Byung-Hun Lee Discusses Storm Shadow's Resurrection In G.I. JOE: RETALIATION
The actor reveals that the upcoming G.I. Joe sequel doesn't offer a clear explanation for Storm Shadow's resurrection (though there will be a hint). He also reveals which side he'll be on in the film.
Over at Soompi, Korean actor Byung-Hun Lee (who plays Storm Shadow in the G.I. Joe films) talks about the character's return in the upcoming sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation. In 2009's Rise Of Cobra, Storm Shadow died, so many wondered how the character's resurrection in the sequel would play out after it was confirmed that Lee would reprise the role in Retaliation. While not saying much, Lee teases what we can expect in the film's explanation of the resurrection. "In the film, there is no separate explanation. However, there is a hint as to how ‘Storm Shadow’ resurrects."
Additionally, the actor praises the character of Storm Shadow, while also revealing if he'll be an ally of the Joes or the Cobra army. "I really like the role of Storm Shadow. In order to act him out, I studied his character history and he was the most charming character of G.I. Joe. In the film, there is a division between the Cobra army and Joes, however Storm Shadow does not really belong to either group. I liked the fact that the character was a lonely fighter."
