DISCOVER ALL THE INFOS CONCERNING SNAKE EYES 2! RELEASE DATE, RENEWAL, AND MORE.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins serves as the launchpad for a second movie, Snake Eyes 2, or an all-new G.I. Joe movie, but will it happen? Snake Eyes updates how the warrior who is known only as Snake Eyes befriends Tommy Arashikage AKA Storm Shadow, heir to a powerful ninja clan.
As Snake Eyes tries to join the Arashikage and gain their trust, they are faced with the threat of the Yakuza and their leader, Kenta, who has been hunted by the Arashikage and wants revenge. As Kenta puts her plans into action, Cobra and G.I. Joe take action on what’s going on in Japan.
Snake Eyes clearly aims to revive the G.I. Joe franchise by giving it a new direction. The movie lays the foundation for the continuity of the characters and the expansion of the universe. We tell you all about the release of Snake Eyes 2.
WHAT IS THE RELEASE DATE FOR PART 2?
Despite the mixed reviews, the movie has enough charm to warrant a sequel. In May 2020, it was reported that a sequel to Snake Eyes was in early development, with Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse set to write the screenplay. However, no further update has been provided on the project to date.
And it’s possible that the producers waited until the movie‘s release before making official announcements regarding a sequel. Therefore, a second release for Snake Eyes seems to be a question of when not if. A mid-credits scene is also included in the movie, which further increases the chances of the sequel coming to fruition.
If a Snake Eyes sequel gets the green light, it might not be a sequel in the traditional sense, but a deeper dive into GI Joe’s mythology, building on the world created by Snake Eyes. Whatever form the sequel takes, it will technically always be a sequel to the solo film. Therefore, given its predecessor’s two-year production lead-time, Snake Eyes 2‘s release date could be set for 2023 at the earliest.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THE SNAKE EYES SUITE?
Snake Eyes ended with the black-clad warrior chasing Storm Shadow, and the movie ended with each ninja taking sides in the conflict between G.I. Joe and Cobra. Snake Eyes 2 could further develop the friendship between the two blood brothers that turned into a bitter rivalry, but the ending of Snake Eyes was a natural gateway to a full-fledged G.I. Joe movie as well.
Snake Eyes also subtly established some of the sci-fi and fantasy elements of the 1980s GI Joe animated series and there are some common threads involving Cobra’s interest in Japan and the artifact that the Arashikage clan that a sequel can follow in a GI Joe movie. Another crucial event that must be depicted in a sequel is how Snake Eyes loses his voice and becomes deafeningly silent.
