Channing Tatum is back as Duke, Ray Park is in as Snake Eyes, and Lee Byung-hung is reprising his role as Storm Shadow, but that’s about all the true connective tissue you’ll find between G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and its sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Plus, from the looks of the trailer, its Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock that will really be leading the team.
Behind the scenes, Joe is being led by a new director in Jon Chu and new screenwriters in Zombieland scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.
It’s truly a brand new team.
But the trailer speaks for itself with pyrotechnics. Check it out for yourself:
Kaboom. The first was incredibly cartoonish, so it’ll be interesting to see whether they keep that tone or if the flick will live up to this trailer’s promise of pure muscle, Adrianne Palicki outside of a Wonder Woman outfit, and an aerial sword fight.
