona and RZA respectively.

That gives Flint and Blind Master a little latin and urban flava, respectively.  Interesting...

I'm more than happy to have Flint in the film.  I don't think I know this guy playing him, and haven't looked him up yet.

Edit -> I just looked up Cotrona.  He was in "Dear John" with Tatum but he was also in "Windfall" and "Skin" with Olivia Wilde before anyone knew who she was.

RZA should be interesting, I don't know if he's acted before other than maybe a cameo in something.  It's interesting that they went with the Blind Master but not the Soft Master.  Wonder if we'll get Billy also?  Or some variant of Billy anyway.

I'm also loving that The Rock is in the film.  I'm a big fan of his and no matter what character he's playing, I think it'll be cool.  Roadblock is a good character, but Gung Ho would have been good too.

I'm also happy with Jinx, but now that they've included Flint, of course I want to see Lady Jaye.

Very happy we're getting Lady Jaye.  Not sure how happy I am about the choice of actress, but they could have done worse.

Sounds like Sienna Miller might be coming back for GI JOE 2 after all?  Would be nice in my opinion... she was pertty much the highlight of the first movie for me.

Since this film is slated to release sometime in the summer next year can we expect to see a new GI Joe toy line releasing alongside of the movie's release? and will that mean the 30th anniversary series will be short lived?

Yeah, Hasbro's already been talking about the 30th not being that long.  I don't think we've heard any more concrete info on the film toys but they'll have to have stuff out for Toy Fair if not leaked before that.

I just hope they don't go overboard on this one like they did last time.  The good news, though, is that it sounds like Jon Chu is staying a little more classic in his character designs.  The snaps that the Rock has posted of him as Roadblock already look more "normal" than what we saw before.

Well I just hope hasbro decides to go easy on the ridiculously over-the-top launchers that come with the figures this time around for the movie toys. And it would be nice if they continue the same level of craftsmanship on the detail and articulation like they have with POC line.

Check our Q&A for an answer sort of to that point...  Sounds like, while POC set a bar, that it's not a lock that GIJ2 figures will be of the same high quality.  It'll be a balance, and in a movie year I expect goofy action featured weapons and less cool stuff.  Just like Star Wars.

Sorry for the super big hot linked image, but I'm stoked there's actually something in this movie that looks like it should - RB aside kinda.

First trailer is online.  I know it is just a trailer and everything, but it looks pretty sweet so far.  I really like the improved looks of Snake Eyes (who wasn't bad in the first movie aside from the "mouth"), and definitely Cobra Commander.
