GI Joe 3 is happening for sure as the third movie in the franchise was confirmed last year. Hasbro and Paramount have teamed up to bring the GI Joe action figures into live-action and the first two movies despite being not liked by the critics were loved by the fans. It is why GI Joe sequel titled ‘GI Joe: Ever Vigilant’ is under making and will come out very soon.
