Two character featurettes for director Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation are now available. One centers on the Joe’s namesake, Joe Colton (Bruce Willis) who re-enlists to join the team in their fight against Cobra. While it’s fun to listen to Willis talk about playing with the titular toys as a kid, the really entertaining featurette centers on Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee). We get to see a revisit of the origin story between Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes (Ray Park), plus commentary from Lee, Chu, Park and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Definitely worth a watch, especially since we get a previously-unheard bit of dialogue from RZA.
Also starring Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson and Adrianne Palicki, G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens March 28th. Hit the jump to watch the featurettes.
