Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is a new martial arts action film exploring the origins of Snake Eyes and his complicated rivalry with Storm Shadow. The film will show what it takes to become a ninja assassin and what it costs.
While the Comic-Con@Home panel didn’t really give much new information in regards to the film’s story, we were introduced to the cast. The film will include Henry Golding (Snake Eyes), Andrew Koji (Storm Shadow), Úrsula Corberó (Baroness), Samara Weaving (Scarlet), Haruka Abe (Akiko), Iko Uwais (Hard Master), Peter Mensah (Blind Master), and Takehiro Hira (Kenta).
From the promotional material, its clear that Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is an action movie first and foremost. I think that’s a wise move, and I’m perfectly happy to watch ninjas and spies killing each other. If Snake Eyes delivers a fun adventure with some memorable fights, then it clears the bar as far as I’m concerned.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins will release in theaters this Friday.
