    I am so damn excited about the prospect of a G.I. Joe movie it's not even funny! What i'm not excited about is the countless ways Hollywood can **** this movie up like you wouldn't believe....

    Now, you would THINK that G.I. Joe battling Cobra would have...oh I dont know, one of the most important villains in the G.I. Joe mythos right?

    Could I be wrong? Are they making Destro the main focal point for villainy in this flick? If so can't say I'm overly impressed. Nor do I think the legions of G.I. Joe fans would be so impressed.

    That's like not having Megatron in the Transformers movie! :cmad:

    Somone, anyone confirm that one of the coolest toys and characters in G.I.Joe will be in the damn movie!

    I'm getting the vibe that he will be a behind-the-scenes puppet master. Meaning we will never really see him, but we will feel his presence. Then in the end he will make a cameo for the sequel. Sort of like a "If you want something done right! .. :cmad:"


    But yeah, so far it is pretty much hinted from script reviews that he is in there. ... A little.

    Dog Lips you are the man, thanks for the response! I am SOOO not impressed with CC being an Emperor Palp type character..I guess it's kinda cool, I mean if they did a Matrix or POTC thing where the sequel came out like next year...but ive already waited long enough for a G.I.Joe movie I wanna see Cobra Commander in action with is badass silver face plate Battle Helment! :cmad:

    Cobra Commander just doesn't seem like the type to step back and let Destro do his handiwork. He's an ego maniac bent on world domination and he is called Cobra COMMANDER so why not let him oh I don't know COMMAND

    True, but it's one of those things where you better hope there is a sequel... If not fans of the character will get snubbed. I'm sure that's the studios hope, with all the emphasis put on franchises these days, but you never know.

    Yes he is, but he's not really the Cobra Commander we know and love.

    I hope he's just not a behind the scenes kinda guy...


    I was hoping to see the Cobra hierarchy and it's various branches in work:

    Cobra Commander and the Crimson Guard
    Destro and M.A.R.S. (Military Armarments Research Syndicate)
    Zartan and the Dreadnoks.

    I hope he's not just walking around.

    So CC will be like Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget? That makes me sad.

    Well, if he acted as he did on the show, that would just be....yipes. A tad too foppish and crybaby-like. Sigma Six is an example of how I would like him to be portrayed, but his take is the only one. The rest of that show I hate.

    Possibly. There's no official news confirming he is Cobra Commander, just rumors. He's the only one out of the cast who's character hasn't been named yet. I think that's why some believe he's playing Cobra Commander.

    For all I know, Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn't even in the movie.

    If he is going to play Cobra Commander, I think we are likely to see a sort of "Rise of Cobra" storyline. Honestly, I can't wait!

    I heard one rumor of that little geek as CC, that makes no sense. Why have such a good cast then screw up one of the best villians ever!:cmad:

    It pisses me off that I can probably beat up movie CC. And I can't beat up anyone. :csad:

    CC is supposed to be a lightweight anyway, and hopefully he'll wear a mask.

    Doubt it. They wouldn't cast a young pretty boy then keep him under a hood or silver mask the whole time. But eh, I have no idea so I'll wait and see when we get some pics or more info.

    If he is indeed Duke's best friend at some point, then there's most likely going to be some scenes of him without the mask showing his friendship with Duke.

    So we probably will see what Cobra Commander looks like before the mask.

    The "Palpatine" references may be a close idea. He may be CC the whole time, running around unmasked with the Joes the whole movie as a seemingly good guy, but also in the dark barking orders at Destro in the hood/mask. Then of course a big moronic reveal at the end. Dun dun duuuuunnnnn!

    Eehhh... hopefully when he's in costume standing next to other characters he doesn't come off ridiculous looking like Dark Helmet. Maybe he should only be in shots by himself... and maybe give him a stool to stand on or something.
