First of all, spoiler alert?
Tough to say. Marlon Wayans is a professional comedian, and it wouldn’t surprise me if he ad-libbed an interview here or there to get some people to notice, but hey, I still think this bears watching.
Member of the Terror Drome forums Roadblock Recall apparently heard an interview with the Wayans Brothers on local radio today promoting a comedy show, and Marlon was asked about the G.I. Joe series. His answer may surprise you, and to avoid spoilers you’ll have to click the “Read the Rest of this Story” link below for the details.
Still with us?
In the words of the aforementioned Roadblock Recall:
“Listened to a local radio station interview of Shawn and Marlon Wayons today. Marlon complained a little about not being in GI Joe 2. He said something like “I guess they realized they forgot to kill me in the first movie so now they have to do it in the sequel”
He elaborates that the sequel film begins at the funeral for Ripcord and he has apparently been killed at some point between G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. This of course begs the question…if they’re killing off Ripcord, what is the fate of the rest of the cast from the first film? Something similar?
Anyone notice that Channing Tatum only spent a couple of days filming the sequel in New Orleans before moving on to another project?
Thanks again to Roadblock Recall from The Terror Drome for the info.
