Hot on the heels of the MIB3 trailer is the trailer for the new G.I. Joe sequel. While the first movie had a plethora of problems, it looks like the sequel may just fix some… while creating all new ones.
From the looks of G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘s debut trailer, it would appear that
1. Roadblock, a secondary character from the cartoon series has been given a starring role via Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
2. Most of the Joes die, including possibly Duke (not much of a loss… Channing Tatum was a terrible casting job for Duke)
3. Cobra Commander is nowhere to be found
4. Storm Shadow is alive!
5. There will be plenty of ninja action in this one
Where the largest action pieces boasted in the first film’s trailer involved Paris and bionic super suits — two things that have nothing to do with G.I. Joe — the ninja attack sequence along a mountainside involving Snake Eyes actually looks like something we’d see in G.I. Joe. Hopefully they got it right the second time.
Oh… and the surprise “original Joe” shown at the end? Heck yes!
