Those are a very odd positioning of scars. I mean, maybe they ended up on the opposite end of each eye by accident, right? Right?

All I can say is this, if he doesn't appear to us as the blond haired all American guy that Duke was (yes I'm saying dye his damn hair) I'm gonna be pissed...much like how I'm not happy that recent pics seem to show Sienna Miller won't have dark hair as Baroness.

you guys sound like a bunch of babies. grow up, that was 25 years ago. it's a modern take on the series. i recently watched some episodes of the old cartoon, and realized how insanely corny it was. it was fun when you were 10, but there's no way it could be adapted word for word, image for image of how it was then. think open-mindedly.

I hate arguments like that.

If thats the case, then lets give Batman a red costume, and maybe some superpowers...

or Transformers could actually be humans who turn into animals...

or James Bond could be an American FBI agent...

No one says it has to be word for word, but when you can't even stay true to the look and feel of the characters then you're missing the point.

If they wanted to make this movie, and not stay true to the characters (note I didn't say dialog) then why bother making it GI Joe? Why not call it "Delta Force" or something...

These are acceptable variations of Duke:

Thanks for the backup Mike...and yeah, Fillion (with a dye job) would have fit the bill nicely.

Batman's look has changed plenty in films. The Transformers looked far different than their comic counter-parts, but as much as you guys liked to *****, it still worked in the film. They took the basics of the characters and made them there own. James Bond doesn't even count, since he started off in movies. But directors make their own adaptation from previous movies and make their own. And for the most part, they're good films, minus a few.

You are judging a few set pics of a flashback scene where he's in civilian clothing, taking it out of context. You just assume that since this is the first we've seen of him, that he's going to look like that the entire movie. You want to see the GI-Joe you grew up with, and are being close-minded by not accepting minor changes to the look of the character. You have yet to see him in action, or even a picture of him where he is in action. To me, he looks like Duke minus the blonde hair, which I can live with. Same goes with the Baroness pics that were released, the scene is a flashback. You've yet to see her as the actual Baroness character, but you write it off already. I am waiting for actual footage before I make any judgements on whether or not they are "ruining my childhood"(which I find pathetic that you guys say). Directors and writers don't want to just be limited to previous material because that makes their movie boring and predictable. They want their own twist to the material, and if they have to make a few minor changes, then live with it. As long as the majority of the film is respectable to the orginal GI-Joe I don't see the problem. You guys are making far too big a deal out of nothing. (btw, I'm directing this towards all the people who are complaining, not just you personally).

You still fail to make a compelling argument for change. And all the movies befoer (TF and Bats) while they made minor changes, they stayed true to the character. Duke was meant to be the all American mid-western boy gone Grunt. He was meant to be blond to stand out from the rest of the darker featured characters...just like Optimus was meant to be a semi and Bats was meant to have ears on his mask.

Like I said, if they wanted to make this movie, and not stay true to the characters (note I didn't say dialog) then why bother making it GI Joe? Why not call it "Delta Force" or something...

As for the 'childhood' remark, I never said they ruined it, I said they were unnecessarily f***ing with one of my childhood heros...pardon me for having an affinity for something I grew up with. You got a problem with people voicing their opinions whether through appreciation or frustration, then you are in the wrong place there pally, because this kind of talk is what the Hype was born off of.

Well you cannot judge how the character is portrayed off of pictures that are not even in context. You have to see how the character acts in the movie. Look, I grew up with GI Joe, Duke was my favorite by far, but I'm not throwing a fit over some changes. I'm still waiting to see him in actual costume and doing something before I poo poo it.

I just think you guys need to be more open-minded about the direction of the movie.

I've seen nothing to make me believe that Tatum has the chops and commanding presence to play Duke. He looks like k-fed without tattoos.

You want to take all credibility these filmmakers have and flush it down the toilet? You put Nathan Fillion in this movie as Duke and you might as well label G.I. Joe as a B-movie failure like everything else Nathan Fillion has been the lead actor in.

Sigma 6 Duke is NOT an acceptable version.

Best quote ever and it belongs on t-shirts nationwide.

And I thought the same thing.

He's working with the director again on a MTV-like film, which should be a disaster.

Serenity and Waitress are hardly B-movies. Sure he's been in some bad films, but he's an excellent actor with real star potential. He's one blockbuster away from hitting big-time.

Frankly, this movie is looking more and more like Fillion is too good for it anyway.

Wow, like Channing Tatum has this massive amount of legit performing cred with movies like STEP UP and SHE'S THE MAN! What a hell of a thespian right there!
