More details of some additional scenes from G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer

A couple of days ago I pointed out a HissTank poster named Snake Fox who reported that there were some additional scenes in the theatrical trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  Well, Snake Fox was cool enough to swing by GeneralsJoes’ comment page and report some more specifics about those changed scenes!

Also, it should be noted he is from the Philippines, so perhaps this is an international trailer?

The report can be seen below, and a big thanks to Snake Fox for giving us some additional details.  Us G.I. Joe: Retaliation addicts relish every second of additional detail we can get!

“hi justin,

had to watch MI4 again to be sure of what i saw. the trailer was probably for international release as im from the philippines. text on the end of the trailer showed 6.22.12

the additional scene on the lab fight showed SS sliding on his knees then joining his 2 swords as a double-bladed weapon (ala ROC final battle w/SE).

in another quick shot of SS, showed his white uniform which look-liked a jacket(but not a trench coat) with a hood at the back and no scabbards attatched…

now you know!”

Thanks, Snakefox!!

But rather than dwell on the faults we all know well, he elects to dive deeper and find ten things that G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra did right.  And he nails it.
