Well in a definite surprise move, Andrew Stewart of Variety is reporting that Paramount has greenlit a third G.I. Joe movie. Reports are coming in that G.I. Joe: Retaliation has done about $132 Million (estimated) Worldwide this opening weekend. And apparently Paramount thinks this is enough to call for a sequel. With some competition ahead for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, I still have to wonder what kind of “legs” the movie has in long-term box office numbers. Still some great news to hear a third movie will be made. Maybe this time around Cobra Commander will finally be the main antagonist, as opposed to Destro and Zartan from the first two. I supposed this should also be taken as a rumor until official word from Paramount is released. (Source: Twitter)
Yo Joe! After a $132 mil opening for G.I. JOE: RETALIATION, Paramount said it will move forward with a third JOE.
