Probably the best thing about the first G.I. Joe movie, along with Snake Eyes, was his all-in-white nemesis Storm Shadow. In this new still from Retaliation he swaps his trademark sword for a big gun and a human shield..



A follow-up to the 2009 release of G.I. JOE: RISE OF THE COBRA, which grossed over $300M worldwide, Paramount Pictures, MGM and Skydance Productions, in association with HASBRO and di Bonaventura Pictures, commences production on G.I. JOE: RETALIATION. In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.


Apparently Lee is too have a much larger role in the sequel thanks to his much improved English. G.I. Joe Retaliation will be released on June 29, 2012.

@drob127

I bet theyre either gonna make him a clone...or they retrieved his body after his fall in part 1 and had him in a rehabilitation tank of sorts.

I Saw The Devil is a hell of a movie, very good flick! I also enjoyed The Good, the Bad and the Weird.

LET THIS BE GOOD.

It sucks that Storm Shadow didn't have more screen time in the first movie.

So it's good to hear he'll have a bigger part in this one.

@Ironman53 Pfftt, Cobra Kai bad ass? Cobrai Kai sucks! It's all about the Miyagi-Do Karate. :P

as long as he's not wearing a stupid white tuxedo jacket w/ penguin tales...

From the trailer, with him standing in front of those many tubes, etc., I have a hunch that this Storm Shadow might be a clone of the original. (Or maybe those tubes are mere recovery machines or whatever.) One shot also shows him standing next to Snake Eyes on a boat; perhaps this clone takes a Starkiller route like in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II...? Who knows. But this does look good. I can't wait to see how this is going to turn out.

@Demonhunter- TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!!!

Everyone should watch I Saw The Devil just once. Mind-blowingly awesome. There's still gray matter on my ceiling and walls. lol

Storm Shadow and SnakeEyes is the only reason I ever watched G.I.JOE as a child. Only reason I ever watched G.I.JOE.
