In the absence of any trailers or preview footage of Paramount’s upcoming Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, it falls on Hasbro to give G.I. Joe fans their first real look at the cast of this prequel movie. Hasbro just unveiled a new wave of G.I. Joe Classified figures based on the new movie, offering an early glimpse of Henry Golding’s Snake Eyes, Andrew Koji’s Storm Shadow, Samara Weaving’s Scarlett and other movie characters.
These figures show the costumes in Snake Eyes aren’t straying far from the source material, with both Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow’s ninja costumes looking similar to the ones seen in 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and 2013’s G.I. Joe Retaliation. Scarlett’s suit, meanwhile, is reminiscent of her less colorful and more tactical look introduced in IDW’s G.I. Joe comics.
The biggest change in the movie may involve Snake Eyes out of costume. This iconic ninja hero rarely ever speaks or shows his face and is traditionally depicted as having horrific burns or facial scars. But the fact that this figure includes an unmasked head sculpt suggests we’ll be seeing a lot more unmasked Snake Eyes this time, which gels with Golding’s previous teases about his character. The question, of course, is whether Snake Eyes will make it through the entire film unscathed, or if this origin story will reveal how he got those scars.
Haruka Abe’s character Akiko is also included in this lineup. Little is known about Akiko, as she doesn’t appear to be based on a preexisting G.I. Joe character. But given her appearance and the fact that she’s wielding a double-bladed bo staff, we can probably assume Akiko is a member of Clan Arashikage alongside Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.
These figures are priced at $22.99 each and are expected to hit stores in October 2021, alongside the movie’s debut. Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins was originally slated for an October 2020 release before being delayed due to the pandemic.
“Ready or Not” breakout Samara Weaving will next feature in Lionsgate upcoming movie “The Valet”. The movie is a remake of the 2006 French film of the same name, as per The Hollywood Reporter. Weaving will star opposite Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez in the film, to be directed by Richard Wong of “Come as You Are” fame.
The story is about a movie star (Weaving) who enlists a parking valet named Antonio (Derbez) to pose as her lover to cover for a relationship with a married man. As a Latinx valet, the hard-working Antonio usually moves through the world anonymously, but through the ruse, he comes to be seen as the worthy person he always has been. Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher have penned the movie’s script.
Derbez and his producing partner Ben Odell are producing “The Valet” through their 3Pas Studios banner. Weaving most recently starred in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix series “Hollywood” and “Bill and Ted Face the Music”, co-starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. She will next star in “Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origina” and Hulu”s limited series “Nine Perfect Strangers”.
Previously played by Ray Park in both The Rise of Cobra and Retaliation, Snake Eyes is getting his own solo movie with upcoming G.I. Joe spinoff Snake Eyes, which had at one point been scheduled for release in March 2020. After dropping off the release schedule entirely due to the ongoing pandemic, Paramount has announced a brand new date today. Snake Eyes will release in theaters on July 23, 2021.
Deadline details the main cast, which includes Samara Weaving (Ready or Not)! Weaving is getting his very first action figure thanks to the movie, which you can preview below.
