Originally planned for release last year, it appears reshoots were needed to accommodate more of Channing Tatum's 'Duke' (originally killed off early in the film in the first cut), who had a pretty spectacular year at the box office in 2012 with hits like the 21 Jump Street remake, Magic Mike and The Vow. Plus it also allowed time to convert the movie to 3D.
At the end of the first film, audiences were left with the knowledge that Cobra's operative 'Zartan' had infiltrated the White House and impersonated the American President (played by Jonathan Pryce), now it looks like it's time for some G.I. Joe payback.
