Lorenzo di Bonaventura talks up ninjas and The Rock for G.I. Joe Sequel

With casting revelations about Jinx and the Blind Master it should surprise no one that the G.I. Joe sequel will certainly feature an element of Ninja action. ¬†While this might make some fans a little squirrely, you can’t argue that ninjas have been at the core of the G.I. Joe mythology since the beginning (especially in the Marvel Universe) so it does make a measure of sense to keep them on the radar for the sequel.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke recently and reinforced that fact, making mention of a “Snake Eyes story” as well as a “Joe Story” which almost seems to indicate this might feature a bit of a Snake Eyes origin tale, or it will at least branch off somewhat from the main G.I. Joe military angle.

For anyone who was concerned that perhaps The Rock was just there as a quick cameo, you do not have to worry about that either, as Di Bonaventura assures us that he will be a main focal point of the sequel and will be one of the lead characters.  Check out the embedded video from Collider below.
