Whether or not you’re a G.I. Joe fan, there’s no denying that the enthusiasm G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu has for the toys, comics and cartoons is quite infectious to the point where even someone like myself, who never quite got into all aspects of the classic 80s G.I. Joes like someone people did–I read the comics and that’s it–finds myself even more intrigued by the fandom behind them every time I speak with him.
Bearing that in mind, SuperHeroHype got on the phone with Chu last week to talk about the movie’s Blu-ray and DVD release, finding out how the actual toys were used to create the film’s big mountain top set piece as well as some of the extra scenes you’ll have a chance to see that you didn’t get to see in theaters. We also talked briefly about how excited he is to have a chance to continue working in the world of G.I. Joe with a sequel they’re already actively figuring out.
