G.I. Joe Retaliation was delayed because Channing Tatum (Duke) died at the beggining of the movie and they wanted to add more scenes of him in the movie so that he would not die right away. aslo because they wanted to "make" the movie 3-D. I believe that they should keep channing tatum through out the whole movie and not kill him at all. many fans were looking forward to seeing him on the upcoming Movie G.I. Joe Retaliation as well as people were looking forward to see Rachel Nichols (Scarlett) , which was taken out of the 2nd movie, and many would like to see her on the second movie as well. please sign the petition, we are asking to keep Channing Tatum (Duke) without him dying and to bring in Rachel Nichols (Scarlett) in to G.I. Joe Retaliation.
