I so don't want to look forward to next year's G.I. Joe movie. They've completely reworked the concept in order to appeal to a broader audience. The casting is all over the place, from the promising (Christopher Eccleston as Destro) to the bizarre (Joseph Gordon Levitt as Cobra Commander). It's being directed by Stephen Sommers who made even an inherently cool concept such as Van Helsing suck terribly. Plus it seems like such a rush job to cash-in on the success of the Transformers movie. I'm pretty sure Hasbro is even prepping Monopoly and Mr. Potato Head movies to follow. All that being said, check out the first pic of Snake Eyes. I've often wondered about the practicality of having a ninja on a military ops team, but at least he's a ninja who's comfortable using guns. And a wolf. Still he's a fan favorite and it looks like they've captured his look well for the movie.
