Will the Baroness return in G.I. Joe 3?

Apr. 25, 2013by: Alex Maidy

With G.I. JOE: RETALIATION redeeming the franchise after the awful RISE OF COBRA, it was a foregone conclusion that the team behind the sequel's success would be brought in for a third film. While it is still very early in development, G.I. JOE 3 writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Miller are formulating ideas on what they want to see happen to the characters, including one particular one.

Wernick and Miller, during press for the release of the pilot of the ZOMBIELAND television series, told IGN they want to “resurrect the Baroness like a zombie” for G.I. JOE 3. Not sure exactly what that means as the Sienna Miller character did not die in RISE OF COBRA. Could they have been speaking figuratively or possibly have something in mind to happen to the character? Could we be getting a G.I. JOE movie featuring zombies?

I think what we can assume is that the core characters who survived in G.I. JOE: RETALIATION will return for the third film, possibly including some characters dropped from the first movie. The only guarantee we have is that Dwayne Johnson will likely remain the leader and focus for the future of the series. If Paramount has their way, I would anticipate seeing G.I. JOE 3 as early as next year but more likely in 2015.

G.I. JOE - Transformers Merger !!!

SPOILER BELOW....Beware

What??? Duke Dies?? THis is Freakin Awesome news! YESSS! they got rid of Channing Freakin Tatum, THis is the greatest news ever, He was the worst Duke choice ever... Duke is supposed to be an Older Mature man, Not some Ghetto Talking High school sounding dude.
While I Don't like the idea of Duke Dying, its worth it totally in this case Channing Tatum is to Duke what Kirsten Dunst was to Mary Jane ...both terrible choices

Also what I hate is the relationship

Also what I hate is the relationship between Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes ...............I hate the fact that Storm Shadow is played by a Korean Guy who looks Korean (most of you guys cannot tell because your ignorant and think all asians look alike) Storm Shadow is Japanese and this guy did not play him well............. Nice outfits but again wrong guy.
Baroness Sucked..... she should have been played by the lady who played Jean Grey in X-Men ( Famke something ) don't believe me? just watch her in That Bond movie where she played I think a Russian Hit woman or something Like that....the Pierce Brosnan Bond movie.

On a side note Channing might have been ok as an unmasked Snake Eyes as long as he didnt talk......oh wait!! Snake Eyes Doesn't Talk! Wow a light bulb went off in my head! Yes ...... Channing should have played Unmasked Snake Eyes ( I understand Ray Park has to do the stunts y'all ) .................... and if she was still younger my Choice for Lady Jaye would have been Demi Moore ( Think GI Jane )

Another thing.....these people are not thinking BIG enough.. GI Joe should be on the same scale as STAR WARS......Cobra Commander is Iconic.....Joseph Gorden Levitt Failed to realise this.... or perhaps the people who explained to him the role...........what a waste.
Anyway I hope these people see that G.I. JOE needs to do a Cross over with Transformers as did The combining of the Avengers and as Justice League will do.....Make it Happen as in The Comics!

more opinions on retaliation

first, i'm a huge gi joe guy. they were my favorite toys growing up and I have a special place in my heart for all things gi joe. but retaliation had some stuff that was kind of ehh. already mentioned about duke below. but the whole storm shadow twist was dumb. cobra is recruiting kids on potential? dumb. at some point in gi joe lore storm shadow and snake eyes fight together. but the way it was done here was just dumb. flints introduction was awesome as hell and then he never really

fine with me

ok I've been waiting for a chance to say something about retaliation since I just saw it last week. if you haven't seen the movie and are planning to, spoilers ahead. retaliation was good in that the action was done well and the focus was on few characters. It was very entertaining. but the the first gi joe, while campy at times had more heart. and where retaliation was awesome introducing an iconic member in flint it failed mightily with the demise of duke. you can't have duke die!

I'm all for more strong female leads, less oversexualization.

I didn't appreciate the portrayal of women in the Rise of Cobra. They were beautiful, and kicked -some- ass, but they also had extremely tight outfits and didn't add much to the plot (even as thin as it was) nor were they given much dialogue.

I was pleasantly surprised by Retaliation, though, because the female characters had outfits that were nice, but not reeking of "designed by perverted 12 year olds." Not to mention they were also extremely strong, and weren't relegated to the roles

Not to mention they were also extremely strong, and weren't relegated to the roles of the "damsels in distress." I loved that so much. It was a wonderful breath of fresh air :) The last bit with Joe and Jaye was heartwarming and just solidified my interpretation from the previous majority of the film about the strong female lead. :)

So, I would love more strong female characters in the next GI Joe movie, but I will be extremely saddened if they regress in their idea of a strong female character. They have a good thing going, and I'd hate to see them pedal back on that.

When GI Joe 3 comes out...

people will be saying how great it was and how "awful" the first two films were. GI Joe movies are fun rides that don't exactly benefit from repeated viewings: we see how bad they are the second time we see them and assume we always thought they were crap and we forget how good a time we had when we first saw them.

Honestly, I'd be happy if they brought her back, along with Rachel Nichols, Destro, and the other members of the Joe team other than Marlon Waynes. Lady J was meh, and that other guy with her and the Rock was about as useful as a wet blanket. In short, take the good parts of both movies and we might finally get a great G.I. Joe movie.

I hope so and they get a sexy actress to play her. Eva Green would be perfect.

Most likely they just incorporated zombie into the conversation since they're promoting the TV show.
