It's been quite a wild ride keeping up with the "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" release this year. The film was originally scheduled to be one of the big blockbusters of Summer 2012, complete with trailers and posters plastered around town. Paramount Pictures then made the bold move to shift the film, almost an entire year, to its new release date of March 29th 2013.

Speculation around the push revolves around stripper-turned-actor Channing Tatum. It was known that Tatum was killed off early in the sequel, per his own request, which was most likely due to his fame rising at a rapid pace and him not wanting to be handcuffed to the franchise. The producers allowed it at the time but once the prophecy came true of the actor's growing popularity, they apparently needed to go back on their previous arrangement. Tatum was brought back for reshoots to make him more of a dominant character in the second film and the movie was recut.

Take a look at the poster below and you can see the biggest names in the film, including Tatum, not-so-subtly overshadowing the lesser known actors.

Director Jon M. Chu leads Tatum and the cast in "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" which hits AMC Theatres on March 29th 2013.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
