With the release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, many people are wondering if there will be another G.I. Joe movie. We take a look at the possibility.

As of now, there are no plans for another G.I. Joe movie. The last movie in the franchise, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, was released in 2013 and was not as successful as expected. While a third movie had been planned, it was ultimately scrapped due to the lack of interest from both audiences and studio executives.
What is Gi Joe?
The G.I. Joe franchise began with the release of the first movie in 2009. The movie was based on the popular toy line and comics of the same name. It was a huge success, grossing over $300 million at the box office. This led to a sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which was released in 2013.
While there has been no official word on another G.I. Joe movie, it is rumored that a third movie is in development.
The First Gi Joe Movie
The first Gi Joe movie was released in 2009 and was directed by Stephen Sommers. The movie received mixed reviews from critics, but was a box office success, grossing over $302 million worldwide.
The Second Gi Joe Movie
It is unclear if there will be another Gi Joe movie. The second movie, GI Joe: Retaliation, was not as successful as the first movie, making only $375 million worldwide. However, the second movie did have a higher budget than the first movie, so it is possible that a third movie could still be made.
Will There Be Another Gi Joe Movie?
It’s hard to say for certain whether or not there will be another GI Joe movie. The last one, “Retaliation,” didn’t do as well as expected at the box office, so the studio may be hesitant to invest in another installment. However, the franchise has a large and passionate fan base, so it’s possible that we could see another GI Joe movie down the line. Only time will tell!
What the Fans Want
As of late, Hollywood has been pumping out a lot of sequels and prequels to some of our most beloved childhood movies. This trend started with the release of films like Toy Story 4 and The Lion King (2019), and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. So, the question on everybody’s mind is: will there be another GI Joe movie?
The last GI Joe film came out in 2013, and was met with mixed reviews. Some fans loved it, while others felt that it was a bit of a let-down. Regardless, the film made enough money at the box office to warrant a sequel – which is currently in development.
So far, there is no word on when the new GI Joe film will be released, or what its plot will entail. However, fans are hoping that the sequel will be better than the first film, and that it will do justice to the iconic franchise.
What the Critics Want
When it comes to the toy-based action movies, Michael Bay’s “Transformers” franchise has been a bigger success than “G.I. Joe.” The first “G.I. Joe” movie was released in 2009 and grossed over $300 million worldwide, but its sequel “Retaliation” failed to live up to those expectations in 2013. Now that Paramount Pictures has pushed back the release date of “G.I. Joe 3” from 2016 to 2017, fans are wondering if the studio has lost faith in the franchise.
The answer may lie in the critical reception of the first two movies. On Rotten Tomatoes, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” has a score of 19% and “Transformers: Age of Extinction” has a score of 18%, but both movies grossed over $1 billion at the box office. In contrast, “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” has a score of 36% and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” has a score of 37%. While those numbers are not terrible, they definitely indicate that critics are not as enamored with the franchise as they are with Bay’s other toy-based property.
If Paramount is looking at the critical reaction to make its decision about whether or not to move forward with “G.I. Joe 3,” then it doesn’t look good for fans who are hoping for another installment in the franchise.
What the Cast Wants
When it comes to a possible sequel to G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the cast seems to be on board. Dwayne Johnson, who played Roadblock in the film, recently said that he would “love” to do another movie.
“I had a great time making that movie and I love those guys,” Johnson told Collider. “I would love to do it again.”
Johnson isn’t the only one who feels that way. Channing Tatum, who played Duke in the film, also said that he would be open to doing another G.I. Joe movie.
“I don’t know what the plans are for another one, but I loved making that movie and I loved everyone involved in it, so yeah, absolutely,” Tatum said.
So far, there has been no word on whether or not a sequel is actually in the works, but with the cast seeming so enthusiastic about it, there’s a good chance we could see another G.I. Joe movie sometime in the future.
What the Creators Want
Since the release of the last Gi Joe movie, fans have been waiting for news about a possible sequel. In a recent interview, the film’s producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura revealed what it would take for another Gi Joe movie to happen.
“I think it would really depend on getting the creative elements lined up that were as strong as they were on the first movie,” he said. “I thought that the combination of Stephen Sommer’s direction andruce Willis’ performance, and then Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum in the lead roles, made for a really strong film.”
Bonaventura added that he is open to making another Gi Joe movie, but only if the creative team can come up with a story that is as strong as the first film.
It seems unlikely that there will be another Gi Joe movie anytime soon. The last movie was released in 2013 and was not very well-received by either critics or audiences. Since then, there has been very little talk of another Gi Joe film. It’s possible that Hasbro, the toy company that owns the Gi Joe franchise, may release a new movie sometime in the future, but it seems unlikely at this point.
