Snake Eyes. Scarlett. Storm Shadow. Duke. And … Ripcord? Okay, so maybe not a whole lot of people who grew up with the ’80s cartoon, and who have been hoarding Joe action figures since they were a wee tyke will be showing up in theaters to see Marlon Wayans as Ripcord. But let’s face it, haven’t we all been waiting to see Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow bang swords on the big screen and in live-action forever? Well we’ve finally gotten our wish: “G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra” opens today, and this is your official discussion thread.
