As for letting Jeremy Renner "get bigger" that's studio double speak that "It's not a good film." (You don't push a film 10 months without there being problems with the film... As most are now suspecting with GI Joe, since the latest test screenings have not been doing well.)
When John Chu was announced as the director for GI Joe 2, everyone went "WTF?" (Aside from an actual sequel even being made.) - The marketing was good, which gave people hope, but the delay is going to kill any domestic prospect for the film. - People know when something stinks, as Battleship has proven. (No doubt that has something to do with the delay...) - There's no way a 9 month delay will help GI Joe 2, I wouldn't be surprised to see it released internationally a month early as Universal did with Battleship, in order to avoid the poor early response they knew they were going to get in the US.
Besides, you know Paramount must be somewhat delusional when they're pointing to Titanic as a valid reason to post convert GI Joe 2. This is really going to look bad after they dump another 45-50 million into the film for the post-conversion and re-marketing of the film. (And let's not talk about how much Hasbro will probably eat in merchandise returns...)

There's a lot of speculation out there right now as to why G.I.Joe: Retaliation was pushed back nearly a year. While Paramount execs are touting the financial boost of 3D, some film critics are insinuating that the move may have ulterior motives. Regardless, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has confirmed that they will actually be shooting new scenes for 3D rather than opting for a simple post film, 3D conversion. Also, there are reports that Paramount is using the additional time to actively pursue Joseph Gordon-Levitt to return as Cobra Commander. With The Dark Knight Rises and Looper set to release later this year, JGL's profile will surely be front and center to the movie-going populace.
It will be. Designing new scenes to enhance 3D. RT: @JimmyinGA: Was looking forward to GI Joe next month. Hope the 3D is worth the wait.

This isn't an issue with the 3D conversion process, it's an issue with the actual quality of the films.
The fact that they're going back to do re-shoots for GI Joe 2 this late in the game, 3D or not, is a telling sign of how bad the flim is now testing. Again, this is dumping money into a project where the studio should just cut their losses.

The context of the reference to Titanic was more likely in regards to its visual quality- it's the high water mark for conversions and shows what you can do when you take the time. Avengers is an example of a first-run release that broke records, and the difference maker was the 3D premiums. Ask most people and they'll tell you that they doubt Dark Knight will beat Avengers, solely because it's 2D only.
