Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Not Return For G.I. Joe 2

Back in 2009, Stephen Sommers released the action blockbuster G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra to less than good reviews. The sub-par acting, excessive use of destruction to cover up a lack of storyline and some uncertain writing left most disappointed which could be why Sommers and most of the original cast will not be returning for the sequel.

Back in 2009, Stephen Sommers released the action blockbuster G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra to less than good reviews. The sub-par acting, excessive use of destruction to cover up a lack of storyline and some uncertain writing left most disappointed which could be why Sommers and most of the original cast will not be returning for the sequel.

It was announced in February that Justin Bieber: Never Say Never director Jon M. Chu would take a seat in the director’s chair for G.I. Joe 2, with only the characters of Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes and Duke making their return. A lot of speculation has come about as to whom the villain would be, possibly the return of Cobra Commander or Destro?

After taking the time to set up Cobra Commander as a villain in the first film, Joseph Gordon-Levitt revealed, via Collider, that he will not be back to reprise his role. The talented actor is finally getting his deserved recognition though, after this past summer’s mega hit Inception and seems to have a good perception of what films he should do next in his career, including Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises which begins filming this summer.

Some still speculate that Gordon-Levitt is just being secretive about his involvement with the project, but with the sequel being one of the least anticipated projects in the works, I truly believe he is out for good. What do you think?
