Is Channing Tatum The Real Reason Behind G.I. Joe 2’s Delayed Release?

The news that G.I. Joe: Retaliation was having its release date pushed from June 29th, 2012 to March 29th, 2013 prompted a lot of questions, which resulted in an announcement that certain scenes being re-shot with 3D technology in an effort to capitalize on foreign markets.

However, Deadline claims to have the real answer, and if you don’t mind spoilers, read on…

Apparently the delay is actually due to the re-filming of scenes based on a poor reaction from test audiences, who reportedly disliked the fact that Channing Tatum’s character Duke was killed early in the film and that there was a lack of character development between himself and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

At least they’re working to fix things before you spend money on a ticket.
