Henry Golding Shares First Look at His Snake Eyes

Recently, Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding celebrated his birthday and offered a gift to the G.I. Joe fans around the world. The actor took to Instagram to revealed the first look at his Snake Eyes character, which he will portray on the big screen for the first time ever in October. From what it seems, the ninja commando is climbing up to what looks like a Japanese temple, perhaps while completing his training. The production has recently started filming in Japan, so expect more images set in oriental exotic places to come in the near future.

Snake Eyes is the ninja commando known for his deadly ability with a sword and trench knives. However, his martial arts skills make him just as dangerous unarmed. Snake-Eyes lived in solitude in the High Sierras when the elite G.I. Joe team recruited him. His real name and backstory have long been sources of mystery. His outfit covers the scars on his body following a helicopter explosion, and he is typically portrayed as mute. To hide his face, he usually appears in a black mask and matching bodysuit. Ray Park portrayed the character in two prior G.I. Joe movies.

The film stars Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) as the titular ninja assassin. The rest of the cast sees Andrew Koji (Warrior) as Storm Shadow, Iko Uwais (The Raid, Stuber) as Hard Master, Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) as Scarlett, Úrsula Corberó (Money Heist) as Baroness, Haruka Abe as Akiko, as well as Takehiro Hira as Kenta and Steven Allerick (The Expanse) as the father of Snake Eyes.

Robert Schwentke (REDR.I.P.D.) directs the spin-off from a screenplay by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Bright 2The Huntsman: Winter’s War) with Jeff Waxman, Erik Howsam, David Ellison, as well as Dana Goldberg, Don Granger serving as executive producers. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner produce.

Snake Eyes will open in theaters on October 16, 2020. Are you glad that Snake Eyes has kicked off production? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
