That doesnâ€™t necessarily mean bigger. It can be bigger in places, it just means different, but weâ€™re going to push really hard as fresh and new as we can be.â€
Di Bonaventura did mention that the new sequel may be similar to the â€œG.I. Joeâ€ sequel in which only having a few characters returning with a new plotline and not necessarily rebooting the entire franchise.
