I seriously doubt this is legit. It doesn't seem to flow with what we know already about the movie, more new joes? Unless there are some code names for their code names, or this blurbs reference an early version of the script i'm really doubtful this is true. Ok, I'm also hopeful this isn't true. Up till now i have been excited about the new movie, this turns my stomach a bit.

I really hate Mouse's character description "Newest recruit on the team played by Joseph Mazzello. He's a Southern boy, "18 going on 11." He's got no real combat experience, but he's played a lot of Call of Duty." then why the hell was he recruited to be part of GIJOE?

A huge agreement here. I'm hoping that's because he wasn't recruited to Joe as infantry, maybe he is a tech specialist who should be behind the desk, but for some reason or another (attack on the base?) he gets forced to be in the field. This could make some sense. of course, I'm also hoping he is canon fodder :)

Yeah... maybe the true plot of the second movie is to make it sooo bad, people look to the first as a masterpiece.

I love gi joe but this isnt it. Really hoping this isn't legit but i think that's wishful thinking.

If this is legit, it sounds worse than the first movie.

@lol@
And we thought Lt. Falcon didn't make any sense in G.I. Joe the Movie.

Hiss tank confirms this is "way off" via message from script writer. Although I must confess can we be sure of his identity? Apparently the mods there are confident.

I don't care if it is WAY off.. if there are any new Joes.. then it is stupid. Mouse is already 1 too many..

what, they couldn't find any of the hundreds of Joe characters already in existence that they liked?

Taking the "American Hero" out of it and making Joe a joint international operation was bad enough. Now if they forgo only letting the most elete men and women in favor of 18-going-on-11 video game players???

Mehhh, I'm just going to stop there. What does it matter.....?

I might let the Mouse thing slide if he was more Mainframe with a different name. Of course, MF had combat experience and although he liked video games, still seemed a bit more mature than 18 going on 11. And he wasn't southern. Why does there always have to be a southern new recruit. It is becoming so cliche. Yes, we get it, you have an accent. Because you're from somewhere in the south. UGH. @grumpy@

Even if this wasn't outed, I wouldn't take how an actor played the role as in story canon. Those guidelines that he was more of a COD player than a solider may have been their solely to help the actor fufill the role of a rookie.

I really think this movie is going to be worst than the last one. I hope the get some better script writers than what they have now. Just not interested in any of the new Characters. The new Characters Kinda remind me of the characters that Image comics had created.

considering this has been debunked, you haven't seen the movie, and i'm betting you haven't seen a script, I'm confused as to how you have arrived at this conclusion. The Only new to joe character (and there was an extreme version) confirmed is Mouse. Even if all the above are there, are they really going to take leads of Roadblock, Snake-Eyes, Flint, Duke, Jynx, and Lady Jaye?

More than likely there a bit of truth to what was released, but I believe that many of the characters named will have about as much screen time as Sgt Stone and "Jinx" from the first movie had.

Who is Hiss Tank to say what is right and wrong because they claim to know a script writer? Can we get Hiss Tank to release information about the casting call from the script writer?

okay, ignore them, about looking at TNI's own front page, this was confirmed to be "way off" via twitter by a writer as well.

I feel like people are posting without reading! It's getting a little aggravating, are our attention spans so short we can't read all the info first? especially when there is so little to read!

If this was always the case then nothing would ever get posted because people wouldn't post after reading every little thing...
