One of the reasons why G.I. Joe: Retaliation looks better than the first film is, quite simply, Dwayne Johnson. I’m of the opinion that if you want to make any franchise better, all you need to do is add The Rock. Look what Universal did with Fast Five…they added Johnson and it’s the best of the series. And in the G.I. Joe sequel, Johnson has been brought in as Roadblock and he’s front and center leading the Joe’s against Cobra.
During a fantastic group interview on set when the production was filming in New Orleans, Johnson talked about how he got involved in G.I. Joe, why he wanted to play Roadblock, the WWE, his weapons, working with director Jon M. Chu, the Fast and Furious franchise, interacting with his fans on social media, and so much more. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
