So what are the chances that Marlon Wayans’ character Ripcord will, at one point or another in Stephen Sommers’ “G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra” utter the line, “Now that’s what I’m talking about?” Probably while holding up a BFG? Cause, you know, that’s almost a Movie Law or something when you have sassy black characters in an action movie. Just wondering. Anyways, here are four new character posters from Sommers’ upcoming “G.I. Joe”, featuring Ripcord, Duke, Baroness, Snake Eyes, and Storm Shadow. As per their usual gag, Paramount Pictures sent each “exclusive” poster to different movie sites. We didn’t get one, of course, probably because our readers don’t speak good English so good and are currently logged on from public libraries, at least when they’re not serving jail time for being too awesome.
G.I. Joe is a highly trained, classified Special Operations Unit composed of men and woman from around the globe. Officially, these warriors don’t even exist. Few know the truth – that G.I. Joe fights a secret war, as the first and last line of defence against forces that seek to plunge our world into chaos. Wherever there’s trouble, G.I. Joe is there!
