Snake-Eyes Revealed!

AICN has two Snake-Eyes still images from the upcoming live-action G.I.Joe feature film up (with Ray Park snuggled underneath) and it looks pretty darn effin' cool, it does, besides the obligatory muscle-suit prevailant in all blardy-Hollywood genre-flicks of late, it still retains a parred-down feel without frills, except for the Arashikage ninja clan symbol on-shoulder and katana-blade (whoo-hoo!) and military-issue webgear = *noice* ... let's hope the rest of the crew can maintain this notion of design, maybe?

SHH reports: "He's the world's greatest ninja, but he's also next-generation. He's not afraid to use a sword one second, and a split-second later he's pulling out his Glock," (director; Stephen) Sommers told USA Today. "His chief nemesis is arguably the world's other great ninja, Storm Shadow. The two grew up together, were blood brothers and now are mortal enemies."

Sommers stressed that the movie is an origins story, so his challenge is to explain why the bad guy wears a metal mask, why Snake Eyes doesn't talk and other strange things kids took for granted. "For people who know nothing about it, it'll make sense," Sommers said. "And to people who love this stuff, it'll show where they all came from."

meanwhile, let's look at the pictures - photoshopped-brightened by yours truly
(would you ever have a doubt i wouldn't? :p)

nice snug hood - but someone's gotta explain the visor for me tho :p
Katana with Arashikage clan-symbol ("Arashikage" is Snake Eye's ninja-clan)
the ninja with a katana and a gun
strike a pose (a tad too buff for my ninja-tastes tho, IMHO)
