    What's weird is I remember the toy line that came AFTER that, Shadow Ninjas, that had some sort of gimmick similar to what the Zartan toy had. Snake Eyes was a part of that.

    Hasbro can't seem to find a decent balance between ninjas and the non-ninjas.
    Because like it or not, Ninjas are the draw. I think Hasbro finally figured that out and is cutting out the fat (G.I. Joe) to get to the real meat. I don't agree (I like it all) but what's popular is popular. So for the movies they have a choice: Take a chance with another Joe movie that features Snake Eyes and hope for the best, or, give folks Snake Eyes solo.

    others?
    I couldn't think of any movies that I wanted to see a sequel to until I saw this post. A sequel to Freddy Vs. Jason with Ash would be incredible.

    Oh my god that would be horrible. The whole point of The Usual Suspects was the lead up to that masterful ending. What the hell would you even do for a sequel? Anything they come up with not be as good as the original, and if you can't be as good as the original then why bother.

    I was hoping the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen would have a sequel.

    I think a lot of these movies mentioned need reboots instead of sequels like League of Extraordinary Gentleman or that terrible Green Lantern movie.

    Yeah, I'd second a decent first movie rather a sequel to a disappointing film.

    Sky High. (Though frankly, the sequel probably wouldn't be as good as the original.) I'll have to settle for The Incredibles 2.

    Because like it or not, Ninjas are the draw. I think Hasbro finally figured that out and is cutting out the fat (G.I. Joe) to get to the real meat.

    No, I don't mind that Snake Eyes is getting his own solo. It's that the other movies might as well have been called Snake Eyes from the start, which makes the concept of him getting a solo kind of redundant. I know his place in the franchise and of course ninjas are the draw. Some iterations of GI Joe would give him entirely focused subplots or even main plots, that's fine. But there should be at least some truth in advertising with the movies, and Hasbro's non-Snake Eyes ninjas tend to be forgettable because of how they treat ninjas.
