Sooner or later - - even if they get denied the chance a couple times - - every actor’s going to play a superhero eventually. Just as Armie Hammer’s near-portrayal of Batman seemingly delayed an inevitable casting as the Lone Ranger, so too has Adrianne Palicki gotten another shot at superheroics after the rejection of the WONDER WOMAN TV show. Empire’s reported that she’ll be playing stealth operative Lady Jaye in G.I. JOE -- COBRA STRIKES.
You know, I was actually wondering where Lady Jaye was in the first one, anyway. She felt like a bigger part of the old cartoon than Cover Girl, Ripcord and Heavy Duty were, for sure. This new JOE movie’s almost getting a total make-over for its line-up, as only three characters from the first flick are coming back (Duke, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.) If you haven’t been keeping up with these quieter casting announcements, the team this time will include Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock (!), DJ Cotrona as Flint, Stephen Martines as Cross-Country, Elodie Yung as Jinx and the RZA as the Blind Master who presumably taught her and Snake Eyes.
I think I speak for every one in the Comic Vine community by voicing hope that Shipwreck will show up , too.
