Because of its connection to the G.I. Joe franchise, it is unknown if Snake Eyes shall have a second installment, or if either will move forward at this time. While not officially confirmed yet, some speculate that even though Retaliation didn’t do well in theaters and received mediocre reviews, a new film for Snake Eyes may still be possible based on the popularity of the character and nostalgia from people old enough to remember when he was first introduced in 1984’s The Rise of Cobra.
The second film in the “Snake Eyes” series, Snake Eyes 2 tells the story of Storm Shadow and his best friend, Snake Eyes. In 1984 Los Angeles, Cobra takes action against Storm Shadow who is on a mission to join G.I. Joe and get revenge for being cast out by the Arashikage family in Japan years ago.
The concept of Snake Eyes was obviously intended to relaunch the G.I. Joe movie franchise with a fresh new direction and it lays the groundwork for future movies to expand on the universe if Hollywood is willing. Here’s everything we know so far about Snake Eyes 2.
Snake Eyes 2 Renewal and Release Date Details:
The sequel to “Snake Eyes” has yet to be announced and whether it will be a full-blown G.I. Joe movie or an installment in the beloved franchise is entirely dependent on how well “Snake Eyes” does at the box office.
The film will be greenlit for a sequel if the director manages to exceed its reported budget of $88 million. Plenty of questions remain about whether this will happen given the uncertain state of the movie industry in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic
However, there has been some movement with the next movie in the Snake Eyes/G.I. Joe universe. In May 2020, it was announced that a follow-up film is currently being developed and that both screenwriters Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse have contributed to the script of this upcoming film.
If Snake Eyes 2 (or G.I. Joe) happens, it likely won’t be released until 2023 at the earliest. The sequel went into production in late 2019 and was supposed to be released in 2020 before the pandemic postponed its release indefinitely.
Snake Eyes 2 Cast Details:
The cast members who are known to be the part of snake eyes 2 are as follows:
- Henry Golding
- Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow
- Samara Weaving as Scarlett
- Ursula Corberó as Baroness
With the two female characters, the writers strove to create an understandable universe encompassing a range of stories.
There is no indication that any of the characters from Snake Eyes 2 will be in a “team-up” movie, nor is there an indication if it will include Akiko (Haruka Abe), Hard Master (Iko Uwais), or Blind Master (Peter Mensah). There is no indication if the characters who make up the Arashikage clan in Snake Eyes will return for Snake Eyes 2 or a team-up flick.
Snake Eyes 2 Plot Synopsis:
Snake Eyes’ ending with the black-clad warrior chasing after Storm Shadow, and the film ended with each ninja taking a side in the G.I. Joe vs. Cobra conflict could be a natural bridge to another full-blown G.I.
Joe movie or lead into an entirely new story that focused solely on Storm Shadow’s pursuits for revenge that he ultimately uncovers at Snake Eyes’ dojo when he stumbles across The Hard Master’s journal detailing his methods of training Storm Spirit how to become not only one of their most powerful pupils but also his successor as leader of Clan Ninja in secret as well.
Snake Eyes skillfully established some of the sci-fi and fantastical elements of the 1980s G.I Joe animated series, including how Cobra is interested in Japan and what the Arashikage clan has to offer for them as a subplot. Furthermore, it showed how Snake Eyes eventually loses his voice while soon becoming silent this can be shown in Part 2 of this movie.
