    I'm really curious to see how they handle such a public actor playing a character known for being mute and wearing a mask 100% of the time.

    Well, that's why they chose to do an origin picture here - because he can still talk in character and show his face. So yeah, the sequels, if there are any, are going to be interesting. I'd hope they explained that aspect ahead of time and he agreed to it, but who knows? It might be like Stallone not wearing the helmet in Judge Dredd.

    In any case, Scarlett is a bad ass and is a good character to play. She's arguably the female lead of the GI Joe franchise.

    Yeah you pretty much can't cast Henry Golding as Snake Eyes and then mask him up for most of the movie.
    What's the character of Scarlet like? Serious, no-nonsense? Funny one liners? I have no idea what to expect. I have a feeling she wouldn't get to do much. Many action films are devoid of much personality.

    It...depends. She can be pretty serious, but she has some levity to her.

    What is his origin never read the comics or watched much of the cartoon? Saw the last two movies and didn't hate them. Those were way differently clearly. He was a white kid who took a vow of silence after his bestfriend was framed for killing his Master. Curious what the real origin is. Also golding can play him here and they can't let a stunt actor do the role Going forward if they really keep him mute and helmeted. Supporting cast better be stellar then though.

    I'm not really digging the Baroness' look here. I wonder if Cobra is already a thing.

    I'm not a GI Joe expert, so my take on his origins is same as yours - informed by the movies. I just know I heard or saw something recently that said they were starting with the origin to get around the non-talking bit...was that a link in this thread or something? Trying to remember if it was a video or an article...

    Agreed, there's nothing here to set it apart or stand above your average summer action flick. I mean, it doesn't look bad - but it also doesn't look great. Maybe 20 years ago that would have been an impressive scene (the opening car chase/fight), something not easily replicable in the 90's action movies. But now it's similar to a lot of scenes we've seen before, and not done particularly well at that.
    Should have focused more on the ninja type action. We got some flashes of sword fight scenes, but nothing beyond that.

    Yea id say most the set pieces from GI Joe retaliation stand out more then this trailer. I remember some cool stuff with Shadow Storm and Snake eyes and Jynx fighting Cobra on the side of a mountain. Though my biggest take away from that film was how big Ray Stevenson really is. Knew he was big but he looked bigger then The Rock during they're fight scene. Like noticeably bigger

    After watching the trailer I don't see Snake-Eyes the Origin. Instead I see The Ninja by by Eric Van Lustbader

    IIRC, in the comics, Snake-Eyes (a blonde white guy) served with Storm Shadow in Viet Nam and saved his life.(they were both like 18) The movie took a bunch from the comics in that when Snake-Eyes goes to train with Storm Shadow (after the war, not as kids though), their master is murdered and Storm Shadow is seen fleeing, so they think he did it, but it turns out later that it was Zartan. (long story) He doesn't take a vow of silence though. He later meets Scarlett when they join the Joes and when they're in a helicopter accident, Snake-Eyes carries her out of the wreckage, but his throat and face are severely damaged, and that's why he can't talk, and why he covers his face. But that's old history anyway since that Snake-Eyes is dead in the comics.(as far as I know)

    Thanks. On paper it seems like a good match. My favorite Samara Weaving performances seem like that. Badass characters but she often brings a sense of humor, which i think is underrated. With good writing this might be a memorable role.

    Thanks. Why didn't i think of checking the wiki? �� It seems like she has a connection with Snake Eyes. So, its not like she's there just for the GI Joe connection.
