Dwayne Johnson in G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Just last night "Justified" and Cowboys & Aliens star Walton Goggins joined the cast of G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation, and that comes after last week's cool announcement of Bruce Willis being in talks to play the original G.I. Joe in next summer's action figure sequel. Well, now we have our first look at another of the new cast members from the flick as Dwayne Johnson posted a picture of himself as Roadblock from the set on his own Twitter page. Johnson said: "1st day of shooting. 110 degrees. Bring it." This looks like it could just as easily be from Fast Five, but Johnson still looks like he's ready to kick some ass. Photo below!

Here's our first look at Dwayne Johnson in G.I. Joe: Retaliation (click for much larger version):

First Look - Dwayne Johnson in G.I. Joe: Retaliation

G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation is being directed by Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2 & 3D, "The LXD", Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick. Channing Tatum returns as Duke, along with Ray Park as Snake Eyes and Lee Byung-hun as Storm Shadow. Other newcomers to the cast include Bruce Willis as General Joseph B. Colton, Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye, Ray Stevenson as Firefly, Joseph Mazzello as Mouse, Arnold Vosloo as Zartan, D.J. Cotrona as Flint, and RZA as the Blind Master. Production begins later this month in New Orleans, as Paramount is planning to release G.I. Joe: Retaliation starting on June 29th, 2012 next summer. Thoughts?

I guess The Rock can fill Roadblock's shoes but would have loved Terry Crews instead. http://media.photobucket.com/image/gi%20joe%20roadblock/nerosday/ResoluteRoadblockPosed-1.jpg

HELLZ YES....  You nailed it.    but he's already kind of the Roadblock of the expendables, so he's even more badass in my mind. (silver lining!)

He needs a .50 cal browning  😉   Roadblock was a bit charismatic and I think the Rock can bring it!

Yeah, 'cause this couldn't be any other movie? I thought ya'll don't post stupid pointless things.

By adding Dwayne Johnson to the cast, are they admitting that they are actively engaged in trying to make this movie even worse than the first one?

REALLY? "Other newcomers to the cast include... Arnold Vosloo as Zartan..." REALLY? He had the best small-part in the movie; and he was even a major plot point. Come on, Imhotep deserves better (recognition).
