Thats a pretty good cast. Any word on Cobra Commander!

Not sure if there is something started for this yet so I thought I would give people who might not know a heads up.

Channing Tatum (Duke), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Marlon Wayans (Ripcord), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Rex), Rachel Nichols (Scarlett), Sienna Miller (The Baroness), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Heavy Duty), Said Taghmaoui (Breaker) abd Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow), Dennis Quaid (Hawk), Arnold Vosloo (Zartan), David Murray (Destro) in the live-action feature.

ok I think first and formost we need to say which joes will make the film. And it should go down like this

Duke, Hawk, Flint, Snakeeyes, roadblock, scarlet, shipwreck, beachhead, gung ho, all these joes are 100% needed and if any ofthem are left out of the movie it will suck. The main problem in this team is that you have 3 leaders on one team so flint is gonna have to take a serious back seat to duke and Hawk will be an advisor.

Now cobra commander 100% must be voiced by the same guy from the cartoon or it will suck

Not yet. Rumors and etc, but no one confirmed as far as I know.

Ray Park as Snake Eyes! $#@!ing sweet. I think Zero Edge or Shatterstar have a blog about who will play Storm Shadow and Scarlet.

I'm still not sure on the plot for this yet. I've heard two differant things.

1) Was going to deal with Duke and his leading the team and relationship with Scarlet.

2) Said it would be centered aruond the story of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.

So I don't know. Then theres a lot of talk on where they would be stationed and people were getting p'od when rumors were going on that they wouldnt be in the U.S.

Duke and Scarlet? When did this happen? She's always been with Snake Eyes.

Thats what I was saying. I think it might of been from one of the early cartoons, but idk. Last I heard that idea was the scrapped for the second one...hopefully.

The second one is a good choice, but may be better served as a separate movie after the original is released.

I'll do some digging later on today and see what I can find revolving the plot/script.

I agree that the Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow should be set up for a seperate movie. Let this one be about the unit/team and give us teasers involving these two and thier history.

If theres one thing for sure this movie can have some epic fights. I also heard they got a pretty decent budget for this movie. More than what was exspected anyway.

You know, more money doesn't mean a better film. I wish directors would get that. There where movies made in the 80's and 90's that are classics and where made with not even half of the budget of say....something like I-Robot. I dont know when Hollywood adopted this notion that throwing more money at a movie, will automatically make it great.

Did some looking around briefly and couldn't find the script(any draft). But found the rumors that it is still up in the air as to who Scarlet will be with. shakes head

I also find it odd that they haven't given a casting for Cobra Commander yet. They could be waiting to announce it or still be looking but this is why I tihnk we haven't gotten name for him yet.

He won't be in the movie. Or at least not the first one. They seem to be building it up as Destro being the main villian, which would make me think that towards the end of this movie is when Cobra Commander gets involved (kind of like they did Megatron in transformers).

What do yall think? and how would you feel if Cobra Commdner was not in the movie (at least the first one).

#15 Posted by Quintus_Knightfall (84652 posts) - - Show Bio

How can he not be? That would be like keeping Megatron out of the Transformer's movie. Cobra Commander is Cobra, its right in his name for %$#@ sakes :P

Ahh...I looked up some info, and they say that Cobra will be like a puppet master so 99% chance we won't see him."

So his name may be in it, or at least some reference to him perhaps? Thats better then nothing.

Most likely one of the main villains (destro or baroness) will be caught at the end,and through interigation they will find out that cobra sent them, which gives them the right to make a sequel

I would be fine with it, but it would have to be set up right.

Movie 1; G.I. Joes are formed to fight the growing threat of terriosts, particularly the group known as Cobra. As far as the world knows at this point Destro is the main guy and doing all the dirty work(eg work). At the end set up a huge scene introduceing Cobra Commander. He comes out to set things right since the Joes messed up thier plans and Destro was incompetant in dealing with them.

Movie 2; Enter the Cobra. Things pick up as Cobra Commander now heads the front with his own hands. Things become mroe deadly and fights/threats larger. Builds up for a big showdown Joes VS Cobra, Cobra Commander vs Duke, Snake Eyes Vs Storm Shadow, etc. tons of fights with the leading cast members all going at it.

Movie 3; Tale of Ninjas, have it be the one to detail thier history and rivalry.

Again IDK just throwing ideas out that sound good in my head atm.

Snake Eyes was my favorite joe from the get go. When I saw his old figure in the stores when I was little with Timber his wolf I fell in love (with the wolf). Of course the character grew on me too later. lol

Scarlet has been my favorite character and always had a crush on her since I had a thing for red heads. Theres just something about a woman who can kick @$$.

#25 Posted by Quintus_Knightfall (84652 posts) - - Show Bio

Snake Eyes was, is, my fav to. But Storm Shadow is close and then Zartan is in there somewhere as well.

Hexagram 63

Hexagram 63 is named 既濟 (ji4 ji4), "Already Fording". Other variations include "after completion" and "already completed". Its inner trigram is ☲ (離 li2) radiance = (火) fire, and its outer trigram is ☵ (坎 kan3) gorge = (水) water.

That is a little weird.

Here's a nice little feature you may have seen.  No actual footage is used.  It makes me think it could be a decent movie. 

  

And just a reminder, if you've read the comics, adding to the character pages would be a great help (whenever a movie is coming out).
