While G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra was out in theaters, either making nerds angry or regular folks satisfied, Paramount Pictures pretty much green-lit a sequel. From there, there were talks of Stephen Sommers returning to direct but as we learned earlier this month, Sommers won’t be part of the sequel.
It seems the good news keeps on coming as Lee Byung-Hun, who portrayed Storm Shadow, has signed on to reprise his role. Seeing that Snake Eyes was on one of the G.I. Joe 2 promotion image, we can expect some more ninja battles and hopefully less lips on the mask.
With the news of Storm Shadow returning and that Zombieland writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese is behind the writing, I have some hope that it’ll be at least better than the first one. What do y’all think of the news? Does this give you new hope for the sequel or is this still doom either way?
