Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins finds the Crazy Rich Asians star suiting up as the titular ninja from the world of the Hasbro toy line. The origin story reveals how a man with no direction in his life finds a new purpose as a deadly warrior, putting him square in the middle of a larger battle. Henry Golding will make his debut as another stealthy character in a black suit.
In Snake Eyes, Henry Golding is brought into an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage when he saves one of their own (Andrew Koji). If he can pass the three challenges of the warrior, he gains access to the clan’s knowledge and power, which is apparently rather vast.
The trailer also provides a hint about how the G.I. Joe universe will be re-established in this movie. Not only is there a mention of Cobra, but we get a glimpse of Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) as Scarlett and Úrsula Corberó (Money Heist) as The Baroness, two classic characters from the G.I. Joe toy line, animated series, and comics.
