 Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins – Official Movie Logo Released!
We have some exciting news to report today as Paramount Pictures has released the official G.I.Joe Snake Eyes movie logo. The interesting part of the logo is that it says 'G.I.Joe Origins', which I would take to mean that there are more origin stories on tap in the future if this movie is a success. What do you think of the logo? Let us know below. Snake Eyes: G.I.Joe Origins hits theaters later this year.

Logo looks meh, who would of guess it be a ninja logo we seen a billion times. I still feel this movie is going to be a big middle finger to all the fans. I also disagree with the whole let's make SE asian.

I think making him Asian is a retarded idea. But hopefully we won't see much of his face or hear him talk after this film.

We already have "the" origin of Snake-Eyes. Just hoping for a good story. This could be "another" origin story.

We might need to approach this like flipping through someone else's YouTube or Instagram. We can enjoy the scenario or story they convey without being offended that it doesn't fit the established Hama-verse.

I have never seen anyone comment on a photo of Doc. "Wait! You can't have a picture of Doc. He's dead!!"

That being said, would there not be an outrage if a film was made and they cast Roadblock or Doc as Caucasian? I daresay there would.

Destro was Scottish. Should he ever be cast as Russian? No.

You can see where I'm going.

I would have preferred if movies could have followed established backgrounds, but simply moved the timeline up to current. Instead of Vietnam, have the protagonists having met in Kuwait, Iraq or Afghanistan. People, it isn't that hard. I could use the thoughts in my head, and the Hama stories I have read and turn it into a script...Okay, I would probably need help from Skinny, but pretty sure it wouldn't be that challenging.

We have seen variations on these origins in him getting hurt trying to save the Hard Master rather than the helo accident.

I would rather the movie franchise have a Special Missions theme. Then you don't need to keep recycling the same actors. Different missions, different characters. Not just Snake-Eyes, Duke, Scarlett, etc.

Get a scenario built, grab some Joe code-names from the roster. Use the filecards as if they were the biblical. Feel free to create some new characters, but keep the ones you picked nearly exactly from the file-cards. Don't change their gender, ethnicity, background.

As a lead up to the film, tweet out old file-cards with a pictures of the actors/actresses portraying them. And insert old-style file-cards of any new characters.

Or they can take iconic character names and completely re-write them.
This might end up a G.I.Joe and Snake-Eyes film "in name only."

--- --- --- --- --- ---
It would be like if they rolled out a new Marvel Avengers film
and they cast Spiderman as a billionaire heir from Gotham
whose Aunt May was having an affair with Ned Stark
and they both got killed in a botched robbery
and then before the bad guy made it to the end of the street,
a female Punisher Ahsoka used a light saber to lop off his noggin.

But it ends up a brooding, psychological thriller
with vivid dream sequences of him
finding a spider scarab pendant from Cleopatra
that gives him Spider-like properties that he only uses in his dreams
to carry out revenge
that he missed out on.

Then he wakes up and goes to the therapist to deal with the consequences of skipping his meds again.
--- --- --- --- --- ---

Trust me, it will be great!! (This is so run-on I had to break it up with bizarre line breaks...)

We have to get behind this film and promote it like crazy if we want to see G.I.Joe make a come back. If Snake Eyes only has a mediocre response then G.I.Joe is perma toast. Its kind of like eating your broccoli to get to the chocolate cake. We just need to get as many people as possible to go buy the broccoli.
