Snake Eyes is the most mysterious character in the first two movie adaptations of Hasbro's G.I. Joe franchise. Producers never unmasked the secretive character on-screen in either of the movies except for one fake unmasking in the first minutes of G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Snake Eyes was one of the few positives from both of the G.I. Joe movies, which is why the mysterious American hero got his solo film Snake Eyes, also known as Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins. A new trailer for the American superhero film dropped today.

Snake Eyes will be a subtle reboot of the movie franchise while also serving as the origin story of the mysterious character. The movie will answer most of the fans' questions about Snake Eyes, left unanswered in the first two films.

What to expect from Snake Eyes?

Snake Eyes was shown in the team of heroes in previous films, but his secretive identity is best-suited for an anti-hero rather than a saint. The movie trailer shows an unmasked Snake Eyes who is in a dilemma to choose his future path. So, Snake Eyes may be playing 'Good' rather than an anti-hero iteration of the character.

The path of the upcoming superhero flick's plot is relatively straightforward, as the movie will follow the early life of the titular character. The movie will show his early days of turning into a ninja and his childhood memories with his nemesis, Storm Shadow. The movie's trailer also featured plenty of physics-defying action sequences along with incredible ninja fighting sequences.

So it will be interesting to see how these sequences fare on-screen when the new G.I. Joe movie arrives in theaters.
