From the looks of it, there will be more focus on Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes’ rivalry in the upcoming “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”. We’ll also be seeing probably a lot more of Snake Eyes, much more than in the first movie, I’m guessing, but they’ll still be supporting players in the bigger scheme of things if the other trailers/clips are any indication. I think this is how the whole Storm Shadow/Snake Eyes thing works best — always on the verge of boiling over in the background, and popping up periodically throughout the franchise to remind you just what badass ninjas they are, but never the center of attention.
Check out a new featurette for Jon Chu’s “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” that dives into the character of Storm Shadow (as played by Byung-hun Lee) and what awaits him in the sequel.
In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.
Starring Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, Ray Park, Joseph Mazzello, Arnold Vosloo, Elodie Yung, Walton Goggins, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, D.J. Cotrona, and Matt Gerald.
It’s ninja fightin’ this March 28, 2013.
