I hope that’s true, Adler did a nice job on Resolute. I wish there was a sequel to that micro-series. Despite the change in direction, I can’t get excited for this one. The Rise of Cobra was just too deeply disappointing for me.
The two things that bother me the most from the second trailer are the spotty CG and the needlessly over-the-top ninja mountain battle.
While I don’t like The Rock be casting as the iconic Roadblock, I do like him being at the center of the movie. I can see him doing a good job conveying the affable working-class shtick that Larry Hama made so endearing in the comics. Plus, the involvement of a professional wrestler seems like a nod to Sgt. Slaughter’s membership in the 80’s. (Maybe The Rock should just be playing himself?)
At least all the Joe’s are American this time around.
