The second movie in the Hasbro franchise was delayed for nine months in order to convert the film into 3-D and for reshoots with Channing Tatum.

It is not known which surviving characters will return for a third installment, but the principals - which also included Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, D.J. Cotrona and Ray Park (as fan favorite Snake Eyes) are rumored to be sought after for another battle with Cobra Commander.
