I really like how he looks as well, at least from these initial pictures. I was looking at these pics again, and I was thinking I'd be going nuts about this if I saw these when I was growing up. Who knows how the movie will end up, but I hope it will be good. Like others have said, Snake Eyes should be cool at any rate. I'm really glad that Ray Park got that part. I was reading some people's responses on other (Joe related) boards, and its kind of funny. Most people seem to like it, but I saw a couple of comments saying "its too unrealistic, just like the comic/cartoon". Usually it seems like the complaint is "its too different from the cartoon/comic"
. We nerds are tough to please.
That brings up the question - how would you like to see the rest of the characters portrayed in a live action movie? Do you want Cobra Commander with a silver faceplate and/or hood, do you want Destro with a silver/metal head? How close to the comic (or cartoon) should the characters look? Just thinking about who we know is in this movie - I'm wondering how close their looks will be. Snake Eyes is obviously pretty close, but what about Duke, Storm Shadow, Baroness, CC, Destro, Zartan - or even just regular Cobra Soldiers if we see them?
