With the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the rise of superhero media, everyone wants to see crossovers. Heck, there has already been speculation about the possibility of a GI Joe / Transformers crossover, since Hasbro and Paramount control both properties. But what about getting a little crazier? We recently spoke to the cast of Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins, and asked them who their ideal crossover would be with. They had some funny responses, with Snake Eyes himself (Henry Golding) filming for The Fast and the Furious, and Samara Weaving (who plays Scarlett) thinking about the Lord of the Rings.
The couple had some fun details to share with their ideas. We hope that turns into some wacky enough fan art in the coming weeks.
“How about a Dom and Snake Eyes side by side going to the moon in their [vehicles]? “Golding thought.” One on his motorbike, Toretto in his crazy Charger or whatever. Let’s do this. Let’s do Fast and furious times Snake-eyes. “
“What if we got something like the Lord of the Rings with Snake Eyes? Said Weaving. “A Tolkien / Snake Eyes mix, where there is magic, elves and hobbits but also crazy ninjas?” That would be pretty cool, maybe. “
In Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins, an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage welcomes tenacious lone Snake Eyes after saving the life of their heir apparent. Upon his arrival in Japan, the Arashikage teach him the ways of the ninja warrior while providing him with something he has always dreamed of: a home. However, when the secrets of Snake Eyes’ past are revealed, his honor and allegiance are put to the test, even if it means losing the trust of those close to him.
“I knew it was important for me as a person of Japanese descent to represent him in a way that I would like to see a child grow up, [where someone] as a younger version of me would be able to be, ‘Ah, that’s empowerment for them,’ “Andrew Koji, who played Storm Shadow in the movie, recently told ComicBook.” I did. a lot of research on samurai culture, et cetera. I think it was more about parallels with things like the Arashikage code and the Bushido code, and [Storm Shadow’s] kind of gradual decline of that, and the breaking up of the psyche. The person who becomes … I won’t say “bad”, but yes. He’s a pretty rich character to explore. “
