Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) shows what makes her character Scarlett such a badass in Screen Rant’s exclusive clip from the digital release of Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins. The movie is currently playing in theaters and is now also available to purchase digitally and On Demand. It will be also available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on October 19.
Snake Eyes is the newest addition to the G.I. Joe franchise based on the beloved Hasbro toys. It tells the origin story of the titular character, played by Henry Golding. The film sets up the relationship between Snake Eyes and Tommy (Andrew Koji), the ninja of the Clan Arashikage who later becomes the antagonist Storm Shadow. Snakes Eyes also serves as an introduction to the wider Joe Universe with the inclusion of Scarlett (Weaving), a member of the G.I. Joe organization, and Úrsula Corberó as the Baroness from the evil Cobra.
Check out the exclusive behind-the-scenes clip below showing actress Weaving, G.I. JOE comic creator Larry Hama, and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura talking about the character of Scarlett. Hama says he based the character of Scarlett on his wife because she’s “practical and pragmatic” and “gets things done”. Weaving herself says she looks up to the character because she’s a “problem solver” who is “not too proud to ask for help”. The video also shows the cast on set performing stunts.
The clip is part of a bonus feature called “A Deadly Ensemble” showing the heroes, villains, and new characters in the G.I. JOE franchise. Other bonus features include deleted scenes, a short film about Snake Eyes’ sword Morning Light, “Enter Snake Eyes” about bringing the iconic character’s origin story to life, and “Arashikage” about the world of the elite ninja warrior clan. The bonus content will be available with the digital purchase of Snake Eyes as well as on the Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD editions.
