“When Steven told me, ‘Hey, what do you think about ending the movie like this?’ I couldn’t believe it. I was like, ‘If you can get that approved – there are so many people involved in the decision-making process – but if you can, it would be mind-blowing.’ And they actually did it, man. As a fan of both these worlds… G.I. Joe, man! I used to have those little action figures and create epic battles. I was just over the moon!”
