New Look At Lady Jaye In 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'; Producer Confirms Cobra Commander Is A New Character

File this piece of news deep within the "no shit, Sherlock" department – Joseph Gordon-Levitt will not be playing the Cobra Commander in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation.” Fans of the first film (that film has fans, right?) will remember that The Baroness’ (Sienna Miller) little brother Rex Lewis, who was assumed to have died in a mission, (SPOILER!!!!) was only the Cobra Commander all along. Well producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura spoke to Moviefone last month and has confirmed (as if anyone ever thought otherwise) that JGL will not be reprising his role.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Adrianne Palicki skip crop

File this piece of news deep within the "no shit, Sherlock" department – Joseph Gordon-Levitt will not be playing the Cobra Commander in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation.” Fans of the first film (that film has fans, right?) will remember that The Baroness’ (Sienna Miller) little brother Rex Lewis, who was assumed to have died in a mission, (SPOILER!!!!) was only the Cobra Commander all along. Well producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura spoke to Moviefone last month and has confirmed (as if anyone ever thought otherwise) that JGL will not be reprising his role.

Asked if this time around Cobra Commander was the "same character" as in the first film, Bonaventura said “no,” added that he was a “different guy,” and revealed “someone else took over yet.” So never fear Joe fans, the character will still be around regardless. In the course of the same interview he also hinted that Destro may be returning in some form as well, despite Christopher Eccleston not reprising the role. But more intriguingly, he also said "I'm sorry, Channing Tatum is in the movie as well. I keep forgetting." -- probably a sign that his role will be as minor as we imagined. But after the way he’s bossed the box office during the first quarter of the year, it might still be a good idea to get him on some marketing material.

There’s also a new image for the movie doing the rounds thanks to Twitter, and it’s of Adrianne Palicki’s Lady Jaye wearing a leather suit and wielding a big old gun. Is anyone excited for this movie? Do we want to see another image of Lady Jaye? Does anybody care? Oh wait, what’s that? The Rock’s in it? AND Bruce Willis? We’ll be first in line when the film hits theatres on June 29th.
