Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, Last Christmas) stars in the title role of Snake Eyes, the spinoff of Paramount’s G.I. Joe big screen franchise. In this film Snake Eyes seeks revenge for his father’s death by joining a ninja clan and in the process finds acceptance.
Snake Eyes is the silent ninja commando that first appeared in the 1980s as part of Hasbro and Marvel Comics’ relaunch of the toyline, dubbed G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.
The character, who dresses in all black, never reveals his face, and never speaks, stands apart from the rest of the military anti-terrorist group. He has a special relationship with Scarlett, for a while the team’s only female member, and carries out solo missions with his pet wolf, Timber. His archenemy is Storm Shadow, a ninja who is also his blood brother.
Evan Spiliotopoulos, the writer of the live action, 2017 blockbuster Disney movie Beauty and the Beast, wrote the script.
