G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Question: General Joe says he wants some of his own men in the mission. You see them when they are making the plan and the are other old men. They don't really do much if anything during the actual battle. Who are they?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: They are probably other retired Joes.

Question: Towards the beginning of the film, it is stated that Duke is the new leader of G.I. Joe. What happened to General Hawk between films?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: Most likely Hawk was killed in action, or he just retired. Eventually Duke advanced to leader.

Question: When the revelation is made about how Storm Shadow was framed for the murder of Hard Master, did the leader then already know it was Zartan and made the accusations to coax a statement from Storm, or did they really not know yet? Then entire scene felt rushed, and like they figured out what happened and who did it too quickly.

Quantom X

Chosen answer: The Blind Master says to Storm, "You will tell us Cobra's endgame or die by the same sword you once used to kill our master" near the start of this scene, meaning they really did not know that Zartan killed the Hard Master.

Chosen answer: I believe three are named as Grunt, Clutch and Tunnel Rat in the script and credits.

Question: Zartan asks the real president where the prison is where Cobra Commander and Destro are held. But didn't Zartan take the president's place at the end of the first movie, before those two were captured between films? So if that is something that would be told to the president, wouldn't Zartan already know? Or is this a major plot hole?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: Zartan is assuming the identity of the President. He doesn't have access to every single piece of information that the President knows. That's why the real President is kept alive in the case that Zartan needs information he doesn't know. Zartan can only do so much to look like and act like the President, but he has no idea about top secret information such as that. As for why Zartan would wait so long to free Cobra Commander and Destro, either that was part of Commander's plan, or Zartan has his reasons.

Question: Back in the old show and first movie, the Joes had a catchphrase battle cry where they all simply yelled out "Yo Joe!" But this was not used at all in this movie, and it was used just once in the first one by Heavy Duty. Why was this signature battle cry omitted from the new movies?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: It is just the decision of the writers to not put "Yo Joe!" in the script. They've not explained their reasoning.

Trivia

After Storm Shadow kills the last ninja guarding Zartan, Zartan knocks over a bunch of crates. Right after he does this, pay attention to the wall behind Zartan: you can see the logo there of the Umbrella Corporation, from the Resident Evil series.
