So G.I. Joe: Retaliation has finally started releasing some still images of its cast and first up is fan favorite Snake Eyes (played by Ray Park). While Snake Eye’s overall look in the first film was spot on, his helmet was pretty much hated by everyone because of the molded lips. Why would they do that for a character known for not speaking? Seems like a Michael Bay move to me! It ranks right up there with the nipples on Batman’s uniform in Batman and Robin as one of the stupidest costume decisions ever. Thankfully they got it right this time by dropping the lips and amping up the cool! It’s just too bad they didn’t go with this look from the start. For those of you keeping score at home…that makes it G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - 0, G.I. Joe: Retaliation - 1.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is scheduled to premier in theaters on June 29, 2012.
