Stephen Sommers’ “G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra” was a cheerfully dumb mess. The sequel, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” killed off Channing Tatum, brought in Dwayne Johnson, had a cameo from Bruce Willis and…was still a dumb mess. But it is expected to earn more than $100 million worldwide more than its processor. So Paramount is moving ahead with “G.I. Joe 3”. And if screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick expect to see Roadblock back and…the Baroness? That is kind of ironic since she was about the only villain not mentioned in the sequel. She was played by Sienna Miller in the first film.
