The ever creative Twitziller continues his countdown to the US premiere of G.I. Joe Retaliation with “the ninja duel!”
With the exception of the Sunbow animated series, nearly every incarnation of G.I. Joe has featured the Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow conflict. This pair of characters evolved into a classic Yin-Yang pairing– right down to their color schemes! From the epic battle in G.I. Joe Resolute to the famed encounter in the Silent Castle in G.I. Joe vol 1 #21, the inevitable duel of these characters is something that fans clamor for. Their encounters in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra were lackluster at best but the clips revealed thus far promise some truly epic action from the ninja sword brothers. (This time Snake Eyes won’t be stuck hanging onto the bottom of an SUV while Accelerator Suits hog the action.) Regardless of the outcome, any conflict between these two is bound to be rife with tension– and that makes for good viewing!
Check out the rest of Twitziller’s countdown images below:
Two weeks from today, many Joe fans should have already seen the film at midnight showings! The 28th cannot get here soon enough!
