Big thanks to GeneralsJoes Twitter followers LtHowlett and Skot who both pretty much simultaneously let me know that IGN has posted a great video of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hyping up Roadblock in G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
It doesn’t reveal a whole lot of new information, but it certainly showcases The Rock’s personality and his enthusiasm when tackling this character. He speaks a bit about Roadblock’s “bond” with Snake Eyes, the “gun Kata” fighting style, and how the character remains skilled in the culinary arts and enjoys quoting a little poetry.
I will say it’s interesting how The Rock talks about Roadblock evolving into a “leader”, almost looking like he’s saying something he shouldn’t… does this confirm Duke’s exit from the film mythology? We’ll see in a few short months!
