Dwayne Johnson is Roadblock in "GI Joe" Sequel

Posted: June 6th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Dwayne Johnson is Roadblock in "GI Joe" SequelSubmit Comment
It was recently reported that only Channing Tatum (Duke), Ray Park (Snake Eyes) and Lee Byung-hun (Storm Shadow) will be returning for the sequel to "GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra."

And today, Variety has learned that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is in talks to play Roadblock in the new film. The character is described as someone carrying a .50 Browning machine gun with accompanying 50 lbs ammo and still be able to endure the powerful recoils. But his desire is to become a gourmet chef.

The new film will be directed by Jon M. Chu (Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, Step Up 3D) who will begin filming this month. It is set to hit theaters on August 10th, 2012.

Roadblock is black and he should STAY black, quit f*cking with the characters *ssholes. And quit injecting that no-talent meatheaded stooge into everything. Tnank you.

If you can't even get a stupid wayans brother with no career choices to appear in this film then why bother. I see fail all the way with this one!

A lack of talent is definitely this guy's 'roadblock'.

Another reason of why this movie will fail. Others are: Channing Tatum and Justin Bieber's director.

ehh, I don't see it... but if you could somehow go back in time 30 years and recruit his dad Rocky Johnson.
That guy was the spitting image of Roadblock.

Good. This and dumping the sh*tty wayans brother are steps in the right direction. Now get rid of that dancing faggot Channing Tatum and you might have something here.

Dwayne Johnson is a great actor so I think he will play Roadblock well but the film fails then all blame will go to Jon M. Chu and writers Rhette Resse and Paul Werwick who write the script for Deadpool.

FIRE YOUR AGENT ROCK!!!

Find out whoever represents Chris Evans or Ryan Reynold and hire them.

The more I thought about him in the role, the more it fits. Yep, it'll work.

Actually, minkowski, The Rock is half Black. He isn't a good actor, that is true, but his ethnicity should not be the problem. His talent is the problem. In fact, why even make a second one. The first sucked no matter who was in it.

Never could see him fitting into this franchise. I hate everything about this franchise. It doesn't even deserve to be called a franchise.

Who cares...the first one was such a piece of trash, adding the Rock almost seems fitting.

I dont know why I even care enough to follow the news on this POS movie, especially after the first POS. Maybe cause GI Joe was one of my fav cartoons growing up and want to see it done right. Oh well itll prob get rebooted on about 5-10 years so hopefully it will be good then.
Carlos Spicy Wiener writes:

As far as the Rock being "half black" I dont care if hes 100% black. If he looks samoan he should not be playing a "black" character.

"The Rock is half Black. He isn't a good actor, that is true, but his ethnicity should not be the problem."

I'm aware of his mixed lineage. That wasn't the point. Roadblock is a black cajun, IIRC, not some dude you looks like he's from Samoa. Wrong characterization, and if you disagree, you've never seen the character in action.

Make him black f*ckers!
