The G.I. Joe stuff is coming in pretty regular now, with the movie gearing up for production soon. Even so, I was surprised to stumble across this little bit of SPOILER over at CHUD, which has the identity of Cobra Commander, and his past relation to G.I. Joe bigwig Duke. I’m marking this as SPOILER, so don’t read on if you don’t want to know.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character is Duke’s best friend… and he’s also Cobra Commander. It seems that the character was a former Joe who went to the old dark side and started the whole Cobra terrorist organization.
Well, a couple of things there: Isn’t Joseph Gordon-Levitt a little too young to be playing the Cobra Commander, much less the “best friend” of Duke, who I am guessing will be a guy in his ’30s or possibly early ’40s? And where exactly is the wisdom of making a 20-something actor the head honcho of a terrorist organization?
Eh, I don’t know, it doesn’t sound right to me.
